AV: Talking Heads meet Talking Puppets. MUPPETS!

In keeping with this morning's Talking Heads theme, here is a hilarious video of the Muppets, fronted by Kermit the Frog, doing a cover of "Once In A Lifetime", the Talking Heads' biggest hit single. Pretty awesome. Kermit does a pretty good David Byrne impression, although the suit is a little too small. Enjoy.

For the music side of things, here are three amazing muppets-influenced tunes. The first is "Rainbow Connection", most famously sung by Kermit el Frog. This is a different version - I'm not sure who's singing, but at the same time, I'm not sure it matters. The song is dope to the max.

Secondly, Michael Franti and Spearhead give a live performance at All Good Music Festival back in 2007. It's a live combo of Sublime's "What I Got", the Sesame Street Theme Song, "C is for Cookie", and Kermit's "Rainbow Connection", and it's pretty awesome. Hilariously, Franti mixes up like half of the words of "What I Got". I thought everybody learned all the lyrics to that song in like 5th grade...

And, if that weren't enough, we've also got...Menomena. Whatever that means.

The question is, What is a Menomena?
The question is, Who cares?
I could watch that video on loop for days.
