The Simpsons Sing the Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Brian Mansfield
This musical spin-off of the animated television series retained the same skewed-life humor that made the show a hit and tried to instigate a dance craze "Do the Bartman". Not really a comedy album, though it certainly contains funny moments "Look at All Those Idiots," "Deep Deep Trouble". Despite its smart-ass front, it sneaks in some subversive musical education, too: no album that includes Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child," Randy Newman's "I Love to See You Smile" and a parody of King Curtis's "Memphis Soul Stew" redone as "Springfield Soul Stew" can be all bad.

    Excellent Musical Adventure For Your Ears

    Even adults can appreciate the music of this cartoon comedy sit-com. If I ever get married, I want to hear 'I Love to See You Smile' as I walk down the aisle. A great sing-a-long with your kids of any age plus the advantage of hearing some really great musicians and vocalists. Check out the performance and technical credits.
