Format:DVD
This terrific DVD is the follow-up to "Elmo's Music Magic" which was released last year. In fact, this 2012 release is a lower priced version of the SSSWTS DVD released in 2011 and comes with a bonus CD (more on that in a minute).

While "Elmo's Music Magic" -see my review of it elsewhere on Amazon - had a few celebrities performing, this DVD's 17 songs are all by well known pop (and in one case, classical) artists and it's a joy to watch, even if you don't have children. Will,i.Am starts things off with the song "What I Am" and anyone watching it - no matter their age - will find themselves getting into the groove. Some of the songs are originals and some are adaptations of big hits by the "stars". When Norah Jones sings to Elmo the song "Y", it's virtually the same as her hit "Don't Know Why" but it teaches children the alphabet. The Black Eyed Peas' Sheryl Crow James Blunt and R.E.M are here too. More Alphabet songs come from The Dixie Chicks ("B"), and Ricky Gervais ("N"), the latter being a lullaby (well, sort of). Personally I find Gervais a bit annoying and the same goes with Adam Sandler (who talks his way through a song about Elmo, but those are the only weak numbers (at least for me). Others on the DVD are `N Synch, Alicia Keys, Goo Goo Dolls, LL Cool J, Destiny's Child, Feist, Hootie and the Blowfish, Jason Mraz and the amazing closer: Andrea Bocelli actually dueting with the red fuzzy Elmo for "Time to Say Goodbye (Goodnight").

The DVD has a Karaoke option for 8 of the songs (as a bonus) though you can also chose the "English subtitles" option and sing along with all the songs. Other bonus features are aimed at parents with "Musical Activity Tips" and a downloadable activity book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD- entertaining and fun July 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD after having watched some of the Sesame Street music videos on YouTube together with my 10 month old baby. Unlike the Baby Einstein videos which he didn't like at all, I noticed that he responded very well to the music videos. I searched Amazon for a Sesame Street DVD that had his favorites and found this DVD. It was a no-brainer purchase, and a great one that I would recommend to other parents. This is one DVD that I can actually watch and sing along to very happily whereas other baby DVDs just bore me to death. The DVD is a collection of videos with songs sung by various international stars and different Sesame Street characters. My baby is very active and he normally can't sit still for a second, but once this is on he is totally engaged by these songs. He loves them. Despite my initial plan not to let my baby anywhere near a TV until he gets older, I've relaxed about letting him watch this. It's highly entertaining for him, and once he gets older, it will have some educational value too.

The DVD Song list:
What I am - Will.i.Am (of Black Eyed Peas fame)
Pride- Goo goo dolls
'I' is gonna soak up the sun - Sheryl Crow (a rework of her hit I'm gonna soak up the sun)
My Triangle - James Blunt
Celebrity Lullabies Letter 'N'- Ricky Gervais
1 2 3 4 - Feist
New Way to Walk - Destiny's Child (including Beyonce)
Believe in Yourself - *NSync
Furry Happy Monsters - REM
Song About Elmo - Adam Sandler
Dancin' - Alicia Keys (a rework of her hit Fallin')
No Letter Better - Dixie Chicks
The Addition Expedition - LL Cool J
Hold my Hand - Hootie and the Blowfish
Don't know why 'Y' didn't come - Norah Jones
Outside - Jason Mraz (a rework of his smash hit I'm Yours)
Time to Say Goodnight - Andrea Boccelli

Our baby loves music, and one song he really reacts to is the Sesame Street version of Feist's song "1234". We saw that the song was available on DVD, and after looking into what was included, we decided to take a chance on the other songs. We weren't disappointed; for the price, the DVD has a decent amount of content. I really admire some of these artists for appearing on Sesame Street, often singing tongue-in-cheek versions of their biggest hits. Some of the clips are a little old; a couple that jumped out were Destiny's Child and N'Sync. As a parent, I appreciated that the songs gave us a little nod and a wink, since we'll probably be listening to the songs over and over again. Be warned, some of these songs may already grate on you from being overplayed the first time they came around. James Blunt's "You're Beautiful", Jason Mraz's "I'm yours", Alicia Keys "Fallin'" and Norah Jones "Don't Know Why" are represented on this DVD. Considering the puns and wordplay, I don't mind just yet. I will admit, Ricky Gervais and Adam Sandler stand out in this collection as not being quite on par with some of the artists, but I don't mind them being on the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the whole family! June 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have been enjoying this DVD every couple of days since it came. I like that it doesn't have any filler stuff between the songs. It's fun to hear the sesame street versions of popular songs, and even our 2 year old son seems to like these songs better than the traditional sesame street songs. He asks to watch it "Songs! Songs!" I will say before we had this we were getting the same thing from a YouTube playlist we created on Apple TV, but this is portable and has songs we hadn't heard. Favorite tracks: What I Am- Will I am, My Triangle- James Blunt, I got a New Way to Walk- Destiny's Child.
