LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Valentines Day is traditionally for lovers but now it is also for laughers as Ruth Roberts Music re-releases the kid-friendly tunes on “Valentine Songs That Tickle Your Funny Bone,” now available on iTunes and Amazon.
“Good old-fashioned sing-a-longs never go out of style,” says Susan Nicoletti, Director of Operations for Goldenrod Music, the publishing company overseeing Roberts’ songs. “People will find the tunes on this collection to be fun for everyone, even the very youngest family members. And in addition to being cute songs, they are all G-Rated,” Nicoletti adds. She has an excellent idea of what “G-Rated” means because for 5 years prior to working with Ruth Roberts Music she was on the ratings board for the Motion Picture Association of America.
About Ruth Roberts
Ruth Roberts wrote songs in many genres, including pop, gospel, rock, blues, country, sports, and children’s music. Every sports fan knows some of Roberts’ work, from “Meet the Mets” to “It’s a Beautiful Day for a Ball Game” to “Mr. Touchdown, USA.”
Roberts’ love songs were often on the charts in recordings by such stars as Dean Martin, Debbie Reynolds, Theresa Brewer, Jimmy Dean, The McGuire Sisters, Patti Page, Vic Damone, Arthur Godfrey, Steve Allen and Eydie Gorme.” In addition, movie and TV viewers have heard Roberts’ songs in “Yes Man,” “The Benchwarmer,” “A Dirty Shame,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Seinfeld,” and the Conan O’Brien show.
Fans of the Beatles probably know that the Fab Four recorded ‘Mailman Bring Me No More Blues,’ which is on the ‘Anthology 3′ album. But they may not realize that song was written by Roberts. “The Beatles weren’t the only ones covering that song. There are also versions by Buddy Holly, Oliver Nelson, and Lefty Frizzell,” says Nicoletti.
It is for children’s music that Ruth Roberts may be best known, starting with her work with Bob Keeshan, who was the TV icon Captain Kangaroo. “Teachers and educators can discover more about the many musicals written by Ruth Roberts for a K-through-grade-6 curriculum,” states Nicoletti.
