Live from Springfield

Best Simpsons songs

"The Simpsons" has been host to some of the best rockers of all time: Three former Beatles, Mick Jagger, The Who, The White Stripes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, etc., but some of the series' best songs were sung by the cast themselves. \n5. "The Garbage Man Can"\nHomer's reckless spending as sanitation comissioner is portrayed here in a montage so delightful that I temporarily forgot how much I hate Bono.\nKey line: "The sanitation folks are jolly, friendly blokes. Courteous and easy goin'. They mop up when you're overflowing and tell you when your ass is showing." \n4. "We put the Spring in Springfield"\nAn angry mob comes to burn down the burlesque house where Bart works and the ladies of the house have to convince the mob not to burn them down.\nKey Line: "We're the highlights in your hairdo, the extra arms on Vishnu."\n3. "Flaming Moe's"\nHomer invents an alcoholic drink using cough syrup that flames when lit on fire. It becomes so popular, this little ditty gets written about it.\nKey line: "Where liquor in a mug can warm you like a hug. Happiness is just a Flaming Moe away."\n2."We Do (The Stonecutters Song)"\nAt a men's club where they get drunk and play ping pong and have a bad ass theme song. \nKey line: "Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do."\n1. "Monorail"\nConan penned this gem of an episode where Springfield gets conned into building a shoddy Monorail.\nKey line: "The ring came off my pudding can. Take my pen-knife, my good man."\n-Zack Teibloom
