Reading Rainbow Theme Gets The Rock Treatment

June 7, 2012


This is a video of TheHumanTim performing a rock version of the theme from LaVar Burton's Reading Rainbow. Not gonna lie, it could have used some Geekologie Writer vocals. *clearing throat*

♫ Butterfly in the sky

I can go twice as high
Take a look
It's in a book
A Reading Rainbow

I can...not read these words
I only know
the very first part
now this is awkwaaaard ♫

Appropriately, the video ends with a clip of Tim reading Jurassic Park -- but you don't have to take my word for it. Get it? Because LaVar used to say in every show. Also, "I'm tired of wearing this stupid f***ing VISOR -- make Data do it." (That was from Star Trek)

Hit the jump for the song.

Thanks to The Bradinator and Andy, one of which may actually make people call him the Bradinator (I suspect it's Andy).

    I remember Reading Rainbow, Mr. Rogers, Between the Lions, Magic School Bus, Bill Nye; the kids show that actually used to teach you things, not just have idiots dancing around in costumes to horrible music and flashing lights.

    Pretty dang awesome!, though hasn't the hardcore scene died off yet? A bit tired of it, myself.

  • RhetoricalQuestion

    Even if that was close to hardcore, no, we're not going anywhere.

  • GirlFromSpace

    there's nothing hardcore about that nerd. :p
