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 🙂
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.
Gotta add these ones from the Muppet Show: manamana
