    2. The only thing worse than "people" to me, are those that are also "up".

      So count me as #3.

  4. I still have the occasional nightmare from the time they came to my high school.

    I don't know if it was worse listening to their "message of song" in a midwest high school gymnasium or realizing that most of the people I hung out with were TOTALLY into them.

    Needless to say, I began cultivating new friendships post haste.

  5. More information than you want, I'm sure, but did you know that Up with People was at one time known as Moral Re-Armament? Even earlier they were known as a group of wet blanket tee-totalers called the Oxford Group. Another fun fact: today's Alcoholics Anonymous split off from the Oxford Group in 1935, apparently unable to handle all the upbeat singing, dancing and moral superiority.

  9. Well, this may cheer us up. I used to be acquainted with a guy who was in Up With People, and I believe he is in this clip. He is a lovely man, and now owns the Bob Damron publishing enterprise.
