Music Monday – Lisa Loeb

Lisa Loeb’s version of this popular tune from Meatballs appears on Camp Lisa, her 2008 album of camp songs.

Lisa Loeb explains why she made Camp Lisa on the camplisa.com website:

“The Camp Lisa record is basically as close as I can get to a time machine. This music takes me back to my pre-teen years, which are probably more similar to even younger kids’ lives today. I wanted to remember some traditional songs and write some new camp-themed songs that could take you from leaving home, through your camp days, to saying goodbye until the next time. In the recording process with my songwriter/musician friends, Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty, the music made me realize that I’d love to share the camp experience with kids who might not normally have the opportunity to go to summer camp, and in this first year, we found S.C.O.P.E., is a well- established organization who can help The Camp Lisa Foundation succeed in this great dream! A portion of the proceeds of the album sales go to the Foundation, and you can find out other ways to contribute too, if you look on-line at LisaLoeb.com.”
