    hmmmm. that town name doesn't ring a bell for me...

    *looking at Mapquest*

    Well it shows here that to get to Brookfield from Macomb I need to head in the direction of Chicago sort of and the trip takes about 4 hours...

    perhaps u can use mapquest or something and see for yourself to see if that's right.

    I think there should be some more polls on the forums.

    But I will post one here when I do.

    I've always preferred the Rainbow Connection to Being Green. Being green just always seemed really slow and I could nevere follow it well. When I was a kid I thought it was the most boring songs quite frankly. Rainbow connection is somethng I sing every other day because it has such a nice tune.

    Honestly when I was little I thought both songs were so dull I would instantly get up and leave the room. Now that I'm grown up I love them both, though I'd say it's a tie still. Both are good songs and have so much more meaning to them then it appears.

    Even though Bein' Green was performed on The Muppet Show it originated on Sesame Street so I kind of see program preference as a factor into the song preference. I prefer the Muppet Movie to Sesame Street so Rainbow Connection gets my vote. :)

    I love both songs, but Rainbow Connection wins it for me. It's so beautifully worded and it's just a really pretty song. But both songs have really nice messages. :)

    I really love Big Bird's rendition of Bein' Green at Jim Henson's memorial too. It always brings tears to my eyes.

    It's kinda funny. I found a book at Borders the other day titled "It's No Easy Bein' Green." It's full of quotes by Henson, Kermit and other people. They quote a bunch of songs but Rainbow Connection's not in it (at least I didn't see it). It could be that the theme of the book didn't fit with the song but it was an intersting thing to see.

    What a coincidence. I just bought that book about a week ago. In fact, it's literally only a couple inches away from my laptop. I love just picking it up and flipping through it. There are a lot of really great quotes in there. (My favorite quote is Kermit's on page 56). They do have the quote from the very ending of the Rainbow Connection reprise ("Life's like a movie, make your own ending..."), but yeah, I was surprised they didn't quote more of it.
