There's a popular drama on Japanese TV that is using Rainbow Connection by Paul Williams as their theme music. This version is sung by Karen Carpenter which I hadn't heard before. Anybody know who sung it first? The first version I heard was the version sung by Kermit the frog in the first Muppet movie. Just curious.
One problem with Japanese dramas and music is once they've picked a theme song it gets played for ALL music needed in the drama. There may be a few different versions but otherwise you'll here the song 5 to 6 times in a 30 minute episode. Ugh.
Also, something else I found interesting. I search the web for an answer and didn't have any luck but even more interesting there are quite a few pages about that song. That in itsself is interesting since it's pretty old but even more interesting to me is that 9 out of 10 pages didn't give any credit.
