Your Favourite Muppet Christmas Song?

    I would love to hear from YOU! What is your favourite song from a muppet Christmas production? It can be an original song, or a muppet version of a classic carol! I'm curious as to which ones you guys all like.

    Not sure if it counts, but one of my favourites is Pass It On from Muppet Family Christmas, just because I think it's full of Christmas spirit and I adore the fraggles, and the fact that they are all wearing toques and various winter attire. :smirk:

    Also from MFC, I really love it when they are doing the carol sing, and Robin sings "It's in Every One of Us". Robin is such a deep character and I have always felt very connected with him. There's just something about his little voice singing this song that makes me feel happy and want to sing along.

    On the opposite side, "Marley and Marley" from The Muppet Christmas Carol is probably the coolest scariest christmas-y song ever! :sleep: :boo:

    Well, I got a big kick out of the Muppets' take on The 12 Days of Christmas, of course, with Miss Piggy "hogging" the spotlight on "five golden rings."

    And of course I like hearing Scooter sing "The Peace Carol" with John Denver.

    One of my favorites is "Old Friends, New Friends" from The Christmas Toy. The part Rugby sings to Mew after he's been frozen makes me cry every time. Through his and the other toys' love, they are able to bring their friends back. :)

    Also "When the River Meets the Sea" from Emmet Otter, because it has one of the most inspirational lines I've ever heard: "Patience my brothers, and patience my sons. In that sweet and final hour truth and justice will be done."

    And of course, "The Peace Carol", sung beautifully by Scooter and John Denver (see my signature). ;)

    I love the Electric Mayhem's version of "Little Saint Nick," on the John Denver album.

    And chalk me up as another fan of "The Peace Carol."

    :D ;)

    I really like Bunsen's "Room in Your Heart" from the Muppet Christmas Carol. And there is also a very special place in my heart for "Marley and Marley", because every year when I was little my best friend and I would have sleepovers and watch MCC and sing along with Marley & Marley.

    I've always been touched by Bert and Ernie singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" from Christmas Eve on Sesame Street myself.

    I also really enjoy "It's Christmas Time" from The Great Santa Claus Switch.

    Bert and Ernie singing together, like in "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Silver Bells."

    I also love "Keep Christmas with You" when Linda and the kids surprise Bob with their sign language version of the number. :)

    And every single song on the Sesame Street album "Christmas Sing Along!"

    Wow, really great answers everybody!

    I do not have the John Denver soundtracks so I have not heard the Peace Carol.

    However, someone mentioned When the River meets the Sea... I can't believe I forgot to mention it. I love that one, it's so spiritual and just a really great song.

    The John Denver CD is on BarnesandNoble.com (the 2006 version is the uncut). I highly recommend!

    Yeah I mentioned "When the River Meets the Sea" before. See we do agree on something! ;)

    :grouchy: "I will NOT sing this song!"

    :p :( Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la la la!

    **giggles** That is a great muppet moment.

    Aren't there two John Denver specials though? I don't know anything about it.

    Hahaha, yay! **smiles** We don't disagree out of spite though, which is great. We are just opposites. Like Ernie and Bert!

    There are two JD specials, but only one was for Christmas. As for the Christmas CDs, there was one released in the '90s with some of the songs cut. The 2006 edition has all 13 tracks.

    I should correct that it looks like it's Amazon.com that has the 2006 version (from both Amazon and third party sellers). So that's good!

    Of course, the classic Sesame Street story. "I like gooey Peanut Butter. You may not like gooey Peanut Butter. Still, we like each other." Hehe

    Okay, that clears up alot of confusion! Thank you! I will keep an eye out for the CD as listed in the other thread because apparantly it is worth listening to. :)

    I like a marching band, you like a music box. Which one of us is Ernie and which one is Bert, though? :p :( Hmm... ><

    Now a question. In the MFC carol Sing at the end of the special, what is the name of this song?

    "Old friends, new friends, home with our families
    we'll be together at Christmas,
    snowflakes, sleigh bells, bringing back memories,
    we'll be together at Christmas"

    it goes on but that should be enough to know the name of the song...

    Yeah I'd definitely recommend the CD, it's classic Muppets. As I just corrected on my post above, Amazon.com has the 2006, uncut version of the CD.

    Well when I was a kid I would have said Ernie, because he was my favorite. But now that I'm older I identify more with Bert, lol. So take your pick!

    The song is called "Old Friends, New Friends" and it's originally from The Christmas Toy. :)
