lovely, love my family

Tonight's installment of Friday Night Videos:

The Roots singing "Lovely, Love My Family"

On the rare occasion that the t.v. is on (hee hee, that's a joke) and tuned in to Nick Jr. (is there any other channel?) and this little "commercial" just happens to come on, I stand up and boogie with my kids. Danny will usually join in because he loves a good dance party. Cate just tells us to stop dancing. I ignore her. How can I not dance to this song? I don't have a clue.

I think I saw this for the first time when Cate was just a wee babe. I had grand ideas of dressing up for Halloween as some kind of Yo Gabba Gabba! family. I figured Dan could be DJ Lance Rock and I could be his lady with the platform heels and knee socks. Danny would be Muno and baby Cate could be Muno's baby brother, GoGo. Nobody knows that GoGo is a boy right? It's ok to cross-dress in a Halloween costume if you're a baby.

And then I remembered that I don't like dressing up for Halloween and I don't know how to sew.

My favorite parts of this video are the sousaphone player and the pick in the drummer's afro. The sousaphone player reminds me of marching band. I really loved marching band. The drummer's afro pick is just cool.

Plus, this song helps me remember that I lovely, love my family too.

I think I have a crush on the guy in the blue shirt and on the main singers dimples. My 13 yr old nephew is listening saying, "that's a funny song."

i can't stand Yo Gabba Gabba, but that's a good song! notice that at 0:48, it looks like the orange lady kicks the orange guy and he doubles over. at 1:40, the blue shirt guy is all charm! I think he lovely loves me!

I lovely love the dimples too!

Cathy said...

Oh, Emily, you've got to give Gabba a chance. Watch the one with Jack Black. It's the best.

I do like the one with Jack Black, but only because I love Jack Black. Can we start the Mommy Blogger Marching Band? That would be rad.
