Songs for the Young at Heart is a children's music album put together by Stuart A. Staples and Dave Boulter, both from the band Tindersticks. It features a number of classic children's songs, stories, and nursery rhymes set to music, and features vocals from a number of famous artists.
Boulter states that the inspiration for the album came after the birth of his son, when:
"I began thinking of songs and nursery rhymes from my own childhood to play to him. I realised there was a lot of interesting and almost forgotten music, from the school room, the radio, and the television, that maybe was the reason I'd begun to make my own music in the first place."
