    While we're talking about Beatles songs, "Ticket to Ride" would be a good song for Gobo and Wembley to sing together. On my dad's iPod, I heard Jim Croce's "It Doesn't Have to be that way" and I thought that would be a good song for Gobo to sing.

    Bwhahahaha! You're a genius, vettech28! I researched for "It Doesn't Have To be That Way and it is more like a Christmas song. Other than that, you have very good observations of what you want the Fraggles to sing. Great job!

    Wow! Actually, vettech, I hadn't heard "It Doesn't Have to be That Way" before but I looked it up and I can see why you chose Gobo for this song. They have that same nasal quality (That sounds like it's not a compliment, but it is!) It's sort of Cat Stevensy though my very first impression of this song was.....
    Glenn Yarborough's little ditty for The Hobbit. *snerks* The man that swallowed a lamb....In case you haven't had the pleasure...Oh please, allow me.

    Isn't it great!?And isn't it the perfect blend of introspection, poetry and serenity that Mokey does best!?

    Once again, maybe not all the lyrics work here but some of them as well as the imagery work pretty well for Red. The tune alone though, stands out as a good one for her...
    To which song am I referring, you might ask? As If By Magic by LaRoux. If you haven't seen the video....DO so. Marvel at her outrageous cupie doll hair and phenomenally large feet. Oh yeah and the song's pretty great too.

    Also, the Robots In Disguise song Turn It Up has a decidedly 'Other Fraggles' feel to it. All that is needed is the robotic HA-HA-HA...HEE-HEE-HEE-HO-HO-HO. Go Beige!

    I always thought that any song by James Taylor would be a good fit for Gobo like "Fire and Rain" or "You can close your eyes" with the other fraggles singing in harmony with him in other song by James Taylor.

    Okay! I am spilling it right now! I am a Beatles fan and I had this dream that Gobo Fraggle and Floyd were singing, "Blackbird" in a nice place. So, I thought the song Blackbird would probably fit nicely for Gobo maybe.

    Howe about Eric Carmen's All By Myself? I could imgine Wembley singing this song whenever he's alone. I understand nobody knows who Eric Carmen is, but I thought this song would fit perfect for Wembley than other Fraggles.

    *Bumping the thread... again.

    Has anyone heard this song before? That inckludes you too, Plaid Fraggle.

    The Beatles are awesome for the fraggles in general, but I was thinking, "let it be," for either Boober or Wembley? Despite Boober as pessimistic attitude I think that it would be a good song for him, because in a time of genuine crisis, he can cope very well and tell others to be calm, and Wembley seem like a good fit because it's such a hopeful song and he's an eternal optimist. Plus both of their voices would be good with it.

    This may sound obvious you guys but I was thinking of Red, Gobo, and Wembley singing Wooly Bully. Oh they would be screaming. Otherwise, it's a blues song.

    I think that Wembley would sing "Bein' Green", he is a light shade of green after all. And because Wembley is known for singing rather silly songs, I always thought that he would be a good choice to sing "One Banana" from Sesame Street with Gobo and Boober singing backup. It's pretty obvious why, all he wears is banana tree shirts.
