This is a dark comedy musical. It's filled with awesome musical numbers. So let's list them off:
- "Josh Just Happens to Live Here!"
- The first song of the show is "West Covina," a rollicking musical number all about how Rebecca is so in love, on my gosh...with West Covina. It features a big band orchestra and it ends with a giant Busby Berkeley Number where Rebecca is lifted into the air on a giant pretzel.
- The second song is "The Sexy Getting Ready Song," a Contemporary R&B song all about Rebecca getting ready for her date with Greg. It features also features a real rapper (Nipssey Hussle).
- The last song of the pilot is "West Covina (Reprise)," a low-key reprise of the first song, but this time it's a duet with Paula (Donna Lynn Champlin), who has an amazing voice.
- Paula's torch song, "His Status Is Preferred", is a great show-stopper, with a sexy jazz tune and Donna Lynn Champlin rocking it in a beautiful red dress.
- "You Stupid Bitch" is a high point of awesome for the show in general (and one that best expresses Rebecca's psyche), being both a spot-on parody of a Whitney Houston-style ballad as well as a boiling, acidic whirlpool of rage and self-loathing.Audience: You ruined everything, you stupid bitch...Rebecca: Sing with me!Audience: You ruined everything, you stupid, stupid bitch.Rebecca: Yes, I deserve this!
- "Flooded With Justice", a spot-on Pastiche of Les Misérables's "Can You Hear The People Sing", hilarious and awesome at the same time for mimicking the majestic tune of the original piece to talk about water issues. Its reprise, while short, maintains its awesomeness and adds a bit of a heartwarming tone as even losing the case, the people thank Rebecca for fighting for them.
- "Don't Settle For Me" lets Vella Lovell show off her great singing voice.
- "What'll It Be?" is one of the season's (if not the show's) richest musical moments and has a moving, heartfelt lyric. Bonus points because that really is Santino Fontana playing the piano.
- "Group Hang" deserves special mention for being both a catchy parody of "Whenever, Wherever" with absolutely hilarious lyrics about Rebecca failing to have a romantic moment with Josh and cultural insensitivity towards Mexicans.
- Darryl's Bi the Way song "Getting Bi" deserves a special mention for being both catchy and funny as hell.
- "I'm the Villain in my Own Story", an Affectionate Parody of Disney's Villain Song, in which Rebecca realizes she causes awful things to others in a sinister tune.
- Greg's Grunge "I Could if I Wanted To" is an awesome tune that explores his Stopped Caring attitude and reveals more about his Fatal Flaw.
- "One Indescribable Instant," as sung by Aunt Mryrna in "Paula Needs to Get Over Josh!" - may not be a funny song, but it goes with the ending so well.
- "Feelin' Kinda Naughty: so weird and twisted yet so hilarious at the same time.
- "Where is Josh's Friend?"
- Starts off with the new opening titles "I'm Just a Girl in Love", a catchy Busby Berkeley Number detailing how Rebecca definitely can't be held responsible for her actions, and definitely does not have any underlying issues to address.
- "Love Kernels" is a great number to start off the season, a parody of Beyoncé's "Lemonade (2016)" about how Rebecca is desperate to see everything Josh says and does as a subtle "I love you."
- "When Will Josh See How Cool I Am?"
- "Maybe This Dream", Paula's "I Want" Song, is both a hilarious parody of "Once Upon a Dream" and lets Donna Lynn Champlin show off her amazing range.
- "Greg's Drinking Songs" deserves credit for not only being a well-written Irish drinking song, but for discussing the realities of alcoholism and how it affects the people around the alcoholic.
- "It Was a Shit Show" is a hilarious and tragic song with Greg reviewing his relationship with Rebecca as a complete catastrophe and explaining why they shouldn't be together.
- "We Tapped That Ass" has Vincent Rodriguez III and Santino Fontana doing an amazing tap dance number.
- While parodying Power Ballads, "You Go First" makes a good job at being an awesome one. With an added hilarity for Paula and Rebecca '80s Hair getting bigger and bigger.
- "Remember That We Suffered" is a lively klezmer song where Rebecca hears her family talk about the issues and the pains of the Jews over the years, bringing up the Holocaust and Hitler in the middle of an impossibly upbeat tune.
- "Devil Winds" is a fun and catchy little tune sung by an Anthropomorphic Personification of the Santa Ana's Winds, who states his intention to prank and narrate the episode.
- "Where's Rebecca Bunch?", an Affectionate Parody of Beauty and the Beast's opening number "Belle", and possibly the biggest production of the show so far, with basically every character singing a part of it as Rebecca swears to become a Woman Scorned and her friends worry about her.
- "Let's Generalize About Men" is a fun, 80's style number in which the girls do just that.
- "Head in the Clouds." Vincent Rodriguez III really does have a gorgeous voice, but it's not nearly as showcased as others on the show. Luckily, this song remedies that, and he gets to show off his dancing skill, too!
- "Strip Away My Conscience" is a Chicago inspired Evil Is Sexy song, where Rebecca asks Nathaniel to teach her to be bad. The lyrics mix fun innuendos with a sexy tune. And of course, Rachel Bloom performing a striptease is a very welcome sight.
- "Scary Scary Sexy Lady", a parody of thriller movie openings, is funny as hell for its lyrics skewering the Femme Fatale trope and credits spoofing credits in general ("written by: Josh Chan because that's all his fault" and "Costumes by: Whoever does Rihanna, because OMG).
- "The End of the Movie" Any song performed by Josh Groban is going to be awesome, but the song is really something special, perfectly mixing comedic moments with the sad, hopeless tone of the episode.
- "This Session is Going to Be Different" is a cabaret style song sung by Dr. Akopian, with Michael Hyatt going all out on the vocals.
- "The First Penis I Saw" is a funny and catchy ABBA Pastiche of "Mamma Mia" with Paula remembering her past romance.
- "Get Your Ass Out of My House" is a hilarious karaoke piece of Josh's mom telling her son to go and calling him out for being a Manchild, specially awesome if you dislike Josh.
- Why is Anti-Depressants Are Not Such A Big Deal one of the best numbers in the show's history? Because not only is it a great send up of musicals, but it earned Rachel Bloom a "Best Original Song & Lyrics" Emmy Award!
