The Music Machine

A long, long time ago, before the time of Veggie Tales, there was Music Machine...

Quinn's parents have been telling me about Music Machine for a few months, Quinn had Music machine cassettes with read-along books as a child. Quinn's parents seemed to like the message of music machine which goes through the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness (humbleness) and temperance (self-control).

So, for Caden's baby dedication, naturally, he received from them the gift of Music Machine CD's and Character Builder DVD. The CD's are songs about the Fruit of the Spirit and the DVD is short animations of them (character building).

I really like them. Caden has other music cd's, but considering this one is from the 80's, its done really well and I can "stand" the music :) ...the message it sends out is second to none.

Caden and W during the day, dance away to the music. The first time I played the cd's for them, they danced steady for 4 songs straight!! it was quite impressive. (I show them the moves ;)

Music Machine - Agapeland or you can buy them at Hull's in Winnipeg.

Just one of my fav songs (can't find on youtube):

Glad to be me:

One day I went to school and met,
To my surprise
A new kid, just my age
With muscles twice my size

And when I looked at him
I wished that I could be
Big and strong and tall instead of little me
(but then I thought)...

I never saw a pig flying like a bird
To see a bird with teeth
Would surely be absurd
I never heard a horse get hoarse
From tryin' to sing
I never saw a turkey wish that he was green

And I'm so glad to be
Just who God made me
I envy nobody
'Cause God made me special as can be

So if you ever wish
That you were someone else
Here's how to be content
Just to be yourself
Remember there is no one
Anywhere like you
So if you need advice
I'll tell you what to do
(Just think of this)

You never saw a mouse
Meowing like a cat
You never met a snake

Who wanted to be fat
You never saw a fish wish
He could be a frog
You never heard a turtle
Barking like a dog

I ordered the cds a year or two ago. I grew up with them too. But haven't seen the DVD - how long is it?

Surely you could video yourself doing "the moves" and post it on your blog for the rest us Music Machine Lovers!

Have patience, have patience, don't be in such a hurry, when you get impatient you only start to worry! Remember, remember that God is patient too and think of all the times when others have to wait for you!

recording those moves would be the death of me, you'll have to get the boys to wear secret shirts with cameras in them or something ;)

We got a set of 8 DVD's with 16 episodes, total running time is 189 minutes, I guess thats 12 minutes an episode, they seem longer than that, I think.

great songs, even timely messages in my day sometimes, gotta go!

We always sang the have patience song in Sunday School! I probably heard more of those songs and didn't even know it.

Sounds like a good set! I should check them out.
