Day 16 → A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

I loooved An American Tail as a kid, and this was the song that had me singing my little 6-year-old heart out. I guess it's just nostalgia that has me tearing up over it now. It's not like I have any missing siblings or anything (or missing mice, for that matter). Listening to it now I really like that it actually sounds like little kids singing it.

The city doubled up Free Museum Day with get-into-museums-free-with-college-ID day so I ended up going to both the Academy of Natural Sciences and the Franklin Institute this weekend. Both were terribly crowded and required lots of stroller-dodging. I'm too big now to go through the giant heart, but I got to go to a show at the planetarium, which was fascinating as it was dizzying. They were setting up for a wedding at the Franklin Institute as I was leaving, and how cool it is to get married in a science museum? And them to have your reception around a gigantic statue of Ben Franklin! I never even got to go to one of those Girl Scout sleepovers in the museum.

I loove this song! I've never actually seen An American Tail, but my best friend growing up had a brother that played this on the piano and a sister that would sing it (badly) all the time, and they'd sing it together(nicely), too. Ah nostalgia!

See, it's the awesomest song to sing when you're a kid! And then to make you all nostalgic when you're older! XD
