Making Sweet Music

This story of a "street piano" in Sheffield, England, reminds me of my parents' The Mamas and The Papas record album that my sister and I used to dance to when we were little.

The song in particular I'm thinking of has these lyrics:

All we need is music (sweet music), sweet music (sweet music). There'll be music everywhere (everywhere). There'll be swingin', and swayin', and records playin', and dancin', in the streets. Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there. So come on, every guy (come on) grab a girl, everywhere around the world. There'll be dancing--- they're dancing in the street.

So everybody, grab a street piano, grab a friend, and get moving!
