Jack Johnson: 'I'm Curious George'

Surfer-turned-singer JACK JOHNSON had no problem coming up with songs for kids film CURIOUS GEORGE because he has always felt like the curious monkey of the title. The catchy soundtrack was a big hit for Johnson earlier this year (06) and he admits it was easy to write tunes for the film. He says, "I identify with the monkey. He is like a little nature's child. He runs around the jungle and he comes to the big city and he's so curious about it all. "I grew up in Hawaii and it wasn't like we were wearing loincloths and living in shacks or anything, but Santa Barbara (California) felt like a big city to me. "Anytime I go to LA or New York, it's so wondrous to see all the craziness. I identified with his (Curious George) excitement and being overwhelmed."
