Patti Smith. You Light Up My Life (Seriously). Kids Are People Too (Live). 1978.
This is why I always loved Patti. She’s the same person with everyone, and the kids love her, and if there was a dog on set it would dig her too…because it’s true what they say, you know. I don’t trust the person who doesn’t like children and animals, and vice a versa. And I love that she agrees to do this show when she is at the height of her fame and widely considered to be one of the coolest people on the planet. And then to choose a tune like You Light Up My Life? Punk rock.
Whoa. I remember this show but I do not remember seeing this episode. Damn.
This is so cool. I had forgotten about this show and wouldn’t have known who Patti Smith was way back then even if I did see this episode.
