    Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Eric Idle
    A whatnot walks along the street, with all sorts of bad things happening to it, while it sings this song.
    But please, bleep out "Life's a piece of s***"

    Why not have Eric Idle as the guest star singing it.

    John Cleese went on before, why not Eric Idle?

    I know they did this one already on the Muppet Show but I'd LOVE either Floyd and Janice or Kermit and Miss Piggy (with the roles switched) to sing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" (Miss Piggy sang that with Rudolf Nureyev on his episode.

    In one of my outlines I actually have Bobby Benson's Baby Band singing this.

    Wish I'd thought of that they would sound much better with that song than Kermit.

    More ideas.....Musicals Edition!

    All Falls Down (from Chaplin: The Musical)- Miss Piggy (I haven't seen the musical yet, and I'm going to see it this Saturday, but I'm absolutely in LOVE with this song (I haven't heard the whole thing, as I watched from a video, but it sounds really cool). This song screams Miss Piggy!)

    This World Will Remember Us (from Bonnie and Clyde)- Janice and Floyd, as Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow (Yes...I can see this. :flirt::sing: I always wanted to see these two take on something different, like a Bonnie and Clyde-esque situation. A shame this show closed so soon....:sympathy:)

    We're In The Money (from 42nd Street)- sung by the entire cast, but lead by either Scooter or Robin (More Scooter, but I could see Robin being daring enough to lead off).

    Maybe This Time (from Cabaret)- Miss Piggy, in another attempt to woo Kermit

    Think of Me (from Phantom of The Opera)- Annie Sue, replacing Miss Piggy after Miss Piggy gets a "frog in her throat" and is unable to sing.

    Special To Me (from Phantom of The Paradise (*Coincidental, yes?))- Janice accompanied by the rest of the Electric Mayhem (I would love Janice to sing this!!)

    A Lovely Night (from Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella)- Miss Piggy, Janice, Annie Sue and Camilla

    A Little Fall Of Rain (from Les Miserables)- Scooter and Annie Sue (Don't ask....I just thought these two would be the best choice for this song. Floyd and Janice would work too, but something about picturing Scooter and Annie Sue singing this just makes this sound a little better)

    Death Is Just Around The Corner (from The Addams Family Musical)- Uncle Deadly and a chorus line of random ghosts and zombies (Do I smell a kick line?)

    The Corrupt Bargain (from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson)- Lead by The Female Singers (let's give these ladies a moment in the limelight!) and a bunch of whatnot versions of John Calhoun, John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, and others mentioned in the song. Rowlf (or Dr. Teeth, whichever one makes more sense) is on piano and Animal on drums, accompanying this number. (Let's give the good viewers some good old education here.......... (care to view?)

    Rowlf singing and playing the piano 'Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma' with each verse more crazy things happen in the background.

    A few ideas from each decade since the Muppet Show:
    • "After the Love is Gone" by Earth, Wind and Fire: Floyd on vocals, Electric Mayhem on backup.
    • "Thriller" by Michael Jackson: Scooter wearing the red jacket, surrounded by Muppet Monsters. Uncle Deadly does Vincent Price's "rap" at the end.
    • "Good Riddance (The Time of Your Life)" by Green Day: Kermit plays the banjo, Fozzie strums a ukelele, Scooter has an acoustic guitar, and Floyd has an upright bass. They sing to Robin as he falls asleep.
    • "Hey Soul Sister" by Train: Gonzo sings to Camilla as they head out to town.
    • BONUS: An original song: a sequel to the hilarious "Train To Morrow" song from Season 1 of the Muppet Show. It would be great if that were to happen. Actually, that just gave me a great idea...check for a new thread soon...

    Just a few more ideas:

    Mockingbird (Carly Simon and James Taylor)- Floyd and Janice, accompanied by the rest of the Electric Mayhem (There's a really cool saxophone part in there for Zoot!), possibly in a situation in the case of "Rockin Robin" (This song was stuck in my head for the past few days and I figured, this is a perfect duet for those two. :sing::flirt: )

    Harper Valley PTA (Jeannie C. Riley)- either Annie Sue or Skeeter, with a bunch of whatnots that represent each character in the song

    (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman (Aretha Franklin)- Miss Piggy, swooning Kermit (Gotta love this couple....:):mad:)

    She's Got You (Patsy Cline)- Annie Sue, in a situation involving her crush on Link Hogthrob but he loves another woman (Yup. Definitely an Annie Sue song.)

    Flashdance (What A Feeling) (Irene Cara)- Miss Piggy or Janice (Leaning more towards Miss Piggy, but I guess Janice could work too.) Bring in the chair and the water!

    Few more ideas..........
    Almost Paradise (Love Theme from "Footloose") (Mike Reno and Ann Wilson)- sung by Floyd and Janice (These two immediately sprang into my mind for this one. :sing::flirt: However, I wouldn't mind if I saw Kermit and Miss Piggy do this song also.)

    Hit The Road, Jack (Ray Charles)- sung by Dr. Teeth or Rowlf, with back up from the Female Singers (http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/The_Female_Singers)

    Like A Virgin (Madonna)- sung by Miss Piggy, serenadingly flirting with Kermit (or we could make this funnier and have Spamela Hamderson sing this to Kermit. That would make Miss Piggy VERY VERY JEALOUS.:mad: )

    I Will Always Love You (Whitney Houston)- sung by Gonzo, singing to Camilla (Hooray for GonzoxCamilla!! :concern::cluck:)

    Hungry Like The Wolf (Duran Duran)- sung by a whatnot, who keeps changing into a werewolf when he sees his true love.

    Baby Got Back (Sir Mix-A-Lot)- sung by Pepe (YES! YES! And YES!)

    Cee-Lo Green's "Crazy" sung by Crazy Harry. I'm sure somebody already said it, but it's a good one.

    "No One Lives Forever," by Oingo Boingo, sung by Uncle Deadly with help from the spookier Muppets. OB is actually kind of an early Goth band, so they probably have A LOT of stuff that would be perfect for Uncle Deadly.

    I got one for ya!

    The Gills Brothers singing the 1950's pop song "Sh-Boom" and while they're singing Crazy Harry starts setting off explosions! :crazy:

    If you never heard the song before, here it is.

    That certainly sounds like it would be perfect for the Muppet Show.

    Kermit singing Devo's "Jerking Back and Forth" to Miss Piggy as she chases him through a giant Connect Four display.

    I would like them to do this song. But I can't think of a Muppet that might go with this. I keep vision the Sam & Friends kind.

    Want U Back- A Miss Piggy version. Piggy sitting in a diner in which Kermit and Annie Sue are having a milkshake together, singing this "jealousy" type song.

    So What- (I can totally see Piggy and Pink singing this as a duet wearing awesome rock clothes)

    Gangnam Style- For some strange reason I can see Pepe in this... Lol...
