Song of the Day #2086

Song of the Day: Three Little Pigs (“Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?”), words and music by Frank Churchill and Ann Ronell, made its screen debut in the 1933 Disney short, “Three Little Pigs“, which won an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film. Check out the original version from the short, as well as very different renditions by Barbra Streisand and LL Cool J [YouTube links]. Though neither a pig nor a wolf, Punxsutawney Phil, the famous Groundhog, has predicted an early spring. His prediction has been confirmed by Staten Island Chuck, who has the added virtue of having scuffled with a couple of New York Mayors. Chuck also boasts an 80% accuracy rate, compared to Punxsutawney Phil’s 39% accuracy rate. Either way, in two weeks, pitchers and catchers report to Spring training, and that’s as sure a sign as any that the Vernal Equinox is just around the corner!
