—AR, “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?” season 2, episode 13, There’s a reason Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t evoke nu-metal very often, but this one gets some mileage out of the dissonance between subject matter and musical style, particularly Bloom’s all-in scream delivery of, “Love is patient love is kind.” —GK, “All Signs Point to Josh ... or Is It Josh’s Friend?” season 2, episode 3, As necessary as this sex-positive song is, it was undeniably more effective when teased throughout several episodes in perpetually interrupted snippets. “Where’s the Bathroom?” is a tour de force, a master class in guilt-tripping sold by Tovah Feldshuh’s incomparable and unstoppable gusto. —AR, “I Hope Josh Comes to My Party!” season 1, episode 3, This pitch-perfect boy band parody is so low on the list only because there are so many fantastic deconstructions of Rebecca’s obsession with Josh to come, and the bar is high. The musical numbers are all over the board (in a really good way) … —AR, A dream ballet is a classic movie musical trope, but this one is a pretty flat joke that goes on way too long. —AR, The secret of Darryl songs is that they should never work when sung by other characters, but all of them somehow manage to work wonderfully when applied to Darryl. —GK, Paula’s sultry torch song isn’t the deepest character examination you’ll ever get, but its rhyme structure is full of winking jokes in classic musical theater style. 8 on this list or you can just check the YouTube comments on “Heavy Boobs.” Bloom has said that she deliberately shot the bouncy video to look as painful as possible and subvert the male gaze — but the comments are filled with men boasting about watching the video one-handed. (Also: She gets to play a sentient cactus.) Great ’80s hair, though, gang. But what takes this song from good to great is the fluid choreography, which has Foster and Bloom pantomiming their way through a gorgeous dance routine inspired by disappointing sex. Health experts say you should avoid optional trips whenever you can. Instead, it’s an impeccably crafted piece of infectious joy, and a perfect example of everything this show does best. —AR. It’s fine. Anyone can edit the wiki to add information, photos, or videos. Too real!”. The result beautifully brings psychological depth to the romantic comedy best friend trope, and Champlin makes every moment of it shine. About that life-sized cardboard cutout of Ana de Armas getting thrown out in front of Ben Affleck’s house …. With its Bridget Jones-esque torturous date night prep juxtaposed against a breathy R&B number, the song let us into the show’s winking participation in patriarchal bullshit. Now they’re getting arrested. Any list of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s best songs would be incomplete without it, and while Greg Serrano may have escaped the Cov, this song will never abandon us. —CG, “I Never Want to See Josh Again.” season 3, episode 5, Rebecca’s mournful “My relationship with her was my first failed romance” beautifully captures the tortured dynamic she’s developed with her mother — but there will be later songs that handle it even better. But what makes it great is Rebecca’s boundless belief that if she can only perform the right kind of effortless cool-girl femininity, Josh will surely fall madly in love with her forever. With new virus variants spreading, it’s probably time to stop. For the truly demented “I wanna kill you and wear your skin like a dress / but also have you see me in the dress / and be like, ‘OMG, you look so cute in my skin!’” breakdown alone, this song deserves every honor we can give it. Detractors will argue that Rebecca’s power anthem of “self-indulgent self-loathing” doesn’t have the witty rhyme structure or clever wordplay of other songs on this list, but for sheer force and power, it can’t be beaten. —CG, “Josh Just Happens to Live Here!” season 1, episode 1, The magic of this scene and song isn’t that great Richard Gere rhyme — it’s the way it uses the setup of a traditional lover’s duet to make clear that the real endgame pairing of this series is a One True Friendship between two women. —CG, “Josh and I Go to Los Angeles!” season 1, episode 13, Rebecca stirs her community to a Les Mis-y rebellion that’s far more interesting in theory than in practice, but at least it contains a B.J. The moment when he comes out to a nonplussed workplace in a rousing Huey Lewis tribute is