Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this this collection of silly songs is all about being wacky and funny and having a good time with music. A few songs have positive social messages and there's even some learning thrown in (the Count doing his arithmetic for example).
What's the story?
For Sesame Street fans who've longed for SILLY SONGS to reappear on the music scene, the wait is over. After nearly 15 years, the Sesame Workshop classic is being re-released with all the favorite tunes in the line-up, like "The Honker-Duckie-Dinger Jamboree," "The Transylvania Polka," and the "Monster in the Mirror." Those not familiar with the Sesame ensemble can expect a CD full of wacky noises, upbeat tracks, and all the favorite residents of the famous address making appearances on the album.
Is it any good?
There's a reason why the Sesame Street franchise and this album in particular have endured through the years. The unique mix of high-energy, comic relief, and sweetness hit all the right buttons for a kids' compilation. What other group of characters could get away with singing about the shapes of noses ("Big Round Noses")? Kid will be introduced to a variety of musical styles, including the polka and waltz, as well as each Muppet's unique personality.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about making silly songs all their own. You don't have to make a song that is serious or even sensible. Can you try to make your own silly songs? What can you tell about the Sesame Street characters from listening to their songs? Does Bert sing a different song from Ernie? Can you make up a song about something you like or something you think is funny?
