Reason number five million and seven why old-school Sesame Street rocked: Because it gave us gloriously jubilant musical gems like this.
Even better, it appears to be one live take. No autotuning, no lip-synching to a track, no multiple takes edited together; just sheer old-fashioned talent.
David (Northern Calloway) and Olivia (Alaina Reed Hall) were two of my favorite humans on the show, and Olivia’s bold, brassy voice still puts a smile on my face and makes me feel good about the world. Calloway and Hall are, sadly, no longer with us, but their work on Sesame Street remains a great gift to kids — and kids at heart — everywhere.
