The Garden Song with John Denver

April 13, 2010

This little family phenomenon has started to emerge in my household….it involves us all gathering around the computer that is hooked up to the good speakers and perusing tunes on Youtube…its not planned, dancing is always included and it just sort of happens…

Last night, the collection was my favorite, old, country tunes from my childhood. Lots of Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, a little Buck Owens and Loretta Lynn, and a heavy dose of all these paired with the Muppets.
Which got me all nostalgic and sad that kids today don’t have a comparable current equivalent to the Muppet show. What show gives us this in prime time?

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I do.  My favorite part is the singing delphinium, or perhaps they are foxglove?  I can’t tell for sure.  My 7 year old daughter was transfixed until they came on –then she replied “that’s weird” (deadpan) — which for a moment made me feel defensive, but then had to admit she is right. Whatever. I love it anyway and I hope you will share this and other gems from the Muppets on Youtube with your families….

    I shared this with my spouse and he said, ‘The modern equivalent of gathering around the piano.”

    My favorite bit is the thistle! And the fact that at the end, John is petting their fuzzy/prickly little heads! Awwww…
