Doin’ It Right-Rodney Atkins (Curb)

This is a little cheer-leader song for everybody, but mostly for under-achievers. Kinda’ like modern schools where every kid on the field gets a ribbon just for trying. When Mister Rogers used to tell every toddler in America “you are very special”, that was a good thing. Baby-minds make good use of positive feed-back, even when it’s just the nice old man on TV saying it. But telling adults the same thing, well, it just strikes me as maudlin and sappy.Doin’ It Right-Rodney Atkins (Curb) This is a little cheer-leader song for everybody, but mostly for under-achievers.
