This morning on my walk to the subway, my own personal joke unexpectedly blared through my ear buds courtesy of my iPod's shuffle setting. Instantly, childishly, I couldn't stop grinning. Maybe it was yesterday's trip down Nostalgia Lane with Mr. Rogers and sweater day, but when "The Rainbow Connection" — a song I long forgotten I'd added between my more street-credible faves from the Hold Steady, Metric, LCD Soundsystem — combined with a sunny day, Kermit & Crew made for a perfect morning moment.
Daily dishers: What song always pumps you up in the morning? Do you kick it old school with Aretha? Find yourself walkin' on the sunshine with some '80s nostalgia? Getting "Stronger" with Kanye?
