The influence of television is acknowledged with music from the beloved children’s shows, Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. Bob McGrath performs “People in Your Neighborhood,” and “Rainbow Connection.” Included are instrumental versions of “The Muppet Show Theme” and “Movin’ Right Along.”
The worlds of cartoons and movies are featured with Vince Guaraldi’s “Linus and Lucy” theme and a “Medley of Famous Cartoon Themes” and “I Won’t Grow Up” from Peter Pan.
Patti Page recreates her hit song from 1954, “How Much is that Doggie in the Window?”, which sold over a million copies in its original version as a single. Mel Tormé joins the Pops for a charming rendition of “Young at Heart.”
The Children’s Chorus of the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts is featured in many selections on this recording, including “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,” arranged by Eric Knight. The great Carmen Dragon’s arrangement of Brahms’ “Lullaby” is included, as are Richard Hayman’s arrangements of “Sing, Sing A Song/I Believe in Music.”
