Who would of known.

I don’t know why it has taken until 2011 for this to come out, but rumor on the street  is the classic Muppet song “Mahna Mahna” is from a  1968 Italian porn film entitled Sweden: Heaven and Hell. Huh.

 

Actually, the film supposedly falls under the “softcore” genre, but none the less it has a crapload of naked chicks in it.

The song was composed by Piero Umiliani, and is played over a scene where Swedish ladies pleasantly walk in line into a sauna, then we see the curious young buxom females in bathrobes happily waiting for whatever will come next- (and for all you Big Lebowski fans out there, “I bet he fixes the cable…”).

 

The song is a Muppets staple, and was one of the pillars that brought the puppets to fame. In the classic video, two Muppets, called “Snouths” (for “snout” and “mouth”), are seen singing the song, which was voiced by creator Jim Henson himself.

I think it’s great in my opinion because back in the day, you actually had scoring done for XXX films, and even had studio bands recording for the soundtracks. Who knows what other gems we might find in the X-rated catalog. Also going by that logic, who knows what Muppets song will be next sourced back to porn films…. “Rubber Duckie” or “1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12″…

The possibilities are endless…
