Wanted to get you in the mood for the fourth of July. Isn't it catchy? And nostalgic. And a little goofy too, what with the guy chasing the gal to represent “the pursuit of happiness.” What were they thinking?
Fourteen of these animated short films are now available on a DVD titled Schoolhouse Rock: Election Collection. Providing children with an entertaining look at American history and American government, the fourteen songs in this collection are:
• No More Kings
• The Preamble
• The Great American Melting Pot
• Mother Necessity
• Sufferin' Until Sufferage
• I'm Just a Bill
• Three-Ring Government
• I'm Gonna Send Your Vote to College
• Tyrannosaurus Debt
• Tax Man Max
• Walkin' on Wall Street
• The Energy Blues
• Presidential Minute
For the musician in the family you might be interested to know that The School House Rock Songbook exists.
Now, I wonder if I can get that "Fireworks" song out of my head!
