    I don't know if they lost the rights to the songs or whether it was more a question of (paraphrasing)"Hey, hang on a minute. Why pay someone else to use their songs when we could write our own songs and people could buy to hear on record, CD, etc?"

    What about...

    around around around around
    over and under and through
    around around around around
    over and under and through (my door)
    NEAR!
    FAR!
    NEAR!
    (oh, I'm so tired)
    FAR!
    Now look at the record, OH!
    Around around around around
    over the horsey
    under the bed
    and throuh my door
    around around around around
    over and under and through
    Oh! I'm so tired!
    *CLUMP!*

    I like the record version of that song, but even better I like the TV version where the only prop was Old Western doors. I like hearing Frank Oz's comment about Joe Raposo writing that song, how Joe didn't have to do anything clever to show off.

    Wanna know why the record version was never released on CD? If you notice, he mentions that "this record goes around," and tells us to look at the record when he sings 'around'. The kids of today don't even know what a record is, and you can't see the CD going around.

    There are plenty of Sesame recordings on CD that still mention that they're on a record.

    As a matter of fact, the song in question was indeed released on CD. Sesame Street: Best

    Other than "Over, Under, Around and Through" on Sesame Street: Best, I can't think of any more right now, but I know there are some. I'll post here when I think of them which will probably be when I'm driving on Rte 95 N headed for New Hampshire or something :p

    I have the MP3 of "Around, Over, Under & Through" if you would like it.

    Theres the Muppet Show tape one where Staler or Wadlof say "It sounds ok but on a record it doesn't make sence."

    I want all those songs on MP3's as well if anyone have them. I know most r fetured on Records or CD's but I want them on MP3's. Come on Please someone has to have them or they wouldn't feture them on Muppet Radio. Does Phillp have them on MP3's or have them some way to to download them to the Muppet Central site? I want them so bad. Everyone on here either has recordplayers or stuff on MP3's or something. Come on share or let us know where ur getting them.

    .

    also, "This Frog" on Jim Henson: A Sesame Street Celebration, Kermit speaks of the record winding down. He's talking about the original album release that the song appeared on, Aren't You Glad You're You?

    What do you think kids will think when they hear that phrase? They don't even know what a record is. Grover talked about a record going around once, and tells the kids (us) to look at the record when he sings the word "around". How can they do that if it isn't a record? I know that a CD goes around too, but you can't actually see it spinning.

    U don't know what if they might that record and the child listens to it or GrandParents could have a recordplayer and they might listen. I have grand parents who have a RP I used to listen to Christmas songs on that player. I wished as a child i would of had SS records but can't recall having any. But like i was saying the child might know what ones is. We wouldn't know but why would it matter if it says record on CD. There's a cassette I have of some cartoons that says something about an 8 track but and I didn't know what it was but I still listened to it. Didn't bother me. So unless people from SS or who ever has the chance to tell them it wouldn't matter if CD were to have pharsh "Look at the record. Watch it spin around," is not going to confuse the kids because if they don't know what a record is well I don't think there going to go on a rampage saying "Mom I don't know what a record is. I don't want to listen to this CD." And if all those other cassettes that scarecroe has something about the word record on it from the 90's what about kids now adays. What if they don't know what a cassette tape is? R the going to quick making cassette tapes. They prouble didn't even know what a 8 track is but theres still stores that sell old copies of those. I hope I've made my point. SSetta I'm not on anyones side I'm just agreeing w/ Scarecroe because during r time we didn't know what records were either and we ended up listening to records growing up. So if they listen to records and the remember what Grover or whoever says anything about a records on CDs they'll go "Hey I remember this. I used to watch the record when it spins around." Thanks for listening and hope this helps out what Scarecroe said. Have a nice day. :) P.S I just heard the word Record on the The Muppet Show the 25th Anniversary Collection CD. Its the same one on the Muppet hits. Its right after Kermits tap dance song Staler and Woldof: Staler: U know on the show that wasn't funny. Wodlof: Ture True. S. But on a record it dosen't make sence.

    Please help me and my muppet mad friend

    Hi there! I am desperately searching for a song from "Grover sings the Blues" called "Has anybody seen my dog?". I'm told that you can't buy it anymore and I have been searching for 2 years now!! It would make my friend very happy if we could get hold of this. She is about to leave and I'm worried that I'll never get the chance. I tried to download your MP3 but it didn't work. Hope you can help me......

    To recapp... is this song about Grover as a featured soloist? Or can he sing in a group?

    I'm going to say soloist, since it narrows it down...
