You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

Children of Tomorrow

Posted by shanoah on March 20, 2009

I did forget about the Spring Equinox, didn’t I?

Oh well, one last helping of Fraggle Rock.

Here, Jim Hanson shows the power of propaganda, and how a minor incident, few convincing people, some whipped up hysteria, and suddenly you’re invading Poland. This song is called It Could Happen To You. And yes, this is from the same episode that had Mokee in a cage in my last post…

Here is the song that actually got me looking at other Fraggle Rock songs, the Children of Tomorrow. It’s upbeat, uplifting, and very catchy. And, of course, is about living in harmony with other people, and not going off and fighting with them like in the last song.

And finally, I thought I’d throw in this Insect Rock song. No social commentary on this one. Just “…I’m going to look after you, but first I have to go do some dancing.“, a rather silly dance craze, and an insect doing his best Igor impression.
