Easter songs

When it comes to western holidays Christmas wins the pop culture game. Easter runs a distant second. Easter is seen either as a day only for kids, or as a solemn religious celebration with not a lot in between for us secular types. I’m not religious, and I don’t need more chocolate, but I have found some music that I go to every year in early spring.

See the music and pop culture clips below.

Gene Autry – Peter Cottontail – Gene Autry
Judy Garland – In Your Easter Bonnet (From the movie Easter Parade)
 Here Comes Peter Cottontail – by Rankin/Bass Productions
The Tale Of The Bunny Picnic – with Jim Henson’s Muppets
I Want an Easter Egg – Bugs Bunny
Everything’s Alright – from Jesus Christ Superstar
And finally, because as I said above, Easter is for kids:
Who Fed the Chickens? – Ella Jenkins

 

Happy Easter!
