If you are looking for fun and uplifting music that isn’t just for kids but will entertain the kids just the same, you’ve got to check out Leftover Cuties Places To Go album! You might have heard of them when the band’s cheerful tune “Smile Big” debuted in a Samsung Galaxy S III commercial, which you can watch here, during the Opening Ceremony on July 27th. Yes, that song!   This track highlights the band’s signature sound, showcasing ukelele, brushed drums, double bass, and trumpet.

Leftover Cuties makes playful music that harkens back to carefree times yet still sounds modern.

Leftover Cuties Places To Go album review

My daughter’s favorite song, one that I’ve sung to her at bedtime almost since the day she was born, is You Are My Sunshine.  Leftover Cuties rendition of the song has motivated me to do a better job at singing her favorite song to her at bedtime every night.   Their version of the song, featured on their album Departures, is what I call modern-retro but may be a little too sexy for a bedtime song. 😉

Go ahead, download Leftover Cuties songs on iTunes and I can almost guarantee that you and your kids will love them.  Play their songs on your next road trip, while you’re cooking dinner, or folding laundry.  Whenever.  You can count on being cheered up as soon as you play Leftover Cuties.  Your toes will start tapping, your grin will turn upside down, and you just might start dancing!

It is my opinion that Leftover Cuties creates Mom friendly music!  Moms need uplifting, fun music and Leftover Cuties provides just that for busy, on-the-go moms.

Shirli McAllen, Leftover Cuties singer, says:

“We are thrilled that our song was chosen for this unique ad and honored that it is airing during such an important time as the Olympics. “It still feels surreal.”

Leftover Cuties recently released a covers EP, Departures featuring takes on tunes by Etta James, Coldplay, Lady Gaga and more.  Take a few minutes to watch a few of Leftover Cuties’ videos on YouTube.  Their energy is fabulous!  I promised myself I wouldn’t pressure myself too much to sound like Shirli when signing You Are My Sunshine to my daughter at bedtime, but it’s so hard to not try at least. 🙂

I’ll be keeping an eye out on their tour schedule in hopes of seeing Leftover Cuties during a future visit to Atlanta, GA!
