About half of the tracks on Bert and Ernie Sing-Along are popular originals from the series written by the likes of Joe Raposo. Delightfully, "Morningtown Ride" by Malvina Reynolds gets a cover version, a sure sign of a hipster lurking in the wings. It could be Sam Pottie, who has quite a few fingers in the pudding as composer or co-composer of many numbers while handling the total sum of musical arrangements as well. "I Refuse to Sing Along" may set a typically cynical Muppet point-of-view, but the album at the same time makes no effort to avoid the inclusion of singalong fodder: "I've Been Working on the Railroad," "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," "On Top of Old Smokey," and so forth. Still, Ernie's rendition of "On Top of Old Smokey" makes all others obsolete.
The best car album we have
My toddler wants to hear this album at least four times a week, and I hardly mind. The songs are at least half familiar, but the framing story is adorable - and the Henson/Oz/Spinney etc. original voices are charming beyond belief. Listen for Ernie's "Is there a second verse to that song?" and laugh while your kid wonders what's funny.
I listened to this ALBUM when I was a child. I had my Lone Ranger record player and would listen to this over and over again in my room. I love finding pieces of my childhood around now that I am 36.
I LOVE THIS!!!
I'm so excited I found this! When I was little I used to make my parents play this TAPE (yes, Tape), over and over again in the car. One day our car got "broken into" and this was the only thing they took...(is what my parents told me). Years later I'm now 30 and have had my first son. I can't believe I found this album. I still remember it like it was yesterday and the same part in "The Limerick Song", when the Count starts singing, still scares me. HaHa. I can't wait to share this with my child now...and make my parents listen to it all over again!
