The Bob’s Burgers Music Album (2017)

Much like The Simpsons (at least back when I watched it) music plays a very significant role in Bob’s Burgers. In fact, it plays an even more significant role, given the singing propensities of multiple characters in the Belcher family. This album collects the featured songs from the show, as well as a few covers of those songs by prominent contemporary bands, in an absurd collection of 112 tracks. I should note that, to the best of my knowledge, the little unique musical snippets that end each episode are not present. If included one could imagine this collection being a lot longer… (Twice as long?)

If you like musical parody, this collection is for you. Though there are a few (deliberately awful) covers of famous songs, most of these song frequents are clever parodies of styles and genres of music (or, in some cases, very specific performers, such as Tori Amos). The parodies are often so dead-on that you kind of which they had written whole songs; they leave you wanting more, which is definitely the better way to go with parodies.

The fragments capture the spirit of the show about as well as anything and this collection is just the kind of thing I was looking for. As a fan of the show who has not managed to sit down and watch every episode, this feels almost like a Greatest Hits version of the show, giving me some of my favourite moments, as well as many I’ve missed, in a pretty great package.

Highly recommended for fans of musical comedy or Bob’s Burgers.
