Where my muppets at?
Thanks to Sarah for this.
I love this song, and after having just seen the video (which I think is awesome), I love the song even more. My wife thinks this song is about George W. Bush. I thought it was about taking one’s small talents and dreaming big, then expressing one’s rage through one’s accomplishments (the standard supervillain origin story, now that I think of it). Maybe it’s a little of both.
I LOVED it when the muppets did this, and it’s now on Cake‘s CD B-Sides and Rarities. Apparently, the song was originally part of the soundtrack of a late 1960s Italian pseudo-documentary about Swedish porn. I think that’s really really funny. Anyway, enjoy this video, and thanks again to Happilykim’s Weblog for this.
One of my all time favorite songs. Thanks to Happilykim’s Weblog for this.