a perfect example. (Do not @ us on Twitter.) —AR, “That Text Was Not Meant For Josh!” season 1, episode 11. If Lambert has a thin, almost girlish voice, she's hardly girly -- there's an edge to her delivery that leaves no doubt that she possess nerves of steel. Starring: Rachel Bloom, Vincent Rodriguez III, Santino Fontana. Rebecca’s delight speaks for all of us. —GK, It was hard to imagine that the show could come up with a more fitting theme song than the one it originally had, but damn if this second iteration didn’t pull it off! —GK, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge.” season 3, episode 1, The season three opener left us in no doubt that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was back and as savvy as ever about the gender divide. —CG, We knew Heather was cool before this song, but this is where we find out just how cool. For proof that democracy is broken, look no further than the fact that “You Stupid Bitch” was ranked No. —AR, “Josh’s Girlfriend Is Really Cool!” season 1, episode 2, The Valencia in Rebecca’s head gets funnier and funnier the more specific her smug preening gets. It works nicely as a one-size-fits-all critique of the commodification of female empowerment, with some gleefully tweaked details in both the lyrics (“wear fake eyelids just for yourself”) and the visuals (the skeevy Terry Richardson doppelgänger in a “Male Gaze” shirt). —CF, Scott Michael Foster’s Nathanial has only had a couple of solo songs so far, both trading on his would-be confident-hot-dude persona and a lot of mugging for the camera. —CF. —CF, Songs about UTIs probably shouldn’t exist, but if they have to, we’re glad that this one does, because it’s hilarious. And that got us thinking: Which other songs could be used to annihilate an ex? This bop of a chorus line number is straight up adorable, even as it sneaks in telling lines like Rebecca insisting that she “has no underling issues to address / I’m certifiably cute and adorably obsessed!” But even if none of that were true, this song would be dear to our hearts for that perfectly weird final beat of Rebecca blinking at the camera in wide-eyed glee just a little too long. I sing this to myself at least once a day. (“You’re looking healthy, and by healthy, I mean chunky.”) It’s exactly the kind of song that keeps us coming back to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and as such, it deserves this top spot on our list and in our hearts. But the song’s best gift is its “don’t think about it too hard, too-too hard” breakdown, a glorious amalgam of the sort of irresistibly nonsensical earworm that’s endemic to bubblegum pop, and the mockery thereof. —CG, Oh, George. And here, as she shimmies menacingly across the stage in her “Rose’s Turn” number, she at last releases all of the pent-up rage she’s been carrying in an explosion of angry jazz hands and sardonic patter. —Genevieve Koski, “When Will Josh and His Friend Leave Me Alone?” season 2, episode 4, In theory, a makeover montage as cheer routine sounds fun, but in practice, this song is just monotonous at a level that even Rachel Bloom’s chipper delivery of “I had a stroke!” cannot salvage. In honor of the occasion, a group of Vox culture writers has joined forces to rank all 101 songs, from worst to best. —AR, “I’m Going to the Beach With Josh and His Friends!” season 1, episode 9, The perpetual refrain of “West Covina” throughout season one gets 100 times more fun when Josh is involved. It tells the story of Rebecca Bunch, a driven New York lawyer who throws away her career to follow an old crush to his suburban SoCal town and becomes a strip mall lawyer. In this, his “My Way”-ish goodbye to Rebecca, we see both Greg and the show at their best: clear-eyed, soulful, and willing to leave you wanting more. —CF, As Rebecca tried to seduce her seemingly terrible boss, Nathaniel, in a desperate attempt to find “the bitch that lies beneath,” she finally threw caution to the winds with “Strip Away My Conscience,” a sexy Chicago-style striptease packed with double entendres. one of the lowest-rated shows on television, Donald Trump just issued a surprise pardon for the man at the center of an epic fight between Google and Uber. The most bizarre thing about Trump’s farewell speech is how normal it sounds. but largely forgettable. —AR, This cheeky song has the distinction of being the only one on the show sung by an incorporeal object — a devious, forest-fire-spreading, mystical trickster who appears unto us in the shape of a doo-wop-crooning would-be Rat Packer. