One of my favorite things about The Muppets movies and TV shows is the music. The songs are always so catchy and fun!
To celebrate the release of The Muppets movie, you may have seen The Green Album that was released a few months ago.
It features great artists such as Weezer, The Fray, My Morning Jacket and OK Go. They are all singing those classic Muppets songs! I’ve been in love with this album since listening to it!
To be released on November 21st is The Muppets movie soundtrack! I can’t wait to get my hands on this!
Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords has four original songs in the Disney film The Muppets, which features special appearances by Feist, Joanna Newsom and Nathan Pacheco.
McKenzie has written “Life’s a Happy Song,” sung byJason Segel, Amy Adams and new Muppet Walter and then as a full cast finale; “Let’s Talk About Me,” whichChris Cooper sings; “Man or Muppet,” a duet between Segel and Walter; and “Me Party,” a collaboration between Adams and Miss Piggy. McKenzie is the film’s music supervisor.
Feist and Mickey Rooney add vocals to “Life’s A Happy Song,” Newsom is guest vocalist on Jim Henson’s “The Muppet Show Theme” and Pacheco, Disney Music Group artist, appears on “Let’s Talk About Me.”
Jeannie Lurie, Aris Archontis and Chen Neeman wrote the film’s other original track, “Pictures in My Head,” which Kermit and the Muppets sing.
Muppets characters cover Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You” and offer a new version of the Muppet classic “Rainbow Connection.” The soundtrack also features 15 interstitials of film dialogue. Christophe Beck did the score for the film that opens Nov. 23.
