That's a good one! I was working at the city newspaper when that series hit the air. People were all abuzz, as they say, claiming that they had never seen anything like it! There are some shows that hit and are considered SO COOOOOL for a varying period of time. Two of them I recall being considered the coolest were "Miami Vice" and "Twin Peaks". Even "The X-Files" earned only second-mention for a while as David Lynch had his moment. How odd that they don't rerun the series.

I just have to include this cover because I really like Hoagy Carmichael.

Hoagy again *sigh*

Hoagy always makes me feel that he's right there singing in my ear, preferably as we dance to these songs. "I've got a crush on you, sweetie pie." *giggle*

The Beatles - Like Dreamers Do - YouTube
This video shows why we Sixties teens fell for The Beatles so completely! Don't they look adorable~the scamps?! Later, we'd learn about their~umm~naughty side.

This song really is on the edge of sleep and dreams, but I love it, and it gets to me every time.

Muppet Movie - The Rainbow Connection - YouTube
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 every 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 stargazing, 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 have you heard voices? I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors. The voice might be 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.

I confess: I cannot listen to this song without weeping from opening notes to the end~and past it. How could this NOT win the Oscar?! I just looked: The song from "Norma Rae" beat it! How did THAT happen?! "It Goes Like It Goes" is nowhere near the song "Rainbow Connection" is! I found this fact at Wikipedia: The song is in every Muppet movie to date, sometimes just being hummed in the background! One critic compared Kermit singing the song to Judy Garland singing her rainbow song in "The Wizard of Oz"! *smiles* Both are wistful, full of hope and longing, and lovely.
