    I have no idea why I love this song so much; it's just always been my all-time favorite FR song! I love Mokey's mezzo-soprano voice, not to mention the beautiful orchestrations. FR probably had the most expansive music styles for a children's show; I doubt that Big Comfy Couch used synthesizers! So, who else loves this song as much as I do?

    Hey, I like it!

    It always struck me as a weird song title, as I associate "ragtime" with something a wee bit faster in tempo. *shrugs*

    I could see us fans singing it to the Muppets themselves. Rags is a Fragglish puppet, after all. It symbolizes how real just a bunch of fur, feathers, and foam is to us.

    "Ragtime Queen" is probably one of my favorite songs of the whole series. :)

    I do like that song, quite a lot. It's my favorite Mokey song, for sure.

    I think most of my favorites from Fraggle Rock were the peppy, up-tempo songs, but I really like the way Ragtime Queen flows. It's one I have found myself humming more than once.

    Actually, when I first heard that song I didn't like it much at all. I'm not sure why, I just didn't. But it's grown on me since and I quite like it now.

    I like the song as well, it's very pretty and whimsical.
