We here at the blog are excited to announce a new series! In tandem with new PIO! Editor Brigid Finucane, we will begin sharing songs from the extensive archives once or twice a month. This song and article excerpt is from David and Jenny Heitler-Klevans, also known as Two of a Kind.
From David: “This song was originally inspired by a bumper sticker, and by the diversity of families in our neighborhood. Over the years, we have changed and added verses, and we have received verses added by other musicians – including the one by Freesia Raine which we included when we re-recorded the song for our “Family Album” CD.
The Chorus section of the song features an ostinato on the title, and the melody can be sung as a round in 2 or 4 parts. This song has been recorded by other musicians, including Mike Stern and Betsy Rose, and has been performed by some choirs as well.”
