Bad Idea: Feist, Newsom do The Muppets

 

Bah. Humbug.

 

By The Grinch

 

No, believe it or not, some of us do NOT adore the Muppets.
Or Sesame Street. Or friggin’ hairy
little puppets, for that matter. Especially when paired up with otherwise
sentient musicians who should know better, and instead bear down on their own
music.

 

But there you have it… not everyone has good taste. Not even
Joanna Newsom and Feist, who have contributed to the soundtrack of The Muppets film. You can listen “Muppet
Show Theme” featuring vocals from Newsom at Stereogum, or “Life’s A Happy Song,” with Feist, below:

 

 

 

 

Oh, and btw, in case you were wondering – nope, we have not
reserved our tickets for the film via Fandango. Yet. Also contributing to the
soundtrack will be Andrew Bird and Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords. (Thanks to Pitchfork and Stereogum for the, uh, tips.)
