Awesome Music: Phineas and Ferb
Music makes us better,
Brings us together,
And it helps me get back that spirit they stole!

Music makes us better,
Brings us together,
And I owe my life to Rock and Roll!
Love Handel, "Music Makes us Better"


    open/close all folders 

    General 

    Season 1 
  • You want specifics? Oh, where to begin? How about the entirety of the "Love Handel" Episode? "Danny's Story", "You're Fabulous!", "I Ain't Got Rhythm" (oh yes you do!), and of course: The Concert too.
    • "Ain't Got Rhythm" is the only song from Phineas and Ferb apart from the opening that actually won an award, which makes it even more impressive. The Title Drop in "Fabulous" is the icing on the cake, mainly because of the way Phineas says it.
    Phineas: Nice 'do! But back to the matter at hand.
    So what do you say, are you back in the band?
    Bobbi: Well, maybe if I can find my old leather.
    Phineas: Dude! We're getting the band back together!
    • As if this show needs any more proof that it's filled to the brim with Awesome Music, think about this: after composing a spectacular, authentic-sounding, toe-tapping, undeniably catchy original hardcore rock song, they take this said song, and shove it in their credits. Not just that, but they just make it less than 30 seconds long. That's what Phineas and Ferb did with Music Makes Us Better, from the band episode. Judging from the music on most kids shows nowadays, other shows would kill to have that kind of song as the show-stopper in the middle of any episode. Amazing.
    • And seriously, "Ain't got Rhythm" deserves more emphasis. You wouldn't believe a library has so much rhythm until you watch that. Honestly, when Vincent Martella starts harmonizing and the kickass horn section drops in, it becomes the best dancing, most toe-tapping thing ever. Not only that, but the beat sounds suspiciously similar to "We Will Rock You", making it a huge Shout-Out to Queen.
  • "Squirrels in My Pants". Best Disney song ever made EVER. And the extended version is even better. The video also counts as a Moment of Getting Crap Past the Radar.
  • Basically every song that made it into the Cliptastic Countdownnote . The Countdown itself ended up being an unintended tribute to Candace. She sings in 7 out of the top 10 songs and was prominently featured in all but one, far more than any other character. The Countdown showcased Ashley Tisdale's superb singing voice, the many different music styles that can be found on the show, and how songs can range from catchy to hilarious to touching to sad. And nearly all of it was centered around this one character.
  • Even when it's not an original song, the music in this show is still awesome. Watch the episode "Mom's Birthday" and listen hard when the wax presidents melt. Is that song you're hearing in the background Jimi Hendrix's version of 'The Star Spangled Banner'? Yes, yes it is.
  • Gitchee Gitchee Goo and its extended version. This was the song that convinced the studio to make sure there was a song in every single episode from then on!
    • And if you listen closely, and have a decent knowledge of cartoon history, you'll easily recognize the song as a parody/homage to the Jetsons song, "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah (Meet Me Tonight)".
    • If you think about it, it might also count as a Moment of Getting Crap Past the Radar; part of its main lyrics is about the singer's girlfriend singing 'bow-chicka-bow-wow' which is a rather infamous background music.
  • One Little Scare Ought To Do You Some Good. There's the shipping, yes (Phineas, is there a reason you needed to hold Isabella's hand throughout the entire song, even while standing still?) but even better there's the Danny Elfman-esque track (complete with creepy lalalalas in the backgound), Phineas as a mad scientist, and Baljeet and Buford's hilarious attempts to terrify Isabella. The instrumental version of it playing when Candace runs through is awesome as well.
  • "E.V.I.L. B.O.Y.S". Yes, you will believe a middle-class teenage white girl can sing the Blues.
  • The F Games An arena-rock-sounding song that feels so authentic and engaging, you'll swear Freddie Mercury had a hand in composing it.
  • Disco Miniature Golfing Queen. An insanely catchy disco-themed song about miniature golf? ABBA would be proud.
  • My Chariot from Greece Lightning has its merits. What other song has the word 'anachronistic' in it?
  • Missing My Nemesis (possibly better remembered as "The Moments When We Didn't Get Along") manages to be tear-jerking and hilarious AT THE SAME TIME. "But now you're doing battle/With a panda from Seattle"? That's genius, man.
  • Chains On Me.
  • He's A Bully.
  • Queen Of Mars. Ultra-catchy, probably the best of Ashley Tisdale's singing... and she's just so happy.
  • The birthday song that Candace wrote for her mom.
  • Do Nothing Day.
  • Busted, especially the The Brazilian version.
  • I'm Lindana And I Wanna Have Fun, anyone? Olivia Olson shows a great voice in that one.
  • "Backyard Beach." Is there anything Ferb can't do?
  • Let's take A Rocket Ship To Space is beautiful, romantic, and like every other song on this page, an incomparable Ear Worm.
  • Baliwood.
  • "The Magnificent Few" has On The Trail and In The Mall.
  • S'Winter!
  • Phinedroids and Ferbots.
  • He's Bigfoot. Barry Bostwick ought to sing more often.
  • She's A Truck Driving Girl tells you exactly why Candace is a a tire-spinning, gear-grinding, clutch-burning', back-firing, paint-trading, red-lining, over-heating, throttle-stomping Truck-Drivin' Girl!
  • You can't forget about Perry the Teenage Girl!
  • There's the rocking Shooting Star Milkshake Bar guaranteed to make you shake your asteroid.
  • Hemoglobin Highway.

