We all know and love the Fox hit show “Family Guy” and if you don’t, you’re probably old, prudish, in possession of a double digit IQ, Certainly the show is a hit because of its great writing, superior voice talent, and clever animation. I believe, however that the music of Family Guy is really the unsung hero.
Recall that the song “Now that You’re Stinking Rich” even won an Emmy award. However, it goes beyond that. The orchestra numbers as well as the smart songs (often even performed by Seth MacFarlane himself proving he is a man of many talents.) I am hard-pressed to think of any other show that takes the time to create as impactful music as Family Guy.
Considering the above, it boggles the mind as to why Fox actually canceled Family Guy twice and keeps the tepid bilge water known as “The New Girl” on the air.
Irrespective of that, if you are a fan of shows complemented by good music, splashy music numbers, need to burn through a few minutes of your work day, want to tune out your spouse, or just want to relive the moments for yourself, checking out the musical numbers on Family Guy probably won’t spoil your weekend. However, if it does, I’m not responsible.
