Heard these guys on the rebroadcast of a Prairie Home Companion today, and oh my good giddy aunt, these guys give me goosebumps.
Feelin’ this tonight.
Bluegrass done right.
When people ask me how I ever became interested in Native Americans, I wish I could simply play this song for ‘em, and tell ‘em that I grew up listening to this.
You know how TV theme songs are supposed to compliment or say something about the show? Set the stage before you even see the show? If it’s a comedy, the song will be happy and upbeat (Happy Days), mysterious shows get dramatic intros (Doctor Who and Sherlock), etc.
Suicide is Painless is the one theme song that compliments the sadness and the sense of hopelessness in M*A*S*H. It’s the one theme song that makes me so sad. It really is the perfect fit for my favorite TV show.
This song got stuck in my head this morning and has relentlessly followed me everywhere throughout this hectic day.
Feelin’ this song tonight.
I haven’t said it for a long time, so here I go again: GUYS, I REALLY, REALLY LOVE THIS CHILDREN’S TV SHOW.
Marlo Thomas and Harry Belafonte, singing “Parents are People,” 1972.
Rewatched the super-awesome ending of Portal 2, and got this song stuck in my head. GLaDOS and Jonathan Coulton, I love you both so frickin’ much.
