Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #178 – “Pictures in My Head,” from The Muppets
178. “Pictures in My Head,” from The Muppets
Ah, our first Muppet song. This was a movie we were all charmed by when it came out and just sort of forgot about. There are a couple of good songs from this movie (though the only one that was nominated/won was “Man or Muppet,” which is not one of the better ones).
This one was their “Rainbow Connection,” which is Kermit looking back longingly on the history of the Muppets and hoping they’re not gone forever. It’s a nice little song that fits within the film, though admittedly it owes a lot to “Rainbow Connection.”
