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.
