The Rainbow Connection

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told, and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Someday we'll find it, the Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Who said that ev'ry wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me
All of us under its spell,
We know that it's probably magic.

Have you been half asleep and heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors
I know it's one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm s'posed to be
Someday we'll find it, the Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Yip, yip, yip
::pokes Demo's soft underbelly::

I love that song and I will admit right here and now that I wept when I heard Jim Henson had died. I was at work and I didn't even care. And that was back when it required a hammer to my thumb to make me cry.

The muppets were one of the very best parts of my childhood. That song is awesome

if you're in the mood for it a little faster and harder (and who isn't sometimes?) download the Me First & the Gimme Gimmes version of it. It's a little punked out :)

Jim Henson is my idol. He did what he loved for a living, had a lot of fun doing it, and influenced millions of adults and kids all over the world in a positive way. You just can't hope for better than that in life.

It makes me sad that I'll never meet him in person.

Ok now I have to get on Kazaa and get me some more muppets.

I was just listening to "grandma's feather bed" yesterday from the classic, John Denver with the muppets LP. I had this album when my kids were young.

Mer- my good friend Mark sings this and plays it on his guitar (or banjo, I can't recall which) with such feeling. I really want to get Allan to record him doing it. I LOVE that song.

Well it was nine feet high and two feet thick and soft as a downey chick,
it was made from the feathers of fourty-eleven geese,
took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick

It could hold 8 kids and 4 hound dogs plus a piggie that we stole from the shed.

Didn't get a lot sleep but we had a lot of fun in grandma's feather bed.

My very very very favorite is "I'm Going To Go Back There Some Day" by Gonzo. w00t, frickin' Muppets. Tark hates the Muppets. Tark is a wonderful man in all other ways, which is why we let him live.

Demo, my man. You never fail to amaze me.

You should probably see someone about that MPD problem.
