Day 13

Day 13: A song that is a guilty pleasure

I remember when this song came out. I was working in a school that was a bit to the south of New Orleans. A blind person could tell which grade levels where on the play ground simply by which brother was being discussed. God forbid if you mention the wrong brother's name, that's fo' sho'.  A few years later, when I was working for Toys R Us in Pennsylvania, this same song was being played on the store PA system and without a second thought, I started humming along. Oh the looks I got from some of the co-workers... *laffz* You see, I'd only been there a week or two and they weren't quite sure what to make of me to begin with, then I started be-bopping to a kids' tune... Yeah, they pretty much thought I was nuts.

Well, I thunk about it, and thunk about it, and the best answer I can come up with is a box set I have called "Songs From The Street: 35 Years of Music". Growing up on Sesame Street, I still love the music and the show's ability to teach toddlers some very simple things while making it entertaining and fun. Besides, who doesn't love Oscar, Big Bird, Bert & Ernie, and Snuffy?

Charlie And Lola songs... My favourite being "The Bestest In The Barn"

I can't help it! They're just such cute, amusing little songs!

(I love the stories and TV series too!)

I guess since I'm not allowed to eat them - I'm going with the Oreo song...

Oh, Oh, Oh, ice cold milk
and an Oreo Cookie
They forever go together,
What a classic combination
When a dark, delicious cookie
meets an icy cold sensation
Like the one and only creamy,
crunchy, chocolate, O-R-E-O....
