Last year a number of contemporary rock acts participated in the making of Muppets: The Green Album, covering 12 songs from the world's funniest puppets. Kermit the Frog's evergreen (sorry) "The Rainbow Connection" is always a delight, with all its wondering about the eternal questions concerning the world around us. Here it is beautifully covered by power pop outfit Weezer and Hayley Williams from the band Paramore. At exactly 2:07 the line "We know that it's probably magic" and an insistent drum count leads up to the grand finale of the song and what is beyond any doubt the finest moment on a funny, but uneven album.
