The Music of South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone – #MusicMonday

Love em or hate em, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone know how to write some great comedy songs. Today I'm going to feature some of my favorite tracks from South Park, Orgazmo, Team America, BASEketball, and their religious satire musical The Book of Mormon. Let's begin with the theme song to the 1997 live action film Orgazmo, Now You're a Man. Rika and I still bust out singing this song out loud, cause MAN, MAN, MAN, MAN, MAN it's catchy.

Next up, Blame Canada, the Academy Award Nominated song from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut.

Blame Canada didn't win the Academy Award that year, instead it went to Phil Collins for You'll Be in My Heart from the crappy Disney movie Tarzan. Collins' song was parodied in the following season of South Park, in the episode Timmy 2000. It's the third song on this collection from the show.

Next up, from Team America (FUCK YEAH!), which is loaded with great tracks, we have the amazing Montage song, which cleverly spoofs the Take it to the Limit montage from Scarface. Everybody needs a mothafuckin' montage.

From the movie BASEketball, Coop (Trey Parker) is driving when his car radio starts playing a song that eerily describes his current situation.

Lastly, in case you didn't know, Parker and Stone co-created a hit musical, called The Book of Mormon. It has won nine Tony Awards, and a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. As offensive as the material may be, these guys clearly have a massive musical talent. I Believe is a song from the play:
