Furry Happy Monsters (119/365)

Furry Happy Monsters - R.E.M.: Shiny Happy People has been proclaimed one of the "wussiest songs of all time", but R.E.M. brought it to a higher level when they made this version for Sesame Street. Interestingly, the original is based on a Chinese propaganda poster from the Tienanmen Square Massacres.

Monsters having fun, happy, happy,
See them jump and run, happy, happy,
Laughing all the while, cheerful, cheerful,
Flashing a big smile,
that's a perfect sign that they're feelin' fine!
Furry happy monsters feeling glad!
