Sesame Street ZZ Blues

"ZZ Blues" is a song from Sesame Street, sung by a look-alike Muppet band of ZZ Top, here called "Over the Top," with the music video featuring chroma-keyed flying Z's and objects/animals beginning with "Z" against spot lights in the background. The song tells about the letter "Z," and how there are not enough words starting with the letter. By the end of the song, the band (including the lead singer, who "cops some Z's himself") fall asleep from singing about the letter Z, and finish the song as they snooze away.

Notes

  • On the "Count It Higher: Great Music Videos from Sesame Street" VHS, the video has MTV-style captions that refer to "US Snooze Records". The original VHS release included printed lyrics.
