The Langley Schools Music Project-Innocence & Despair The Langley Schools Music Project-Innocence & Despair

The Langley Schools Music Project is a collection of recordings of a children's choruses singing pop hits by the likes of The Beach Boys, David Bowie, and Paul McCartney. The albums were originally recorded in 1976–77, Then they were re-released in 2001 as a compilation called Innocence & Despair. The album instantly became a cult hit and a notably successful example of outsider music. It gives me goosebumps listening to these children sing their little hearts out!

VH-1 coordinated a reunion of Fenger and dozens of his former students in 2002, and produced a documentary about the project. When Spike Jones approached Karen O to write the soundtrack to Where The Wild Things Are, he gave Innocence and Despair as an example of the desired "simple melodies that were emotionally complex—something that both kids and adults would appreciate".
