Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by minor muppetz, Aug 6, 2006.
Whenever I hear the song "Let it Be", I think Sesame Street should cover it as "Letter B".
er, yeah... someone corrected me on that...
The SS Cast should've sang Frank Sinatra's New York New York.
They did sing that on "The Night of 100 Stars" along with Fozzie, Gonzo, Kermit and the TMS gang. Around the mid to-late 80's.
Were talking about SS not TMS.
Yeah I know, BUT the Sesame Street cast sang along with the TMS cast. Thats why I brought it up.
Oh. I see.
...Oh, and you know what? I just realized that they DID feature a cover of "All Together Now" on Sesame Street during its first season! Learn something new everyday...
Some more ideas:
* "This Diamond Ring" (The Anything Muppets)
* "Happy Together" (sung to a large letter U)
* (concept same as above, but it's this one song called "You Were On My Mind" or something like that. It was from the 60s, and I remember seeing it on some infomercial for the "60s Gold" CD collection")
Believe it or not there was an R&B artist named Eddie Floyd who in the late 60's did record a song called Big Bird but certainly had nothing to do with the SS character. But if he'd had amde an appearance on the show it would of been a very interesting skit.
Floyd is probably better know for a 1966 hit called Knock On Wood.
I think a song that "Sesame Street" should've covered was "Chicken Soup With Rice," with lyrics by Maurice Sendak and singing by Carole King! This was from the "Really Rosie" TV special. I can picture a female Anything Muppet lip-synching to Carole King's vocals as other Muppets perform the various representations of the month.
James Taylor could've sang "You've Got a Friend" in the street scene.
"MacArthur Park" could be sung by a group of AM's in 1970.
"Do You Know Where You're Going To?" could be sung by Pussycats member Josie in an animated "Sesame Street" segment in 1976.
Helen Reddy I Am Women.
A song that was considered thbe Women's Lib Movemment song when relased in 1972.
