Zunzun

I don't know if this is right. Sun Sun Babae is an actual Cuban song from much earlier than Sesame Street (see for example the numerous versions on youtube from the '50s). What source is the basis for saying Raposo & Santiero's Zunzun is the song in this video? StreetScenes 03:25, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well, maybe I should ask a different question. I presume the source for this is the title listed in ASCAP. I seem to recall other folk or traditional songs that end up getting credited to Sesame Street composers and lyricists, sometimes noting that they are adapted or arranged or have alternate lyrics by them, sometimes not. I don't know what the procedures are for this in the music business, so I don't know whether to assume that's the case here, or to keep open the possibility that Zunzun might refer to a different song. Either way, we should acknowledge that this is a popular Cuban salsa song that has been sung by many artists (including Celia Cruz) before its appearance on Sesame Street. See for example Tito Rodriguez http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q29UMpP4vg or Jose Curbelo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYQzx1FgjXA&feature=related -- Kate 23:20, March 20, 2010 (UTC)
It looks like our information comes from ASCAP 498118588. —Scott (talk) 00:37, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
