Songs from the Street: 35 Years of Music is a 3 CD box set produced in 2003 celebrating the 35th anniversary of Sesame Street, including 63 tracks, 25 of which hadn't previously been available in album form before. This included many celebrity songs.

Disc 1 is mostly songs from the show's early years. Disc 2 is mostly songs from the late 1970s to the early 1990s. Disc 3 is mostly songs from the late 1990s and up.

Included was a booklet with liner notes by Christopher Cerf, a timeline, and lyrics to all of the songs.

The box itself was released in two configurations: a square, and a rectangle. The booklet and CD sleeves were the same in both.
