    "Can You Picture That?" I love that song, Drtooth. It was a rock and rool tune, but still it's one of my favorite songs from TMM right after "Rainbow Connection." "I Hope Something Better Comes Along" song is okay, but still has some parts that crack me up. Boy, do I miss Jim Henson.

    Well, Pictures In My Head is my absolute favorite song from the movie, "The Muppets." Not only did he miss the gang, he also still misses someone that started the Muppets. This song definitely reminds us of Jim Henson. The sad part is I was born on September 20, 1991 a year later right after Jim was gone. I miss him, Dominicboo1. (cries).

    I wasn't going to respond to this thread at first but then I found the concept rather intruiguing, so here goes...

    The Muppet Movie
    Favourite: Rainbow Connection
    (Side note: Three other songs came close)
    Least favourite: Never Before, Never Again (although the accompanying footage is hilarious)

    The Great Muppet Caper
    Favourite: Hey, A Movie
    Least favourite: The Muppet Fight Song
    (Side note: Piggy's Fantasy, which was dissed repeatedly earlier in this thread, is one of my favourite Muppet sequences of all time)

    The Muppets Take Manhattan
    Favourite: Saying Goodbye
    Least favourite: I'm Gonna Always Love You

    The Muppet Christmas Carol
    Favourite: One More Sleep 'Til Christmas
    Least favourite: Marley and Marley (I never thought this was a good idea)

    Muppet Treasure Island
    Favourite: Cabin Fever
    Least favourite: Sailing For Adventure

    Muppets From Space
    Favourite: The Gambler
    Least favourite: Celebration
    (Yes, I'm being completely serious)

    It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie
    Favourite: Everyone Matters
    Least favourite: Moulin Scrooge (With the exception of Santa Baby)

    A Muppet Christmas: Letters To Santa
    Favourite: I Wish I Could Be Santa Claus
    Least favourite: The opening number in the post office (whose title escapes me)

    The Muppets
    Favourite: Life's A Happy Song
    Least favourite: We Built This City (I couldn't make myself pick any of the Muppet songs, or even Let's Talk About Me)

    I have no comment on The Muppet Wizard of Oz because I haven't seen it in five years and its music really didn't make that much of an impression on me.

    (Original post - Side note: Piggy's Fantasy, which was dissed repeatedly earlier in this thread, is one of my favourite Muppet sequences of all time)
    Why, thank you Heralde. I was beginning to wonder if anybody else liked it. I know the song is ridiculous and over-the-top (as was most of the music accompanying the Esther Williams underwater sequences that obviously inspired that GMC scene) but the whole thing is just such a blast.

    I'd love to have been a fly on the wall during the GMC planning stages when that scene came up for discussion. I wonder if it was Jim (who directed GMC) that conceived it or one of the writers. The whole thing is just so crazy and insane, right down to the sight of Piggy underwater blowing bubbles out her nose, and yet it's so beautifully done at the same time. That had to be a hard scene to film.

    But hey, we all like what we like, and vice-versa. I could be opening a huge can of worms by saying I actually liked hearing James Brown belt out "GET UP OFF OF THAT THING" while a bug-eyed Gonzo carved a message for his alien family on the lawn using a ride-on mower in MFS. That just struck me as funny for some reason. To each their own, though...

    Well, hey, I found it initially hilarious, and now I've kinda warmed up to it again. The sequence, not the song.

    Best: Man or Muppet
    Worst: Me Party

    Don't worry. I still like that song. It's just that it's my least favorite of the whole movie. That's all.

    Least Favorite: Eh....

    The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland
    Favorite: It's been so long since I've seen this one. What was that song that the plant sings to Elmo to get him moving?

    Least Favorite: Didn't have one. Yeah, as random as "Me Party" is, I do find it sort of catchy. And Richman's rap is kind of funny.

    The Muppets... Again!
    Favorite: "Life's Still a Happy Song", "Images in My Skull", and "Josh and Me at the Playground"
    Least Favorite: Okay, that song that Miss Poogy and the 80's Robot sing, I wanted to like it but it was just so... random!

    Okay, I obviously wasn't serious about that last one.:)
