It’s a bumpy road.

“It’s not bumpy road, Mama! It’s BUMPY! CAR!” Forget that the lyrics actually say, “It’s a bumpy road,” and the name of the song is not Bumpy Car, but Bumper Car. There is no rationalizing with a two-year old about one of his favorite car tunes.


Bob Log III album: My Shit is Perfect.

Bumper Car can be found on Bob Log III’s 2009 album, My Shit is Perfect. Don’t let the stickers fool you though. Bob Log III is not known for writing songs for a kids audience. In fact, many people will likely blush and/or be offended when they first listen to Bob Log III’s catalog. But don’t let those puritans scare you away. He’s a one man band, he has a fun stage presence, and he plays some serious blues slide guitar. For the purposes of this blog, he also happens to have created a good Tot Rocker.

Tot Rocker #20: Bumper Car by Bob Log III

Great concert poster, right? And it glows in the dark.

Reasons it’s a Tot Rocker: Bumper Car (probably not about bumper cars) has simple lyrics and it’s easy to sing along, kids like songs about cars, it’s a fun song, and it’s nearly impossible to listen to it without wagging your head back and forth.

Kind of Tot Rocker: Awake Baby– pretty sure BLIII makes only songs of the Awake Baby variety.

0If you get a chance to see him live (head’s up Canada and Midwest US), the show will be totally worth the price of admission.

Other Tot Rockers by Bob Log III: Bump Pow! (awake baby), Mr. Sis Boom Bah (awake baby)

Similar Tot Rockers: Dodger by Koerner, Ray and Glover, All ‘Round Man by Dave Alvin (Bo Carter)

Get to know Bob Log III.      Make friends with Bob Log III.     Bump. Pow.
