Song Analysis: Rainbow Connection

Jim Henson's Muppets are already a synergy of themselves with the most imaginative of minds to begin with.

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and others are, for all practical purposes of judgement, literally "dolls come to life".

But imagination, when allowed to travel anywhere it wants totally unfettered, will invariably eventually travel into the realm of the spiritual and even the metaphysical.

And this song does all these and more.  It focuses on the fact that there has to be more than just the meaningless routines of everyday life and normal interpersonal interactions.

That communication goes beyond verbal cliches and mere exchanges of essential information.
That it's the subconscious silent communications between the terrestrial mortal and the cosmic overseers (who understand the importance of the intimate and of the concepts of stewardship---unlike the mortal terrestrial overlord "leaders" who only desire obedience and worship).

The idea we all should be living primarily to be entitled to discovering the wonders and secrets of the world and of the universe we all exist in.
