Assuming it doesn’t happen before then, The Missus will be induced tomorrow to give birth to our first child. Once Baby D arrives, and we get settled, i’ll be back with the latest in obscure beat music, Nigerian speed rap, and tracks that skirt legality by utilizing heavily copyrighted children’s movie soundtracks. Oh, who am i kidding, i’ll probably keep blogging from home for the couple weeks i take off, but now you know why the content might be a bit slower than normal.
Probably because it is our first child, and we are Gen Xers, the Schoolhouse Rock classic “Three is a Magic Number” has become a theme song of sorts for us. To celebrate the imminent arrival (seriously, kid, you were due April 3; i hope you don’t plan on being this late for everything ‘cuz Daddy’s got shit to do), let’s return to the world of “It’s Covered.”
The song first appeared as the pilot for the opening season of Schoolhouse Rock. The song has since been covered by Blind Melon, a bunch of overseas TV stations and as source material for artists like De La Soul. Hell, Jack Johnson even rewrote the thing for his Curious George soundtrack. And now i’m sharing it with you.
