Once upon a time a mother sang and danced with her little girl in her arms, and together they started writing a song they called BALLOONS. Although they had only a chorus, the young girl carried the song in her heart for many years until she grew up, got married and eventually became a mother herself...
When Judianna Castle and her husband singer/songwriter/producer Buddy Castle learned they were expecting a child, Judianna was inspired to begin writing songs again for her baby. By the time their daughter Amy was two years old she had enough melodies and lyrics for an album.
Buddy started arranging and recording the tracks for the yet untitled album and decided to enlist the help of their long time friend, veteran writer/arranger Dick Williams. For the next three years Dick worked together with Judianna and Buddy in the couple''s home studio refining and arranging the songs, and writing additional verses, bridges and intros when they were needed. Judianna shared the story of BALLOONS with Buddy and together they finished writing what had gone unfinished for so many years, presenting the completed work to Judianna''s original cowriter/mother Olga as a birthday present and, ultimately, making BALLOONS the album''s title track.
Here''s what people are saying about BALLOONS:

my hat''s all the way off!"

My daughters Sadie and Danielle play BALLOONS for hours on end.
They insist on playing it for playtime and bedtime.
The girls know all the songs by heart, especially "You''re My Honeybunch".
They practice their dance lessons to the tape.
BALLOONS is a magical tape that will touch any child and parent''s heart. - Teresa Groak
Our daughter Julene LOVES it and so do we! Thank you so much. We sing the Good Morning and Good Night songs to her, as well as others. I can''t tell you how much we love these great songs! Keep it up! -Drew, Annette and Julene Jessel
My mother-in-law gave me this tape after I had my daughter (Emma Claire, born July 26, 2000) and Emma just loves it!! She especially likes listening to it in the car. Unlike most babies, she doesn''t like being in her car seat or in the car. It''s the ONLY time she kind of fusses. Other than that, she''s consistently happy!! I put your tape in while driving to work one morning, and she instantly was talking and cooing. She just loves it! My husband got tears in his eyes when he heard it. (So did I). I''ve e-mailed everyone I know who has small children or are due to have children your link to order the tape. This is the sweetest thing I''ve ever heard. I wish everyone in the world could hear this; they would embrace their children on the spot and never want to let go. Thank you for your heart-felt, amusing music. We really enjoy it...all of us. - Andrea Thornton (and Emma Claire) :-)
I just wanted to let you know that two years ago I ordered a Balloons tape for my grandson and one for myself. We have so enjoyed the music and both my grandson and his little sister who has been born in the meantime both go off to sleep listening to this music. Now I am looking forward to the birth of a third grandchild and have ordered a CD for this new little one coming to join our family. There is only one word to describe this product----wonderful. Thank you. -Theresia Smolevitz
I''m a 70 year old grammy who received the BALLOONS tape for my birthday. My daughter had let me hear it on her computer and I was worse than a kid, saying "play it again" over and over. I could just picture the sweet child that was singing and couldn''t hear it enough. I got lots of lovely presents for my birthday, but none that pleased me more than this tape. In this crazy age with people abusing and abandoning children, it is wonderful to hear someone sing to a beloved child. Mine were the light and joy of my life and I can still remember how sweet they were when they were little. This tape makes a great gift for a baby shower. All the songs are great but "Cuppycake" is my favorite! Thanks for a breath of fresh air! Sincerely,
- Evelyn Poynter
