One of my all time favorite songs is sung by…
Well… Kermit is no ordinary frog. I knew the Muppets long before Kermit made his appearance. Ralph the Dog was on the Jimmy Dean show way back when. I was just about a toddler, but I remember him.
I could post quite a bit about the Muppets and their contributions over the years. The duet between Rudolph Nureyev and Miss Piggy in the sauna room where Nureyev is singing ‘I really can’t stay…’ and Miss Piggy is trying to convince him otherwise. Swine Lake (from the same show). Pigs in Space with Lance Hogthrob…
Ah, well. I loved the Muppets. But oddly enough, I didn’t encounter this song through a movie or their show. I heard it on the radio back in the ‘eighties. The singer was terrible (who expects a frog to sing well?) and the DJ said he’d love to hear Judy Collins do justice to it.
I don’t know about that. Kermit, somehow, expresses for me the smile and the wishing and the determination.

Best of luck to all – I’ll meet you at the Rainbow Connection!
