Song of the Week: "I'll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu)"

Every song I could think of this morning was kind of sad or dour. It's raining softly and dark, and somehow this song came into my head... and it sounds cheesy, but the rain's stopped and it's lighter. So that's the magic of Muppets, man. This is my favorite song from the wonderful (and apparently underrated) Muppets Most Wanted, and it's the official video, which replaces Matt Vogel's performance as Constantine, the World's Most Dangerous Frog, with the song's composer, Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, hamming it up in a 70s/80s-inspired cheese fest. Have a brighter day, everyone. Son's even brighter since I started writing this!