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Theme" TV theme songs that describe a show's plot went extinct with scrunchies, which is why this furiously paced 34-second show tune is such a … Dark HorseKaty Perry. —CF, “Josh and I Work on a Case!” season 1, episode 12, Rebecca’s unblinking enthusiasm make her an ideal Music Man con woman. Here are our top 17 -- tell us which you like best, or if we missed any of your favorites. Paula spent all of season one acting as Rebecca’s id, initiating all of the petty, vindictive shenanigans that Rebecca claimed she wanted no part in but secretly craved, the way the best friend traditionally does in a romantic comedy. —CG, This song, which encapsulates Rebecca’s desperate need to be liked, was an early, hilarious sign of what was to come (with a bonus, perfectly manic turn from Ava Acres as kid Rebecca). So this one, which shows off Champlin’s range while poking fun at Paula’s love of telling Rebecca exactly what she should do, was and remains a welcome treat. Getting Over Jeff. This song levels up brilliantly — from the fact the plane has a dream ghost (in the form of Rachel’s therapist, Dr. Akopian) to the fact the plane is carrying multiple airplane dream ghosts, played by the powerhouse trio of Michael Hyatt, Amber Riley, and Ricki Lake. —CG, “Where Is Josh’s Friend?” season 2, episode 1, Rebecca and Josh’s awkward, bubbly chemistry usually serves their story well, but it can’t quite carry a steamy number about uncontrollable sexual passion. “We Tapped That Ass” recaps Rebecca’s enthusiastic sex life with both Greg and Josh in excruciating, hilarious detail, with Santino Fontana and Vincent Rodriguez grinning up a storm. —CG, This Shakira-inspired number has a solid claim to the best one-liners of any song on the show. —CG, “Who Needs Josh When You Have a Girl Group?” season 2, episode 6, This slow jam is Heather’s first full-length solo, and giving her laid-back cool a showcase breathes fresh air into the cast dynamics. 2015 TV-MA 4 Seasons TV Comedies. —AR, Of all the “Josh: he’s kinda dumb” songs, this is by far the catchiest and the most musically sophisticated. That definitely works to a point in “I Go to the Zoo” — particularly as Nathanial points and winks at various zoo denizens as if they were all patrons at the hottest club — but the talk-sing lyrics aren’t quite sharp enough to extend the song’s silly premise over two and a half minutes. It’s hard not to nod in recognition when she demands to know whether there’s a secret manual on how to be a normal person that everyone has but her — or to keep from cringe-laughing when she growls, “I know you have the manual, Patrick; I know it’s in your truck, Patrick!” —CG, This song was the perfect introduction to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s pervasive and cheerful excoriation of gender roles and the ridiculous societal expectations placed on women. “The Villain in My Own Story,” in which Rebecca questions herself and everything she’s done up to this point, proved once and for all that it knew exactly what it was doing. Here’s what to know. —AR, “I’m So Happy That Josh Is So Happy!” season 1, episode 7, Rebecca’s spot-on turn at a sultry French torch song is hilariously over-the-top, while hinting at her very real problems with coping mechanisms. —CF. —CG, “My Mom, Greg’s Mom and Josh’s Sweet Dance Moves!” season 1, episode 8, This pastiche of bland, aggressively multicultural, over-corporatized, snowless California Christmases makes for a fun, forgettable holiday jingle. Rebecca gleefully urging her imaginary audience to sing along with her, crowing, “Yes, I deserve this!” and wallowing in mocking her own self-hatred is one of the darkest and most revealing moments of the whole show, and it sets the stage for her rock-bottom moments in season three. —CF, “I’m Back at Camp With Josh!” season 1, episode 10, Rebecca’s camp letter confession is equal parts sweet and embarrassing, but it’s 100 percent Rebecca. Josh's Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge. ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’: 8 Favorite Songs Rachel Bloom, Jack Dolgen and Adam Schlesinger, the trio responsible for the show’s original songs, highlight their favorites. In this, his initial pitch to Rebecca, he upsells his underdog status, and even if it’s clear that Rebecca isn’t it buying it, by the time he’s through tap-dancing his way into our hearts, the rest of us totally are. After many rounds of voting, debating, and horse trading, we finally settled on a definitive, inarguable, and absolute ranking. —AR, In a dating age defined by apps and sketchy online profiles, there may be no more relatable line in Crazy Ex’s entire repertoire than “Hey, sexy stranger, come back to my place (and please don’t be a murderer).” As a bonus, this early-days pop song is catchy as hell, and includes a breakdown about said sexy stranger’s balls, which “smell so much worse than I feared.” Lyrical dexterity at its finest. —AR, “Josh Is Going to Hawaii!” season 1, episode 14, In the first season, there were so many times when watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend became a practice in wondering if the show was quite self-aware enough to understand how destructive Rebecca’s actions could be. —CF, “JAP Battle” takes a very tired trope — “white people rapping ironically” — and pokes fun at that very fact by aiming this rap battle at a hyper-specific target: two overachieving “Shebrews from Scarsdale.” The ridiculous study of “Jewish American Princess” culture is packed with smart rhymes, unexpected character building, and Yiddish wordplay — a confusing combination on most any show but Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. —CG, “Paula Needs to Get Over Josh!” season 1, episode 18, Sure, the climactic season one finale song is a little cheesy, but as sung by actual Disney princess Lea Salonga, it’s the perfect gushy, melodramatic capper for a Rebecca-Josh epiphany. The lyrics are razor-sharp throughout (“We’re gonna braid each other’s hair / then cut each other’s braids / connect the braids to build a rope / to hang all of Congress”), escalating to a hilariously antagonistic “roll call” that introduces “The Brainy One” (head of censorship and mind control), “The Cool One” (puts drugs in the water supply), and “The Sexy One” (czar of torture). (Get outta here, Steve Jobs!) There are so many ways this song could have gone wrong. Each episode features a few songs written by Rachel Bloom, Adam Schlesinger, and Jack Dolgen. Literally the only bad thing to say about “Remember That We Suffered” is that it ends approximately three minutes too early. This song appears in the 4th episode of the TV musical show “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”. “A Diagnosis” is a joyous “I want” song that wouldn’t feel all that out of place in a show like Next to Normal, and it represents a valuable move forward in Rebecca’s endless one step forward/two giant steps back journey. Gettin’ Bi. The use of the reprise tells us how fully Heather’s got a read on Greg, while the music underscores how totally not broken up about this breakup she is. —GK, The show’s decision to focus closely on Rebecca’s mental health instead of shrugging and saying, “She’s crazy!” was one of the smartest things it could have done in its third season: As soon as Rebecca had an actual diagnosis to work with, her world got a whole lot more grounded and a lot more interesting. —AR, This Rebecca Bunch signature move is an early Bunch 101 on the fundamental contradictions of her character. “That Text Was Not Meant for Josh!” season 1, episode 11, This tiny song suffered from being a part of a cringe-inducing storyline. Zigga-zow! —AR, It’s rare for reprises to distinguish themselves from the original as strongly as this number manages to do, by inverting Paula’s unforgettable excoriation of Rebecca and applying it to Rebecca’s relationship with Josh, which the would-be Mrs. Chan well and truly burns to the ground here. We’re not mad about it. Miranda Lambert knows exactly who she is as a musician, and nowhere is that clearer than how the three covers here -- Gillian Welch co-wrote "Dry Town," Carlene Carter and Susanna Clark penned "Easy from Now On" (which Emmylou Harris popularized), and Patty Griffin authored "Getting Ready" (also heard on her own 2007 album, Children Running Through) -- blend seamlessly with Lambert's eight originals. Review: The Top 27 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' Songs, Ranked The CW's romantic-comedy-drama-fantasy-musical just aired its series finale, after four seasons and 157 original songs. Sure, she plays the crazy ex-girlfriend of the title track -- stalking her beau and his new girl to the local bar, which she promptly starts tearing apart -- but that's hardly the extent of her hell-raising here.
