Feist acknowledges her popularity with the 4-year-old set

Feist was in Denver last night and I missed it, but this recent performance from Sesame Street is clearly a match made in heaven. Kids love the original “1234″ song, even if they tend to be a bit troubled by the way she skips 7 and 8 — this cheerfully makes up for it.

Ms. Leslie Feist joins a fairly formidable pantheon of past performers on one of my favorite kid’s shows since back in the day, when the youth were all so much more fashionable:

R.E.M.

Johnny Cash

Stevie Wonder

There are also some unfortunate missteps, and this one always always makes me feel sad for undefinable reasons, not having to do with Aaron’s regrettable earring.

And my goodness my head kind of just exploded from vivid nostalgia (the crayons!!).

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
