This is a silly (as in non-serious, just for fun) Easter-related post.
Thinking about Easter coming soon, memories from my childhood come rushing back. It may have been a long time ago, but some of these are still so vivid! I have visions of Chocolate Easter bunnies, Easter egg hunts, and those speckled, colored malted milk ball eggs. Remember those? Then we always had a new spring dress with patent leather shoes for church. Didn’t you have some just like this?
The Musical Memory Part About Easter:
It was also the season we were allowed to play our favorite Easter record. Do you remember “Peter Cottontail: Easter and Springtime Favorites”? Oh, my. We played it, and played it, and played it. And we sang. At the top of our lungs. With the “Wheeler Singing Ability” that we all possess. (you know we can’t carry a tune…) We knew every song by heart. I can only imagine what the neighbors were thinking… They probably knew all the words, too!
If you’ve never heard this album, give it a listen. I’ve included the title track below. Just remember, I was young. And this was outta sight! Can you dig it?
This album also includes our other favorites:
- I Could Write a Sonnet (about your Easter bonnet)
- The Flippity Floppity Rabbit
- Oh, What a Beautiful Morning (Oh, what a beautiful day…)
I’ll save you from the rest of the list, but if you want to hear all the other songs, they are on YouTube, just waiting for you.
Or maybe you still have a turntable? Because I still have that record and would love to play it for you…
Now, wasn’t that awesome, enlightening, ridiculous? Do you have any favorite Easter memories? Share with me, please!
I still want to sing along with these Easter songs… and I do. I’m not on stage, so no one is being forced to listen… And I think it was the chicken.
Loved all those songs and fun memories. When I was teaching I would play all those songs for my kids in class! They loved it and even sang along with me. They didn’t care how bad i sounded either! ? I never did figure out which came first. ??
