I occasionally think to myself excellent possibilities for musicians to cover other songs. I've always thought that "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" would be a great one for Tom Waits. I've also wanted to hear him sing the "Star Spangled Banner". But one particular wish of mine is Tom Waits covering an albums worth of Sesame Street songs. The Cookie Monster song "C is for Cookie" is a no-brainer, but what about "I Love Trash" from Oscar the Grouch or "Elmo's Song" by Elmo. He sorta did a somewhat cover with "People in the Neighborhood" on one of his earlier albums. It's something to think about, Mr. Waits.
