When I was little, VeggieTales and the songs that come from it were my jam. My sisters and I owned several CDs of Larry’s Silly Songs, and we knew them all by heart. Recently, I’ve had conversations with a few friends about favorite VeggieTales songs. To remind everyone of those favorite VeggieTales songs from long ago, here are 15 you definitely never forgot!
1. "The Hairbrush Song"
This song was constantly sung in my house growing up. I mean, with a houseful of girls, it’s not surprising that we were constantly looking for or talking about hair brushes. Fortunately, none of us had to come to the same sad realization as Larry.
2. "The Water Buffalo Song"
Don’t you know, everyone has a water buffalo? With the little props and the interrupted song, this one is classic Larry and his Silly Songs.
3. "I Love My Lips"
Not going to lie, this song gets stuck in my head more times than I would like to admit. Larry jumping around, exclaiming how much he loves his lips, is iconic. Honestly, I want to be as passionate about something as Larry is about his lips.
4. "Promised Land"
I love that the promised land centers around food. To be fair, my promised land would also center around food.
5. "His Cheeseburger"
Every college student can relate to this song since it’s literally just a song all about food. I would sing songs to and about my favorite food any day.
6. "Endangered Love (Barbara Manatee)
Once again, Larry is me; I am Larry. Singing about your favorite soap opera character? I’m so down.
7. "Good Morning, George"
This song is another classic in my house. It was especially relevant in the morning since I’m not a morning person and my dad is. He would wake me up by sing-yelling down the hall, “Good morning, George, how are you?” Needless to say, I was never “feeling fine.”
8. "Oh Santa"
VeggieTales has everything covered, and Christmas is no exception! An ode to Santa where everyone except the IRS person is let in? Sounds like my type of song (also no, I don’t just let robbers into my house, don’t worry).
9. "Song of the Cebu"
The slide projector in this video is my favorite. When was the last time you saw one of those? Not to mention Larry’s picture narration is amazing. He sounds like every person just getting back from an amazing vacation.
10. "Oh No! What We Gonna Do?"
Yikes, Daniel better look out. Also, bad guys singing songs and dancing? Reminds me of West Side Story.
11. "God is Bigger Than the Boogie Man"
Frankenstein sings along with Bob, Larry, and Junior in this song, and if that doesn’t appeal to you then I don’t know what will! Plus, everyone is just so happy in this one.
12. "Dance of the Cucumber"
Dramatic Larry and interpreting Bob, what a killer combo. Plus Larry casually insulting Bob and getting him to translate it is pure genius.
13. "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"
Every lazy person’s dream is to be one of these pirates. Also, I’m thinking about making Larry’s list of things he’s never done a new bucket list. Thoughts?
14. "Stuffmart Rap"
I know this isn’t real rap, but it’s the closest I get to listening to rap music. I’ll take two of everything, please!
15. "Keep Walking"
I love that the pea guards think they’re so scary. I mean, they’re peas!
Brb, off to make my Spotify playlist of all these jams!
