CD: Various Artists - The Muppets Soundtrack

Rating: 4/5

It’s more Glee than pop but this CD does have songs that lift it above show-tune ­karaoke.

Jason Segel’s Life’s a Happy Song is upbeat and will have you bouncing around the room, while Pictures in my Head is a soul-

stirring anthem from Kermit.

The best track is the grunge classic Smells Like Teen Spirit given the Muppets treatment.

There are also snippets of dialogue from the movie between songs – your kids will no doubt find a favourite to repeat ad nauseam.
