The Simpsons Songwriting Appreciation Post. Link:
There was a time in Simpsons history where not only could you count on the show for tons of laughs (I guess season 21 was worthy), but you could also count on The Simpsons having some of the best sing-along monologues and music based-skits since The Carrol Burnett show (OLD SCHOOL). Talking with an old friend made it official… there’s nothing like those early seasons of The Simpsons with that Conan O’Brien written music and satire (boy I hope they get back to that soon).
Now this is where my nerdery comes in handy. My friend had no ideal that The Simpsons did manage to release the early songs to two different soundtracks… “Songs in the key of Simpson” and “Go Simpsonic with the Simpsons.” I mean… if it has any kind of music or soundtrack, you know I’m going to have it. LOL. Anyways, both of these albums have some real gems on there that need some sharing. Like:
Michael Jackson singing ‘Happy Birthday Lisa’
‘Talkin Softball’ (This got played at a Baseball game once; epic victory.)
Tito Puente Doing ‘Senor Burns’
Click the links, and enjoy the good times.
