Last week of 3rd grade, San Francisco, 1986: I knew my family was moving away to Maryland soon and I'd be leaving all my buddies behind. After rehearsing this song for weeks, my whole class sings this song at some end-of-the-schoolyear ceremony and we're all pretty emotional, and there's sobbing, and I think I was one the sobbers. No lie, this song taught me about the true power of music. I think I felt like an adult for the first time. FWIW, some of my fav. radio songs at that time were "Every Breath You Take," "When Doves Cry," "Shout," "Billie Jean," "Dancing On The Ceiling," and "Here Comes The Rain Again."
Why is this song, the original (and best), not available on iTunes (along with the fabulous Movin' Right Along)? I love it, have done since it was released. Thankyou Paul Williams and the sadly missed Jim Henson
