Because the Light

Check out this retro goodness. In 1979, Patti Smith performed Debby Boone's 1977 chart-topping hit "You Light of My Life" on the ABC Sunday morning show, Kids Are People Too. After her performance, the sincere and sweet Smith took questions from the teenage audience and the kids' questions are pretty entertaining.

Thank you Kathleen Hanna for pointing this out.

Also, tomorrow, Patti Smith will be honored by ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) at its 27th annual Pop Music Awards at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, CA, where she will be given the ASCAP Founders Award. She deserves it!
