Overview

Boomer parents with a Springsteen jones will get as much of a hoot out of this (if not more) as their kids. From the inspired "Born to Run" -- parodied cover art (a guitar-slinging Muppet Ernie leaning on a sax-blowing, Clarence Clemons-esque Cookie Monster) -- to the surpassingly clever takes on famous pop tunes, BORN TO ADD takes the education-is-fun thing to the nth degree. As is customary with Sesame Street, songs focus not only on numbers, letters, opposites, and so forth, but on social learning and well-being. There's the Rolling Stonesean "(I Can't Get No) Cooperation," for instance, and "The Ten Commandments of Health," attributed to Dr. Thad and the Medications. Animal sounds get the spotlight in "Barn in the U.S.A." (another goof on Bruce), and Madonna is neatly deflated in "Cereal Girl." You simply can't go wrong with the Sesame Street music collection, and BORN TO ADD is one of its finest, funniest albums.
