Top Sesame Street Song Parodies
No. 7"I Soaks Up the Sun" sung by Sheryl Crow, a parody of "Soak Up the Sun"
Beach parties are fun, but the party only starts when the letter "I" gets there! When you're a busy letter like the letter "I", sometimes all you want to do is soak up the sun on the beach.
No. 6"My Triangle" sung by James Blunt, a parody of "You're Beautiful"
What makes James Blunt sad? Losing his triangle of course.
James explains to Telly the reasons why he loves his triangle so much. Telly understands his pain singing, "it must be those angles that put a smile on your face, not to mention the hypotenuse". Deep.
No. 5"Slimey to the Moon" sung by Tony Bennett, a parody of "Fly me to the Moon"
When our favourite little worm, Slimy goes on a space mission to the moon, Tony Bennett sings about his adventures in a parody of, "Fly Me to the Moon"
No. 4"Pride" sung by The Goo Goo Dolls, a parody of "Slide"
With a name like Goo Goo Dolls, you'd think they were a band made up by the Sesame Street writers, but no, the Grammy nominated band created that name themselves. They appeared on the show performing a parody of their hit "Slide".
John Rzeznik and the rest of the guys teach Elmo that the great feeling he gets when he ties his shoes and gets dressed by himself, is pride.
No. 3"1234", sung by Leslie Feist, a parody of "1234"
Sesame Street and counting go hand in hand, so having Feist on the show singing a parody of her hit "1234" was fitting.
From counting four monsters, four penguins, and four chickens we learn the basics of counting to four with this Canadian songstress.
