As a very young kid, there were four shows I remember watching very frequently that most in my generation will recall: Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, The Electric Company, and 3-2-1 Contact.

LilyOf these shows, I recall bits and pieces of skits and songs. Some are a little more familiar with the retro crowd: The Bloodhound Gang, the sillohuettes speaking to each other, Lily Tomlin as Edith Ann sitting in a giant rocking chair, and even Spider-Man shorts tucked into the science bits. But there are two songs that really stood out for whatever reason, and they have been stuck in my head for about 25 years.

I spent quite a bit of time searching for them online, but to no avail. I never was able to find them …until last night. I randomly decide to check them out again. Lo and behold, I foudn them both within minutes. God bless YouTube. So here are two songs that made enough of an impression when I was about 5 to stick in my head for 26 years. Enjoy.

Here is “Punctuation”

And here is “T-I-O-N tion tion tion tion”
