Geraldine Hunt - Can't Fake The Feeling

Herbie Hancock Demonstrates his Fairlight CMI

Seriously, we've posted a few Sesame Street videos on Ugly Talented but this one just takes the piss.

Not only have we got futureshocker Herbie Hancock schooling the kids on a $20,000 sampler but he also plays out with an electro version of the show's theme tune.

Also look out for a young Tatyana Ali from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Aah, but that's not all folks, check out this video of Herbie showing off his toys to Quincy Jones.

Billy Paul - Let The Dollar Circulate

Conquistador - Fruit Loopy

Marvin Gaye - A Funky Space Reincarnation [Alternative Extended Mix]

Willie Hutch - Brother's Gonna Work It Out

James White and the Blacks - Contort Yourself

Pieces of Peace - I Still Care
