This audio companion to the TV special (and now video) of the same name is a can't-miss kid pleaser that will hook parental ears as well. Tot-wise, it's a Sesame Street album; say no more. But for pop-loving moms and dads, it's studded with superstars from the recording world, performing with and without Kermit and the rest of the "Sesame Street" crew.

Overview

This audio companion to the TV special (and now video) of the same name is a can't-miss kid pleaser that will hook parental ears as well. Tot-wise, it's a Sesame Street album; say no more. But for pop-loving moms and dads, it's studded with superstars from the recording world, performing with and without Kermit and the rest of the "Sesame Street" crew. Überdiva Celine Dion chirps "Happy To Meet You" with Elmo, Big Bird, and Herry Monster. Songstress Shawn Colvin and Ernie duet on "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon." Rosie O'Donnell and Elmo get down for the rap number "Nearly Missed," while ska-punk act Mighty Mighty Bosstones mix it up with The Count on "Zig Zag Dance." Other stellar guests include R&B luminaries En Vogue and the Fugees, good-time king Jimmy Buffet, and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, who single handedly takes on Oscar the Grouch's theme song "I Love Trash." Of course, this being a "Sesame Street" record, there's an educational element, mostly of a socialization and self-esteem stripe (e.g. the Fugees' "Just Happy to Be Me.") Mostly, though, this musicathon is just plain fun, and who said there's anything wrong with that?

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald
This particular set follows on the heels of a similar project related to Schoolhouse Rock, but it turns out to be, actually, a lot better than might be expected. A variety of artists ranging from Gloria Estefan to Jimmy Buffett tackle various Sesame Street songs, with and without the assistance of the various members of the Muppet cast. The compilation is amusing, entertaining and a lot of fun, whether it's Estefan's exuberant take on "Mambo I, I, I," Steven Tyler's very loud cover of "I Love Trash" or Jimmy Buffett dueting with Kermit the Frog on "Caribbean Amphibian." A good one for the adults as well as the kids.

If you want to listen to childrens cd's in the car or at home, this is definatly it. You gotta love Rosie's duet with Elmo and the duet with Ernie!! I love it and so does my 2yr old son.

As proud members of the Sesame Street Generation, my wife and I bought this for our 1 year old daughter. She loves it, but I think we love it even more! What makes it so enjoyable is that it blends classic songs with a variety of current musical flavors (and artists), in typically hip Sesame Street style. Great fun that will surely find its way into the car for all trips, long and short!
