together we'll nab it

Kermit and Fozzie -- Movin' Right Along
What could be better than two Muppets singing a song about friendship? I mean aside from singing it with witty lighthearted lyrics, to the accompaniment of a banjo and a string section?
[The Muppet Movie soundtrack], if you have $100 you didn't know what to spend on. Or pick the track up on this comp. Both of them also have "Can You Picture That?" so you're sure to have some fun.

Listening to this soundtrack again, I see that I missed my chance--Dr. Teeth belonged after Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and before something by Dr. John.

The Bran Flakes sampled this, with good results. The Gramophone posted that track in April '04, so I won't crank it up here again.


I keep forgetting to mention Girish's site--or, more specifically, his comments sections. Don't get me wrong; his posts are good--both the ones about movies and the ones about music--but there's something about the comments that is even more impressive. It's not just that the posts all get many more comments than nearly any post at any mp3blog (though they do); it's that the people posting clearly have actually thought about what other people have said and what might be meant by it. It's not uncommon to see a point, a rebuttal, a clarification, a question, a realization. That sort of interaction seems somewhat rare online, oddly enough, where interaction is as effortless as typing and as quick as an electron. In any case, Girish's site makes for some consistently enjoyable reading and I'm glad it's out there.

Another favorite, whenever they pop up: Girish's conversations with his mother. She sounds like a lovely lady.

This post is by way of a shoutout to Mr. X. Hello. Getting tired of Rhode Island. end trasmission.

then come one out to where the air is fresh and the sky is large...and where vinyl is still a novelty.


Hey thanks, Tuwa!
And thank you for the nice package in the mail too! So kind of you...

I'm glad you like it, Girish. Too bad it's not more readily available (one that's even less readily available, that I'd love to get my hands on--Brainfreeze Breaks, which compiles all the 45s used in the Brainfreeze mix).
