Muppets - The Green Album

An album of classic Muppets songs covered by indie rock artists … sounds like an idea out of a dorm room bong session. And by that I mean awesome.

I guess with the movie coming out, though, all things Muppets are getting green-lighted. Thus, The Green Album.

Things like this always sound better on paper than they do in practice, but this one’s better than average. My Morning Jacket is reliably good. The Fray doing “Mahna Mahna” is surprisingly delightful.

But this being Grist, I think the way to go is Andrew Bird covering the Kermit classic, “Bein’ Green.” It’s not easy, you know.
