You can get a much higher quality recording of ditties by sharing them 
to Twitter, then using Youtube-DL to download the resulting Twitter 
video URLs. That's the only way I know of to get a first generation 
copy. As played through Amazon Echo, a lot of treble is lost.

I, too, wonder what voices they're using to sing. The fact that it can 
sing whatever you throw at it means they're not using a huge library of 
samples or something.
