Review:
What does the "Sesame Street" theme song sound like in the Netherlands? How about Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" song in Chinese? Putumayo gives listeners a tour of the iconic public TV show's music as interpreted and heard in countries around the world. (It's "Galli Galli Sim Sim" in India, "Vila S├ęsame" in Brazil, "Killimani Sesame" in Tanzania.) Elmo sings his "Elmo Song," U.S.A. style, and the album includes the show's original "Sing" anthem, too. Sample the show's visual differences, including a rainbow of varied signature Muppet characters, in the accompanying DVD of "Sesame Street" music videos excerpted from shows in India, Mexico, Israel, South Africa and Russia.
