Sarah McLachlan. Sarah McLachlan ruins this song. She makes it country - ish. She makes it morose. Rainbow Connection is not morose. It is a Kermit song. I have known Kermit my whole life, so let me explain something to you, Sarah McLachlan. Kermit the Frog is clever, sarcastic, heroic, ironic, courageous, grim, even angsty.
But he is not morose. Damnit. >.
