Happy Birthday Sesame Street

Long before musicians looked to Apple commercials to push their tracks, Sesame Street attracted some of the biggest names in music. And this week, the show we all grew up with celebrated it's 40th birthday.

To celebrate, Rolling Stone collected 40 of the best musical performances that the show has seen... which include a bunch of stars who visited the show in the 70s – Johnny Cash, Stevie Wonder singing ‘Superstition’, Paul Simon doing ‘Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard’, and Michael Jackson in a Christmas Special.

Personally, I think the older performances are the best - but more recent artists that made the list included REM singing ‘Furry Happy Monsters’ in 2000, and Feist’s performance of 1,2,3,4 last year. Check out the Rolling Stone list here, or watch some of the performances below.
