In all likelihood, any song you remember from this show, [[EarWorm for better or worse]], can be linked to either Joe Raposo or Tony Geiss. Oh, the tantrums that have been stopped... Jeff Moss, Sam Pottle, and Christopher Cerf also deserve credit.

* During the show's first few years, Stevie Wonder performed one of the best versions of "Superstition" ever! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ul7X5js1vE Listen for yourself!]]
* How about the show's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmcdBnj4ZOg theme song]]?
* Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh85R-S-dh8 Official Video here]]) was a ''huge'' hit (#10 on the Billboard pop charts!) in 1970.
* Music/RayCharles' cover of "Bein' Green" (recorded for his 1975 album ''Renaissance'' and later featured on ''Series/TheCosbyShow'') is as awesome as it is gorgeously uplifting. He performed his version on the Street in 1989.
* The wonderful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oFPveNebPE closing credits music]] that used to accompany Friday episodes, complete with Toots Thielemans' mellow harmonica rendition of the theme and the unforgettable "Funky Chimes" music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acBixR_JRuM "Put Down the Duckie"!]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNBVTCJ9Dks On The Subway]]" - which also has one of the all time great GettingCrapPastTheRadar moments at 1:21 when a passenger says "You might lose your purse and you might lose something worse on the subway"!
* "Pinball Number Count". Fun Fact: Yes, that is The Pointer Sisters singing it. "1-2-3 '''4-5''' 6-7-8 '''9-10''' 11-12!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLgF1CA56yg Telephone Rock]] qualifies as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp9B7-Yd7XQ Rock & Roll Readers]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe3Hh8nvn4k It's Hip to be a Square]], a Huey Lewis parody.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1q5PUGGW5E "Green Grow the Rushes Go".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mAfxJb7c5Q "Nothing! Never! No! N!"]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FCUrNxnCPw Happy to Be Me]]. Sure, it dates itself, but that bass line is sick.
* [[http://www.sesamestreet.org/video_player/-/pgpv/videoplayer/0/ba5a9d8c-155f-11dd-a62f-919b98326687 Street Garden Cooperation]].
* "Keep Christmas with You", both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd5PEVKuAro the original]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiPI5c1KPx4 the remix]].
* Philip Glass' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch-R1aIM-C0 "Geometry of Circles"]] music. All four clips are pure minimalist goodness, and while they are all based around the same framework, they each play out quite differently to keep things interesting.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeNO56xNlZo I Don't Want to Live on the Moon]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV9rKeC4FEc Don't Walk]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNMwRH5UGYY Monster In the Mirror.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7yAe2MBIpE The Batty Bat.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1C5r3r7zms One Way]] also deserves a mention.
* Although a lot of people get on Cookie Monster's case for eating fruits and vegetables in addition to cookies, they don't seem to remember that Cookie has promoted healthy eating as far back as 1987. Back then, however, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VplgVXMecqY he rapped about it. Awesomely.]]
* In 2015 the entire ''Music/SesameStreetPlatinumAllTimeFavorites'' album was inducted in the UsefulNotes/NationalRecordingRegistry for being "historically, culturally and aesthetically important." You don't get more awesome than that!
