Rubber Duckie

From the TV series

Sesame Street





Originally Performed by Ernie

"Rubber Duckie" is a song sung by the Muppet character Ernie (voiced by Jim Henson) on Sesame Street. The song is named after Ernie's toy, a rubber duck affectionately named Rubber Duckie.

The song, written by Jeff Moss and arranged by Joe Raposo, was first heard by children watching an episode of Sesame Street on February 25, 1970. It was popular enough to be recorded as a 45 rpm single and became a surprise mainstream hit, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 26, 1970. It was nominated for the Best Recording for Children Grammy in 1971 but lost out to the album The Sesame Street Book & Record, which contained the song. The song had follow-ups "Do De Rubber Duck" and "D-U-C-K-I-E" and was the centerpiece of 1988's "Put Down the Duckie", performed by Hoots the Owl but also featuring Ernie.

Happiness Emporium : Right From The Start / Rise And Shine

Bob Dowma, Rod Johnson, Bob Spong and Jim Foy got together in 1972, and 2 1/2 years later they were Barbershop Champions. Since then they've been dealing in happiness, singing with it and creating it in their audiences. This is a compilation of 2 cds (with a groovy flashing cover), "Right from the Start" and "Rise 'N Shine," and there's a lot of happy nostalgia here. "Bring Back Those Good Old Days" sums it up, but they're all good: "What I Ask For My Little Boy," "Back In 1910," "If I Were A Rich Man," "It's A Good Day." 23 feel-good songs in all - a great deal from four merchants of happiness!

Songlist: My Lady Loves to Dance, Back in 1910, Sleeping Child, What I Ask For My Little Boy, Rock-A-Bye Baby Days, From the First Hello to the Last Goodbye, Run, Run, Run, Bring Back Those Good Old Days, Linda Rose and Will I Ever Tell You?, Have a Happy Day, God Bless America, On a Wonderul Day like Today, Heart of my Heart, All The Things You Are, If I Were A Rich Man, And I Love You So, When I Lost You, It's A Good Day, On the Way to Home Sweet Home, It's Good to Know I'm Welcome In My Old Hometown, Rubber Duckie, Medley: We've Only Just Begun, Dear Hearts and Gentle People, Top Of the World, We'll Be Seeing You

Heebee-jeebees : Hurry Up And Wait

You are in for a treat. This recording contains straight ahead a cappella covers with no production embellishments, sung to you by the quartet who placed first in the 1997 Northern Harmony, A Canadian A Cappella Celebration. Now even though these songs are recorded just the way you could hear them performed on stage, the vocal kazoo and trumpet chorus on "Rockin' Robin does provide a distinctive, playful, embellishment. You'll find "Good Lovin'," "Blue Moon," "For The Longest Time," "Under The Boardwalk" (nice gargle effect there), "Duke Of Earl," "Sesame Street" and more, eighteen tunes in all. Go Canada! Get Heebee-Jeebees!

Songlist: Good Lovin', Blue Moon, I'm in a Hurry, The Boring Song, Rockin' Robin, Spiderman, The Longest Time, Under the Boardwalk, Duke of Earl, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, You Kissed Me First, Sesame Street, Runsaround Sue, Rocks, California Dreamin', Rubber Duckie, Kiss Him Goodbye, The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Tone Rangers : Total Musical Services

The Tone Rangers sound as though a group of barbershop singers felt that restrictions and formality of the style was too confining and collectively expanded their horizons first to seven singers and then to a wider variety of popular styles. Their tight, close harmony lends credence to this supposition. Additional clues are the beautiful version of "Loch Lomond" (beautiful tenor lead) and "Shenandoah." Then they go wacky with Al Yankovic's "One More Minute," "My Tzatzkele" and the live gag tune, "Rubber Duckie." Gospel and doo-wop arrangements round out the play list of familiar popular songs.

Songlist: She, One More Minute, Surrender, Loch Lomond, My Tzatzkele, Shenandoah, Heart, Precious Lord, Take My Hand, I Need You, Keep the Customer Satisfied, In My Life, Wild Thing, Rubber Duckie

Vocal Point : Instruments Not Included

Shortly after the release date of Vocal Point's debut CD in the fall of 1993, it became clear that there was huge interest, as "instruments not included" became a runaway best-seller. The nine-man a cappella ensemble features a repertoire here that ranges from a tribute to the Swingles, "Bach's Fugue in D Minor," the doo-wop standard "Drip Drop," Gershwin's classic "Summertime" and Terrence Trent D'Arby's "Sign Your Name" to U2's "With Or Without You" and the Scottish folk song "Scottish Spring." Originally produced by the group, this album joined the Tantara catalog when Vocal Point became a program of the BYU School of Music and signed on with Tantara. 19 songs: a silly rap takeoff on children's rhymes in "Child's Play," a jazzy "Paper Moon," the sweet "E'en So, Lord Jesus," the updated sea shanty "Hey Ho, Away We Go," the salsa-flavored "Brrlak!," "instruments" continually surprises. Fresh, fun, energetic, often manic contemporary a cappella from never-boring Vocal Point!

Songlist: Istanbul, Sign Your name , Fugue in D Minor, Drip Drop, Rubber Duckie, The Garden, Star Spangled Banner, Child's Play, Paper Moon, E'en So, Lord Jesus, Hey, Ho, Away We Go, With or Without You, Instant Mash, Scottish Spring, One Last Cry, People to People/When the Morning Comes, Summertime, Brrrlak!, Don't It Make You Want to Go Home
