Muppets Singalong Time - Here's Life's A Happy Song, From The New Movie

The first song from the soundtrack to James Bobin and Jason Segal’s new Muppet movie has been released. It was premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s show, and he’s now sharing it online.

Get ready for 4 minutes and 29 seconds of just the kind of joy you knew you could depend upon the Muppets for.

This is Life’s a Happy Song, as written by Bret McKenzie. It’s performed by Jason Segal, Amy Adams and Walter, who sounds rather a lot like Muppeteer Peter Linz for some reason. You’ll also hear Leslie Feist and Mickey Rooney for a line or two.

You’ll find that this the version that appears towards the start of the film, before Gary, Mary and Walter set off for LA and their Muppets adventure. It’s reprised at the end of the film with a huge cast, including many of the lead Muppets.Top points to anyone who can name all the individual Muppets who get their own line in this song, the first to be released from the original soundtrack for The Muppets.

Hannah and I were writing this story at the same time. Here’s her take on it:

It’s called Life’s A Happy Song and it’s sung mainly by the film’s two human leads (not that I’m suggesting that Muppets aren’t people too, man) Amy Adams and Jason Segel. Now anyone who’s seen Enchanted knows that Adams can sing, but can Jason Segel keep up with her?

Well, it sure is upbeat, and Amy Adams’ solo halfway through gives away a few snippets about the relationship between her Mary and Jason Segel’s Gary, and that certain bridge they must overcome.

Those of you who like your musical movies, how would you rate this?

I love my musical movies, Hannah. And I’d rate this very highly.
