Vonda Shepard sang it in a very melancholy way for an episode of ALLY McBEAL. Good stuff.

The Muppets were treated nicely by their composers from WILLIAMS, RAPOSO, BURNS and the later ones from the 90's. All had a nice diversity of music and songs, from the catchy, the fast to the beautiful and the pretty.
