Along with series like the original Office, The IT Crowd, and Peep Show, there's another breakthrough BBC comedy that may have been short-lived but is deeply loved to this day. Those less familiar may only know of Old Gregg, who went from character to early internet meme, but The Mighty Boosh, brainchild of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, is a whirlwind of quick dialogue, outlandish art design, and moments of musical genius that deserves a watch by anyone who's a fan of offbeat comedy. Those musical moments are the focus of this article, with my top 10 songs from the series listed below.
