    Munchkin song

    I heard the Munchkin song just now! But it was kind'a over before I could start listeing, if you know what I mean. It took me a moment to think, what song is this? And I scooted across to the computer, and saw it was a Mwoo song!

    Me can't wait for the next one!

    Yeah, the Munchkin song is short, so to speak. ;)

    Let us know what you think of the other tunes when you hear them.

    Just heard, maybe the last minute of "The Witch is in the House" (miss piggy, dr teeth, and electric mayhem) and I think I just might love it. I definately like it, but I'd like to hear the rest before I say for sure that I love it. But I'm telling you, all I can think is "what's happening on screen right now?" I want to see what we see with what we hear. nine more days... nine more days... nine more days... IS IT MWoO YET?!? :mad: (I am so impatient)

    Did the MWoO add affect the playlists? I don't remember hearing the same songs this frequently over the course of a workday before (for example: Danny Boy by Beaker, Animal, and Swedish Chef).
    How many hours of programming is there?
  8. Phillip

    Well there are over 1500 songs in the playlist, six of them are from Oz. Granted the Oz songs are in heavy rotation for the next couple weeks. They will each play about four times a day.

    Concerning how often the other songs repeat it varies from song to song, but it's the same as it has always been. Generally, on the high end a few songs are scheduled to play once every 24 hours while on the low end some play once every 100 hours.

    wow, that seems complicated...

    Anyway, I've heard the rest of "the witch is in the house" now, and I love it. I thought Miss Piggy's voice seemed a little off, but then I heard "Never Before, Never Again" and they sounded a lot alike, so maybe I'm a little off... ok so I'm really a lot off i a lot of ways but I'm rambling again.

    And I'm definately in love with "when I'm with you". It's just so... Muppety! It has a very muppet feel to it. ... I mean it doesn't feel like foam and felt, not that kindof muppet feel, but like... ok I'm really asleep right now, logic is long long gone... even more so than when I'm awake. I think I'm just rambling again now, I'll go... um... pretend my homework is done and ... um... zzzzzzzzzzzz

    I bought the soundtrack at work, Kansas is my personal favorite but they're all good songs. The Munchkin song is over before it starts and is rather dissapointing, that's my favorite song from the original WOO. The Muppet half of the cd is really good too. I like the stair song sung by Robin and of course there's Rainbow Connection. :sing: Overall I'd give the soundtrack 2 thumbs up!
