The music of Sesame Street has always amazed me. I would play my Sesame Street records all day, and play with my dolls and puppets of the characters, putting on my own Muppet shows for an audience of none, and I loved it.
Ernie singing “I Don’t Want To Live On the Moon” is a piece of art in itself, and of course “Bein’ Green”, probably the first song about equality and self respect I ever heard, but at three years old, to me, it was just Kermit saying it’s OK to be yourself…
And he’s right. It is.
