Big Mouth always has some amazing songs in their seasons. What are the best ones?
Today season five of the coming-of-age-in-a-gross-way Netflix animated series Big Mouth is coming to the streaming service. The story of Andrew, Nick, Jessi, Jay, Lola, and the gang continues as they discover the Love Bug and navigate puberty and middle school. One thing the show always does well is musical interludes. They are often the most memorable part of an episode. Odds are you’ve had one of these stuck in your head after watching the show. Here are the five best songs from Big Mouth in honor of Big Mouth’s season five.
- Code-Switching – Season 4, Episode 5
- I Love My Body – Season 2, Episode 2
- Everybody Bleeds – Season 1, Episode 2
- Guy Town – Season 2, Episode 7
- Never Lost In New York City – Season 1, Episode 6
5. Totally Gay – Season 1, Episode 3
The first great song from Big Mouth involves Queen’s Freddie Mercury. When Andrew is questioning his sexuality, he seeks advice from the ghost of Duke Ellington. He connects Andrew with “famous deceased homosexuals” Mercury, Socrates, and Antonin Scalia. Mercury convinces Andrew how great it is to be gay, and Andrew joins in for the second verse. It’s a great Queen-inspired song from one of the first episodes of the series.
4. I Used To Be Her Favorite – Season 4, Episode 8
In Guy Town, Matthew talks about how he’s more than just young, gay, and mean. As the seasons go on, Big Mouth shows much more of Matthew and his struggles. In Season 4, his mom discovers texts that out Matthew as gay. She doesn’t approve, which destroys the wonderful relationship Matthew had with his mother. It’s a beautifully sung song by Andrew Rannells, Matthew’s voice actor and a talented Broadway star in his own right
3. Life is a Fucked Up Mess – Season 1, Episode 9
Everything was going to hell as we got to the end of season one. Jessi’s parents were fighting during Jessi’s bar mitzvah, but that didn’t stop the party. Nick was struggling with growing up and wanting more independence from his mom, Andrew had confessed his love to Missy and been turned down, and Andrew’s dad had struggles with scallops. All difficult issues to deal with, but dealt with better when doing the electric slide.
2. Anything Goes In Florida – Season 3, Episode 4
When on a trip to visit family in Florida, Andrew has a conundrum: does he have sex with his cousin who is seemingly into him? Maury the Hormone Monster convinces him that it is a good idea for one main reason. It’s because anything goes in Florida! From bath salts to cocaine on a dolphin, it is all fair game down in “America’s glory hole”. The song is a rock smash and does convince Andrew to do the dirty with a blood relative.
1. Sex On a Lady – Season 2, Episode 4
Coach Steve, the lovable idiot man-child, was still a virgin. That was the basis of this episode “Steve The Virgin”. When he was nervous, he consulted his own hormone monster, Ricky, for advice. He is going to “chew on her hair, lick on her face, and go number 3 in her lady place”. Honestly, he’s got the right idea. It’s an incredibly catchy song and the best musical number to date in Big Mouth.
