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.

* "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.
* 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!
