Have you ever wondered how Jesus Christ Superstar might sound with Kermit as Jesus and Miss Piggy as Mary Magdalene? Or how well Gonzo might be able to pull off the role of Judas?
Well, do we have an album for you: Muppet Christ Superstar, created by Christopher Graham of Lennoxville, Quebec.
The nine-track album features Muppetized versions of classic songs from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, with all parts voiced by Graham himself (the parody isn't officially associated with or sanctioned by either Webber or The Muppet Show). On "I Don’t Know How To Love Him,” for example, "Piggy Magdalene" sings:
He's a frog, he's just a frog.
And I've had so many frogs before
In very many ways:
He's just one more
And on "Heaven On Their Minds," Gonzo, as Judas, sings:
If you strip away the myth from the frog
You will see where we all soon will be
