* NOW PLAYING * Songs from "Muppet Treasure Island" on The MuppetsHenson Radio Network

You Voted, and many of you asked
to hear songs from 
"Muppet Treasure Island" 
So, now playing on The MuppetsHenson Radio Network are the songs from 1996's "Muppet Treasure Island".

The films songs were written by pop songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.

From Muppet Wiki: 
The movie offered Mann and Weil the opportunity to write theatrical music. Weil said, "We went for a Broadway thing here. When we began working with Brian Henson, we wrote the first song like a kid's song." That song was dropped: "We looked at the rest of the Muppet movies and saw how hip the music was. It was a challenge to write the songs from a theatrical standpoint instead."

The film ends with a reggae number performed by Ziggy Marley, "Love Power". The song was released as a single, and promoted with a music video featuring Marley and some dreadlocked Muppets.
