Okay, I've known this for years but it's cool to see it on McSweeney's recommends:
The Who's "Boris the Spider" as a children's song
You can kick "Free to Be You and Me" to the curb. "Boris the Spider"? That's the gig. Fun deep bass, catchy refrain—the kids go nuts with it.
The best part is the mention of "Free to Be You and Me" cos that whole thing with Marlo Thomas kinda creeped me out in about grade 2...especially the Mel Brooks/baby boy voice thingy....*shivers*
