Editors’ Notes

This instantly likeable compilation features modern-rock acts playing old-school Muppet songs. OK Go’s take on “The Muppet Show Theme Song” opens with an electro-indie reworking that’s so hip it begs for Kermit the Frog to be fitted with a pair of skinny jeans. Weezer sticks closer to the original blueprint with an endearing cover of “The Rainbow Connection” featuring guest vocals by Paramore’s Hayley Williams. And although it would have made perfect sense for Menomena to cover “Mahna Mahna,” the Fray pull it off replete with Isaac Slade singing a spot-on impersonation of beatnik Muppet, Bip Bippadotta. My Morning Jacket delivers the standout track with a beautifully rootsy rendition of “Our World” from Jim Henson’s 1977 adaptation of the Russell Hoban storybook Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. Other gems include Andrew Bird’s sleepy version of “Bein’ Green” and Rachael Yamagata turning Gonzo’s “I’m Going to Go Back There Someday” into an avant-orchestral lullaby.

Customer Reviews

Muppet fan

The OK Go version of the show's theme song has to be one of the worst songs I have ever listened to. Sounds like an old vinyl record being played on low speed.

Muppets <3

The muppets are the best! awesome music! <3 gotta buy the album and see the movie that will come out soon!

A different side...

Many of these songs don't really fit the type of artist/band's style that is singing them. It's nice to see a different side of some of these bands/artists, and it's also nice too see a different personality of these songs when covered. It's a nice album. They should make more like it!
