Awesome Music / Family Guy

Go To

Thanks to Author Appeal, Family Guy is lucky enough to have a truly lavish soundtrack. The composers seem to be on a never-ending quest to top themselves. And then they made an album with a nine-minute big band medley of 80's sitcom themes. It really helps the show's case that Seth MacFarlane himself is a trained singer.

  • By the way, a cordial Fate Worse than Death to anyone who posts the Surfin' Bird song... The surfin' bird song! b-b-b-bird bird bird, b-bird's the word...
  • Gotta Give Up the Toad from "Let's Go to the Hop" is a spectacular and hilarious rendition of "You're the One That I Want" from Grease.
  • Prom Night Dumpster Baby has one of the best Rat Pack era feels to it, regardless of the basis for the song or how short it is.
  • The harmony in the Fat Guy National Anthem is beautiful.
  • Family Guy's rendition of "Shipoopi" is one of the highlights of the episode "Patriot Games", sung when Peter scores a touchdown. It actually had the largest number of singers in a Family Guy song.

  • "When We Swing" from "Brian Sings and Swings", especially with the talent of Frank Sinatra Jr.
  • Any of the "Road to" songs are fabulous, especially "Road to Rhode Island" and "So Awfully Different.
  • In the newer episodes, there's a new ending theme, an awesome, jazzy, big band number.
  • In the episode "Extra Large Medium", we have Stewie's song "Down Syndrome Girl", which is hilarious. Near the end you wonder "How the hell is he singing that fast, with that many big words, without pausing?!" As a matter of fact, it was even nominated for an Emmy.
  • The song "All I Really Want For Christmas" from "Road to the North Pole", where the whole town gets in on a kick-ass holiday carol. And "Christmas Time Is Killing Us" was the most incredible moment in the post-cancellation history of the show. Especially considering it takes its rhythms from "Be Prepared".

  • "North by North Quahog" makes liberal use of Bernard Herrmann's soundtrack to North by Northwest. And it's amazing.
