Saturday Morning: Cartoons Greatest Hits

If you were a child of the seventies and eighties, this
album is sure to make your kids’ playlist. Saturday_morningReleased on MCA Records in 1995, Saturday
Morning Cartoons: Greatest Hits
is a gem of an album. It’s filled with
alternative rockers from the nineties that will make all of us 30-somethings
nostalgic about our angst-filled college years. Liz Phair, Juliana
Hatfield, The Violent Femmes, and Sublime, among others, cover a classic cartoon
theme song from yesteryear.

Some of my favorite tracks are Scooby-Doo Where Are You? by Matthew Sweet, The Fat Albert Theme by Dig, and, hands down, my
favorite track on the album, Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sunshine In
sung to alt-rock perfection by Frente! Every time I hear that track I see
Pebbles and Bam-Bam up on the Bedrock stage singing their little hearts out.
That track alone is worth the price of the album.
