Halfway down the stairs / Mah na mah na - The Muppets

If you haven't seen the most recent Muppets movie yet, try to go and see it now because it's rather hilarious. Despite all the squeaky clean candyfloss production values, the writers have done their best to incorporate that good old Muppet anarchy in the story, and best of all: the movie uses the rich history of Jim Henson's creatures to full effect.

One of the great things about the movie is that the song 'Mah na mah na' is featured in it. This was used in the very first episode of the Muppet Show in 1976 and also appeared on the soundtrack album for the show. This single, released by PYE in 1977, features two classic Muppets song. Officially 'Halfway down the stairs' is the A-side, and it is this song which peaked at number 7 in the UK singles chart in June 1977. But who remembers this sweet little song performed by Kermit's nephew Robin?
