Chance the Rapper's Cover of the Theme to Arthur Will Make You Smile

Remember Arthur, the bespectacled little aardvark who reminded us via PBS to study hard, imagine, and most importantly believe in ourselves? Chance the Rapper just recorded a cover of the theme from the show and as the title suggests, it's just wonderful.


"It's a simple message, and it comes from the heart, believe in yourself, that's the place to start." Not that it's a sentiment that needs much else to drive it home, but Chance takes all the possible cheese out of it and really drives the point home with horns, and drums, and crooning, and what else? A little bit of collective clapping. You wanna sing along. You gotta sing along! Because sung this way, it's not just the theme to a kids' show, it's something you really feel too, no matter your age. [SoundCloud]
