“She’s the Octomom!” and “Leave her Alone!” are two of the songs on a new CD by songwriter/songwriter Karen Sokolof  Javitch.cd-cover_octuplets_page_1

Now before you get all wound up, Javitch says she is doing this to raise money for the kids. She also knows she’s gonna take some heat. “I realize we can all cut her down,” she says, “but the babies are here, so let’s try and be positive.”

Karen contacted Nadya’s attorney and was told that he and Nadya love the songs. She just posted a video on Youtube of her song “Here in the Nursery” (which is now stuck in my head) with footage of Nadya with the octuplets. .

Some of the songs on the cd are re-tooled numbers from ”Princess Diana, the Musical,” which Karen wrote after Di was killed in a car crash fleeing from the paparazzi (it still sells in London). Kind of like how Elton John retooled his song “Candle in the Wind” for Di when it was originally for Marilyn Monroe.

Here’s a stanza from the song “Leave me Alone!” I can’t go any place without you flashing in my face! Whether I’m with my kids, my friends or grocery shopping, you are there, everywhere in my hair! It’s just not fair! It’s just not fair!

Karen says she was in bed at her home in Omaha one night when visions of the octuplets flashed in her head. She couldn’t sleep and went downstairs to her computer to start writing. “I’ve been following her. For some reason it’s a little mesmerizing for me. I don’t know why.”
