Lick them blues

A Joe Raposo tune from The Electric Company.
Some songs can be Drano for mind-clogging negative thoughts.

Raposo - a Brazilian/Portuguese American from Fall River Massachusetts was a composer who wrote songs, score, background cues, and other music for Sesame Street and other Muppet projects. Raposo also scored Robert Altman's Academy Award-winning drama Nashville (1975). Raposo died from lymphoma in February 1989.

I didn't know he was from Fall Rivah! It's so funny, I was watching "West Side Story" last night and it's always backwards to me ... Rita will always be from kids tv first and grownup movies second.

I am pretty sure this was also used by the health department to demonstrate how syphilis is passed about!
