Week Three: The Pinball Song

The Sesame Street Pinball Song is right up there along with The Alligator King and the “clumsy falling baker” in my (Norm’s) childhood mythology. The trippy pinball animations, the greasy Fender Rhodes riffs, a nutty time signature… this song has it all. And did you know that the original version was performed by the Pointer Sisters?!

The making of this song was a little different this week, as there is no MIDI file online and thus the song had to be mentally deconstructed, and arranged and sequenced from scratch. Lucky for us, I had already started working on this song about two years ago, where it has been sitting on the shelf ever since, waiting for its destiny to be fulfilled. And apparently destiny came in the form of a kazoo.
