A few Muppet mash ups

muppetsRight up there with the themes to Charles in Charge and The Facts of Life on the list of songs that are always stuck in my head is that catchy "Mahna Mahna" Muppet ditty. Somebody has created a few musical mash ups by mixing "Mahna Mahna" with some modern tunes, including a song by Kanye West, and that easy listening staple, "Walking in Memphis." Check them out here, along with a few other Muppet and Sesame Street mash ups. The Kanye West track is pretty catchy, and I have to say this new version of "Walking in Memphis" is actually an improvement on the original. Maybe that's because I've never actually walked in Memphis, with my feet ten feet off of Beale. I assume the song is refering to Howard Beale, Peter Finch's character in the movie Network.

Ah, but what's odd is the song *really* meant the character of Howard Beale and not the street. It had to do with this crazed singer who was obsessed with Beale, so Beale took out a restraining order which required the crazy singer to stay no less than 10 feet away. And so this singer dude, who happened to also be obsessed with Elvis, follows Howard Beale all over Memphis, staying exactly 10 feet away and giving him a bad case of the willies and...oops, time for my medicine!

Come on, if your music history didn't know what Beale Street was, a little google action should have cleared it up.
