    I have decided I think it is an awful missed subtle gag that a member of the Electric Mayhem doesn't have the line 'How can I feel the high when I feel so low?'. My favorite EM jokes are the gentle jabs at rock and roll lifestyle.

    That was actually Rowlf's line.

    Yeah i always get confused at that line since Teeth and Rowlf sound so similar...

    Another reason I love the song "The Big House", it reminds me of the song sung by Peggy Lee as Peg backed up by the rest of the dog pound inmates from Lady and The Tramp keeping that fabulous 50's doo-wah sound/vibe.

    My point. Should have been an EM member line.

    It's been said that "I'll Get You What You Want" is a great disco style parody, and I agree to a degree, but I like it partly because it has these wonderful echoes of early-'80s pop songs - particularly Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" and also the likes of Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran and Culture Club. Bret McKenzie's demo version actually feels like it could have been a Top-40 hit (especially in the UK) if it had been released in 1982 or '83.

    Also, while I'm glad Bret didn't go with his original concept (Constantine as Elvis and/or The Big Bopper and/or John Travolta in Grease), that demo actually has some comic value, especially Bret's uncontrollable faux-macho giggling at the end.

    I'd say it's closer to light soul than disco. It kinda reminds me of Lou Rawls's "You'll Never Find" (or whatever that song's called). It has an inherent cheese to it, making it a tacky 1970's lounge number- only better.

    The Original Score album is now available! I'm listening to it right now, and it's wonderful! The only thing that would be better would be if they went back and released Christophe Beck's score for the last movie too...

    I actually have the score from the last film it was up for download a long time ago. Why it wasn't included on the original soundtrack to begin with I'll never know.

    Would you be willing to send files?

    No, but it's no more expensive to purchase than a movie ticket. Give Disney some support! It might encourage them to put out more score albums for movies that wouldn't normally get one!

    Agreed I think it's only 10.00.

    My top 5:
    1. We're doing a Sequel
    2. I'll get you what you want
    3. Macarena
    4.Together Again
    5.Interrogation Song

    Why I chose these as my top 5:
    We're doing a Sequel: I chose this one because it makes a lot of sense.

    I'll get you what you want: It seems like an old late 1970's disco song.

    Macarena:Nice beat and Miss Piggy is amazing in this song.

    Together Again: Well, welcome to 1984 all over again!

    Interrogation Song: It's like an crime scene in a broadway kind of style.

    Why I chose these songs over the following:

    Something so Right: I really felt like it was too fast for me. I wished they would slow it down.

    The Muppet Show Theme (Los Muppets): I understand that they did the Muppet Show Theme, but why let Pepe do the introductions when Kermit did it back in Season one? Besides, he was the host in the first place.

    I'm Number One: Yes, we all understand that Ricky Gervais was awesome in this movie, but I really didn't like Constantine in the movie that much.

    Muppets Most Wanted Score Suite: It's instrumental. Need I say more?

    Moves Like Jagger: I understand that it was a good song, but there are better one that I really like.

    Working in The coal mine: Who in the world in Jermaine Clement? I haven't even heard of this name before.

    The Big House: I feel like Josh Groban ruined the song with the lines "In the Big House you will not survive. When you arrive in the Big House, run for your life!" I feel like Nadya (played by Tina Fey) would have gotten really mad at him.

    There you go. Those are the reasons.

    I just want to point out that in 'We're Doing A Sequel (Demo)', when Bret imitated Rowlf singing,"We can't do any worse than the Godfather III!" he sounded a little bit like Steve would if Steve were to try to perform Rowlf.

    That's just what I noticed.....

    I kind of hear as either Statler or Waldorf performing it.

    I still haven't purchased the score from Muppets Most Wanted for whatever reason I wasn't as drawn to it like the last film. I only maybe like one or two songs on it so it's not really worth forking out 10.00 for.
