Upside Down

Album: Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George (2006)
Charted: 30 38
  • Johnson recorded the soundtrack for the 2006 movie Curious George. This song went well with the movie, as Curious George was a monkey who was often hanging upside down and looking on the world in wonderment. The song had appeal far beyond the movie, as the gentle message of looking at things from a different perspective resonated with listeners. It became Johnson's first Top 40 hit, and helped the Curious George soundtrack become the first soundtrack to an animated film to hit #1 since Pocahontas in 1995. >>

  • Camille from Toronto, OhEasy, breezy tune in a John Mayer style. Very subtle and pleasant to listen to. Timeless as well.
  • Ben from Sudbury, OnThis is one of my favorite songs because it has a very soothing tempo and rhythm. It won't make you plug your ears and I would say it rates number 5 on my favorite lists
