    :batty: So here I was listing to Christmas music. And The Twelve days of Christmas came on, and I thought wouldn't it be funny to hear The Count go "FIVE, FIVE GOLDEN RINGS AH HA HA HA!" What other songs, from the real world do you think the count would like? I think he'd also enjoy In The Year 2525.

    Let Her Dance / The Count, Ever-Fresh, Ever-Cool, Ever-Joyful

    I thought about this, it is a great idea. Then I thought of this song...I don't know the Count personally, but I think he would jump in on this pretty quickly:

    Although it has no counting (I think!) it has plenty to make the Count hyperactivate :


    1-2-3-4-5 ex-cellent mods! :batty:

    Little Anthony and the Imperials

    In a quieter mood, I can certainly imagine the Count listening to Hurt So Bad


    I can even picture him hanging out with them. He is a big-hearted count.

    There's a song called "19" by Paul Hardcastle.But it's about Vietnam & how old the average soldier was .
    We also have "1999" by Prince
    And "99 Luftballoons" by Nena(both English & German versions)
    One more:"The 10 Commandments Of Love" (it's an oldies song)

    Happy Count with a straw hat on listening to Dottie West

    Not for the lyrics but for the song, I think the Count would like
    Country Sunshine...this is some fairly serious country music, it may not be for everyone....

    How about "Eight Little Notes" (which Rowlf once sang on The Muppet Show)?

    "That's eight. Eight vonderful little notes! Thank you for creating them, Mr. Beethoven! Ah-ah-ah-ah!" :batty:

    My sister showed me a Vocaloid song where one of them sings all the digits of Pi... oh yeah, he'd rather like that one.

    And if 50 Ways to leave your Lover had 50 actual ways to it, he'd like it a LOT more.

    Since it first came out, i always imagined The Count would be ecstatic with Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" counting all the "Eddie are you okay?"'s. And instead of just buying the single, he should get the whole album to count all the "whoo"'s.

    1000 Beautiful Things by Annie Lennox.

    "It's a Sin" by Pet Shop Boys always reminded me of The Count. Thunderclaps, organ riff that sounds like the kind you hear on a lot of his classic songs and even a countdown.

    Another song that always gave me major Count vibes was Eurythmics' Doubleplusgood which is from the 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother) album which they made for Michael Radford's film version of Orwell's 1984. The end of the song has Annie doing a ten to one countdown that never reaches the end because it keeps starting over in the middle - and in parts Annie sounds like The Count having one of his fits of counting ecstacy ("TEN! TEN! Ten nine eight...TEN TEN!") Definately a fun song for Muppet fans to check out just because she ends up sounding so much like she's doing a Count impression without trying to! (Similarly, there are parts during "Sexcrime 1984" where her adlibs sound like she's doing a Daffy Duck impersonation)

    ...and no matter HOW many times i watch Muppet Family Christmas, i'm always so sure that THIS time when i watch, during the big carol sing that when Fozzie sings "I'll be home for Christmas, you can count on me" the Count will pop up shouting "One, Two Bears! Ah ha ha...oh, excuse me")

    There's also "God's Top Ten" by INXS

    and "Eight Days A Week" by The Beatles

    And of course, I'm sure The Count would love "Rock Around the Clock" and the "Happy Days" theme song for that matter (since he can count days of the week in that song- and hey, educate the kids on counting and days of the week at the same time! It'd be pretty fitting too since both Richie and Fonize have made appearances on Sesame Street before.):):batty:

    A thousand miles
    Five Thousand miles

    Those were just the first two that popped into my head. Can't think of any more at the moment. But this is a cool thread.

    I just thought of another one- and another TV show theme song. The theme song to "My Two Dads" -
    "You can count on me- no matter what you do, you can count on me.....":batty::)

    Agreed, Jazzy, but I'm not sure he'd like the youtube video...
