    I agree that there isn't a 'worst' song; I just wanted to keep the thread title relatively short.
  5. Dominicboo1 Well-Known Member

    Muppet movie best
    Favorite - Rainbow Connection
    Least Favorite-I hope that something better comes along (cute but not as good as the others)
    Great Muppet Caper
    Favorite- Happiness Hotel (very Muppet like)
    Least-Miss Piggy's Fantasy (Nicky's voice is irritaing)
    Muppets Take Manhattan

    Least- If Boom Sha Kal a Kah counts otherwise Sailing For Adventure.
    All the songs are great however.

    Well, that's kinda the point. Piggy's Fantasy is supposed to be an over-the-top pastiche of the Busby Berkely movie musicals.
  7. outerelf Active Member

    The Muppet Movie
    Most favorite - I hope that Something Better Comes Along
    Least favorite - Never Before

    The Muppets Take Manhattan
    Most favorite - Right Where I Belong
    Least favorite - You Can't Take No For An Answer

    This is going to be hard, but here goes...

    The Muppet Movie:
    Favorite: The Rainbow Connection/Moving Right Along.
    Least Favorite: Never Before, Never Again.

    The Great Muppet Caper:
    Favorite: Happiness Hotel.
    Least Favorite: A tough one, but I'll say Miss Piggy's Fantasy (though if you asked me 8-18-year-old self my answer would have been The First Time It Happens).

    The Muppets Take Manhattan:
    Favorite: Together Again/You Can't Take No For an Answer/Right Where I Belong.
    Least Favorite: She'll Make Me Happy (while I enjoy watching it, when I listen to it on the 25th anniversary album, where you don't get the visuals or the fun lead-up, it's boring).

    The Muppet Christmas Carol:
    Favorite: Scrooge/ Thankful Heart.
    Least Favorite: When Love is Gone.

    Muppet Treasure Island:
    Favorite: Cabin Fever/Something Better.
    Least Favorite: Pretty much all the songs (the ones listed in favorites are the best in a movie of songs I don't care much about).

    Oh I never heard of those musicals before. The song isn't that great compared to the others anyway, but thank you Princeton for explaining that to me.
  13. outerelf Active Member

    Wahahaha- it looks like Miss Piggy's songs/love songs are the least favorite generally speaking. The pig would chop us into next week if she could see this!

  15. Muppet Loverr Member

    what is wrong with you guys with think Never Before is the worst song from The Muppet Moviee..
  16. heralde Well-Known Member

    Yeah I was surprised that was so often voted as the worst song. It's a nice number, and Johnny Mathis I believe also did a very moving version in one of the Muppet specials. :)

    Yeah that's really strange to me. I personally loved the Piggy Fantasy number in GMC, the way we see Kermit and Nicky competing for her attention, lol.
  17. Dominicboo1 Well-Known Member

    I might have enjoyed Piggy's Fantasy if I had seen the musicals on which the number is based. Never Before is a good song though.
  18. heralde Well-Known Member

    Oh I'm not even particularly a fan of those musicals, I just like the Muppet version, lol. ;)
  19. Dominicboo1 Well-Known Member

    That's true, but then I would have understood Nicky's voice in the song.
  20. Princeton Active Member

    I'm surprised there's not much love for Steppin' Out With a Star (from GMC).
