OK GO And The Muppets – Need We Say More?
From the musical tribute, Muppets: The Green Album, which is in stores now, OK Go and The Muppets have teamed up to create the music video for the “Muppet Show Theme Song.” Watch the newest OK Go music video below!
The song, written by Jim Henson and Sam Pottle, opened and closed “The Muppet Show” for five seasons in the UK and US, from 1976-1981. Says singer Damian Kulash, “I’m so excited about working with the Muppets that I can hardly sleep. Collaborating with your idols is a huge thrill no matter what, but when your idols are fictional characters it seems downright impossible. The 10-year-old me was pretty good at imagining outrageous futures, but this surpasses even his capacities.”
Kermit the Frog chimes in, “The Muppets have performed this song lots of times, but not like this. OK Go never does anything the way you’d expect it. Damian, Tim, Dan and Andy like to mix things up and get a little loopy. I think they were Muppets in a previous lifetime.”
