Musical Monday: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog - Laundry Day (My Freeze Ray) (#14).

[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.]

I can assure you this isn't the only song from this short film on this list. But I included this one because it's a good introduction to the character and his main struggle. He wants to be a villain and rule the world, but he's also a human with needs and is in love with a woman who doesn't notice him and who he has trouble even talking to. Not to mention it's a catchy song with some clevery writing and good cinematography to go along with it.


  1. The little shoulder dance is my favorite part of this.

  2. Freeze Ray? Really? I like the song, but it isn't even in my top 3 for the short. Glad to know Dr. H will make another appearance down the road.

  3. Yeah... what can I say, I dig it. Probably because I can sympathize with him on talking to the opposite sex (like the starting to talk and then mumble thing). And watching from afar (in a non-creepy way). And I like the bit through the dryer doors.

    But the other one that's on this list... it's far and away my favorite.
