I Remember Mahna Mahna!


A lot of folks ask who influenced my music as a kid. Well, the answer is probably not what one would expect. The first songs I would hum along to, play my rubber band guitar to, & what made music cool to me was The Muppets

These Post Sesame Street, Pre Fraggle Rock era character puppets where indeed highly influential to my generation

Jim Henson, the mastermind behind the creation of The Muppets, has certainly influenced & inspired many musicians worldwide including ways he never would have expected with that 70’s show

From Kermit the Frog’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green”, Animal’s wild fast & furious anarchistic drumming antics, to Miss Piggy’s dance, song & shuffle, the mixed theatrical setting of The Muppet Show offers cutting edge Vaudeville like entertainment that all kids LUV

It’s great entertainment value & inspires nostelgic weekend plans for grown ups too

Like most kids my age, ‘Mahna Mahna! was essential listening for any 7 year old during those times & top of the pops on my Mother’s portable turntable
