Last week, Paul gave you guys a list of the Top 10 Disney songs of all time. Admittedly, most of them were pretty good, and I was happy to see my guiltiest pleasure ever – “Kiss the Girl” – coming in at number four. Disney songs are sentimental, sweet, and often quite powerful.
If Disney is on one end of the spectrum, then South Park must be on the other. I’ve been watching South Park since…well, since it began, and it’s amazing how quickly Matt and Trey can crank out catchy and hilarious tunes. Enjoy the top 10 South Park songs after the jump. Even if you don’t agree, at least you’ll get a laugh out of it.
Some songs are predictably NSFW.
10. The Lemmiwinks Song
I love how the song mirrors something you’d hear in The Hobbit cartoon movie, which I’m sure was intentional. Everyone remembers the first time they saw the Lemmiwinks episode.
Fingerbang could have been bigger than the Jonas Brothers with the right marketing. It’s pretty awesome how Matt and Trey can produce so many different styles of music, including shallow pop marketed toward young girls.
8. The Circle of Poo
Mr. Hankey explains how poo is the basis for all life as we know it. Poetic, huh? There were a few Mr.Hankey songs to choose from, but I felt that The Circle of Poo was the most, uh, profound.
7. A Lonely Jew on Christmas
I’m sure I’m not the only one who can empathize with Kyle’s frustration. I love when he sings in Hebrew.
6. Come Out of the Closet
The concept itself is very funny, but mimicking R. Kelly’s ridiculous style of singing and the stupid soap opera-esque themes in his songs makes this song downright hilarious.
5. What What in the Butt
Just wow. Butters is the best. It’s great that Butters’ video (which isn’t embedded because of copyright Nazis) is exactly like the bizarre type of shit you see on YouTube all the time.
4. Chocolate Salty Balls
Back before he was a brainwashed Scientologist, Isaac Hayes was giving instructions on how to suck on his chocolate salty balls. Sounds delicious.
3. Uncle F*cker
Maybe the most immature song of all time, complete with dueling farts. As a bonus, it’s as catchy as it is funny.
2. Kyle’s Mom is a Big Fat Bitch
The best Cartman song ever; it’s his Magnum Opus, perfected for the South Park movie. Nothing beats the African tribal version.
1. Gay Fish
I’m like still laughing from the first time I ever saw this episode. The song itself is brilliant, and in my opinion, the best song ever to be on an episode of South Park.
Honorable Mention: The Homo Rainbow by Ween
Ween is the most underrated band in the world. Just thought I’d put that on the table.
