Media diet: Sesame Street remixes, covers and rare albums.

As many of you know, I'm a big Sesame Street fan. Since I recently extracted the audio track from the video (, 22 MB) of the DJ Food remix of the Pinball Count Song that appears on the ZENtv DVD Ninja Tune compilation so I could add it to my iTunes library, I thought I should say something about it. Then I forgot what I was going to say, except that it's hugely entertaining and Walt Kraemer should be honored for composing a song that has been stuck in my head for over 20 years.

While digging up the link to the video file, I found out that York University a cappella group Wibijazz'n did covers of both the Sesame Street theme and the Pinball Count Song on their 2002 album In The Pocket, so that's been added to my future purchase queue.

I've conceded that I no longer have the mix CD that had the Smart E's remix of the Sesame Street theme. If anyone can point in me in the right direction to acquire another copy, I'd appreciate it.

Yesterday, Laurel danced to most of the 1978 album Sesame Street Fever, which I actually owned on 8-track at one point but currently have in in MP3 format courtesy of SesameSeventies. (Sadly, the site appears to be down.) There's always something funny about Robin Gibb interacting with various Sesame Street characters.
