    We've had a favorite episodes thread, how about favorite songs? I like the opening theme, "Ragtime Queen", and "Fraggle Rock Rock."

    I'm gonna have to go with Ragtime Queen, or any song Mokey has for that matter. Most of them are filled with pure emotion and the fact she has an angelic voice seals the deal. :coy:
    I like the Knitting Song the Doozers sang in the Radish Famine episode. Honestly, that's the most productive thing next to building? :zany:

    I adore "Beetle Song" from I Want to Be You! It's cute yet elaborate!:excited:

    Anything by Mokey or Cantus, especially "Let Me be Your Song", "Ragtime Queen", or "Music Makes Us Real".

    I don't know about you, but I get "Dixie Wailin" stuck in my head at least twice a day. I want it played at my funeral! Ha.. poor Boober. His own funeral dirge ruined.

    Catch A Tail By The Tiger :D I love sayings, and the fact that something like them from the human world could have gotten all the way down to Fraggle Rock and mixed up into a song that's even deeper is so emotional ;.;
    I also love It Makes You Cry and of course Children Of Tomorrow :).
    For Mokey songs, Why? and The Joy are my favorites...

    I forgot all about Why. That one brings me to tears of joy, it's so beautiful. Not to mention it makes one think and wonder.

    I can never thingk of one favorite song but I think of favorite songs in categories

    Favorite Boober song: Gypsy Song
    Favorite Mokey Song: Time to Live as One
    Favorite Wembley song: Pukka pukka pukka pukka sueetily boink
    Favorite Red song: Tie between Chase the Wind and The Wind and the Pond and the Moon and Me
    Favorite Gobo song: tie between I knew my name and Only way home.

    One thing I like about the Fragg;e Rock songs is sometimes I get flak for likeing "a kids show" (which quite frankly I highly disagree with) but many of the songs at the very least are really good if you want to get technical about it. Even if you don't, they have some great sounds. I was thinking about "The Wind and the Pond and the Moon and Me" and it brought this feeling about it that reminded me of when I was a kid and would just get lost in whatever world I could think of. Granted I still do that but that was just the feeling it had with it.

    I'll post more when I think of it.

    I don't have all of the songs, sadly. I have the three CDs, but that's only about a third of the songs. I found a website that had a lot of 'em for download, but the quality was painfully poor. So, here are my playlist favorites, in no particular order, with my top faves boldfaced:

    Let Me Be Your Song - I love hearing Henson's voice singing this song.
    Pukka Pukka Pukka Squeetily Boink - ridiculously fun and catchy.
    There's a Lot I Want to Know - I love Gilbert & Sullivan-esque patter songs. I have a huge vocabulary, and even I had to look up some of the lyrics.
    Here to There - This just makes me smile, especially when I hear it in stereo. Sounds like Wembley's bouncing back and forth across the room.
    Party Hard (Who Knows What You See) - Boober & Sidebottom's duet. That's win right there, but it's also about coming to terms with yourself.
    Brave Boy, Jump Up - I'd never admit boogieing to this song in the privacy of my own home. Never ever.
    Muck and Goo - Another fun, silly song. I've been known to sing this to myself while waiting for files to upload or the microwave to finish.
    Pass it On - OK, I will admit to boogieing to this one. Wembley's joyful goofiness puts this song over the top for me.

    Party Hard's a fun song because it's Dave singing with imself. Ye aI know hat the actors sing with themselves through different characters but the ones with Sidebottom and Boober are a little different in that sense. And yea, agreeing with you, it's a fun song lyrically.

    I have a lot of favorite songs, but the songs from the original soundtrack hold a special place in my heart. I remember, and my mom agrees, listening to the soundtrack long before I ever saw the show, and I still have my original tape. It's still in pretty good condition too, and I still listen to it occasionally! I have so many great memories with that tape...

