    OoO...I'm glad this thread is back. :) A few more from me:

    Wille Nelson and Merle Haggard - Pancho and Lefty (Floyd doing Willie's part, Janice doing Merle's)

    Bob Dylan - Changing of the Guards (Floyd vocals, Janice and some female Anything Muppets doing the additionals. I guess they'd have to shorten it up a bit, as it is a lengthy song. )

    Pete Townshed - Let My Love Open the Door (Floyd vocals, Janice backup.)

    Skid Row - Youth Gone Wild (oh c'mon, it'd be fun!! Dr. Teeth vocals, Floyd backup.)

    Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio (Floyd vocals with additional Dr. Teeth.)

    Tsunami Bomb - Mushy Love Song (Janice vocals.)

    Sorry if any of those are repeats. Its been a while since this thread was active. :)

    Why, Lily Tomlin and Scred, of course! They did that number on SNL! :p

    Here's some more EM suggestions:

    Turtle Blues-Janis Joplin (during the original recording of this song, you hear a guy who laughs EXACTLY like Floyd!)
    Ring Out Solstice Bells-Jethro Tull
    Magical Mystery Tour-Beatles(if they got their bus back!)
    Rhythm is Gonna Get You-Gloria Estefan (with :flirt: as lead vocal)
    As Good as You've Been to This World-Janis Joplin (the original song has a solo for all the band members, including a trumpet solo perfect for Lips!)
    Soul Man-Blues Brothers :)D and :sing: as Jake and Elwood)
    Hold On-John Lennon (during the original recording, Lennon impersonates Cookie Monster!) maybe another Cookie cameo on TMS?

    And that's all I can think of for now.

    I'd like to hear them do Guns 'n Roses' November Rain, or at least the end of it.

    Here's some more:

    "Werewolves of London", Warren Zevon (Floyd lead vocals, with werewolves in the background)

    "Wild Child", The Doors (Floyd lead vocals)

    "Gloria", Van Morrison (Dr. Teeth lead)

    "Walk", Pantera (Animal lead)

    I always thought that Janice is perfect for singing Big Yellow Taxi (the Jodi Mitchell version). The first time I heard that song, I thought, "This is Janice". The lyrics are perfect for her...

    I think they should have Janice in the middle of an open field surrounded by the band. As Janice sings the song, Anything Muppets begin putting up buildings which she is singing against. These buildings will be made right in front of the other band members, so at the end, Janice would be alone on the screen...

    I've scripted the very same idea for my puppets to perform this in a stage production script I'm writing. I love this song, and I do believe Nate even played it for me once by request! Only in my script there's no band and it's just the singer and involves the museum for trees and the house interior when she goes out of the back door leaving in the taxi. Mine plays off the modern version of the song by the Black Crowes.

    "Locomotive Breath" - Jethro Tull (Vocals Floyd)
    "Minority" - Green Day (The whole band)
    "Sonne" - Rammstein (Vocals Floyd, Dr. Teeth, Janice)
    "Blood Roses" - Tori Amos (Vocals Janice)
    "Return to Innocence" - Enya and Enigma (Vocals Janice)
    "Blue Monday" - Orgy (Vocals Floyd)
    "Freshmen" - Verve Pipe (Vocals Floyd)

    (I plan on using those last two songs for a fanfic, and Minority, actually)

    Aerosmith and Electirc Mayhem!

    Aerosmith, again, I like the name and I like the way you think! I say that the EM should cover any and ALL Aerosmith songs! That'd be GREAT!

    Can you hear Animal singing (?) "Janie's Got A Gun"? :halo:
    OH!!!! I'm crying now that I'm laughing so hard!

    Also, some of you know how much I LOVE Jimmy (Buffett). I know that he and Gonzo did a song together as well as he and Kermie, but could you see EM coveing any of JB's stuff? It's just not them.......but it'd be funny still! I

    how about the band play "smokin" by boston.

    half way through the song, the piano starts playing, and i can picture that as a dr. teeth moment right there.

    got another song that the electric mayhem could play.

    how about "the night" by frankie valli and the four seasons.

    btw, has anyone heard of that song. i just found it today and it's good. actually there's a lot of frankie valli songs that are good that radio stations never play.

    50 ways to leave your lover - Paul Simon
    As a kid I got that mixed up with "Can You Picture That" all the the time. I can so hear Floyd singing 50 ways :sing:

    All of these ideas are good, like Wayward Son and Walk This Way and my personal favorite that they should do: "Lonesome Loser" by Kansas; I think this is a LOT like "Tenderly" that they did on TMS. We need variety on Electric Mayhem songs!
