The Rainbow Connection: Debbie Harry, Kermit, Karen Carpenter
Debbie Harry & Kermit D. Frog
In 1979, the song was originally performed by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson) in The Muppet Movie. In 1981, Blondie’s Debbie Harry sang “The Rainbow Connection” in a duet with Kermit on the Muppet Show.
In 1980, the Carpenters recorded their version of the song for their “Made In America” album. However, the song was not included in the Album due to space limitations. Karen was the lead singer and the orchestra was added in 1999. Richard Carpenter released the single in 2001 and the song was included on the “As Time Goes By” album which was released in Japan on March 6, 2001 followed by a international release on April 13, 2004.
