A Song for a Sunny Day

6 Apr

This past winter Rob unearthed the “Saturday Morning: Cartoon’s Greatest Hits” CD that one of us had purchased years ago (I’m guessing Rob bought it.) It has been the soundtrack that he and my daughters have enjoyed on their rides to/from Stratton Mountain when we are up in VT. For Rob, he gets to reminisce about all of his favorite cartoons from a long time ago. For the girls, they are living in the moment and have quickly glommed onto a few favorite tracks. Somehow the CD found its way into my car and for the last couple of weeks, we’ve been listening to their most loved songs over and over. Here is “Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sun Shine In” from the Flintstones. Most of the songs are covers of the cartoon’s theme song, but this one is a cover of a song that Pebbles and Bam-Bam sang. I had to search youtube to figure that one out as I never recalled hearing this song in the Flintstones. Enjoy both versions on this bright and sunny day!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it Carole! Isn’t amazing how songs can trigger such strong memories for each of us?

    Hey Melissa, I was watching a dutch talk show last night and this wiz kid was on for becoming rapidly successful around the world for his music site plugging new music (http://22tracks.com)… I didn’t check it out, but I remembered the name so I could pass it on to you. You never know, right?
