    Kindie music tour-de-force Play Date - husband and wife duo Greg Attonito (singer of punk legends The Bouncing Souls) and singer-songwriter Shanti Wintergate - are back with We All Shine; a new collection of dreams and wishes, wrapped in infectious melodies and empowering lyrics that will get the whole family boppin’, creepin’, singing and dreaming.

    Their previous release, the award-winning Imagination, hit all the right notes - earning the type of accolades that only come when you’re on to something special:

    • Winner, 2014 Parents Choice Award - Parents, who enjoy the folk pop of The WinterPills, or The Nields, will find a similarly minded, fun filled band for their children in Play Date.
    • Winner, 2014 Creative Child’s Seal of Excellence Award - Imagination is a whimsical collection of feel-happy songs.

    Play Date’s new record - We All Shine - is light, soulful, stylish, and unforgettable. From the sly “Stevie the Fox”, to the super-sneaky rap lullaby “Ninja Pajamas”, to the undeniably heart-filling “L-O-V-E You” - these songs may have been written for children, but they glow with a sophistication that will surprise and convince even the grumpiest grownups and snobbiest music snobs. Hummable hooks and groovy grooves; mischievous melodies for all ages. Flecks of garage rock, dancehall, pop, synth, Patsy Cline and They Might Be Giants. It’s children’s music that doesn’t insult children, or their grown-ups. When the kids pass out in the back seat, mom and dad won’t want to change the music.

    So set your awesome music tunes downloader machine to fun, and get ready for We All Shine.

Ninja Pajamas

I’m getting tired
Yeah me too but I’ve got my Ninja Pajamas
Yeah, Yeah I got some too
Let’s do this

Chorus
Gonna sleep sleep sleep in my Ninja Pajamas
Dream real sweet in my Ninja Pajamas
I look so neat in my Ninja Pajamas
Until the sun until the sun comes up again
until the sun comes up again

I got a kung fu grip and everybody knows
you sleep in pajamas not in your clothes
My Ninja pj’s make me invisible which means
you can’t see me but if you want
You can be just like me be just like me be just like me
With my Ninja pj’s by the bedside I put em on, I get quiet inside
I feel the strength of a silent mountain
my love’s overflowing like a great big fountain
Bed time’s here now I’m at peace
deep with myself and the world’s heartbeat
See you in the morning maybe in my dreams
I’ll be there in the cosmic stream

Chorus

Some think Ninjas are only boys
but I know better yes I know better
Like a cat in the night sometimes I take flight
jumping high and low so silently I go
Side to side around upside down
I always land with my feet on the ground
I stay centered thats how I do it
calm my mind let my fears unwind
Girls got style girls got grace
girls got a Ninja suit made out of black lace
And just like water I go with the flow
I’m all Zen from head to my toes

Chorus

Ninja pajamas Yeah Yeah Yeah Ninja Pajamas

When its bed time I get ready for dreams
action adventure stealth and speed
Bedtime snack then I brush my teeth
then I dress what does my imagination reach
Ninja pajamas easy as a walk in the park
cuz ninjas aren’t scared of the dark
Ninjas love shadows now I do too
because ninjas like me know sweet ninja moves
Night light too so I sleep with ease
off to dream land where I feel the breeze
I battle dragons and climb the trees
and spy on the pirates who sail the seas
Doing all kinds of cool ninja stuff
doing sweet flips swinging nunchucks
Til the sun comes up and I open my eyes
I have the greatest dreams
And thats why I’m gonna sleep

Chorus
