View Full Version : Favourite Malcolm Music

Mar 17, 2005, 08:50 AM
Music is a very important part of Malcolm in the Middle. In my opinion, the producers have a very nice taste for music. I have learned to like even the ridiculous songs, that I would never hear on my own, like Dancing Queen, because when I hear it, I always have to think of this special scene.

Anyways, what are your favourite songs that appear in Malcolm in the Middle? If you can't think of any, try Radio Malcolm (http://tomlenk.free.fr/radio_malcolm/) (most of you will know that already, I think).

My favourite Malcolm songs are
Debussy - Claire de Lune (Song Dewey plays on the piano in the garage)
Abba - Fernando (Dewey's Table Dance)
Steelers Wheel - Stuck in the Middle (Hal plays that song in the end of "Funeral")
and many more.

My favourite songs from the show are

-You decorated my life (at the end of "Lois´ birthday")
-In to deep (Reese drives)
-Been here once before (Flashback)
-The Art of losing (The babysitter)
-till my head falls of (home alone 4)
-bring it on (Lois´makeover)
-good life (Casino)

But there are just too many.

Big thanks for that one! :) I couldn't remember in which episode that was so I couldn't look it up at Bigfitz's site.

To be Honest I think They Might Be Giants - Boss of Me is the all time best in the entire show, it really.....sets it up really well...

I really liked the "Better Days" song at the end of the last episode, it suited the situations, show, and feeling very well.

Jul 3, 2006, 04:27 PM
And it was yet another connection to the Pilot, which also ended with Better Days.

My favorite is easily Nice is good, mean is bad. It's just plain weird, but I find it to be catchy. I liked the better days song as well.

Or in Convention: "Poopy, poopy, poopy, poop. Poopy, poopy, poopy, poop." One of my all-time favorite Dewey moments. :)

LOL, they "could" be giants. Sorry... xD

There's actually a cover of Stuck in the Middle With You by a side project (Eagles of Death Metal) of one of my favorite bands. I'll put a e-playlist here for you to listen to it soon.

And, come to think of it, a song called Monkey in the Middle by Desert Sessions. It's a nice instrumental. Kinda slow and... nah, just slow.

One of my favourites isn't listed here, the title is 'Pedal to the Metal' from Kazzer.
It can be heard in the episode 'Malcolm holds his tongue' (4x07), while Hal 'run walks' (I don't know how this is called, when he walks quickly with an 'aerodynamical' helmet and matched closing).
I really like this song, this is my cell phone ring tone since months, and I have it on my car radio most of the time !
And of course I also like the theme song, and many other ones such as Abba, Lipps Inc.,...

Most of the songs of the series can be heard here: http://malcolminthemusic.malcolm-france.com/

"We are the Champions" by Queen, on "Rollerskates" episode as Hal skates around the school courtyard, lol, that's a classic :thumbup1:

if you go to bryan cranston's website, on the MITM page, there is a video of that scene http://www.bryancranston.com/mal_main.asp
