Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star shares its tune with two other nursery rhymes, namely The Alphabet Song, and a variation of it in Baa, baa, black sheep, as well as a variety of Christmas kid songs from various places in Europe including Germany, Hungary, Spain and The Netherlands. But Twinkle, Twinkle has also seeped into popular music culture throughout the years. It makes an appearance in the music of Louis Armstrongs What A Wonderful World, where a large portion of the melody is quoted in his vocal line, transformed by the use of swing rhythms rather than the conventional straight-eights. In another adaptation, Little Star by The Elegants reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1958. In more recent music culture, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince sampled this song in their Hip-Hop album Code Red (released in 1993) in a baby song called Twinkle, Twinkle (Im Not a Star). The most famous Country interpretation of the song is probably Someone Elses Star, recorded by Bryan White in 1995. Similarly, the song was also sampled in the American rapper Nicki Minajs new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in the kid song Starship.\r
The traditional song Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star was based on a poem called The Star, written in 1806 by the English poet and novelist Jane Taylor, one of the lesser-known poets of the Romantic era. This poem was first published in a book called Rhymes for the Nursery, which was written and complied by Jane and her sister Ann Taylor. The poem was first published with the music in The Singing Master: First Class Tune Book in 1838. Jane Taylor is very rarely credited with the poetry of this baby song, which many assume to be a traditional.\r
Although fairly literal, the lyrics of The Star contain the simile like a diamond in the sky. This was possibly intended by the author to facilitate a childs development of imaginative association. With the widespread educational use of this song in the present day western world, this may be one of the first descriptive analogies children come across in their formative years, freeing many childrens imaginations in relation to language for the first time.\r
It has also been argued that Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are, when played backwards, sounds like I wish there was no Allah, and in this way the poem has led to widespread atheism among children. Thats right, Led Zeppelin werent the only ones accused of masking the words of the Devil.
