Blast From The Past...

I used to love The Muppet Show. And one of my favourite sketches was "Mahna Mahna" - I would drag my hair down over my face and sing away happily to entertain my younger sister.

I heard one of the boys at school singing "Mahna Mahna" as he walked down the corridor, which made me wonder if it had been shown on TV lately, on one of those compilation "100 best..." or something. I decided to check out You Tube for a trip down memory lane, and sure enough...



I have to admit that the aging hippie being given pitying looks by the backing singers as he stubbonly tried to do his own thing did make me grin... Face it, hippies... it's over!

Did you sing along with the boy in the corridor? :-D Or would it have blown your cover for the rest of the year?

There's a copper I work with, a gal whose last name is very similar to "Mahna Mahna."
Every time she comes in, I start singing it, but with her name.
