Musical Monday: Classico - Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny (#49).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

Now we're headed back into "Don't care for this movie as a whole"-ville. I like the music of Tenacious D, and Jack Black can be great. A student last year actually gave me a copy of this movie (he had two copies or something and wanted me to see it, so he gave it to me. When I tried to give it back, he just said to keep it). So anyway, the movie itself is kinda WTF most of the time, and it just flat-out lost me come the mushroom hallucination scene. But like I said, I do enjoy the music of Tenacious D. Looking back, I'm not sure how much I agree actually putting this so high on the list (even if it's just number 49). But anytime I hear these classic songs now, all I can do is try and refrain from singing along with Black's rather inappropriate lyrics. So here it is, the moment Jack Black meets Kyle Gass. It's so simple and basic, especially compared to most of the other songs/moments in the film. It's just easy fun.

  1. I'm not a huge fan of the film even though I do like Tenacious D. Their live version of their song The Road is sublime.
