Which songs would you say are the best?  (Both original songs, and songs used in the soundtrack)

Best Original Song?
For me its In the Year 252525.  I really hope they release a longer version with more eras (maybe as an extra on a dvd.  That would be fantastic.)

Best Soundtrack Song?
Baby Love Child by Pizzicato 5 playing over the end of Leela's Homeworld?  One of the most heartwarming moments in the series.  On a similar note, I didn't enjoy LI much, but the Little Bird by Elizabeth Mitchell was a pretty wonderful moment too

Others:
RumbledyHump: I just found Leela singing to the orphans extremely charming, and the song is pretty catchy.  Katey Sagel is pretty fantastic.  The Humplings songs were pretty entertaining what with singing about not eating pastrami that fell on the rug, pretending gay is a dirty word, and poking things with sticks and licking the sticks.

Santa Claus is Gunning You down:
He'll hunt you down and blast your ass from here to Pakistan!

Hell is Other Robots:
That song is a classic.  Nuff said. 

Anymore?  Which ones are YOUR besties? Another thing I will say is that the new series has had some pretty spectacular musical moments.  252525 and Little Bird are certainly two of the most memorable songs played in a Futurama, and certainly can be compared to the original series.

Anybody wanting a full version of the In the Year 2525 parody could probably make do with the original song they were spoofing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izQB2-Kmiic

I know I gave it an intense bit of listening after The Late Philip J. Fry aired.


Anyway, my top 5 original songs are probably:
5. Hermes' Song
4. I May as Well Jump
3. The Elves' Song
2. Trinity Going to War
1. Robot Hell

As for unoriginal songs, I think I'd go with Baby Love Child at the end of Leela's Homeworld -not for being the best song they've used, but the best use of a song.

I have a soft spot for the opera in Devil's Hands; that's probably the crowning musical moment of the series for me. But as far as random, let's-just-sing-now moments go? Eh, I really love the song in "A Tale of Two Santas," and both songs in "Bender's Big Score."

I'd say the top three for me are the Robot Devil song in Hell Is Other Robots (this one is LEAGUES above the others, I love it to death), Hermes' song at the end of How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back, and the first song in Bender's Big Score.

The Futurama version runs 1:11, SpaceGoldfishfromWazn was asking for a full length version of it, the original runs 3:24. So, yeah.

The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings is my favourite, I just love that moment where The Robot Devil sings: "I want my hands back!"  big grin

Also, Hermes' song was great.

Everything in the Holiday Craptacular was terrible though. frown

I guess it was alright, but compared to the the Xmas songs in the series it was pretty bad.

It was dire. The music was bland and dull and the actors all sounded more like people singing along to themselves half-under their breath whilst alone at home than people actually performing a song. That is, except for Coolio, and to be fair, his song was probably the best, but it was still very bland and dull. No interesting melody or anything.
I don't know what happened.

Oh yes Nutmeg, I forgot about that song.   Seth McFarlane singing in his that molasses baritone of his?  Oh god yes.  If we are lovers in a thousand years, then I am so getting my bridal veil of brain slugs.

Yeah the Craptacular songs had a few good lyrics "When granny's fruitcake has reached critical mass, it can be regifted straight to Santa's ass" but the songs lacked tune and melody, and the actors didn't sound like they were really trying.  I can't even remember most of the songs, because they mostly came off as godawful drones.  Step it up people.

I don't think I would say it was my fav, but I have a toddler so I find myself singing "If it's alive, don't lick it" an awful lot smile

Loved, loved the Year 252525 song!

I am obsessed with the song in A Tale of Two Santas and also with the one in Less Than Hero. I don't think I can choose between the two of them.

Hermes' song is a close third. It's very catchy.

Go team, go team, team team team.

As for unoriginals, 30 Century Man and Baby Love Child. Oh, and Beautiful World was hilarious.
