"What Makes Music?" is a Joe Raposo song about the many things which are musical and how "When you're happy on the inside, ev'rything you hear is music." The song was later released on Sesame Disco! in a new disco arrangement.

The song was remade by Elmo, Alan, the Kids, a Honker, a Dinger, Oscar the Grouch and Telly Monster in the 2000 home video Let's Make Music. Bob also performed the song on the show in the early 90s with some kids.

An instrumental of the disco version of the tune plays over a video of David called "David Disco Skates." (SSvideo)

Live performances

The song was sung by Elmo, Rosita, Bob, Gordon, Maria, and Alan in the Evening at Pops program in 2001.
