Sesame Street ZZ Blues

"ZZ Blues" is a song from Sesame Street, sung by a look-alike Muppet band of ZZ Top, here called "Over the Top". The song tells about the letter "Z", and how there are not enough words starting with the letter. By the end of the song, the band has fallen asleep from singing about the letter Z, including the lead singer, who "cops some Z's himself." They still play in their sleep, though.


  • On the "Count It Higher: Great Music Videos from Sesame Street" VHS, the video has MTV-style captions that refer to "US Snooze Records". The original VHS release included printed lyrics.
