First, I can not even begin to tell you how utterly amazing this find was:
Thank you Sara.
Next, I love me some Joshua Radin. And you should too. I also love me some Scrubs. Again, you should too. Joshua Radin and Zack Braff are quite good friends in real life (Zack has directed a few of Radin’s music videos) and Radin’s songs appear in Scrubs throughout the past few years. (Who could forget season three when Winter played during the funeral? Still makes my cry every time I watch it.)
In case you don’t watch Scrubs, JD (played by Braff) day dreams a lot and has an inner monologue which serves as a sort-of-but-not-always narrator of the show. The episodes usually end nicely with a little “lesson” (if you could call it that) or a “wrap up” by JD. The reason I am telling you all of this, and there is a point, is because on a recent episode of Scrubs, JD’s day dreams were filled with the characters of Sesame Street. During the ending “wrap up” the theme song for Sesame Street played, but it was a newer version slowed down and set to the piano by Joshua Radin. And I must say, I find it really beautiful. I found a video of the show with the song in the background…
Sorry that you have to endure the dialogue. Not that there is anything wrong with the dialogue, but you know, it sort of overshadows the song, which was kind of the point of putting the video on here. If you click right here you can see a guy playing it, though the video is rather dark. Dark in the sense that there is very little light, not in the sense that they have taken all the innocence out of Sesame Street. Because that would just be sad.
