Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases PBS’ own, Mister Rogers, with a PBS Digital Studios remix, “Garden of Your Mind,” which was done by the Symphony of Science’s John Boswell.  I would have never thought I would be featuring a Mister Rogers auto-tuned remix, but it really is pretty good, and as always, conveys a great message.  Mister Rogers was a fixture in many of our childhoods, and was an incredible American educator.

Fred Rogers work garnered recognition, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a Peabody Award, and he was inducted into the esteemed Television Hall of Fame.  He was a great man, and his work will continue to carry on.  Rest in peace, Mister Rogers.

These words find there place in his song, “Garden of Your Mind,”

Do you ever imagine things?
Are they scary things?
Do you ever imagine things?
Things you’d like to have?
Do you ever see a cats eyes in the dark and wonder what they were?
Do you ever pretend about things like that before? (Do you ever pretend about things like that?)
Did you ever grow anything in your garden of your mind? (In your garden of your mind?)
You can grow ideas in your garden of your mind?
(In your garden of your mind?)

It’s good to be curious about many things.
You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think and they’ll grow.

Imagine every person that you see is somewhat different from every other person in the world.
Some can do something (Some can do something)
Some can do others (Some can do others)
Did you ever think about the many things you learned to do

Did you ever grow anything in your garden of your mind? (In your garden of your mind?)
You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind.
(In your garden of your mind?)

It’s good to be curious about many things.
You can think about things and make believe
All you have to do is think and they’ll grow…”
