Someone turned classic tracks from the Get Up Kids and Saves The Day into kids’ songs, and they’re kinda adorable

2090

As the emo genre continues to age (somewhat) gracefully, that means its fans keep getting older, too—and that usually means people who used to wear tight pants, dye their hair black and get nautical star tattoos are starting to procreate. This has opened up a whole new world of children’s music possibilities—for example, there’s Sparrow Sleeps, which is a rad project that turns classic songs from Blink-182, Alkaline Trio, Thrice, Taking Back Sunday and more into full-on instrumental lullabies for your sleeping infant. But what if your child is at the age where they can understand lyrics, but you really, really don’t want to buy them a Raffi record? Presenting the new split EP between Saves The Daycare and the Get Up Dads. We have no idea who is actually responsible for this, but man oh man is it great. STDC turn Saves The Day’s acoustic love song “Hold” into a song about learning the alphabet, and TGUD strip down the Get Up Kids’ Something To Write Home About staple “10 Minutes” and make it about not wanting to go to bed. You can purchase the two-song split digitally here—and as a bonus, all proceeds go to music education charity Little Kids Rock. If you’re still reading this and not already pressing “play,” what is your major malfunction?
