Here it is: The Song I Need Your Help In Naming.

This is the song I mentioned that I got from my sister on a mixtape, a mixtape whose cardboard insert is lost to the ravages of time/my garage (which, as Einstein probably pointed out in that theory of his, are the same thing. Isn't that what the theory of relativity is about? That's what I tell Sweetie, anyway, to get out of cleaning the garage.)

So listen to this song -- enjoying both the stunning sound quality and dramatic camera work (watch for a major development about 2/3 of the way through) and then TELL ME WHAT THE SONG IS AND WHO SINGS IT!

My friend Steve (who is an expert with questions of this kind) says it's Hawaiian War Chant and supplied this link of the Muppets performing it, to boot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTU7nahUw20

Here it is being performed on the Lawrence Welk show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ekvBj_itSE
