THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW
Words and Music by Johnny Marks
From the 1964 stop-motion Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 

There’s always tomorrow for dreams to come true
Believe in your dreams come what may
There’s always tomorrow with so much to do
And so little time in a day

We all pretend the rainbow has an end
And you’ll be there my friend some day

There’s always tomorrow for dreams to come true
Tomorrow is not far away

I get smitten with songs and today’s crush is THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW by Johnny Marks (from Rudolph). I always loved this song from the TV special. Before there was TOMORROW from Annie, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’s love Clarice sang this song to him. The messages of both songs are similar. But one should definitely not belt this one out like a broadway musical. This is an appeal to patience, almost a lullaby, sweet and loving. I also love how the song RAINBOW CONNECTION might have taken a que from this lovely waltz. They both speculate on what we pretend or believe about rainbows. The point is that the magic exists in our belief (in the magic of rainbows and the potential that exists) in ourselves and patience and endurance to make our dreams come true (especially when they don’t happen instantly). I was thinking about this all and sat down with Aunt Mary Pickle (the green soprano ukulele) and worked out an easy chord arrangement to accompany myself to sing it. And it’s a somg with resonance for all of us embroiled in the world turned topsy-turvy by the Coronavirus. Hang it there and don’t let go of your dreams. Next up to make a sing along collage poster to go with it.

Don’t Stop Thinkin’ About Tomorrow, an Illustrated Song from the LyricPop Series of Illustrated Songs

LyricPop is such an interesting, diverse series of songs. These are all songs you would hear on the radio, beautifully illustrated to share their song-stories, ideas, and cultural heritage with your children.

When we listen to songs on the radio, we are often most captivated by the music that the words were written to sing, and the words get lost in the beat and instrumentation.

But the words to these songs really stand on their own as stories and vehicles for ideas.  That’s what’s great about books like these. You can share these wonderful WORDS and IDEAS with children, separate from the music, so they can understand what is being said, before the music dominates the thought process.

The first 4 titles in this series will be released in early June 2020, a second set in October 2020,  and a third set in early 2021.

This fun little adaptation can be played on uke and with fun instruments by one person, or facilitator can request audience members volunteer to play along.  I suggest, of course, that the facilitator keep any instruments that require the mouth to herself!  But everything else can be played by participants.

I have a bag full of a fun collection of music makers: jingle bells stick, tambourine, bicycle bell, rubber duckie, honker, desk bell, maraca, glockenspiel, dog toy with squeaker, castanet, triangle, egg shaker, lollipop drum, mini cymbals.  Let your imagination go wild!

For facilitator: train whistle, slide whistle, bird water warbler, kazoo!

If the facilitator is playing solo, it’s best to keep it short and sweet.  Pick 3 instruments, line them up and sing them.
