Songs the Muppets SHOULD have covered...

    Lately I've been thinking of some contemporary music I'd really like to hear covered by the Muppets. One song that comes to mind is Exit Music (For a Film) by Radiohead... covered, of course, by the Electic Mayhem. Even though the song's for one singer, vocals could be shared with Dr. Teeth and Floyd. It's a somber, beautiful song that both of them would be well-suited for.

    A whatnot Muppet dressed as a Vampire should sing the song "Young Blood" by The Coasters.

    The song "Twist & Shout" is by The Beatles. They wrote it.

    Actually The Isley Brothers first recorded "Twist & Shout" in 1961 or 1962 before The Beatles recorded it.

    "Glory of Love" could be sung by Peter Cetera (who would have been the guest star of "The Jim Henson Hour") with Solid Foam.

    Weezer songs

    I wanna see Kermit go emo singing "In The Garage." or "The Sweater Song."
    or someone could sing "No One Else," with a monster playing the girl in the song. and when it gets to the "My girl's got eyeballs in the back of her head," the monster will have eyeballs in the back of her head.
