It is hard to believe that Schoolhouse Rock! turned 40 on January 6. (H/T to my Facebook friend ADN for reminding me.) Now I really feel old.
Although the original Schoolhouse Rock! ended in 1985, it still resonates with me and with many of my peers in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Indeed, I can still sing along with most of the Grammar Rocks, America Rocks, Science Rocks, and Multiplication Rocks songs.
Conjunction junction, I totally know your function.
Among my favorite Schoolhouse Rock! songs were (and still are)...
Bummer about Pluto.
"Unpack Your Adjectives"...
He was a hairy bear,
He was a scary bear,
We beat a hasty retreat from his lair.
"Sufferin' Till Sufferage"...
Now if we could only get more Senate and Cabinet seats, and partnerships and executive positions -- and get paid as much as men.
And "I'm Just a Bill."
That last one could probably use an update, to include lobbyists and filibusters.
So what are (or were) some of your favorite Schoolhouse Rocks! songs?
