The CD release of "The Muppet Movie" soundtrack is truer to the film than the vinyl edition issued in 1979 by Atlantic Records (SD 16001). The CD has all eleven titles featured on the album, but with one notable difference. On the CD, "Never Before, Never Again" is the same version featured in the film - not so with the LP. I was somewhat surprised by this discrepancy, but it doesn't take away from my enjoyment of this CD. The CD booklet also includes lyrics to the songs - another departure from the vinyl edition. This makes an enjoyable album much more enjoyable.

With the re-release of the movie on DVD I would hope the CD somehow is re-released as this is enjoyable by kids and adults alike. I am disapponted I can't even get the original "Rainbow Connection" from this on MP3. I distinctly remember Paul Williams composed it. Great music, great cast, great movie.

Had this soundtrack (on cassette, no less) about 30 years ago, but it had long since disappeared. I have been hoping for years that I would stumble across this soundtrack somewhere, anywhere, and here it is! 'The Rainbow Connection' sounds just as wonderful, 'Never Before, Never Again' just as hilariously corny and off-key, and 'I'm Going to Go Back There Someday' still makes me a little misty-eyed. If you need a mood-lifter CD, this is it! Now if we could just get The Muppet Show on Instant Video....

Having a child, you quickly realize that you need to balance your own tastes with those of a small child. Kids are naturally entertained and amused by things that adults find irritating, boring, or wearisome. Every once in a while, though, the ultimate triumph can be found in entertainment that appeals to both adults and children, whether it's due to nostalgia, quality, or, as is the case with The Muppet Movie, both.

The music on this soundtrack is, quite simply, marvelous by any standard. The masterpiece is of course The Rainbow Connection, one of the most beautiful songs ever written and performed with such honesty that it just doesn't matter that its sung by a children's character. Kermit is real, this song is his, and nothing can ever change that.

My other favorite is Moving Right Along, with its spirit of fun and adventure. In its own upbeat way, it's as emotional as the ballads like Rainbow Connection or Gonzo's I'm Going to Go Back There Someday.

My daughter had been enjoying the Sesame Street collection of Elmo's songs for a few months when I finally thought it was time to introduce her to the Muppet Movie's songs. It was wonderful to see how quickly she took to it, as I know it is the start of a lifetime of enjoyment.

In 1979, Kermit The Frog was nominated for an Oscar for his recording of Rainbow Connection from the delightful Muppet Movie. More accurately, it was the brilliant composers Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher who were nominated. If you haven't heard those names before, you may be missing out on some incredible music. It Goes like It Goes, from Norma Rae was the winner. While I am of the opinion that Jennifer Warnes can do no wrong, I was also one of the many people disappointed that Rainbow Connection was not the Oscar choice.

Never mind; time has been kind to this beautifully written and performed song. It has been remade numerous times and is still well loved after nearly 35 years.

I purchased this Soundtrack on vinyl immediately upon hearing Rainbow Connection and was delighted by the entire record which was witty, thought provoking, and irreverent, but wholesome; all at the same time. Although it was written by two mainstream legends, they wrote "outside the box" and managed to capture the awe of childhood without creating a childish record.

I loved Never Before, Never Again. This was Mrs Piggy's over-the-top, yet touching song about falling in love for the first time. I think it is actually quite pretty, even if it is Frank Oz impersonating a sow.

When Gonzo sings I'm Going to Go Back There Someday, you realize that this odd little critter is singing about something much deeper than we first assume. This is another poignant and sweet song.

I Hope That Something Better Comes Along is a funny summation of the battle of the sexes, which must have even more complex dynamics for a frog and a pig.

Moving Right Along is a buddy road song where Fozzie demonstrates his need for GPS in a montage of cross-country navigational errors.

This is a sweet little story with a charming sound track. Hard to get now. I miss films being made like this. Too much CGI. I don't want someone thinking for me. I want to use my imagination and make the leap for myself.
