I mean there are ton of folks that would have done a much better job. Bobby McFerrin, The Neptunes and even Trent Reznor would have been awesome. It seems the kids like these OK Go guys, so their version of The Muppets theme is what we are stuck with.
The full Green Album can be streamed on NPR and now we have an official video OK Go’s version of the Muppets theme.
Enjoy…It’s still the Muppets after all.
In advance of the Muppets movie coming out this fall, an album has been put together where artists from today cover some of the most beloved songs that have played over the years on the show and the movies.
Some of the covers are pretty interesting and some are just weird. Weezer does a pretty good job with ‘Rainbow Connection‘ and the Fray do Mahna Mahna very well. OK GO‘s version of the Muppet theme is a bit wonky for me however it is still a bit of a thrill to heard these songs re-interpreted for youth today.
Head over to NPR where you can stream the whole album. It is definitely worth the time and is a great listen.
thanks to @randeepk for the heads-up.
