Patti Smith does Debbie Boone

My YouTube find of the week is this clip of Patti Smith’s 1979 appearance on the show “Kids Are People Too.” She takes questions from the kids in the audience and then sings … “You Light Up My Life”! Man, how I hated this song when it was played incessantly on the radio in 1977. Hearing Smith sing it is surreal, and it actually made me a little nostalgic for the song.
