I really liked the use of Rush - Tom Sawyer in AOI 2. Fitted it to a tee.

I've got to go with the majority. The Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" and their cameo in the robot hell song was probably the best. The song at the end of Jurassic Bark was cute, too. But no one mentioned that one song in "Bender Should Not be Allowed on TV". It was a good song and its use in that episode was very appropriate.

Come to think of it, I'm going to have to do that thing we're not allowed to talk about on this board. To get it. Without paying for it. Through the computer. You know what I mean.

As far as actual songs, I think Pizzicato Five's "Baby Love Child" was perfect for 'Leela's Homeworld.' I wonder who discovered that gem. 

Ah, I have to agree with Helpy and the Bee for this one. (did that sound odd to anyone else?)

Also loved the song in "Obsouletely Faboulous" and even if it's short the one in L&R. Also every original Futurama song owns you all.

Probably when Leela tells Fry he can take the helm in "Time Keeps on Slippin'". I'm speechless every time I hear that. Oh, here it comes now...

I absolutely love 'TV Party' in Bender Should not Be Allowed on TV, both during the ep and in the credits. In terms of the actual score, I like the holophoner sonnet and the end of Xmas Story.

I've just watched Parasites Lost and the music on that sword fight was good.

Noticably F.A.T kickin' the beats in "Luck of the Fryish"

"Bendin' in the wind" is a good music ep.

I'll proboably update this as i think of some tunes.

I don't usually notice the background music unless it's really... noticeable, but I've heard a few things that stuck with me.

Fry's song as he is writing the opera on the PE balcony in Devil's Hands. Only a fragment, but still very nice.

The song over Zoidberg's narration at the end of Love and Rocket (that entire sequence was brilliant, btw).

The guitar music when Fry says Bender wanted to drift forever through the American southwest in Godfellas. Also, Bender's piano composition in the same episode.

As for real songs, what everyone else said.     smile

With regards to instrumental music, the music in The Sting makes my heart beat faster.  Especially in the first shot where Fry's coffin in shown floating in space.

That was a real good song. Real sad. Also when Scruffy played the bagpipes when Fry's coffin was shot into space was real sad.

I'm Slim Shady, yes I'm the real Shady, all you other Slim Shady's are just immitating.  So won't the real Slim Shady please stand up, please stand up, please stand up?

So I guess it'd be "The real Slim Shatner"

Wow, no one has mentioned "Why Must I Be a Crustacean In Love". The music to when Fry and Zoidberg are fighting is exciting and kinetic. Also, the part in "X-Mas Story" once santa throws his grenade, the orchestra goes into high gear and composes a great redition of "Tis the season....". A christmas theme used for an action sequence is funny.

Don't You Forget About Me at the end of "Luck of the Fryfish" was the best placed music. whenever I hear that song now I think of that episode.

Instrumental: That awesome music during the Claw-Plock in 205. Not the Star Trek one, the one during the fighting. It was also in 301.

Song: Iron Man in AOI 1.

Oh, and that string in God fellas that was mentioned eariler up in the thread, it was played in both AOIs when Bender died.

The best music usage for me was between the funny song "Be happy" in The Sting and "do`n`t you forget" in The luck of the Fryrish

"Bender always wanted to drift forever, but through the American Southwest."

As for licensed song, "Mmmmmbop" by Hanson, which was in that same episode I mentioned. 

does anybody have the guitar tab for that litle song?

I liked the music in Roswell that ends well.  Particularily the parts when the crew is going back in time, and then when they're trying to get back to their own time.  Oh and when the army tank rolls past in one short little clip.

That was a great instumental moment.

As a song I have always loved (and found to be incredibly funny) the song that Bender sings on his little piano when he first got thrown into space in Godfellas.  Additionally the instrumental later in Godfellas as Bender is sort of swimming through space matched perfectly.  (and a 2001 reference iThink?)

I agree. It's one of my favourite songs, and used at such a perfect moment to such wonderful effect. ...Not like in that shitty Breakfast Club movie.
