    Actually, I forgot that I *did* put "Istanbul" in there too. It was sung by Anything Muppets dressed as explorers, and at song's end, Gobo and Travelling Matt would pop out of a hole in the ground a la Bugs Bunny and Gobo would ask "Where are we, anyway?"

    Stryder's picks: Electric Mayhem, The Album

    New Orleans is Sinking -The Tragically Hip - Dr. Teeth sings
    Walking in Memphis - get Floyd to sing
    Big Yellow Taxi - Janice or Floyd sing
    Riders on the Storm - the Doors - Dr Teeth (or switch up verses)
    actually, Light MY Fire would be good too...with verses switched up

    Mother - Pink Floyd - Floyd! (duh)
    No Rain - Blind Melon - Janice
    Nothing Else Matters - Mettalica - Dr Teeth
    Santa Monica - Everclear - Dr Teeth
    While my Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles - Janice
    something by pearl jam - either "Old Lady..." or "Even Flow" by floyd, probably, but maybe dr Teeth
    Angie - Rolling Stones - Floyd
    14 years - Guns N' Roses - Floyd
    One Tin Soldier - Janice and Dr. Teeth switchin up

    there ya go..that'd be an awesome 13 track album...

    "Great Balls Of Fire"--Jerry Lee Lewis (Dr. Teeth on vocals)

    Of course. Good choice.

    And Skeeter-

    Your suggestion of a possible jam session between the Electric Mayhem and the jug-band- I had two ideas for such collaborations:

    "Sweet City Woman"

    and possibly

    "Black Water"

    Actually, Floyd already did that one (partially) during the Linda Carter episode.

    And here's one I can't believe no one's suggested yet...

    "I've Got You, Babe" - Sonny & Cher - Floyd and Janice (who else? I mean, come on!)

  7. The Flying Sheep

    The Flying Sheep Well-Known Member

    The beatles- Lucy in the sky with dimonds- Janice (Love HEr almost as much as Bryan!) on lead
    I'm Free- The Who- Floyd( I Love the F- man!)
    Easy to be Hard- from Hair- Janice
    Frank Mills - see above- see above
    That's Lofe - Flyod or Rowlf
    Stayin Alive- the whole band!
    I got you babe- Flyod and Janice ( AAAAAAAWWWWW)

    Lucy In The Sky With Sky With Diamonds - NO drug songs!!!
    Stayin' Alive - No disco!

    here's another idea -
    Reel Big Fish - "Sellout"
    Mighty Mighty Bosstones - "The Impression That I Get" (sung by Dr. Teeth. plus, it's got a sax solo!)

    they will feature some of the Muppets skateboarding!
    like Gonzo skating on 20 ft vert and Rizzo and Pepe on little boards

    Hey, I had this really great idea...

    "Years ago I came up with an idea in which Gonzo is in charge of the show. He puts on all these weird acts, and people who have just wandered into the theater, and cancels all the regular features. In other words power goes to his head. Recently I thought up a backstage scene in which the Electric Mayhem demands their spot- they're going to do "People Are Strange", so he allows them to go on, at the expense of some other acts: the bagpipe playing octopus, the mushroom figure skaters, and the monster opera singers. Well, you can guess what happens. The Electric Mayhem's act is invaded by all of the above mentioned."

    Just kiddin, David.

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Oh, yeah, forgot to play...

    Just about anything by ZZ Top.

    Cheap Sunglasses is a good one, too (already sounds like Floyd singing it).

    Re: great idea

    I'll get you yet, Kevin! I swear I will! MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Now I have to KEEL you! Wait a sec, keel? How do you do that? Or maybe it's supposed to be keel-haul?

    Good thing you're only kidding. Good thing for you.

    there's this one song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers with bongo drums in it but i forgot the name. I think the mayhem would sound good singing some chili peppers songs.

    here's another good idea. if they do some rhcp songs, they should feature some of the pepper muppets (from that group of vegetables, if there IS some) here are some other ideas for some of my suggestions

    "Woman" - Def Leppard - Sung by Floyd, but the chorus will be sung by, uh, you know!
    They should also feature a puppet of a leopard with his ear right next to the amp, acting like they aren't even playing.

    "Light My Fire" - The Doors - featuring back up singers of muppets that are doors (not the band, the kind you open).

    "All Revved Up With No Place To Go" - Meat Loaf - should have Miss Piggy and Annie Sue and back-up singers.

    "Bat Out Of ****" - Meat Loaf - should also have piggy and annie and, because of that INSANE piano playing, they should zoom in on Dr. Teeth's fingers in the middle of the song. his fingers will be red! at the end of the song, he faints!

    "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" - Meat Loaf - should ALSO have the pig thing

    "Floyd's Garage" (remake of "Joe's Garage") - Frank Zappa - instead of showing them on stage, it should show them in a garage

    "Only Happy When It Rains" - Garbage - sung by Janice - should show them performing out in the rain. at the end of the song, they all get electricuted!

    "Private Idaho" - B-52's - sung by Floyd and Janice. should show them in Idaho. it should also have Beaker singing the intro!

    it would be funny hearing them do the "Irish Drinking Song". they probably can't do it because of all the kids watching though.....

    "Downtown Train", Tom Waits (Floyd lead vocals)
