Phineas and Ferb/Awesome Music

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Music makes us better,
Brings us together,
And it helps me get back that spirit they stole!

Music makes us better,
Brings us together,
And I owe my life to Rock and Roll!


Love Handel, "Music Makes us Better"



Season 1


Phineas: Nice 'do! But back to the matter at hand.
So what do you say, are you back in the band?
Bobbi: Well, maybe if I can find my old leather.
Phineas: Dude! We're getting the band back together!

    • As if this show needs any more proof that it's filled to the brim with Crowning Music of Awesome, think about this: after composing a spectacular, authentic-sounding, toe-tapping, undeniably catchy original hardcore rock song, they take this said song, and shove it in their credits. Not just that, but they just make it less than 30 seconds long. That's what Phineas and Ferb did with Music Makes Us Better, from the band episode. Perhaps YMMV whether the song is really that great or not, but judging from the music on most kids shows nowadays, other shows would kill to have that kind of song as the show-stopper in the middle of any episode. Amazing.
    • And seriously, Ain't got Rhythm deserves more emphasis. You wouldn't believe a library has so much rhythm until you watch that.
      • Honestly, when Vincent Martella starts harmonizing and the kickass horn section drops in, it becomes the best dancing, most toe-tapping thing ever.
  • "Squirrels in My Pants". Best Disney song ever made EVER.
  • Basically every song that made it into the Cliptastic Countdown.[1]
    • The Countdown itself ended up being an unintended tribute to Candace. She sings in 7 out of the top 10 songs and was prominently featured in all but one, far more than any other character. The Countdown showcased Ashley Tisdale's superb singing voice, the many different music styles that can be found on the show, and how songs can range from catchy to hilarious to touching to sad. And nearly all of it was centered around this one character.
  • Even when it's not an original song, the music in this show is still awesome. Watch the episode "Mom's Birthday" and listen hard when the wax presidents melt . Is that song you're hearing in the background Jimi Hendrix's version of 'The Star Spangled Banner'? Yes, yes it is. I fucking love this show.
    • While we're on that topic, at one point during Candace's Mushroom Samba in "The Ballad of Badbeard", you can hear a a Suspiciously Similar Song version of Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe" for a few seconds. Just...yes.
  • How is it Gitchee Gitchee Goo and its' extended version haven't made it onto this list yet?! This was the song that convinced the studio to make sure there was a song in every single episode from then on!
    • And if you listen closely, and have a decent knowledge of cartoon history, you'll easily recognize the song as a parody/homage to the Jetson's song, "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah (Meet Me Tonight)"
      • If you think about it, it might also count as Crowning Moment of Getting Crap Past the Radar. I mean think about it, part of its main lyrics is about the singer's girlfriend singing 'bow-chicka-bow-wow' which is a rather infamous background music.
  • One Little Scare Ought To Do You Some Good gets stuck in my head on a daily basis. LOVE IT.
  • "E.V.I.L. B.O.Y.S". Yes, you will believe a middle-class teenage white girl can sing the Blues.
  • The F Games An arena-rock-sounding song that feels so authentic and engaging, you'll swear Freddie Mercury had a hand in composing it.
  • What? No mention of Disco Miniature Golfing Queen? An insanely catchy disco-themed song about miniature golf? ABBA would be proud.
  • My Chariot from Greece Lightning has its merits. What other song has the word 'anachronistic' in it?
  • How about the Toy Story-esque "Missing My Nemesis" (possibly better remembered as "The Moments When We Didn't Get Along")? The original in Toy Story 2 made this troper cry... this one not only conjures up that feeling, but also manages to be hilarious AT THE SAME TIME. "But now you're doing battle/With a panda from Seattle"? Come on. That's genius, man.
  • My favorite is Chains On Me.
  • And let's not forget He's A Bully
  • My favorite is Queen Of Mars. Ultra-catchy, probably the best of Ashley Tisdale's singing... and she's just so happy.
  • Did everyone forget about the birthday song that Candace wrote for her mom?!? This troper was crying afterwards it was so beautiful!
  • How is Do Nothing Day not on here!
  • This troper LOVES Busted, especially the The brazilian version, just because I am accostumed to it more that the english one.
  • I'm Lindana And I Wanna Have Fun, anyone?
    • Olivia Olson shows a great voice in that one.
  • "Backyard Beach." Is there anything Ferb can't do?
  • Let's take A Rocket Ship To Space is beautiful, romantic, and like every other song on this page, an incomparable Ear Worm.

