PostSubject: Sesame Street Turns Forty!   Thu Nov 05, 2009 9:45 pm

Sesame Street turns 40 this week, and to celebrate, Google is using some of the famous muppets on their site. Below are a couple of them.....TOO CUTE! I saw a guy wearing a shirt the other day that had the Sesame Street characters on it, and it said, "I Was Raised on the Street!" I thought that was so cute!!!

How cute is that! Wow, I didn't realize it's been around for forty years. I guess that means that Big Bird is no spring chicken anymore. batEyes

OMG! My sister and I used to sing that song to each other all the time. I was the guy. (Okay Rob, another one on a silver platter for you.) My weekdays:

Sesame Street
Electric Company
Mister Rogers
Zoom

Not sure if the order is right, but that was my line up.

That is pretty, Rob. I hadn't heard that in a long time.


And here's Google's tribute of the day to Sesame Street:

*Sigh* Rainbow Connection!


Ah, my Kermy. Love I adore that frog...always have, always will. loveheart


Well, don't laugh, but that song brings tears to my eyes. The Muppet Movie was the first movie I ever saw...I was 10 years old. And that song really affected me in the theater and I sang it ALL the time....we even have me 'tape recorded' (LOL, remember those?!) singing it with Kermit! Um, it's pretty darn bad, especially at the part where Kermit goes really high at the one part before the key change, "We know that it's probably maaaaaaagiiiiic". Painful, I tell ya! laugh3 Eventually my voice improved though, and I lowered the key and sang this as a lullaby to my babies. Smile Huh? cryB

But is there anything cuter than my man Kermy playing guitar?!?! HeeHee

Thanks for posting that Rob...brought back some fond (albeit painful greenS ) memories. Wink

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbow's are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see

Someday we'll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Are these the sweet sounds that called
The young sailors
I think they're one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
There's something that I'm supposed to be

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

La Lala La Lala La La La Lala La La La

Who'd have thought that such a beautiful song could come from a little green frog?

Thanks for posting the lyrics, Rhonda.

As someone on YouTube pointed out, Kermit's a lefty just like Hendrix.
