This Octo has since passed away since this video of her was taken :( , but I had no truoble with the damsels and her nor have I had any trouble with them and the new octo Jam. I have no clue who sang the song, my brother in law took the video and put it on a CD for me with the music already there. I thought it was way cool and for the life of me couldnt get it zipped until the other day for tony to post. Im just glad everyone got to see Sam one more time :) :cry: :)

Good video. It looks like the octopus is actually floating in the water.
I thought they weren't good floaters cause they dont have any shells in there body but it might have been holding on to something.

Excellent video and who sings the song?

We've all heard "Octopus' Garden" by The Beatles, sung by Ringo Starr from the Abbey Road album, haven't we? :?: :headphon:

yeah, here it is:

Octopus's Garden (takes 2 and 8)
(Ringo Starr)
Lead Vocal: Ringo Starr

(take 2)
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden with me

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden by the sea

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus's garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
In an octopus's garden
In an octopus's garden

(take 8)

Well, I'll take your word for it on who sang the song :D Honestly the only other time I have heard that song was on "The Muppet Show" LOL, which as a kid, I watched all the time :wink: They did a skit about the song with a muppet octo,,,, was really neat to me as a 10yr old, LOL ,just some FYI to why i asked him to put it on the video. It is the only octo song I know :rainbow:
