The first account of children's songs appearing in history probably dates the times of fire by sticks and the first wheel. Mothers have been soothing their babies to tone since the beginning of time and 'neh neh neh neh neh' seems to have no language barriers in the popular school yard tease.
The sounds of plinks and tinks, swishes and swooshes and bells and whistles are fun and upbeat tones that have been used to accompany some of the top classics like The Farmer in the Dell, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Frere Jaques, alongside more recent melodies like the infamous 'backpack backpack, backpack backpack.'
Paul J. Smith and Leigh Harlene were the first to compose a soundtrack set to a children's cartoon in the 1937 Classic "Snow White," providing much more auditory pleasure than the silent movie version of 1902, and paving the way for some of greatest children's songs to become some of the greatest chart toppers. Aladdin was the first children's movie soundtrack to reach #1 in 1992, and was followed by a long line of billboard busting successors such as 'The Lion King', 'Pocahontas' and 'Frozen.' The songs, sounds and tunes seem to have limitless outreach to the world of children and adults alike.
