‘South Park in Concert’ Brings the Movie’s Soundtrack to Life
When the famously raunchy South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut was released in 1999, people expected it to be funny. It was. What moviegoers didn’t see coming, though, was that the film’s many original songs would actually be good–so good, in fact, that one of them, "Blame Canada," would be nominated for an Academy Award. In the years since I first saw the movie, I’ve often wondered why nobody ever did a live action version of it for the stage… until now.
I stumbled upon the above video–which features "Kyle’s Mom’s a Bitch," another one of South Park’s great tunes–this morning while browsing Reddit. It’s from Boston’s Berklee College of Music’s stage production, South Park in Concert.
And it’s awesome.
I’ve included below a couple additional songs from the production. Of course, feel free to check out their YouTube channel for the rest of them.
