Accentuate the Positive

Law of Attraction, Perry Como-style!

Dork alert: I’ve been trying to find this version of the song for nearly 14 years and finally found it today. Having watched “Blast from the Past” initially while brain injured, the Perry Como reference totally escaped me until we watched it again tonight. Actually, I missed it again, but when I started singing along, David nonchalantly said, “Perry Como” and found the song on YouTube. I haven’t felt so giddy about a silly quest since I found the Golden Beet after five years of searching for what I thought were yellow pickled turnips made by my Korean college boyfriend’s mom.

Synchronously, as I was relaying the tale of finding the Golden Beet and comparing it to the satisfaction of finding “Accentuate the Positive,” I realized I happened to be eating … a golden beet. (We made roasted root veggies to eat while watching “Blast from the Past.”) My life is a MΓΆbius strip, but it sure is fun! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

    This needs to go up again, because it came on in the car and I can’t get it out of my head again. What’s not to love?

  6. I miss the clarity of diction from songs of that era.

    I have this sung by Louis Armstrong in my Happy Music playlist. He also does Zippity Doo Dah, another sweet uplift!
