Rob Compton A.K.A. Babaloo quit his "real" job over a decade ago in order to spend his days making kids laugh. And what kid could keep from laughing with songs like I Lost My Pants in the Swimming Pool, Don’t Pass the Gas, or Gorilla in the Middle of my Bedroom Floor? He even won an international songwriting contest for his tunes, The Wee Wee Dance, and My Toothbrush Fell in the Toilet. These are just a few of the upbeat, hilarious tunes found on Babaloo’s two cds, Bean Bag Bop and Room For Everyone. Don’t worry, you’ll also find uplifting songs dealing with sharing, acceptance, and character issues. But they’re never overly-sweet or corn-syrupy.
Babaloo’s unique ability to connect with kids has resulted in cd sales worldwide and a good deal of recognition, including …..
~ First-place and Second-place winner of the 2008 International Songwriting Contest
