All fans of the Muppets are familiar with the song Mah-na Mah-na but, what many don’t know is that the song was written for the 1968 Italian film Sweden: Heaven and Hell. “A pseudo-documentary about sexuality in Sweden. It shows contraceptives for teen girls, lesbian nightclubs, wife swapping, porno movies, biker gangs, and Walpurgis Night celebrations. It also examines Sweden’s purported drug, drinking and suicide problems.” from IMDB.com
To top all that off it’s X rated.
Evidence of this childhood shattering fact can be found in our Popular American Sheet Music collection.
