These songs are funny in a quirky sort of way that might seem old fashioned to people today. The recordings seem to be from at least as far back as the 70's, or maybe even a decade earlier, which just by the instrumentation and the style of singing used makes the songs seem pretty dated. It's not as bad as the syrupy Disney songs of old, but the overuse of a cheesy sounding organ on almost all these songs gets old after a while.
The difference between these songs & Dr. Suess' books are that the simple rhythm of his poetry gets kind of lost in the musical settings of Eugene Poddany, which try to be as funny as Dr. Seuss's rhymes, but invariably aren't, with some exceptions. "Hurry, Hurry, Hurry" is one song where Mr. Poddany matches the music to the lyric very well, using a slowing tempo to reflect the silliness of lyrics like "we better hurry slow." And "My Uncle Terwilliger Waltzes With Bears" is the best song here, a joyful romp that really starts to evoke a picture in the listener's mind of that weird uncle that families try to ignore.
The two tracks that are not songs but are a reading of a Dr. Seuss story (w/ instrumental music added) are OK, they'd be appropriate for a young person to follow along to with the book or just listen to.
I teach music at an elementary school, and I used three songs from this CD and the Cat In the Hat songbook book to help put together a show of Dr. Seuss songs with our 1st graders. A note to any elementary music teachers who might read this: most of the songs on this CD are too difficult for young singers (like my 1st graders), the range of the songs is too wide, and the songs often contain tricky key changes. Older grades such as 3rd, 4th or 5th could handle the songs better. Plus, the singers are adults, both men & women, which isn't as good of a model for children to sing along with as a recording using a good children's group. But, if you absolutely have to put together a show about Dr. Seuss, it can be a helpful resource.
