reverting

This morning I found in my inbox two videos from youtube.com that BFF BeLinda had sent me. They were both from Sesame Street. The first one was Bert and Ernie singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. The second was a tear-jerker in which the adults explain to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper had died (*sob*).

This made me link to search for a song performed on The Electric Company that I remember fondly. Remember the “Punctuation” song? I very randomly get this song stuck in my head and can’t stop singing it. “Punc-punc-punc-punc-tu-a-tion!”

I also came across the theme song to “Free to Be…You and Me” by Marlo Thomas and Friends (even though I'm pretty sure the video is a modern day remake). I had the record (on vinyl…yes I had vinyl) and wore it out. I fell in love with Carol Channing’s unique voice thanks to that record. Everyone! Sing along!

Ahh, good memories. I think I’ll search for some Bay City Roller’s Show next….
