Kermit the Frog takes us down memory lane with an exceptional performance of the Oscar-nominated hit ‘Rainbow Connection.’
Initially written by Kenneth Ascher and Paul Williams, it was played first in ‘The Muppet Movie’ produced in 1979.
While it was produced a long time ago, it is still relevant amongst kids. The song was written for Kermit to play on his banjo. It is an homage to people who are searching for something more in life.
The story behind the song is motivational. It is about a character in search of meaning in a chaotic world.
The song, which is now considered for all ages, has remained relevant even for adults. Different NGOs providing aid for vulnerable children have also used it to promote their missions.
The song, which has now sold close to 80 million copies in America alone, has resurfaced on the internet. The lyric, “rainbows have nothing to hide,” shows pride in the human self.
The song also shows that human struggles are the same even with different voices, singing in unison. The music essentially informs people of all ages about following one’s dreams.
