Award-winning songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and independent solo recording artist Scott Cooley wrote the words and music for "Smitten with the Mitten," a candidate for consideration of being officially designated as one of Michigan's state songs. Scott sings and plays all instruments except the accordion, which was performed by wife Lenore Cooley. The accompanying video has been used by educators as a tool in conjunction with the free sheet music for piano made available on the internet archives to assist students with learning state symbols and history.
