Oh I love The Waltons. It brings back such memories. But for some reason, and maybe it's only me, I get depressed when I hear that theme song.

Gosh, Auntie, I'd rather you watch The Waltons than those f-ing Hoarders...

For a moment I thought you would play "I'd rather be blue thinking of you I'd rather be blue over you" from the Funny Girl-movie.
And like any Eurovision-geek I immediately recognized the song you played for Conscience as "L'amour est bleu" with which the wonderful Vicky Leandros entered the Eurovision Song Contest for Luxembourg for the first time in the mid 60s (she eventually won the contest for Luxembourg a couple of years later with "Après toi"). I'm sure she recorded an English version of it, too, and a French version, German and Dutch versions, an Italian version, and probably a Japanese version as well... Vicky is fabulous on an international level!
I've never heard an instrumental version of it though.
