Let’s celebrate SESAME STREET – and some other STREET songs too!

What shall we add to our STREET SONGS list?

The stars were out in Washington Sunday for the 2019 Kennedy Center Honors. This year's ceremony recognized "Sesame Street," Linda Ronstadt, Sally Field, Earth, Wind and Fire and Michael Tilson Thomas. On the red carpet, Muppets Ernie and Bert chatted with reporters as their handlers, Peter Linz and Eric Jacobson, respectively, listened in.

Tonight on THE TOP 3, we’re going to celebrate the 51st anniversary of the debut of Sesame Street with some of the OTHER streets that have had songs written about them.  While the lyrics might not be as iconic as “can you tell me how to get… how to get to Sesame Street,” these songs and artists certainly hold their own.  Like…

  • Baker STREET / Gerry Rafferty
  • Where the STREETS Have No Name / U2
  • No Diggity / BlackSTREET
  • Nightmare on My STREET / DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince
  • Dancing In The STREET / Martha Reeves, then Van Halen
  • Everybody (BackSTREET’s Back) / BackSTREET Boys (and every one of their other songs too!)

What street songs are we forgetting?  Drop your suggestion below, and we’ll feature them on THE TOP 3 countdown later this evening!
