  • Thanks so much for this,Kay! The Hamilton parody was dead on and Candlelight cracked me up. The Yale choir almost brought me to tears. Such tenderness for perennial hope. A Happy and latke filled Hanukkah to you!

  • We love the Maccabeats here at my house! Thanks for sharing the latest song.

  • As someone who saw The Muppet Movie at least 5 times in the theater, had the LP, and the easy-to-play piano music, AND whose mom could play the “real” (translate: difficult) piano part for “Rainbow Connection,” I’m pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to the soundtrack. With all of that said, this version is lovely. Not the same, mind you, but lovely just the same. Thanks for a beautiful start to my morning. (Loved the others, too, but Rainbow Connection is just such a big part of my youth, I had to comment.)

  • Oh, the Whiffenpoofs…gosh! I haven’t thought about them in 20 years…Thanks!

  • The Rainbow Connection was played as the Father/Daughter Mother/Son dance song at my son’s wedding. What a song to sob to at such a happy time.

  • Oh, my. The first man I ever loved was a Whiffenpoof. Talk about nostalgia.

  • Loved all these so much. But the dude in the superhero suit among the tuxes, while they all sang with such youthful sweetness? Perfection!

  • Ohhhhh, I loooove all of these! (Despite the ad for “The Solar Co.” plastered across those darling guys, that would not allow itself to be removed. Probably got a gander at my monthly PG and E bills and think me a likely customer)

    There was a lovely piece in the NY Times today about a Yale coed a cappella group and their reunion a couple of decades after the fact. Sweet and funny, titled “Singing Together Again”

    Thanks for all of this, Kay. Wish you and yours lovely festivities. I am looking forward to family arriving next week. Getting the house dressed appropriately as we speak. Tra la la …. 😉

  • Thank you so very much!

  • Lovely!

  • Oh my gosh on that Rainbow Connection. I’m beside myself!

  • I know this is late, but I just have to say how very much I enjoyed, and have become obsessed by, this version of The Rainbow Connection. I’ve listened to it everyday since you posted it and am wondering how I can permanently download it to my iTunes account. Thanks for this wonderful addition to my Christmas music, even though it doesn’t officially fit. I completely agreed about this recording “killing me”. Love, love, love. Wishing this young man much success in his career. A lovely, lovely rendition.
