RJ Writing’s Musical Cliptastic Countdown of Favorite Phineas and Ferb Songs, Pt. 1
Hello everybody and welcome to the first part of my week of Phineas and Ferb. It’s all leading up to the debut of my review for the new movie, Candace Against the Universe this Friday. Initially, I planned on doing something similar to what I did for Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. However, I’ve got too much to do now. This would be a compromise.
So, here’s how this will work: every day, I’ll be revealing two of my favorite songs from the show and give a brief explanation about why I like them so much. Whether you agree or not is up to you. In addition, I’ll be counting songs from the specials and the TV movie, Across the Second Dimension. With that out of the way, let’s get started.
#11- Phineas and Ferb Theme
Okay, I know I was only going to do 10 songs, but I felt like it would be an insult not to include the theme song. So, in it goes!
Besides being a theme song that people are able to easily recognize, I love the theme song because it encapsulates everything that the show’s about. It’s just two boys trying to enjoy their summer vacation. Then it lists off all the crazy things Phineas and Ferb come up with to make their summer awesome.
#10- Perry the Playtpus
I don’t anyone would have thought that something as bizarre as a platypus could end up being so cool, but Phineas and Ferb managed to do just that. While he acts as the boys beloved pet, Perry’s really a secret agent whose mission is to thwart the schemes of Dr. Doofenshmirtz. And as his theme song aptly demonstrates, he looks super cool in his feodora while doing so. Thus, this song gets on the list at number ten.
#9- E.V.I.L. B.O.Y.S.
Coming in at number nine on my list, we have this little gem sung by Candace. While attempting to bust her brothers for building a circus in the backyard, Candace has an allergic reaction to wild parsnips. As a result, her face turns red and her voice sounds deep and raspy. When she gets to her mom, she then breaks out into a song that’s basically her venting over the fact that her brothers always get away with whatever they do and how much stress it causes her. What makes this song even more memorable is that the entire song is sung by series co-creator Dan Povenmire. He wound up performing it live at his birthday years later. What a performance.
#8- Ain’t Got Rhythm
For our final pick of the day, we’ve got the unlikely song that wound up being the best in an episode with several great songs. In their mission to reunite their parents favorite band, Phineas and Ferb find the band’s drummer working as a librarian. However, he refuses to come back since he claims he lost his sense of rhythm. What follows is a very catchy and impromptu song that has everyone in the library take part in.
I have to say, of all the songs from this episode, this is the one that I always remember first. It’s just so catchy, and the fans think so too. This song wound up being so good, it got nominated for an Emmy award. How cool is that?
Come Back Tomorrow
Well, that’s all the time we have today, everyone! Come back tomorrow to see the next songs on my list!
