The Amazing Emporium of Wondrous Tunes (aka: What are you listening to?)

Next as I continue down rabbit hole is that scene in Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Kindergarten Cop, where the kids are settling in for an afternoon nap. Arnie reads an A.A. Milne poem "Spring Morning" to the kids:


Love the poem, by the way:

Where am I going? I don't quite know.
Down to the stream where the king-cups grow-
Up on a hill where the pine-trees blow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don't know.

Where am I going? The clouds sail by,
Little ones, baby ones, over the sky.
Where am I going? The shadows pass,
Little ones, baby ones, over the grass.

If you were a cloud, and sailed up there,
You'd sail on the water as blue as air.
And you'd see me here in the fields and say:
"Doesn't the sky look green today?"

Where am I going? The high rooks call:
"It's awful fun to be born at all.
Where am I going? The ring-doves coo:
"We do have beautiful things to do."

If you were a bird, and lived on high,
You'd lean on the wind when the wind
came by,
You'd say to the wind when it took you away:
"That's where I wanted to go today!"

Where am I going? I don't quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the blue-bells grow-
Anywhere, anywhere. I don't know.

Saw Eddie Van Halen mentioned a few posts back, which reminded me of this ...

(warning: it's pretty daft, it features 1980s big hair and you'll have the song on the brain for the rest of the day)
