NOTE: MARCH 2014 - I am experiencing an ongoing problem with my hosting provider (earthlink) that is causing this site to only appear for the first few days of each month.  Since they have been less than helpful in resolving the problem, I'm trying a few other strategies to keep the site live.  Thanks for your patience!  -- Joe G.

What was that song?


Although I have no connection with Malcolm in the Middle other than watching it a lot, I had always had a fondness for the creativity of the music used on the show.  Unfortunately neither the show's official site nor any fan site ever made an effort to list all of it.

I don't have all the answers either, but I have most of them.  I've scoured the shows I have recorded and on DVD and have done my best to catalog as many as possible.  If you know of one I've missed (especially instrumental clips), by all means let me know!  There's also a few I couldn't identify, click on the links to hear a soundclip, see if you can help me out.  And a big thank you to those of you who have emailed me from all over the world with your comments.  As of August I've gotten emails from England, Wales, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy Israel, Canada, Brazil, Singapore, and of course the USA.  Keep 'em coming!

The official show soundtrack is one of my favorite CD's but as this page shows, it leaves a lot out.  However, there's still a few songs that are on the soundtrack that I haven't ever heard used on the show, even after rewatching all the episodes to research this page.

Finally, I'm not providing the music itself via lyrics, streaming, or downloading.  This information is here solely to help you identify the song, which makes it a whole lot easier to locate the CD or download the track (legally of course...).  If you want to hear soundclips, try searching for the song in Yahoo! Shopping or on Amazon.com ... Normally you'll be able to hear sound clips of each song.  Finally, check out the following great site for more info on the music (including sound clips) contributed to the show by They Might Be Giants:  http://songs.lifeisunfair.net/

Enjoy!

[] Brackets indicate the original composer or performer.  Usually this means it was performed by the cast.
*Means I have it but haven't fully reviewed it yet

I should also mention that the following songs are also on the soundtrack, but even after scouring all these episodes, I have been unable to figure out if they were ever used on the show at all:
Fallin' for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
Bizarro - Citizen King
Heaven is a Halfpipe - OPM
Older - They Might Be Giants
Email me if you know of the episodes these were used in, if they were used at all, though i don't think they were.

Both images are copyrighted by Fox, but hopefully Rupert Murdoch won't mind.
