I Need a Word
Tease Count :
I have a friend with a cape who can fly through the sky
Matthews / Mazzarino (2013)
This song appeared for the first time on YouTube on September 13, 2013. It was taken from the 44th season premiere of Sesame Street that aired on September 16, 2013. The segment begins with an obviously somber Dave sitting on front porch steps as Grover approaches, sounding as blue as he looks. They commiserate about their melancholy mood until Dave suggests that a song might pick them up. The two then combine on this duet the evokes memories of Dave's most powerful collaborations with the likes of Alanis Morissette and Emmylou Harris.
It is also worth noting that Dave plays a 6-string banjo guitar on this song. According to the band's webpage, Dave wrote the song specifically for the show.
