TftD: We all live in a Capital I ...

This song haunted me throughout my childhood. It has to mean something, doesn't it?

Yes, I've been indulging in some nostalgia shopping.

And if you like your childhood surrealism to come with a dose of romance, there's this too:

As the older sibling of a Sesame Street viewer (I was a little "too old," though of course one really never is), I was vaguely aware of the capital I song... and then, when I became obsessed with the Beatles, it took on a new significance for me. This wasn't just a Sesame Street bit; this was a Beatles-inspired Sesame Street bit!

P.S. I forgot to mention how I've always loved the hilarious minimalist anticlimactic nature of the final couplet!

Retreating within the ego-walls?

I was exposed to Sesame Street because I grew up in Hong Kong where we got a lot of American TV. It made its way to the UK later, so few British people of my (advanced) age have the same fond memories of it as I do. But actually I think its tolerant liberal agenda influenced me a lot. Not to mention the monsters :-)
