Sesame Street Rocks

I’ve been on a Sesame Street kick of late, with Ava watching a couple of DVDs we’ve bought for her. One is the 25th Birthday Special, which takes a number of classic songs and packages them in this short 50 minute video.

Unfortunately, some of the songs are not complete, like “Du De Rubber Duck,” a beautiful reggae piece. Here is complete song on Youtube:

Another amazing song is “Put Down the Duckie,” which again in the 25th Birthday Special only shows a minute clip. The original is over five minutes in length and just rockin’!

Then of course Cookie Monster’s classic “C is for Cookie” is in full because it is short:

This searching on Youtube got me looking for other great songs, such as this one called “What’s the name of that Song?”

Then there’s the “Subway!” I can relate 🙂

“Telephone Rock”

and finally, one of the things that made Sesame Street so great, is that it invited talented musicians like Yo Yo Ma to perform.

So take a look at them. I’m on a Sesame Street kick right now. And I’m liking it. Today’s television is so downright nasty and bad. It’s nice to feel the childlike beauty of innocence again.

UPDATE:

Gotta add these ones from the Muppet Show: manamana

    This was SO fun to read. C is for Cookie is my VERY favorite! I still have the record of it…. That’s right a RECORD from when I was a little girl.

    Ava is adorable. It’s crazy to think I read your blog before she was even born!
