When my kids were much younger, we owned a cassette version of Michael Feinstein’s Pure Imagination. (This was a long time ago!) It was a great collection of songs we all loved: Lydia the Tattooed Lady, Teddy Bear’s Picnic, Swingin’ on a Star, The Ugly Bug Ball, and the title song, from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
But the one that captured our imagination had to be “The Dressing Song” from the impossible to describe film, The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. Turns out Theodor Seuss Geisel (yes, Dr. Seuss) wrote the story, screenplay and lyrics–which explains a lot.
Thanks to my son James for the reminder: just in case you haven’t heard, today is Do-mi-do Day!
Wish I had those cutie chamois booties with the leopard skin bows, don’t you?
