Muppet Monday: Something that Simply Mystifies Me

Nothing screams romance like the Muppets, don’t you think?

On the eve of my second wedding anniversary, I can’t think of any other way to celebrate. Let me tell ya.

How about a little classy Cole Porter tune thrown in? “You Do Something to Me” was a song featured twice in the first season of The Muppet Show. But neither skits were what I would call… typical.

First, there was Wayne and Wanda (we all know how that will end up):

And, second, with a magician Muppet who performs spells on a smaller, infatuated Muppet:

I always love how the Muppets spin things.

“You Do Something to Me” is a song that’s lived a long life; it was written in 1929 and featured in the musical, Fifty Million Frenchmen.

“Let me live ‘neath your spell 
Do do that voodoo that you do so well 
For you do something to me”

Coming upon my eighth year with James, I totally understand that voodoo. Never thought I would be a craft beer connoisseur or making sure The Land was a must-stop during Disney World trips. I can thank my wonderful husband for those two very important life changes. (Maybe also the heavy metal music I listen to every now and then when he puts it on.) At least he doesn’t try to cut me in half or put fashion backward spells on me… life could certainly be worse.

(For those of you who don’t go looking for the deeper meaning of love on The Muppet Show, check out this cover from Frank Sinatra.)

Have a great week, friends!
