This whole CD, accompaniment to the children’s book The Worst Band in the Universe, was far, far better musically than it had any business being. I suppose, thinking about it now, that children’s music ought to be held to a much higher musical standard simply because children are so prone to inflict it on repeat on those around them.

just beyond the edge of infinity
back before the dawning of time
history had yet to get on with it
stars had not yet started to shine
