"Jim Henson's Dead" sounds rude, but it is a great song!

    Hey all,
    I just downloaded a great song from WinMX, called "Jim Henson's Dead". Sounds, bad I know. But it is a real touching Jim tribute. Check it out! It's from someone named Stephen Lynch. Alos, BlueFrackle and I also found the full mp3 of "That Old Black Magic" (the Louis Prima Sam and Friends version) on there. So, get searchin! :D

    I just heard it too. To me it doesn't sound like an expression of disrespect for Jim and his creations. You're right, Scoot, it is great.

    Lynch is probably a bigger Muppet fan than his colleagues. We need more original songwriters like him nowadays.

    Jim Henson is dead. What's disrespectful about that? Lynch's intentions are quite the contrary if you were to listen to the song.

    I'm a Steven Lynch fan for the most part, I have two of his CD's and alot of his stuff on my computer. I think he can be hilarious, and although his tunes mostly sound the same he does have a very pretty voice. "Jim Henson's Dead" appears on his CD "A Little Bit Special", it's one of the last tracks and I truely believe it is meant as a tribute to Jim, it is sweet and it is clever, obviously made by someone who knows the Muppets well. The weird thing is its neighbors on the CD and in Steven Lynch's library of songs, some of them include a blasphemous song justifying catholic priests acts of pedophilia, a tale of a man sticking a gerbil up... well you can guess, and a song poking loads of fun at the Special Olympics. It just scares me a little that when I listen to "Jim Henson's Dead", based on some of the insanely insipid tracks, I might be listening to Steven Lynch's sick idea of a joke.

    Yeah i don't know what more embarrassing, admitting i'm a Britney fan (not of her music so much now) or the bit about admiring amazon women from the planet Nebula.

    Anyone wanna join my self help support group ? :rolleyes:

    I told you Sarah - I NEED HELP ! I liked the first song at the time but yeah now it really grates on me. Never really liked any of the other stuff but honestly, does anyone really bother to listen to her music ? It's just a few of her *ahem* outfits that i've admire from afar, i'd really like a lifesize standup but i did use to have a signature graphic of her with a penguin, it looked like she was goosing him ! :eek:

    Um, which support group? The one for gigantor Nubalan amazons, or the one for listening to cheesey late 90's coporate radio prop drivel? ;)
