C is for Cookie Monster cover version

Apparently C is not only for Cookie but also for Cover, as in Cover song.

Adding to the already impressive (or annoying, depending on your POV) collection of cover versions* of Carly Rae Jepsen's song "Call Me Maybe" (perhaps the most covered song ever, followed closely by Gotye's "Somebody I Used to Know"**) comes Cookie Monster's "(You got cookie) Share It Maybe."

Forget topping the Billboard Top 100 chart for five weeks in a row, all you singers and musicians. You know you've really arrived when Sesame Street covers your song.

Give that blue monster a cookie.

*This is still my favorite "Call Me Maybe" cover, though, which the teenager and I do whenever we hear it in the car -- until she tells me to put my hands back on the steering wheel.

**Love the Peyton Manning/Tim Tebow and Star Wars covers.

Nice one, J! Cookie Monster makes any pop song better. Nearly 3 million views in 2 days! Looks like CTW knows what they're doing after all these years.
