By M. Allen Greenbaum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 14, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Until I heard this CD, I never fully appreciated how much music was in "The Simpsons." Sure, I knew the theme songs, and was aware of guest appearances by The Who, The Red Hot Chile Peppers, and many other bands, and I know that Danny Elfmann and ALf Clausen are exceptional composers who excel in many other venues. Over the years, however, the show has produced a number of memorable songs, many of them satirizing some of the most popular (and often unctious) chestnuts of recent American music.

Krusty's "Send in the Clowns" is a prime example of the importance and the sheer quality of the songs in the show. Like the best musicals, they advance the plot, jive with with the show's themes and characters, and are musically memorable and lyrically hilarious. Some of the songs are played semi-straight (Lurleen's country songs) while others extend the subversive, on-target humor of one of TV's most brilliant shows. (As the co-owner of the creature who actually won the "animal who most resembles a Simpson contest," receiving a Matt Groening autographed poster as a prize, I am one of millions of experts on the show and a longtime fan.)

I agree with the reviewer who said there were a just a few too many reworkings of the Simpson theme songs on the CD (although many of these are of unquestionable worth), the CD, replete with both music and samplings of dialogue is a tribute to the show, a true bargain box set, and a must for any Simpsons or musical comedy fan. Springfield, you RAWK!

What's really amazing about this CD is the complete variety in music. Compare "Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart" to "Bagged Me a Homer" or "Happy Birthday, Lisa" to "Baby On Board." All of them catchy, yet so different! I especially like "Flaming Moe's" and "The Itchy Scratchy Closing Theme," which is the opening theme sung in sad past tense. Personal favorite is "The Amendment Song."
In addition to some great instrumental stuff, there are three spoken skits taken from the show. The first one "Honey Roasted Peanuts" is the funniest and it leads into the next track. Another one, "In Search of an Out of Body Vibe," is funny too and although it doesn't lead into the next track, it is still from the same episode. However, the other skit, "TV [...]" is a complete mystery to me as it has nothing to do with any songs and ends with Bart saying "TV [...]." I don't understand why they cut out what Homer replies in the actual episode, "Since I know you're upset, I'll pretend I didn't hear that." Okay, it's not that funny but it still would have been better to end the skit with a punchline. Also, the track "Boy Scouts-N-The Hood" has a song in it ("Springfield Springfield") but has so much dialouge both before and after the song is sung that it feels more like a skit too.
Good CD.

Whoa, momma! For a Simpsons fan, it doesn't get any better than this. A bunch of great, hilarious music from the funniest TV show ever. I especially love the songs from the "Streetcar Named Desire" and "Planet of the Apes" musicals. Alf Clausen should be commended for the great job he did in putting this CD together. The sound is really good, considering these songs were not intended for commercial release when they were recorded. It's even in stereo. Any Simpsons fan who doesn't already own this CD should click on "Buy now" right this very minute.

While "The Simpsons Sing The Blues" seemed to be a quicky cash-in job to make somemore money off of Simpsons-maina, "Songs in the Key of Springfield" delivers the goods. The snappy writing and lovable characters can be enjoyed over and over again in you CD player. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the show.

Being an original fan of The Simpson's when the series first aired on Fox back in '89, I just get a kick out of listening to these lines and music from past episodes. I would never say that these types of items are must haves, but they are fun to listen to. I actually purchased this volume just to get the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida spoof...that was a classic episode and I just had to have it. I've listened to the entire CD three tymes thus far and there are just too many real good memories to even start mentioning them individually. I think if you are a big fan of the Simpson's or you have a friend who's a big fan, the purchase would be worth while.

On the flip side, reality is that it will probably never be a regular on the play list or knock AC/DC out of the CD Changer.

Free Hugs!!

Love the CD. All my favorite songs from the show. The only major disappointment for me is that they didn't play the Happy Birthday Lisa song from the closing credits with all the instruments playing, only the one from the show, which was very short. I loved that tune and thought the whole thing would be on the CD. Hope they put out a CD at some point that has the entire song on it!!!

I bought this somewhat on a whim. About 20 years ago my family and I were visiting relatives that owned this CD and I loved listening to it! I was about 7 or 8 at the time but those songs stuck in my head. I couldn't find this album on iTunes, Spotify, or any digital download platform. Buying the CD was the only option to hear it again, but I'm glad I did! Love feeling nostalgic listening to these hilarious tunes!
