Muppet Monday

It's the first day of spring. No sun here, but no snow, either, so it's a mixed bag. But here's a cheerful tune celebrating the arrival of the season from a 1986 episode of Sesame Street. A nice one to listen to when taking a walk. Also, it's nice to see Forgetful Jones. Song by Cheryl Hardwick (music) and Maggie Bloomfield (music). Have a nice one!

Song of the Week: "Maybellene"

RIP Chuck Berry, the great rock 'n' roll pioneer. I've always liked his music. I still remember when my cousin gave me his cassette of The Great Twenty-Eight, the excellent Chuck Berry compilation, when I was 16. I played it in my Mom's car stereo every time she let me borrow the car. I wore that tape out playing Chuck Berry way too damn loud. This one was always my favorite, probably because of its driving rhythm.
