Six Awesome Performances From ‘Sesame Street’

Forty-eight years ago today (November 10), Sesame Street debuted.  While obviously aimed at young children, the show has featured countless musical guests that the adults could enjoy, too.  Here are some of our favorites!

 

Billy Joel and Marlee Matlin performing “Just The Way You Are”

This Billy Joel classic was reworked by the “Piano Man” as an ode to everyone’s favorite trashcan dweller, Oscar The Grouch.  It’s hard not to fall in love with this song (and Oscar) even more.
