Don’t ask me how I managed to come up with this, there’s no way I could explain it. Anyway, you watched Sesame Street when you were a kid right? Everyone did, it’s a wonderful educational and entertaining show. Elmo is practically a pop culture icon, he’s even got his own movie now.
Well, part of every Sesame Street is singing a song about counting. I don’t mean the Count counting to three or four, but that song that goes to twelve over and over again. I think it was inside a pinball machine and it followed the ball as it bounced around lighting up the numbers.
Well this popped into my head the other day and I thought about how that was made when the show originally launched and has never been updated. Probably with good reason now, as an up to date version would be a rap that’d go something like this…
One to the two to the three to the four
Five to the six to seven and eight more
Nine to the ten but we’re not done yet
Eleven and twelve now there’s a full set
Numbers man, numbers.
What do you think? Would it catch on? Maybe go for an rock version instead?
