    Ok...



    The Muppet Movie:


    Best- Never Before. (Don't know why. Is cuz of Piggy, or my love for romance?)

    Least- Can you picture that?



    The Great Muppet Caper:


    Best- The first time it happens


    Least: ... I guess Piggy's fantasy, but I still enjoy it.



    The Muppets Take Manhattan:


    Best: I'm gonna always love you!


    Least: .... I got nothin'.


    Muppet Treasure Island:


    Best: Love Led Us Here


    Least: Every other one besides that, and Cabin Fever.



    Muppet Christmas Carol:


    Best: Bless Us All.


    Least: *shrugs* The rest of them.



    Kermit's Swamp Years:


    Best: Life As A Pet



    Least: Follow your star I guess. The first one, not the reprise.



    Muppets From Space...
    NO!



    Letters To Santa:


    Best: All about Heart


    Least: (I still love this one.) Delivering Christmas



    It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie:



    Best: Santa Baby or Everyone Matters? Dah!



    Least: Moulin Scrooge (It was a little too wierd, even for Muppets IMO.)




    The Muppets Wizard Of Oz:



    Best: The Witch Is In The House


    Least: Gotta Get outta Kansas.
    (Good opening, but get on with the Muppets! Muppet Movies, need MUPPET openings! DERP!)



    The Muppets:



    Best: Me Party



    Least: The Whistling Caruso (I love it, but all the others topple it.)




    There you have it.

    *Runs away*

    I completely disagree with him on that, except for the music choices.

    Amy Adams really must have begged and pleaded to keep that Me Party in there.

    Time better spent having the entire version of Let's Talk About Me.

    I love all the songs. I honestly dont hate any of them the really did good this time! The only one I didnt like until I saw the movie was Working in A Cole Mine but its grown on me now! But if I had to pick best it would be a tie between Were Doing A Sequel, I'm Number One, and Ill Get You What You Want


    Hope there is another movie so we can keep the list of movie songs best and worst going!!

    I guess ABC didn't like that one either since they edited out the whole song in their airing of that one. Lol.

    Is there a "Top 10 Muppet Movie Songs" thread on this forum? This thread got me wondering how I'd rank my ten favourites and then led me to an interesting conclusion about my favourite Muppet movie songs.

    Specifically: Choosing a favourite song (from Muppet movies or ANY movies) is one thing, but sometimes a song's presentation in a movie can go a long way towards cementing it as a classic musical movie moment.

    For example, here (off the top of my head) is my Top-10 List of Favourite Songs From Muppet Movies:

    1. Rainbow Connection (TMM)
    2. I'm Going To Go Back There Someday (TMM)
    3. Movin' Right Along (TMM)
    4. Hey A Movie (GMC)
    5. I Hope That Something Better Comes Along (TMM)
    6. Life's A Happy Song (TM2011)
    7. We're Doing A Sequel (MMW)
    8. Man or Muppet (TM2011)
    9. Couldn't We Ride (GMC)
    10. Happiness Hotel (GMC)

    But you'll notice that the selections change when I present (again, off the top of my head) my Top-10 List of Favourite Musical Moments From Muppet Movies:

    1. Rainbow Connection (TMM)
    2. Hey A Movie (GMC)
    3. Piggy's Fantasy (GMC)
    4. Movin' Right Along (TMM)
    5. Man or Muppet (TM2011)
    6. Couldn't We Ride (GMC)
    7. Life's A Happy Song (TM2011)
    8. I'm Going To Go Back There Someday (TMM)
    9. We're Doing A Sequel (MMW)
    10. Something So Right (MMW)

    I should also point out that "Me Party" came very close to making both lists, and with the second list I had to think long and hard before leaving off "Never Before and Never Again," with its crazy visuals of Kermit/Piggy's imagined courtship, and "I'm Number One," with the great puppetry in Constantine's dance number with Ricky Gervais.

    Just a little food for thought, gang - it's one thing to enjoy a song for its music alone and quite another to enjoy it for its presentation in a movie, Muppety or otherwise.

    I really can't chose from MMW... I really liked all the songs in that one. There's no song on the level of Man or Muppet, but on the other hand, no song nearly as weak as "Me Party."

    But I'd have to go with Maybe favorite I'll get you what you Want and Least Favorite, God I Hope I get It (with the understanding that it was a throwaway bit to give the prison show subplot some development).

    For MMW, even though I really didn't enjoy it, I would probably say We're Doing a Sequel is my favorite.

    I won't get into worst, I've already said enough about this film, lol. ;)

    Hey look, the next time you're disapointed in a movie I'll let you rant as much as you want. :D

    Hey, even I managed to like Naptime and The Witch is in the House from that...thing I shall not name.

    As much as the lyrics to The Witch are actually pretty disturbing for a Muppet Movie.

    :sleep: "they're pretty disturbing for a Saw movie!"