    Brave Boy Jump Up I was just dancing to the other day in fact! I always loved the intro when I was a kid, and when I was in my first college I would listen to the song whenever I had a bad day, and it would make me smile.
    Muck and Goo isn't my particular favorite, though I love how everyone unites in singing it. When I was little and had never seen the episode, it used to confuse the heck out of me, so that was fun.
    :smirk: Now I love it because it's so misleading. It's such a goofy and nonsensical song, and when you hear it you think the episode will be the same. Not so much! The Garden Plot is my second favorite episode, right behind Marooned. Yeah, I like the darker ones... Other favorites of mine include in no particular order:

    Ragtime Queen
    A Helping Hand
    Show Me More
    Pucka Pucka
    Sleep By the Light of the Moon
    Sale Away With You
    Let Me Be Your Song
    Once Upon a Time I Knew My Name
    Wise to Myself
    Free and High, (The first time I heard this song, I was confused thinking John Denver had guest-stared on the show!)
    Just a Dream Away
    How Far How Wide How Real
    Dumb of a Son of a Gun, (was on the LP version of the soundtrack, but was left out of the tape and CD releases.)
    So Near but Still so Far
    Hear to There, (I love the drumming!)
    Head the Drumbeat Now
    Doozer Work Song
    Time to Break and Build
    I'll Give My Soul
    It Makes You Cry, (Especially when Boober breaks off, it's heart-breaking!)

    I think that's it, at least until the next poster comes along and reminds me of more, lol.

    Favorite Songs

    Yes, I know what you mean about that song! It's one of my very favorites too... I just love it. :excited:

    It's so hard to choose my favorite songs, so I'll think I'll limit my list to my very favorite...

    • All of the songs from “Doomsday Soup”… it was my first episode to record on VHS, and I watched it soooo many times.

    • “Inny Minny Cow Cow,” “Muck and Goo,” and “Thimble Beetle Song”… these are such fun!

    • “Rollin', Rollin' On”… a great rollicking ensemble

    • “Dixie Wailin”... Yep, I want this at my funeral too!

    • “Sail Away with You,” “Sleep By the Light of the Moon” and “The Friendship Song”… just so pretty

    • “Let Me Be Your Song,” “Music Makes Us Real,” “Lose Your Heart and it’s Found,” and “Ball of Fire,”… gotta have my Cantus songs!

    • “Only Way Home” – Random memory: When I was a senior in college, I came down with the flu. This song was on my Fraggle CD, and for some reason I listened to this song over and over, and over, and over, again.

    • “Follow the Road” and “Good-bye, Good-bye, Just a Rainbow in the Sky”… Manny’s Land of Carpet was the last new episode I saw… (Does that make sense?) I just love that episode…

    • “Sunlight and Shadow” and “Still So Far”… My favorite Mokey songs

    • “Talkin’ Bout Germs” and “It Makes You Cry”… My favorite Boober songs

    • “Chase the Wind” and “There's a Lot I Want to Know”… My favorite Red songs

    • “Fly to the Sky” and “Boss of Yourself”… My favorite Wembley songs

    • “Petals of a Rose,” ““Once Upon a Time I Knew My Name” and “The Me I Wanna Be”… My favorite Gobo songs

    So that’s most of them… I’m sure I’ll think of more later! :coy:

    Heeee! I just saw "A Tune for Two" and I love "Children of Tomorrow" and "Duet for One". Love em love em love em!

    "Follow Me" and "Dump the Stuff Out (Yucky for Sure)" [the latter from "Doomsday Soup"] are the two that come to mind.

    It's been a while since I've sat down to watch Fraggle Rock, to tell you the truth.

    Also, maybe "Ragtime Queen" and "Let Me Be Your Song."

    I have a question about "Workin' Workin" from "30 Minute Work Week" I like the song but does anyone else think it feels for lack of a better work awkward? It's hard to explain but there are some parts in it where I think "that's sounds odd" or "that doesn't sound like it worked." Does anyone else think that or do I need to stop listening to these songs so closely?

    Just a Dream Away - not just because of how beautiful it is but the role it plays in Mudwell's life.
