Random Cover of the Week – The Muppets Discuss “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”

Frankly it’s been far too long since there have been Muppets on Pop Culture Will Eat Itself. It’s not the first time we’ve had a cover of a Paul Simon song though, but since I tend to prefer Paul Simon covers to the originals, we’ll let that slide. This cover is The Muppet Show‘s in-house band, Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem taking on Simon’s classic “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”, featuring bass player Sgt. Floyd Pepper on lead vocals.

Am I the only one that misses The Muppet Show? There hasn’t been anything like it on TV since it went off the air, and that’s a shame. Can we get VH1 to cancel Random D-List Celebrity of Love in an RV 12 and bring it back? Please?
