Monorail.

"Is there a chance the track could bend?"

"Not on your life, my Hindu friend."

Monorail.

That season was the Simpson's peak.

Tough decision, lots of very good left-leaning choices (Canyonero, Amendment Song, etc.). But I'll choose this one from the greatest episode of all time:

Come gather 'round Children, its high time ye learned
about a hero named Homer and a devil named Burns.

We'll march 'til we drop, the girls and the fellas,
We'll fight 'til the death or else fold like umbrellas...

So we'll march day and night by the big cooling tower,
They have the plant, but we have the power...

For full songs I'd have to go with the monorail saong (or "Who needs the Kwik-e-mart") but my favorite out of all of them is when Homer becomes a food critic ("I would even eat a baby deer...").

My favorite too. Great, great episode. Unfortunately the Season 4 box won't be out til Summer 2004 probably and my cable company's stuck on showing eps from the last 3 seasons (and I can't find my tape of the episode).

Hmmm, first one that came to mind is "The Stonecutters Song"

Who holds back the Electric Car?
Who makes Steve Gutenberg... a Star!

That's too bad. The local Fox affiliate here showed LEtS about 3 weeks ago, and it reaffirmed my belief that that and "The PTA Disbands" are the two best. But, like yours, the affiliate had been playing the same newer episodes over and over for about a year or more.

But Monorail does get my nod for best song.

Man I never thought that there were so many good songs from the Simpsons - some great ones listed so far.

Wildcat - I actually e-mailed my FOX affiliate this week about them showing only recent Simpsons episodes 2x per night for at least the last 12 months. They actually replied and said that they only had rights to the last 3 seasons, but starting July 1, they will again have rights to them all (or at least the classic ones again). It may be the same for your affiliate.

Re...the guy who sells me beer,

Fa... I'll drive to get the beer,
So...how 'bout another beer?
La...I'd like another beer,
Ti...no thanks I'm drinking beer,
which brings us back to D'Oh

Mine is by far the entire "Oh Streetcar" medley -

Stella! Stella!
Can't you hear me yell-a?
You're puttin' me through hell-a!
Stella, Stella!

You can always depend on the kindness of strangers
To buck up your spirit, and sheild you from danger
Now here's a tip from Blanche you won't regret
A stranger's just a friend you haven't met!
Streetcar!
