One of the many memorable moments from Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s hugely successful musical The Book Mormon is “Hasa Diga Eebowai”, a song which works on so many levels: as a biting “Hakuna Matata” spoof, as a joyful hymn to atheism, as a hilariously graphic and vulgar piece of comedy, as a violent clash of philosophies for the mormon characters in the play. It’s definitely one of those so-wrong-it’s-so-right tracks and it’s unlikely another song from The Book Of Mormon won’t qualify as Song Of The Day eventually so watch this space.
One of the many nuggets of genius to be found in Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s anarchic puppet movie Team America: World Police is the “Montage” song which facilitates a transition for the main character in pure piss-take fashion as Hollywood’s time-saving movie clichés are poked fun at in one of the best minutes the film has to offer. The song also popped up in a South Park episode a while back.
Remember: always fade out in a montaaaaaage…
Forget Frozen‘s take on snowman-building: this is where it’s at.
From what is quite possibly the least Christmassy movie ever, Troma’s Cannibal! The Musical was not only Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s first full-on musical but it also remains one of their most underrated, underwatched gems, probably because it was made pre-South Park. “Let’s Build A Snowman” is one of the most memorable song numbers from the film, for obvious reasons (see below).
