Chance the Rapper rocked audiences with a fantastic cover of the ‘Arthur’ theme song at the Sasquatch! Music Festival over the Memorial Day Weekend.
Not to be confused with ‘Arthur’s Theme‘ by Christopher Cross, the Chicago rapper performed Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers’ theme song from the popular PBS children’ show. The cartoon series, about an anthropomorphic aardvark named Arthur Read, is one of the longest-running kids programs on PBS next to ‘Sesame Street.’
Chance, along with his band The Social Experiment, turned the beloved children’s tune into a bombastic anthem about peace and love. At one point during his rendition, he invoked the Washington crowd to chant, “every day it could be wonderful.”
We hope that Chance will record a studio version of Ziggy Marley’s song for his next studio project.
Overall, it was a wonderful kind of day for Chance the Rapper at the Sasquatch! Music Festival.
