Now, this may not have the cool hipster cred of the other acts on this ongoing playlist of summer bangers, but sometimes what you need to put you in that big cheesey summer grin mode is a big cheesey musical number from a recent puppet-filled musical film.
The track is written by Flight of the Conchords’ Bret McKenzie and performed by Jason Segal and Walter, the man/muppet protagonist of The Muppets movie.
It’s a bombastic summer tune filled with optimistic lyrics about togetherness and friendship, hilarious rhymes (life’s a fillet of fish…), gorgeous orchestration and whole chorus of backing vocals perfectly accompanied by a colourful dance number which marks the first song in the movie.
If you’re looking for a cheering up and love a good sing-along, get your ears around it here:
