I saw this yesterday on Pop Candy, and it made my day. Not only because it reminds me of how fun the new Muppet movie looks, but because Coraline and I have been listening to The Muppet Movie soundtrack a lot these days (on vinyl, no less), so I’ve had Muppets on the brain for weeks on end now. (I also subscribe to The Muppets’ YouTube channel.) Ahh — nothing beats picking up your old childhood records from your parents’ house. And, being an OK Go, fan, I particularly enjoy their take on The Muppet Show theme. I think they were a perfect choice to re-imagine this. Muppets: The Green Album comes out today and includes Weezer and Hayley Williams’ cover of “The Rainbow Connection,” among other artists’ takes on classic Muppets tunes. You can listen to it here.
For good measure, here’s the original Muppets theme song.
Good luck getting this out of your head today! 😉
