U are completely off-topic

So, this weekend we were driving back from Cincinnati and I heard a cover of the song "You Really Gotta Hold On Me". And I cannot hear that song without thinking of the following Sesame Street sketch:





I have no idea why this sketch has stuck with me through the years, but I just thought I'd share it with you today. Of course, as a kid I had no idea that it's actually Smokey Robinson in the video.

I'm the same way Abby! I hear that song and I always think of Sesame Street. I don't think I knew that song before I saw it on Sesame Street. I love it.

Oh my gosh, this is basically the only skit I remember from watching Sesame Street when I was younger! I love this song too. Sometimes I forget how witty Sesame Street was/is.

HAHA! I remember that!!!

Sesame Street rocks!

My daughter came home singing "Conjunction Junction" the other day and I nearly fell on the floor laughing. Not Sesame Street...but still classic!
