My Top Ten Favorite Musical Numbers From Cartoons

My buddy, @theromancescrooge, did her top ten favorite original musical numbers from cartoons a while back, and I was hesitant to make my own list. There are just so many good choices I couldn’t narrow it down to just ten. However, as time went on more picks just solidified their position should I make a list. Rules are it has to be from an animated television show, but no anime. Also, one per show. Covers are okay, but no direct lifting of previously existing music. So here it is:


10. “I Got a New Routine” from Milo Murphy’s Law

I love Weird Al. I never got into Phineas and Ferb because reasons. So you give a platform like that to Weird Al and let the gems come naturally. 


9. “Sweet Shop” from Littlest Pet Shop

This cute little diddy is very reminiscent of songs from the 1950s. I like this kinda sound and it plays like a very pleasant commercial. The show is done by the same crew as MLP:FiM, so you can see the talent in animation and casting.


8. “My Shiny Teeth and Me” from The Fairly Oddparents

I like this song. It sounds nice. Hey, shut up. Everyone shut up. Stop laughing at me. Just go to the next one. The next one. But seriously the keyboard is a nice touch and Chris Kirkpatrick’s vocals are smooth.


7. “The Campfire Song Song” from Spongebob Squarepants

Damn, is this song a bunch of fun. Patrick trying his best, but failing makes me laugh everytime. Some would argue that it’s too short but shut up.

6. “The Wizard” from The Looney Tunes Show

I really wanted to put “We are in Love” but after listening to both songs back-to-back, I just like this one better. Much better. A fantasy metal track as Daffy pretends to be an all powerful wizard and the lyrics blur the lines between what he thinks he’s doing and what is actually happening.


5. “Music Revolution” From loliRock

I know I said in my thoughts on loliRock that the songs sound a little too overproduced and I still think that. That being said, I think this song is pretty cool. It’s energetic and has that right amount of vocal harmony that I love in my music and, dare I say it, a little sexy.


4. “This Day Aria” from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

This song is an epic piece. This is some Disney quality stuff. The back and forth between Cadence and the imposter is great. The harmony is amazing.


3. “Hello Nurse!” from Animaniacs

Animaniacs has A LOT of great songs, but this one I have to stop and sing every time. This is the song a guy sings when he’s asked to describe the perfect woman. 


2. “The Ballad of Star Butterfly” from Star vs the Forces of Evil

I love Fall Out Boy. Having Patrick Stump sing Star’s Princess Song was brilliant. It’s a four part rock opera going from a traditional princess song and ending with a big reveal of love. Starco is OTP, baby. Even if Starco isn’t your thing, this is great song.


1. “Here Comes a Thought” from Steven Universe

This song will always be my number one. The first time I heard this song, I cried. I cried because I knew I needed to hear this a long time ago. If I would have heard this beautifully written and performed song when I was a kid, it would have saved me from years of self-loathing.


That’s all I got and thanks for reading.
