Best/Worst songs from Muppet films

    I can't say I have a least favorite from any movie... but all my least favorites come from MFS... maybe the exception of Pepe singing "The Gambler," just.... another stupid decision to make use of one specific genre of song... One I happen to enjoy, but it comes out of left field, doesn't exactly mesh with the plot, and robs us of the Muppets singing something.

    Actually if I was going to make a list, I'd probably choose that one, hehe. I just can't pick "worst song."

    I agree Princeton it's a catchy verry Muppety song.

    Yeah, Mathis sang it in "Muppets Go Hollywood". Originally, he was to have sung it in TMM, but Jim Henson thought it would be funnier if Piggy sang it.

    As for favorite/least favorite, I honestly can't say that I have a least favorite other than maybe Piggy's Fantasy from GMC. Outiside of that, it's hard for me to choose a favorite.

    UGH! The Love is Gone scene stops the movie COLD! No wonder they took it out for film screenings only to put it back in the home video editions. I like MCC, but the very reasoning behind long segments with NO Muppets like that is the reason it's not a favorite of mine.

    I actually like the Love is Gone. It shows how Belle really felt about Scrooge caring more about money. It also was the first moment that showed Older Scrooge did have a heart, but just didn't like showing it. I think it's a sweet song, and one of the few moments with just humans I like in Muppet Movies.

    I havent watched some of the movies in a while and I have yet to watch The Great Muppet Caper, anyhow my favourite songs are:

    The Muppet Movie: Rainbow Connection and Moving Right Along
    The Muppets Take Manhattan: either Saying Goodbye or The Muppet Babies Song (I'm unsure if that is the correct title)
    The Muppets Christmas Carol: I really enjoyed the Scrooge song and the cheerful one near the end (again I forgot the name).

    Alright, I give in, lol, here we go:

    The Muppet Movie
    Most favorite: Movin Right Along (a lot of sentimenal value for me :) )
    Least favorite: ::sigh:: I'll have to give an update later, VERY hard to choose, lol

    Great Muppet Caper
    Most favorite: Steppin Out with a Star and Piggy's Fantasy
    Least favorite: Night life (Nice song, just feels like filler)

    Muppets Take Manhattan
    Most favorite: Seriously, the ENTIRE song and soundtrack is amazing, lol
    Least favorite: If I HAD to choose, it would be You Can't Take Know for an Answer. Again, not a bad song, just more of an exposition song to move the plot forward

    The Muppet Baby song is called I'm Gonna Always Love You. ( I think that one's cute too) The Cheerful Song is called A Thankful Heart (My 2nd favorite song probablyMCC has some of the best music.
    Night life isn't special, so I guess that's my least favorite instead of Piggy's Fantasy (I like Piggy's song but Nicky's voice drives me bananas!)

    Never Before, Never Again, is the only song I don't really care for in the movies.

    I loved all the songs in all three original Muppet movies. I did not care for the songs from Letters to Santa.

    I forgot to mention that I've only seen MTI once and can't really remember any of the songs, much less choose a favorite and least favorite.

    My least favorite song ever, is Never Before Never Again. It's just so annoying, and I really did not see the point of it in the movie

    I listened to Steppin' On A Star for the first time and I loved it. I do miss the original voices, but this song would be a favorite for all Muppet fans.

    I watched The Great Muppet Caper last night. I didn't care for the "Night Life" song. That didn't go with Dr.Teeth at all. Thinking of The Muppets Take Manhattan with the song "You Can't Take No For An Answer". It atleast did went well with Dr.Teeth and the movie, imo.

    That was their break into disco, and the only song in a Muppet Movie I find dated. But it's by the Electric Mayhem, so I can't complain about it.
