The Sesame Street Monsters! (1975)

When I spotted some songs from Sesame Street’s Monsters on YouTube, it sent all sorts of memories flooding back to me. I remember laying on the floor of my room with my ear almost pressed up against the weak speaker of my sisters portable record player listening to the The Sesame Street Monsters. Even as the record player started to die and slow down, I would still listen to it all warped and slowed down, which gave it a surreal quality (which is probably why it is stuck in my brain).

If you would like to relive the experience, turn your speaker down low, drink some warm milk and put your head on your desk and just hit play below.
