Remember “Born to Add,” That Sesame Street Tribute to Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born to Run’?

“Born to Add” is a charming Sesame Street parody of Bruce Springsteen’s iconic track “Born to Run,” featuring the lovable muppets Bruce Stringbean and Clarice from the S Street Band. Originally aired in 1979, the clip brilliantly captures Springsteen’s signature aesthetic and the emotional intensity of the original song. With clever nods to Springsteen’s distinctive vocal style and the fervent piano melodies reminiscent of “Jungleland,” another track from the acclaimed Born to Run album, the parody encapsulates the essence of the timeless hit while infusing it with Sesame Street’s whimsical charm.
