    Ah, Barney. You can scope the talent of your kid's show by how many of their "songs" are just public Domain crap with poorly written lyrics forced in there.

    And not even in a Weird Al Yankovic, intentional lyric replacement that makes the song actually better kind of way. Just the "we're making out signature song something we don't have to write and we don't have to pay for" way.

    Lazy, terrible show.

    It's almost a call back to Henson's earlier Sam and Friends type sketches, because it's basically a wacky record that Jim and the rest dressed up with crazy visuals. other than that, it's just a lame Spike Jonez like novelty record that isn't quite all that funny.

    Almost sounds like a random show-stopping song from Courage the Cowardly Dog, particularly the first and last 10 seconds.

    A song I can't stand, I really don't have any idea what it's called. I'm assuming it's called "It's a Good Life" or something to that effect. It has a lot of oooooooooooooing in it. Don't know much about it, I hear it frequently on the radio and in stores. I absolutely cannot stand that song!

    I'm actually kind of grateful to admit I have NO IDEA what "The Christmas Shoes" even is. I tend to avoid anything commerical during the Xmas consumer-worshipping-baal season...

    Can't stand pop. Period. Anything we used to call top 40, now taken over by even worse bands than what was ruling the charts in the mid-'80s. (See earlier comment about Foreigner, heh.) All flash, no class, no talent.

    But the worst offender recently has been that horrible "Put a Ring On It" trash. How the heck did this repetitive, boring, pointless song ever reach popular status?

    I refuse to be the same species as anyone who listens to it willingly.

    Not just "almost", but actually WAS done on Sam & Friends. Believe it or not, the Muppets did improve upon the original. Definately something that was bound to be a UK skit - kinda cute idea but thrown together without much effort to fill that time.

    Yes. That sums up what I've been trying to say for years.

    So, you don't even like michael Jackson then?

    Found that out when I was looking up the author, didn't change comment.

    But yeah, it's like that. Jim found these bizarre records and puppeteered to them, making them a hundred times more memorable. That's why the MOOG music from a Swedish sex documentary became one of the top songs associated with The Muppets.

    It's a good song otherwise I think.
