There have been a few mentions on the forum lately of Pete Seeger, who appeared numerous times on Sesame Street and released an album with them. I think he deserves his own thread, not least because he is turning 90 on 3 May and celebrating with a concert at Madison Square Garden. I was listening to some of his albums today, and I watched the video of him leading "This Land Is Your Land" at the inauguration, and there was talk about how gutsy & symbolic & awesomely inspiring it was that he sang the lesser-known trespassing and relief office verses. He sang those verses with Big Bird, Maria and Susan on the Pete Seeger and Brother Kirk Visit Sesame Street album. That was equally gutsy, symbolic and awesomely inspiring. That he sang those verses--and that he encouraged everyone to write their own verses--on the Sesame Street album is the very essence of what both Pete and Sesame Street model: treating all people--including kids--as intelligent and important, and daring to bring people together by celebrating both their differences and their commonalities. I uploaded the song to sendspace, if anyone wants to download it, because like this land, Pete and Woody would agree that this song was made for you and me.
