Mister Rogers Remixed Music Video: Garden of Your Mind


http://youtu.be/OFzXaFbxDcM

Did you ever imagine things?
Are they scary things?
Did you ever imagine things
Things you'd like to have?
Did you ever see a cat's eyes in the dark
And wonder what they are?
Did you ever pretend about things like that before?

Did ever grow anything in the Garden of your Mind?
You can grow ideas
In the Garden of your mind

It's good to be curious about many things
You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think
And they'll grow

Imagine every person that you see
Is someone different
From every other person in the world
Some can do things
Some can do others
Did you ever think about the many things you've learned to do?

Did ever grow anything in the Garden of your Mind?
You can grow ideas
In the Garden of your mind

It's good to be curious about many things
You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think
And they'll grow

Did you feel like going like that? (hand snap)
Let's give the fish some food
Mr McFeely, I didn't order any whistles
(music break)
That's what they call these slide things
Did you feel like going like that? (hand snap)
There are so many things to learn about in this world
And so many people who can help us learn

Did ever grow anything in the Garden of your mind?
You can grow ideas
In the Garden of your mind

It's good to be curious about many things
You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think

You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think

And they'll grow

A good man.

"In 1963 Rogers graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and was ordained a minister in the Presbyterian Church."

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Love it!

What great vid! And what a great show. How can anyone find it creepy? I don't understand those comments.

It's the vocoder effect used

on the vocal part.

It shifts the voice to chord-specific pitches (Think "I Want to be Your Man", by Roger [& Zapp] circa 1986-87. Or that Cher tune. Or tons of radio-friendly commercial hip hop / R &B.)

It sounds "roboty", weird, unnatural, and yes... creepy. (It is an over-used tool of our current pop / poop music industry.).

There was a similar vid done of Julia Child. Personally, I know it's good to get the message out, so to speak, but I wish people didn't hafta "slickify" everything to do it.

(But I am an artist / musician snob!)

What would the Founders do?

Excellent!

Thanks. :)

Really, really

creepy.

Mr Rogers is not creepy...

sigh
