Having just learned that today is International Literacy Day, I couldn’t let the occasion pass by without a post. Seriously, folks … reading is one of the best things ever. Pick up a book today! (/librarian)
Obviously, the choice of musical is The Music Man, since the heroine is, in fact, a librarian. Just to shake things up a little, though, I’m not going to share “Marian the Librarian” with you. No, instead we’re going with “Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little.” The reason why is because I absolutely LOVE the manner of contempt in which the town ladies utter some of the great names of literature: Chaucer! Rabelais! Baaaalzac! So, enjoy!
The movie: The Music Man (1962)
The song: Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little
