Hey, who didn’t love the aforementioned tune, or Rainbow Connection, or the Muppets theme? Now imagine them performed by some of the best bands playing these days. It sounds like we are still a few months away, but here’s the track listing for The Green Album to whet your appetite.
- OK Go: “Muppet Show Theme”
- Weezer and Paramore’s Hayley Williams: “Rainbow Connection”
- The Fray: “Mahna Mahna”
- Alkaline Trio: “Moving Right Along”
- My Morning Jacket: “Our World”
- Amy Lee: “Halfway Down the Stairs”
- Sondre Lerche: “Mr. Bassman”
- The Airborne Toxic Event: “Wishing Song”
- Atreyu’s Brandon Saller and Good Charlotte’s Billy Martin: “Night Life”
- Andrew Bird: “Bein’ Green”
- Matt Nathanson: “I Hope That Something Better Comes Along”
- Rachael Yamagata: “I’m Going to Go Back There Someday”
A few thoughts:
- Rainbow Connection, with Weezer and Haley Williams – that’s just cool.
- OK Go playing the theme – nice!
- The Fray doing Mahna Mahna – I’m thinking that’s going to be a fun one
- Sondre Lerche – I just love his voice. It will be very interesting hearing him do this cheerful ditty
- Airborne Toxic Event – Predicting that this will be my favorite.
While you bide your time waiting for the album, I’ll leave you with this wisdom from Kermit: “Time’s fun when you’re having flies.”
