Songs the Muppets SHOULD have covered...

    Sometimes I hear a song and imagine what it might be like if performed on The Muppet Show. I can really see/hear an Electric Mayhem version of Guns 'n' Roses' 'Welcome to the Jungle', performed in, of course, a jungle. With Dr Teeth singing and the piece ending with a screen full of apes, lions, snakes, etc etc.

    Anyone else got any Muppet fantasy cover versions?

    Well, being the big musical theater nerd that I am, I always loved it when the Muppets sang showtunes, and I sometimes wonder what it would be like for them to sing modern musical tunes. Like Piggy singing Popular from Wicked? It would be priceless.

    Since I'm a sap and LOVE "We Got Us" I'd like to hear the cast sing "That's What Friends Are For" or Steve Whitmire's Kermit sing Rainbow "ConnectioN"

    I'd really like to see the muppets perform "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me". The way I picture it going is have two muppets sing it while riding a motorcycle with one of them in a side car.

    Dude, that WOULD be sweet! What about Randy Newman's "Mama Told Me Not to Come"? That would be most excellent sung by Dr. Teeth:D

    Let's see, tunes that the Muppets should have covered...well, here's two, at least.

    "Walk of Life," by Dire Straits. I can really picture the Mayhem covering that.
    "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby.

    Hmm, what about "Bette Davis Eyes," by Kim Carnes?

    I think I can also see the Mayhem doing "Unchain My Heart."

    Did they, really?

    Well...in that case, what about "Weird Science" by Oingo Boingo? Or "Dead Man's Party?"
