Todd Tilghman has unveiled the perfect duet for Father’s Day on Sunday (June 21), a duet of a Sesame Street classic song “I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon” with his son, Eagan Tilghman. The cover video not only features Todd and Eagan singing at a mic, but also clips and photos of Tilghman with his other children, making this the perfect video for Father’s Day.
“I Don’t Want to Live On The Moon” was written by Jeffrey A Moss and originally sung by Jim Henson, recorded for the 1980 album, The People In Your Neighborhood, the song then later made an insert during Season 15. A new version of the song was shot during Season 25 of Sesame Street as a duet between Sesame Street character Ernie and Aaron Neville. The song was then re-released in 1991 on a Henson celebratory album entitled, Jim Henson: A Sesame Street Celebration (Vol. 2). The song was also released as a book, I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon, in 2001.
In this cover the Tilghman Father, Son duo sing:
“Well, I’d like to visit the moon
On a rocket ship high in the air
Yes, I’d like to visit the moon
But I don’t think I’d like to live there
Though I’d like to look down at the earth from above
I would miss all the places and people I love
So although I might like it for one afternoon
I don’t want to live on the moon.”
