"After You've Gone," is a jazz standard that has been recorded by a variety of artists, including Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Charlie Parker, and Frank Sinatra. It was sung by Judy Garland in the 1942 movie For Me and My Gal.

An instrumental version of "After You've Gone" is performed as the UK Spot in episode 504 of The Muppet Show. It features Nigel conducting Floyd, Zoot, Janice (on banjo), Animal, Rowlf, Lips, and the Trumpet Girl (on trombone) in the orchestra pit.

This number is performed similarly to "How High the Moon" in episode 524. Both are instrumentals performed by the orchestra in the pit, and both are UK Spots. The sketches are are also made up of a similar sequence of solos and camera angles, starting with a shot of the entire orchestra with Lips on trumpet, followed by Janice's solo, then Rowlf's, Zoot and Floyd's, and Animal's, closing with another shot of the orchestra.

The only difference between the "After You've Gone" and "How High the Moon" numbers, apart from the songs themselves, is that Janice plays banjo in the former and guitar in the latter.

Footage from "After You've Gone" can be seen during the end credits of the UK VHS and DVD releases of The Very Best of the Muppet Show: Volume 2.
