Favorite Fraggle Song

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Sir Didymus, Sep 8, 2002.

    My personal favorites:

    "Dum of a Son of a Gun"--Jerry and Richard's characters always did interact well together.

    "I Sniff The Rose"--now what if Gonzo sang that song dressed as a gypsy lady? (Of course, Boober AND the Old Gypsy Lady would run him offstage...)

    I always thought the "Chariots of Fire" spoof at the end of "Wembley and the Great Race" was kind of cool.

    "Do It On My Own"--you go, Karen!

    "The Beetle Song"

    i have a total of 123 of the songs on mp3...that's all i could find before audiogalaxy went to pay only...i love all of them. my favorites though would have to be shine on me, petals of the rose, goodbye goodbye, and keep on smiling! it's virtually impossible to pick one favorite. they are all amazing. all music should be like this.

    Hey Getup,
    I have Shine on Me, and Keep on Smiling too! I have about 90 of the songs. I have em' all on cd. I just downloaded a new one called "Take it Away" by Boober, and that is my new favorite! Lol! It's hard to pick just one.

    It's hard to say which one I like best, because I find that much of the songwriting is a bit poorly done. For example, I can't get the meaning at all of the song "Catch the Tail By The Tiger". :confused:

    But here's what I like:

    SHINE ON US NOW (MOON GREETING) - It sounds like a warm campfire song.
    THERE'S A RHYTHM - A great Christmas carol and a great way to end "The Bells of Fraggle Rock".
    DO YOU WANT IT? - That Mean Genie sure knows how to stage a rock concert.
    I'M THE ONE THAT WON - What better way to establish an episode with a game song.
    THE FRAGGLE CAVE THEME / WHAT A FUNNY WORLD IT IS - These two have that 80s flavor that can't be described.
    THE GOOD TIME GOOMBAH SOUP - Check out Junior's moves. What a crack-up. :D

    Peace out,
    G Man

    PS. Can anyone please hook me up with "All Around The World" in mp3 format? I've never heard it before. And what exactly was it used on, besides the single?

    Here's what I managed to transcribe from the dull-quality mp3 I have. It's amazing how much fun you can have with colors, huh? :) BTW, I don't know what they're singing in the background between the first two lines in Chorus B.

    AROUND THE UNIVERSE
    Performed By Travelling Matt, Gobo, Red, Wembley, and backing singers

    From Outer Space, it's very clear to me
    I got another card from Uncle Matt
    A Fraggle must go to meet his destiny
    I wish I could be as brave as that
    You're as crazy as your Uncle Matt!

    Chorus A
    Around the universe
    Exploring every mile
    My mind doesn't turn back to Fraggle Rock
    I'm marching on with a smile


    Chorus B
    All around the world
    There is a better way
    We're lucky to live here in Fraggle Rock
    We don't need to be out in space

    It's hard to believe that when I look around
    I wonder what it's like in Outer Space?
    A culture like ours is nowhere to be found
    What's it like to be in another place?
    Does he ever see a friendly face?

    Chorus A and B

    Gobo, my boy, there's so much to explore
    One of these days I'll do the same
    Follow the light and make it through that door
    It's hard to believe you're as dumb as that
    I'm as crazy as my Uncle Matt

    Chorus A (Gobo sings along w/ Matt)
    Around the universe
    Exploring every mile

    Your/My mind doesn't turn back to Fraggle Rock
    You're/I'm marching on with a smile

    Chorus B

    I also like "I can chase the wind" by Red, and "Home" by philo and gunge. It is really impossible to pick just one.

    Oh, really? Can you share it? :D

    Kim - She can share it! And will even!! :D She passed it on to me, so I'm sure she'll pass it on to you. If she can't for some reason, IM me, I'll send it to you.

    DramaQueen - Its only an insult in that I view you as the generic high school girl who remembers Muppets as a child and somehow stumbled across MC while looking for pictures of Fraggles to paste on your binders to show all your little friends. I'm sure the words "OH MY GOSH! I REMEMBER MUPPET BABIES!!!" have crossed your lips also, another possible reason for your presence in this forum. So, take that however you feel it should be taken.

    Thanks to the G-Man for posting the "Around the Universe" lyrics. Every time I am in this thread I play the song and read along with the post. Very cool indeed. :)
