Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I’ve heard them calling my name. Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it.
It’s something that I’m supposed to be.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
-The Rainbow Connection
Kermit the Frog
The Muppet Movie 1979
I’ve decided to gather a collection of the original songs that were used for the album Muppets: The Green Album. In order as they are listed on the album.
Note: I couldn’t find the video for Wishing Song, but its done on the album by The Airborne Toxic Event.
The Muppet Show Theme song - OKGO
I had to use the Season 5 intro to include the BEST part of the song Statler & Waldorf “Why do we always come here? I guess we’ll never know. Its like a kind of torture, to have to watch the show!!”
The Rainbow Connection - Weezer & Hayley Williams
Mahna Mahna - The Fray
Movin Right Along - Alkaline Trio
This by FAR my favorite track on the Album!
Our World - My Morning Jacket
This is the best I could find of this track. Live action.
Halfway Down the Stairs - Amy Lee
Generally I don’t like Amy Lee, but she sings this quite beautifully.
Mr. Bassman - Sondre Lerche
Night Life - Brandon Saller & Billy Martin
Bein’ Green - Andrew Bird
I Hope that Something Better Comes Along - Matt Nathanson
I’ve never heard of Matt Nathanson before but seriously, voice of an angel.
I’m Going Back there Someday - Rachael Yamagata
The way Rachael Yamagata sings this, gives me chills very magical ending to this album.
