It's Not That Easy Being Fabulous

Muppets: The Green Album is the Muppets all grown up and slightly melancholy (perhaps they overdid the existential thing in college). Nonetheless, this is an enjoyable little album with the likes of OK Go, The Fray and Airborne Toxic Event doing their hip takes on classic muppet music. My fave has to be the version of Rainbow Connection by Weezer & Hayley Williams. It sells for $11.29 on Amazon


Post Snark: I always thought It's Not That Easy Being Green would make the best gay disco anthem. It should start out slow and end up with a super fun beat and all the muppets (in rainbow wigs of course) pouring out onto the dance floor. Someone (Lady Gaga, Madonna, Donna Summer, Cyndi Lauper) needs to work on this.
