No, really you can be a frog

At about age 4, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I responded "Miss Piggy". Now that I'm grown up I'm sadly not a pig. Or a muppet. But not so in the Flaming Lips eyes. Nothing can stop them from imaging all the wild possibilities of what we can be. A frog! A bear! A helicopter! Anything is possible. Rainbows and ponies for everyone! And it's that whimsical spirit that makes me love "I Can Be a Frog" off the upcoming double-album Embryonic. Also mad props to Karen O for contributing kooky animal noises. Check out the vid: The Flaming Lips "I Can Be A Frog"

Ha, Miss Piggy. That's hilarious. When I was little I wanted to work at K-Mart when I grew up. I guess some kids are way more ambitious than others.