    Specials and Miscellaneous 
  • Every song in their Christmas Special.
  • Even before it aired, a sneak preview of the 1-hour special "Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs To You" with the songs Bouncin' Around The World and Rubber Band promised to make the episode epic.
    • The first 15 minutes went online soon afterward, and it had "I Believe We Can" and "J Pop (Welcome to Tokyo)".
      • Even more awesome when you realise that it's Clay Aiken and Chaka freakin Kahn! The fact that they actually topped the epicness of having Bowling for Soup do two of the songs and Jaret Reddick (lead singer of Bowling For Soup) providing the voice for Love Handle's lead singer is incredibly impressive. It'll be a hard act to follow.
    • How about City of Love? Genuinely touching.
    • The last song in the episode Summer Belongs To You, is epic.
    • Actually, pretty much ALL of the songs in the special were awesome, go figure.
  • The Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites CD has some pretty good songs like the completely epic Run Rudolph Run sung by Phineas and Days of Christmas which gives Doofenshmirtz some priceless lines.
  • This show can turn the Dodger Stadium code of conduct into an example. Seriously.
  • Do you like the original Perry the Platypus theme? Check out the extended version.
  • The Animatin' Rap done by the creators is both awesome and educational.
  • The O.W.C.A. recruitment song, a parody of Y.M.C.A.
  • Mission Marvel gave us Only Trying to Help, an awesome and very touching duet between Candace and Isabella.
    • The final song in the special, "Feeling Froggy", underscores the final fight between the Marvel heroes (with Perry) and the supervillains. And it is epic.
  • Doofenshmirtz raps about rap music on Doof's Daily Dirt.
  • "Phineas and Ferb Save Summer" gives us three awesome songs:
    • "Summer All Over the World" performed by Phineas and the gang might rival "Summer Belongs to You" and "Summer (Where Do We Begin?)" as the official anthem of summer.
    • "Irving's Camp Song", a song performed by Irving while filling in for Phineas and the gang, sounds pretty much like something Wander would sing (which makes sense, since they're both voiced by Jack McBrayer).
    • "OWCA's Goin' Down", a song performed by the villains of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. is a direct parody of songs from West Side Story such as "The Jets Song" and "Cool".
  • "Phineas and Ferb Star Wars" contains five musical numbers:
    • "Tatooine", Phineas' ode to the planet he calls home that actually makes what is portrayed as a Crapsack World in the Star Wars universe look like an awesome place to live. Complete with live horns and a fantastically catchy chorus. Ferb also drops a rap in the middle.
    • "In the Empire", Candace's musical backstory about why she became a Stormtrooper, with plenty of jokes such as "You can be all that they want you to be."
    • "I'm Feelin' So Low", A pretty humorous song sung by Twi'Lek singer Vanessa, where she sings "so low" so many times that it annoys Isabella and she shoots her microphone.
    • "Sith-Inator", Darthenshmirtz's fast-paced Broadway-style song all about his latest creation.
    • "Rebel, Let's Go!", Vanessa's rockin' finale.
    • In fact, the entire score of the special not only uses John Williams' original score, but Danny Jacob's score is made to sound less synthesized than usual that the lines are blurred between the two.
  • "Night of the Living Pharmacists":
    • Jump Right to It, in which Gretchen makes her debut as a lead singer.
    • Triangulation is, as Baljeet puts it, an upbeat song for a desperate situation.
    • Doofenshmirtz revels in his Army of Me.
    • Just when you think we've seen the last of the zombie pharmacists, we get Lots of Me, in which Doofenshmirtz turns their mantra into a rap.

    Across the 2nd Dimension 
  • Across the Second Dimension has some rocking songs of course, like the epically chassis-kicking Robot Riot.
  • Though it's been cut, "Some Mysterious Force" qualifies.
  • Special mention to many people's favorite, Summer (Where Do We Begin?). It will stand the test of time not only for Vincent Martella's wonderfully uplifting vocals and the excited yet soothing music, but also as the absolute be-all-and-end-all representation of summer to a child. Who can go against "Ice cream cones and/Cherry soda/Dripping down your chin"?? That's it. That's summer.
  • Also special mention to "Kick It Up A Notch," which has the be the most epic ending song ever. How epic? It has majorly cool guitar playing by Slash. Who said he did it because he likes the show.
    • How did the show's creators get Slash to do a song for the movie? He called them and asked.
  • A Brand New Best Friend qualifies as the most awesomely charming villain song ever in a Disney movie.
  • Brand New Reality.
  • Everything's Better with Perry. It even wins the second Musical Cliptastic Countdown, beating "Summer Belongs to You" among others.
