    This is the part where being a sedentary old fart who sees too much TV is actually useful.

    I remember the Harry Belefonte episode from the Muppet Show in the '70s like it was last Thursday morning. This is the ep's first song sequence where the gag is the Muppets continuously interrupting the song for some reason. "What's a tallyman? "Deadly black tarantulas?!" And it continues relentlessly from there.

    In fact, the first thing I thought when I saw this was, "Yes, this one's funnier, but the show's final song, "Turn The World Around" is one of the best in the entire series."

    BTW, the actual song title, if I remember the original correctly, is simply "The Banana Boat Song". "Day-O" is often added to make it easier to remember. Since that's been done on many occasions, it's permissible here.

    I suppose this is the point where I should note that the important part was that this is quite obviously not the original version, but a performance of it with the Muppets from when he guest starred on, well...I only mentioned it a half dozen times. This info snippet should be mentioned somewhere...done. See that? Since I spent all this time remembering the episode, I forgot the important bit.

    It actually wasn't shortened for the show.... The 3:42 version is the one we found and played. The title is reversed on it as well and not sure which is the official title? A search has it listed as either/or.

    Apparently, I am asking for too much...

    ...(sigh)...So...I heard that section of the show and it is indeed a shortened version of the original version from The Muppet Show. Extra pages for identical songs cut for time are right out around here (it just wastes space in Wayne's server), so the pages were merged.

    It was a long sequence, so I get that it was shortened to get more songs into the show. It should say this in the show playlist.

    Presumably from the same episode of the original Muppet Show. If it's the same version of the same song, there can't be a short version, just an excerpt. It's audio from a TV show, after all.

    If it's been cut or there's an early fade, the general rule is to put this info on the show playlist and merge extra pages - if it's the same song...which I can't tell because there's no mp3.

    Yes, I know I can just listen to that section of your show & compare them, but I shouldn't have to. This is really about putting the audio on the page. I'm not asking for the moon here.

    I Think this should be combined with song page 42867? This is the short version but it is the same song.
