The celebrities who’ve appeared on Sesame Street count among their numbers some of the greatest music legends of the 20th century. Sometimes they sing a kid’s song, but other times you’ll hear a hit from the radio. And, when it’s a truly uplifting song then even kids can’t help but sing along- albeit with their own idea of how it should be done!
Paul Simon’s performance in 1978 is one of the best because there is one little girl who simply can’t contain herself. Simon’s hit “Me and Julio” is a winner with these kids and it couldn’t be sweeter. The wonderful little girl sitting next to him is singing her own lyrics and she seems to have natural musical talent that just can’t be contained! What a heartwarming testament to the power of music to unite people of all ages. Have a look at the video below. And, for our favorite TV theme songs click here.
