Show excitement or emotion

Another great song from Schoolhouse Rock and part two of our occasional series (which sounds much more thought out and important than it really is).

'Interjections' takes just three minutes to fully (and memorably) explain the titular grammatical elements which, as we learn, are generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point, or by a comma when the feelings not so strong. Informative, educative and just really clever, this mini-masterpiece was written by Lynn Ahrens and performed by Essra Mohawk, an exotically named singer-songwriter who does a mean 'uh huh huh' and sounds like she's really enjoying herself.

I really like this stuff: where else these days can you watch cartoons and learn something other than what a wide range of tie-in toys there are available?
