Product Description

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! Originally released in 1997, Songs In The Key Of Springfield is a collection of original songs, themes and underscore music from the television show The Simpsons. Apart from the Simpsons Main Title Theme (by Danny Elfman), you can also find 'The Itchy And Scratchy Theme', 'Senor Burns' (by Tito Puente), 'Dancin' Homer' (by Tony Bennett) 'It Was A Very Good Beer' (by Homer Simpson) and a cover of Carol King's 'Jazzman' performed by Lisa Simpson! Includes liner notes by Matt Groening and Alf Clausen. 39 total tracks. Rhino/Wea.


Who said musical comedy was dead? Was it you? Fools! There are more shining moments in each of these 39 zippy little numbers than in the complete score of any bloated Broadway dud today. Peppered with original dialogue, and seven renditions of "The Simpsons Main Title Theme" (including Australian, Big Band, and Afro-Cuban), this disc includes beloved originals like "Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?". Even better are the scathing parodies: "Oh, Streetcar!" (Tennessee Williams a la community musical theater); "Dr. Zaius" (Falco-meets-Planet of the Apes); and "See My Vest" (Monty Burns's jaunty dissection of Disney's "Be Our Guest"). With celebrity cameos from Tony Bennett, Robert Goulet, and Beverly D'Angelo, Songs is a sparkling tonic to sustain you through the seven dreary days between Sunday evenings. --Kurt B. Reighley

4.0 out of 5 stars So you like music and you like Simpsons... Aug. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's Good Squishy Oct. 15 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is what the Veggie Tales (and any other humor-driven cartoon) esteem to be. Hilarious, with intelligent lyrics and high quality music.
Don't get me wrong, Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato are top-notch, but the Simpsons are a notch higher. With "See My Vest," "It Was a Very Good Beer," and "Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?" you'll laugh with that silly, gut-busting laugh you enjoyed as a little kid.
Cameos by Tony Bennet are surprising. He's a bit classier than Homer, but they pull it off.
My favorite Homer line, "But I wanted a peanut." My favorite Bart line, "Oohm, that's good squishy." Hear both in context.
Themes/credits galore are here, with homages to every known pop TV show in the last 15 years. Their musicians did an amazing job melding "Hill Street Blues" with the closing Simpsons credits. It sounds as if it were meant to be.
If you are considering buying this as a novelty, go for it. After a few infectious listen-tos, you'll have given a novelty that will be funny even after the gag.
I fully recommend "Songs In The Key Of Springfield." While you are at it, check out "Silly Songs With Larry."

5.0 out of 5 stars The sounds of Springfield May 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
Music has always been an integral part of "The Simpsons," the brilliant animated comedy series created by Matt Groening. Much of the show's musical appeal is due to the outstanding work of its primary songwriter/composer/adapter/arranger, Alf Clausen. This disc collects a smorgasbord of songs and instrumental pieces from the series' first several seasons; altogether, there are a bountiful 39 tracks.
I could not possibly mention every one of this disc's marvelous highlights in the space of a short review. But here are a few of my favorites--
"We Do" (The Stonecutters' Song): A maniacal anthem for a wacky secret society. "Oh, Streetcar!": Snippets from a full-blown musical version of "A Streetcar Named Desire." The "Itchy and Scratchy" Main Title Theme: The demented theme song of the ultraviolent cartoon show-within-a-show. "The Amendment Song": A brilliant "Schoolhouse Rock" parody which savagely satirizes the anti-flag burning movement. The medley from "A Fish Called Selma": This musical montage includes the unforgettable musical version of "Planet of the Apes," complete with Phil Hartman's superb vocal performance as Troy McClure.
There are also some excellent instrumental pieces, most notably the many variations on the familiar end credits music: an Afro-Cuban version, an Australian version, a "Hill Street Blues" homage version, and more. Snippets of dialogue are included in many of the tracks.
And the album is not all satire and hilarity. There are some genuinely touching moments, such as Lisa's tribute and farewell to her musical mentor, jazz musician "Bleeding Gums" Murphy (the "'Round Springfield" medley).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not quite "Simpsons-good" Jan. 5 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong. It's a great CD, particularly if you're a Simpsons fan (like me). However, let me explain a few things. A lot of Simpsons jokes revolve around a visual gag, rather than audio, thus, some of the parts which look funny on the show just don't sound as funny (of course, if you're like me and have practically memorized the look of every episode, then it's not a problem... *grins*) This album contains a number of great Simpsons songs, notably "We Do" (the Stonecutters' Song), "See My Vest", and the Amendment Song, (one of my personal favorites--an hilarious song and a biting retort to Schoolhouse Rock; how can you beat it?) among others. It contains, occasionally, vocals from the show, which I suppose are to put the song in context (or, in the case of "In Search of an Out of Body Vibe", they are the joke), but somehow they don't work quite as well here... In the end, this is an album well worth owning if you're a Simpsons fan, but otherwise, you may not understand the jokes. It is fun, though.
