Default Favorite music moments

One of the great things about the way MITM is shot is that they get to use music in ways that a lot of sitcoms don't. Good song choice can make a joke ten times funnier. What are some of your favorite music moments in MITM?

I think one of the best music moments was when Hal organizes the revolt at the Lucky Aide. The switching of the music from show tunes to adult contemporary, (as all the employees had unanimously decided on) as Hal leads the army with mop in hand was absolutely brilliant. I know if I ever take over a store, I'm going to have Phil Collins playing in the background. Such a wonderfully rediculous song choice.

That´s a great topic, I also like the music parts a lot. Some of my favourites are

-Reese driving the driver´s ed car through the obstacle course (music: In to Deep)

- Of course the clown fight at the end of "Lois´birthday". It´s so hilarious when they´re fighting and in the background you can hear a very romantic music (You decorated my life). The great thing about the music is not only that it makes the scene funnier, but that you realize that Lois is pretty touched.

-When the boys use their slingshot to throw disgusting things on people (song: Tune in). What would that scene have been withought music?

These are only a few now, but there are just too many great music scenes to mention them all.

You're absolutely right, MITM is one of few shows that really makes music work to their advantage. I think this is because they use a very wide range of music, but whatever song they use, it always seems to fit with the moment.

Examples that stick out for me are: -
  1. We are the Champions (Queen) when Hal rollerskates in "Rollerskates"
  2. The Last Rock Show (Bowling for Soup) when the boys drive the golf cart into a swimming pool in "Family Reunion"
  3. The Art of Losing (American Hi-Fi) when Hal acts like a teenager at a frat party in "Stereo Store"
  4. Feel Like Making Love (Bad Company) when the family drive home at the end of "Vegas", and Malcolm is wondering what happened between his mum and Boone Vincent
  5. Marshmallow World (?) when Lois wrecks her car in "Hal's Christmas Gift"
You could go on and on, there are loads of great scenes involving music in MITM. It's one of the main things I like about the show.

The episode where Hal and Craig enter a kids dance tournament - Every single song was so hilarious. It just fit to Hal and his weird actions.

And MitM made me appreciate classical music. Like when Dewey played Claire de Lune on the piano. I listen to it every once in a while.

How about the music in the Pilot when Stevie and Malcolm humiliate Spath? It's listed as Pencil Rain in the description. I was laughing so much. It was very well coordinated.

You guys came up with a bunch I love but had forgotten about!

I also love when Craig is staying with them and is making a mess of the bathroom, and is singing along to some song from a musical. What musical is that from anyway? That song is hilarious.

That scene with Hal and the steamroller... I think the song was Slow Ride by Foghat... Now that was funny. And of course the classic Take a Chance on Me dancing scene.

Henry Mancini - The Sweetheart Tree

All time classic, the best song of the serie.

I love the song and that episode is great.
