I picked “Rock Candy Baby”. I’m also partial to “Are You Happy in Your Work”, but “the kissway to the promised land” is one of the most tortured lyrics I’ve ever heard.

I imagine that particularly good numbers are being left off deliberately. The Platters aren’t on there either.

No “Moon Zero Two” theme? Because it’s all kinds of awesome. Okay fine, Mitchell it is then.

Almost went with “Are You Happy in Your Work?” but then I remembered that Night Train to Mundo Fine actually kinda slaps.

I thought these were for songs the host and the bots did. I was sad to not see “He tried to kill me with a forklift” on the list.

The ultimate paradox of human nature: I voted for that song even though I’ve never been work-happy a day in my life. :thinking:

Perhaps your problem is that you didn’t never ever shirk.

That’s too many negatives for one sentence. Go stand in the corner, and put this pig-in-a-blanket on your head, too.

Yeah, and quit putting moths and washers in the tips dish. That’s only funny if you’re a Muppet.

I forgot about “At the Party”, to be honest, and now the poll is too old so its too late to add it! Sorry, but I’d say the song genuinely counts as a musical number in the movie and so it should have made the cut.

“Moon Zero Two’s” title song doesn’t count because this was all about musical numbers / songs sung in the movie itself rather than music played during the credits or that were part of the score.

The omission from the ballot of one of my favorite songs has got my schick out of shape.

As a protest, I submit the following as a write-in vote –

Go ahead – just try not to sing along!

I just want to post this again! :smiley:

I’m torn.

On one hand, “Are You Happy in Your Work?” is SUCH A GOOD SONG. You get the feeling that if had been placed in a better movie that had a greater reception, it might have been a contender for the Best Original Song Academy Award.

On the other hand, “Rock Candy Baby, You’re Mine!” contains so much pure fun and is part of one of my favorite five-minute stretches in MSTory.

It tore me apart to make this choice, but I went with “Rock Candy Baby” from Daddy-O.
