Anyone else liked Sesame Street? I loved Sesame Street, when I was little.

There were a lot of good songs, but there were quite a few songs that I really underappreciated, for I didn't know what they were references to, until I got older.

 

Examples include "Letter B," a beautiful reference to one of the most famous Beatles song:

 

"Honk Around the Clock," a nice reference to Bill Haley's song, "Rock Around the Clock"

 

"ZZ Blues" a possible reference to ZZ Top's song, "Sharp Dressed Man"

 

 

"We're All Monsters," a reference to racial diversity:

 

"Frazzle," a possible reference to people with mental disabilities, and social acceptance thereof.

 

 

...And so on and so forth!

 

My favorite character is Cookie Monster, and these are my favorite songs, sung by him:

 

 

 

What about you? What are your favorite songs and characters?

@Sparklefan1234 Excellent choices! Ernie is good singer. One of my favorites of his is "Do De Rubber Duck."

 

The moon song is so calming and peaceful.

Reminds me of this:

^Oh wait...technically, they're all live-action, because they're puppets! 

You know what I mean, though...

I know. I was referring to the fact that all Sesame Street videos posted so far are live-action, even if they involve fictional characters, because they are puppets, not animated. 

Still, "We All Sing with the Same Voice" is my favorite Sesame Street song that doesn't include any fictional characters.
