Some of the Best Lessons in Life Came from School House Rock--Kimberly Sabatini

This month were talking about how art and media had an impact on us as we were growing up…



I loved School House Rock for a million reasons. I learned grammar, math, history and science in a way I still remember 35ish years later. The power of music on memory is pretty amazing.

But there was one that always made me feel amazing. I think it speaks for itself…



If more people understood this, we'd have a lot less problems. I tip my hat to School House Rock.

Were you a part of the School House Rock generation? Can you still sing them? Which one was your favorite? Don't know what the heck I'm talking about? You need to go rent some School House Rocks and make yourself cool.

  1. Loved these when I was growing up and bought the set so my kids could experience the same enjoyment. For the record, Interjection is my favorite (it was my kids' favorite too. They like seeing the bare-butted boy getting a shot).
