New Song Sources

Alex found this site, which seems to have quite accurate listings for Sesame songs, with writers, composers, dates, publishers and sometimes the season/episode. Should we count it as a legit source for song info (I admit, I've already used it). - Oscarfan 15:41, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that looks great! It looks like that's drawn from copyright documents, so unless we see something obviously screwy there, we should definitely use it. -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 16:14, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
Should we also trust episode numbers given for some songs? "Seven Goldfish" is listed as appearing in episode 2734: "Elmo in Numberland", which I had suspected (episode 3912 is an exact remake of the episode, even featuring a remake of the song), so that seems to confirm it for me. Other songs have dates and episodes that match the same year, like "Little Plant" appearing in episode 2174 and is given a 1986 date, the year that episode would've aired. - Oscarfan 17:51, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
Unless we find reason not to trust any of the dates or episode numbers, we should use em for sure! —Scott (talk) 20:20, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

International heading

It's apparent that on the song pages, we don't list international releases under the "Audio" and "Video" sections. So, who's in favor of adding another heading especially for international releases? - Oscarfan 17:12, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

I'll have to look for it tomorrow, but I know we talked about this before. Maybe Danny or Andrew can explain it better, but my understanding was that we're only tracking US releases of Sesame songs on the song pages, and not dubbed versions in other countries. But we do list occasions where the cast of a non-US show performed the song. Were you talking about dubbed material, or performances by a non-US cast? -- Ken (talk) 06:50, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
No, I was talking about having a head for international releases of a song. Like this: - Oscarfan 18:03, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Audio
  • American Album
Video
  • American video
International
  • Foreign release
That's what Ken was talking about; we had decided not to track the international releases of the songs. At the time the decision was made, it was mostly that they appeared, dubbed, on Sesamstraat albums, and the information was not very complete, which is why Ken was asking if that's what you meant. -- Wendy (talk) 20:39, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, alright. - Oscarfan 01:48, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Simon Soundman Song

How about someone adding the song "All those remind me of you"Dshibshm 04:43, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Anyone?Dshibshm 23:08, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I don't know how the song goes, so I wouldn't know what to write. However, it's mentioned in the chart on the Simon Soundman page, so feel free to make that into a link, and then create the page for it. -- Ken (talk) 02:07, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Nobody has created a page because we don't know the actual title. Nothing under that name shows up in either of the music registration databases, and the only clip that's surfaced to date is in Dutch (and the title appears to be a rough translation). "All Those" seems pretty grammatically awkward, for example. Better to wait for a solo page until we have more solid info. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 16:36, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
The Simon Soundman page has a description of the song. If one of us has a clip, maybe a still image could be put on that page. --Minor muppetz 19:44, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Welcome?

There seems to be a conflict over what "Welcome" is. I was on the 45's page, and I clicked on the single of Welcome (CTW 99023), and I got the "Hi, welcome to Muppet Wiki!" notice. I was like, "Huh?" So I saw that the single's entry said it came from Sesame Street LIVE!, so I went there. That song said Welcome, (with a !), so I clicked on it, and I got redirected to the second issue of Sesame Mucho! Is there a page for the song called "Welcome!", and not the "Bienvenidos!" one? Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 04:41, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Apparently not. Is it different from "Bienvenidos!" other than the language? -- Wendy (talk) 04:51, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, I don't have any of the recordings, so I don't know how it goes. But I just wanted to alert the admins that the 45 of it gives you the Muppet Wiki welcome message, and that one album goes to another and it shouldn't. I can fix the albums, but I figured you guys would want to fix the welcome message. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 04:59, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I fixed the links and created the page Welcome! (song). -- Wendy (talk) 17:58, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Help with sketch

I have been trying to identify a sketch I saw some years ago (I believe on sesame street) with no success; I was hoping someone here could help me. An outdoorsman type with a lumberjack shirt is singing in a woodsy setting about the wonders of nature (something to the effect of "oooooh, for the call of the open fields!!") as he sways back in forth in bucolic rapture, a construction crew is busy paving and erecting a city behind him, and they finish just as his song does. I laugh every time I think of it, but have been unable to locate it. Can someone please help me pin this one down? thanks!

I usually identify that one as "Wide Open Spaces." This is the one you mean, right?
