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!
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.
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.
