What is Kid Albums?
Kid Albums, known as Top Kid Audio previously, is a music chart in the United States that is printed by Billboard magazine weekly. It ranks or lists best selling albums for children’s music in the country, and it started on the September 9, 1995 issue of the magazine in which it tracks top 15 best kid albums up until now. The albums are ranked according to point-of-purchase sales acquired by Nielsen Soundscan data and from authorized downloads from digital music retailers.
The said chart contains full albums of children’s music aimed at targeting kids and younger teens. The featured children’s music has different genres like lullabies for babies, original sound tracks for children’s movies (films mostly for children aged 5-9 years old), teen pop, and others. Compilation albums, EPs, and studio albums are also tabulated by the chart.
Children’s music musicians
Children’s music has ceased for the last 18 years, but it has been born again thanks to its performers and musicians. Starting from Dan Zanes through Elizabeth Mitchell, these musicians who were into rock music and who are parents now wrote and composed incredible children’s tunes and melody. And some other musicians have also made its way to kiddie music.
Due to the evolution of technology, these musicians do not depend anymore on recording companies to release their compositions. They can already produce or record their children’s music through the Internet, the eight-track recorder, and burning of CDs. And nowadays, there are already a few online children’s music stores that parents can choose from.
Published children’s music
The development of the famous music-publishing business led to the beginning of children’s songs. And some popular children’s songs are Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Edward G. Nelson and Ira Shuster and School Days by Will Cobb and Gus Edwards. And probably, the most remembered children’s song now is Teddy Bears’ Picnic with lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy in the year 1932 and tuned by John William Bratton, a British composer, in 1907.
In the 1930s-1950s, recording companies were still producing children’s music albums, and companies like Columbia Records, RCA Victor, Capitol Records, and Decca Records released albums based on famous nursery rhymes and cartoons, in which kids enjoy until today.
