Good Show, Terrible Songs
I really don't know how to describe why the show is great since the people down there have already brought it up. So I thought I'd rather focus on the music that I kinda find catchy but ridiculous, annoying and badly sung. Probably the only song I like here is "Gitchee Gitchee Goo"—just kinda reminds me of bubblegum pop. There are others but I can't remember their titles.

The songs that I really despise are the ones which contained desperate rhyming, literal lyrics to the video, that voice which seemed to be a bad imitation of The Archies' lead singer, some songs that sound so familiar (e.g. the song from the movie called "I Walk Away", you can easily sing "Don't cry out loud..." the first you listen to it), its narm charm...Honestly, I can go on forever but I can't say everything. Also, the song won't apply to everyone's lives because some of them just sound very silly to the point that it's too stupid to listen to because they don't make any sense.

I have some of the worst singers in my book. Baljeet who is voiced by a male and is seemingly doing his voice in a falsetto. Singing in that voice would annoy you to the core and wish you could crit him Simon Cowell stlye. Kudos to Candace stopping his musical number in that "Wizard of Oz"-esque episode. Doofenshmirtz's musical numbers are just atrocious. He's kind of an insult to the genres of music he sang in my opinion (his broadway preformances would make you want to throw a tomato). Not to mention the eternally terrible voice he has been given. Ferb is too but to a lesser extent. Though he sings good songs and doesn't actually suck, there's the fact that he can always give a surprising range of voice (he seems to be always the bass in songs)and that is a bit cliche, hence he's still boring.

I know many people will not agree with me on this but hey, we have our own views.
I agree with you that many of the songs have gotten lame; with forced rhymes and lyrics that just say what's happening on screen.....but Doofenshmirtz has a GREAT voice, IMO, nowhere close to being "eternally terrible".

Sometimes I think Dan tries to pull off too much, vocal-wise (I can't think of any specific examples at the moment, but he really can't do falsetto when he's throwing his voice like he does with Doof), but when he has a song that's good for his range, like "I Really Don't Hate Christmas", he actually sounds pretty good.

Yeah, the songs are lame.

So instead of giving a review of the series, you give a review on songs...uh huh.

^^ I didn't mean his singing voice, I meant his voice in general. Describing Doof as having "the eternally terrible voice he's been given" just doesn't sit right with me, since I find Doof's voice very fitting and hilarious.

Oh. Oh yes. I completely agree with you there.

I partly agree. Songs from the first and second seasons like "Squirrels in my Pants", "Busted", "Me, myself and I" or "Mobile Mammal" among many others, are awesome, but most songs starting season 3 plain suck. The fact that said songs are sung by offscreen singers instead of the show characters doesn't help.The only exception would be "Run Candace Run".

Personally, I think all the songs are funny and cleaver
