  • Eight Big Bird Songs That Will Have You Singing “La La La La La”

March 20th marks the birthday of the biggest, friendliest yellow bird we’ve ever met.

Since he first arrived on Sesame Street in 1969, Big Bird has been charming children and adults alike with his caring heart, infectious joy, and unquenchable curiosity.

In honor of our favorite 8-foot-2 friend, here are eight Big Bird songs that will have you singing “la la la la la.”

Sing along with Big Bird to the most wonderful song we’ve ever heard about the most wonderful word we’ve ever seen.

2. Walkin’ Down My Street (1976)

Sesame Street is a special place, and nobody knows that better than Big Bird. In his words, “I’m at home and it’s a dream, walking down my street.”
