The Top 5 Beatles Songs (Performed by Muppets)

Posted by 36 on

These are our favorite Beatles covers from The Muppet Show. Our list would go on forever if we added Sesame Street (Letter B, anyone? Still cracks us up!), though we just may do that someday. Muppets performing Beatles is a magical combination. 5. Beetles Sing Beatles - This one makes the list in spite of its lack of Muppet starpower (Kermit introduces the bug band as a talented young group of unknowns) because of the classic grumpy Statler and Waldorf comeback at the end. 4. Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da - Two muppet blokes and a chorus of canines equals wacky fun. 3. Floyd's Guitar Gently Weeps - The lead guitarist for Electric Mayhem shows his softer side, on what looks to be the set of Hitchcock's Rear Window. How could you not love The Muppet Show? 2. A Little Help From My Friends - Janice the hippie Muppet is tied up, about to become the human sacrifice of a stone, saxophone-playing Eagle, and she still manages to beat out some pretty slinky percussion. The members of Electric Mayhem sneak past her pig captors to save the day. That's what friends are for. 1. Gonzo Acts Naturally - Gonzo, a mirror, a ukulele and a Buck Owens song that the Beatles covered. What could be more entertaining?
