Favourite Muppet-song ever

Discussion in 'Classic Muppets' started by BorkBork, Jul 14, 2002.

  1. Im with you on those two for sure, good call. The 2nd took me forever to find, its a pretty scarce tune. I rediscovered it recently ... I had totally forgot about this song and just happened to stumble across it while listening to muppet radio a little while back.

    Gotta add Monster in the Mirror to my list, aswell as the Dark Crystal soundtrack.

    When I was little I used to wish "I don't want to live on the moon" would play every time i watched Sesame Street.

    My favorites are two Miss Piggy greats:

    Never Before, Never Again
    and the water one in TGMC (how does that go again? i'm blanking out! jeez!)

    Also, Love Led Us Here, somehow it just seems so moving

    Another song I like is "I'm Gonna Always Love You" from MTM simply for the line "and im gonna be a movie star.."

    Ugh. So many to choose from.

    Here are five that are favorites, but not necessarily my All Time Favorites:

    Bein' Green
    Sesame Street Theme
    I Don't Want To Live On The Moon
    I'm Going To Go Back There Someday

    Tough Call. I've got more than 30 Muppet and Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock CDs, and listen to them all fairly frequently--I can't pick favorites--that's like picking a favorite child!

    Although my favorite child right now is Miles--slept 8 hours last night.

    GOOD boy.

    My favorite song from The Muppet Show is one that I can't believe nobody has mentioned yet. My favorite is...

    Scooter-Six-String Orchestra

    This is such a great song. It is extremely catchy and has just a great feel to it. Other favorites of mine are:

    Robin-Halfway Down The Stairs
    Gonzo-Workin' At The Carwash Blues
    Gonzo-Won't Somebody Dance With Me
    Link, Fozzie, Gonzo, Scooter and Robin-Nothing Like A Sailor's Life
    Brooke Shields and The Muppets-I'm Falling
    Rowlf-The Cat Came Back
    There's also a song I don't know the name of but it's all piano. It starts out Rowlf is playing the song and then Fozzie comes up and they play together. Plus, there's some great lines in the skit.

    There's also a ton more I can't think of right now.

    I MENTIONED SIX STRING ORCHESTRA! Nobody listens to Jackie....lol maybe I mentioned it in another thread...

    I mentioned this a while ago, but if you want the original version of "Six-String Orchestra", it was performed by Harry Chapin on a CD entitled "Verities & Balderdash", and is still in print. I can see why Jim Henson wanted to use this song for "The Muppet Show". Also, the original version of "Workin' At The Car Wash Blues" is on Jim Croce's "best of" CD, entitled "Photographs & Memories".

    Gonzo is that Fozzie and Rowlf song Hi Diddly Dee. That's the only one I can think of. I also like Animal sings Gershwin:)

    I like Angus McGonagall and Mark Hamill gargaling Gershwin together. If it even counts as a song that is!
