We don’t know the exact year that this clip first aired, and frankly, we’re not even sure we want to know, as the sight of Patti Smith singing “You Light Up My Life” to an audience of overjoyed kids is so wondrous and strange, we’d like to think it took place within some yet-to-be-realized astral plane. The best part is the pre-performance Q&A, in which Smith’s mentions of punk rock and Mick Jagger elicit shrieks of joy from the romper-room crowd. Be warned: This could make you weep with joy for days on end.