Season 2


I got a brand new way of looking at life
An altogether different visual spectrum.
Sometimes photons behave like a wave,
But they're particles when you reflect 'em.


Season 3


We've got chocolate, and vanilla
But we don't have rocky road
It's not that we don't like it -
We left the marshmallows at home (I blame Baljeet)
Baljeet: Hey!

  • Epic Monster Battle from Excaliferb, its basically a homage and parody of Heavy Metal like Manowar or Tenacious D.
  • Aerial Area Rug from the new episode "Magic Carpet Ride". It's even more memorable if you realize that the song references A Whole New World from Disney's animated movie Aladdin. Check it out: Aerial Area Rug
    • Seconded so much. The song is literally uplifting and seeing as it's Danny Jacob's 16-year-old son Aaron singing, his voice is so breathtakingly magical.
  • Dance, Baby! is not only groovy music and makes you want to dance, it is also one of the best moments for the Perryshmirtz fans.
  • "A Real Boy" Who knew Norm could rap?
  • "Phineas and Ferb Interrupted" has the inspirational and amazing "With these Blueprints". It's even more amazing when you see that Doofenshmirtz is singing the same song that everyone else is singing.
  • Jeremy Sets the Record Straight. The man needs more songs.
  • We're Evil!. A great Villain Song sung by countless of villains in a very happy and joyful way.
  • Lonely Vampire is a short goth song sung about how Candace hates being goth (and a vampire). And, as is usual, it is awesome.
  • Frenemies just about sums up the relationship between Buford and Baljeet.
  • As usual, Ferb Latin is catchy and very adorable. AND the three-part counterpoint....oh, my God.
  • How are we missing Zubada?. It's starts as a catchy tune, then it becomes a caveman parody of their biggest hit. And it's AWESOME.
    • Agree so much. YMMV, but there's a certain heartwarming to it when you think of it in the sense that it's a sort of celebration of how great Phineas and Ferb has become, to the point where they can make an entire episode featuring caveman talk and interludes with the creators, and then rap it up with an amazing take on their most popular song. This troper found it an extremely moving Heartwarming Music of Awesome!
  • In Doof Dynasty, we have Way of the Platypus
  • The Perry the Platypus theme song. Wait- you think you've already heard this one before? Have you heard it while he's in a fez?
  • Perry's hat/where is it going?...
    • From the same episode, "Cheesetopia" is well worth a mention.
  • Half a Day from Perry the Actorpus.
  • Hole in my heart ripped ours into a million pieces and sent them to the winds.
  • Drusselstein Driving Test Waltz is, almost undoubtedly, the funniest waltz you will ever hear in your life.
  • It doesn't matter if you are a mother, a father, a son, or a daughter, you will find We Are The Moms to be awesome.
  • "Takin' on the Big Brain". If the song itself isn't awesome enough, Baljeet's dancing is.

Specials and Miscellaneous

Across the 2nd Dimension

  • Across the Second Dimension has some rocking songs of course, like the epically chassis-kicking Robot Riot.
  • Though it's been cut, "Some Mysterious Force" qualifies.
  • Special mention to many people's favorite, Summer (Where Do We Begin?). It will stand the test of time not only for Vincent Martella's wonderfully uplifting vocals and the excited yet soothing music, but also as the absolute be-all-and-end-all representation of summer to a child. Who can go against "Ice cream cones and/Cherry soda/Dripping down your chin"?? That's it. That's summer.
  • Also special mention to "Kick It Up A Notch," which has the be the most epic ending song ever. How epic? It has majorly cool guitar playing by Slash.
    • Who said he did it because he likes the show.
  • A Brand New Best Friend qualifies as the most awesomely charming villain song ever in a Disney movie.
  • Why the hell has no one brought up Brand new reality?!
  • Everything's Better with Perry.
  1. Technically a Season 2 episode, but listed here because all the songs were from Season 1
