From the sounds of the soundtrack for South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, when Trey Parker and Matt Stone decided to take their vulgarian cartoon to the big screen, they decided to take to heart Milhouse's immortal words to Bart: "Let's go crazy, Broadway style!" And so the film's original songs parody the Great White Way and movie musicals, forms that South Park's core audience ignores -- they prefer rap and metal, usually mixed together. That's what the second half of the record is all about: rap interpretations of songs from the film, along with a couple of songs that were simply inspired by the film. Marc Shaiman has helped Parker turn in some particularly wicked satires, particularly with "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" and the opening revue, "Mountain Town," not to mention the Michael McDonald showcase, "Eyes of a Child."
