    Here are mine!

    1. J Friends-if anything because the voices Jerry and Jim used for the Anything Muppets in this song would later be used for Floyd & Dr. Teeth
    2. Ha Ha--a rare Harvey Kneeslapper appearance!
    3. I Love Trash--OSCAR RULES!
    4. Put Down The Duckie--I always liked this one
    5. Count It Higher--Same here. Chris Cerf should've done more work with the Muppets outside of Sesame Street
    6. Count Up To Nine--How much do I think the Count rules? Let me COUNT the ways, von, two, three, four, ah ha ha ha ha..
    7. With Every Beat Of My Heart--Little Jerry has to be one of Mr. Nelson's more underrated characters
    8. I Don't Want To Live On The Moon--just a quiet, introspective song by the normally rambunctious Ernie
    9. The First Day Of School--Another great Count perfomance.
    10. Fuzzy And Blue (And Orange)--another song I've always loved.

    Honorable Mention: Little Miss Count Along

  7. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Well, these may not be from Sesame Street, but for me...

    These are the most beautiful or transcedant songs from the Muppets I've heard.
    1 Bein' Green, with the parenthetical title of (It's Not Easy) Bein' Green.
    2 Sing, at least the original version or a version sung as closely to that as possible as in the Lena Horne episode of TMS.
    3 The Rainbow Connection from The Muppet Movie.
    4 When the River Meets the Sea from Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    4. C Is For Cookie
    5. Teeny Little Super Guy Theme
    6. Big Bird ABC Song
    7. Oinker Sisters - Ive got a new way to walk

    10. Grouch Anthem (From follow that bird)
  9. Splurge

    Splurge Well-Known Member

    My top favorite is the series of Jim Henson's number films with the falling chef. Mostly because of the music.

    Also, "It's a Long Hard Climb", where Raposo harmonizes with itself.

    "Mad" by Little Jerry and the Monotones

    I guess I tend to have a fondness for relatively underrated songs.
  10. ssetta

    Here's a list of my 10 Favorite Songs that were NEVER released on any albums:

    City/Country Song
    Elevator Song (1-10/10-1)
    "G" Song
    Baby's Life
    D Du-ah Du-ah
    Big Kids Cry Too
    Long Time, No See
