The Book of Mormon is expectedly raunchy and vulgar, given it was the brainchild of the creators of South Park, but the show hit Broadway with critical acclaim rather than controversy. The Book of Mormon commented on religion, America's relationship with the rest of the world, and the complicated morals of mission trips. However, the show was never mean spirited - so much so even the Church of Latter Day Saints was largely unperturbed by the production! The Book of Mormon soundtrack is hilarious, but what are its best songs? Help decide below! Here, you'll find all Book of Mormon songs ranked by your votes!
"Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" and "Hasa Diga Eebowai" are, by far, the most sardonic and twisted songs in the Book of Mormon soundtrack listing. The former is about a Mormon missionary dreaming he's descended into eternal flames for his misdeeds. The latter shows Ugandan natives spouting hate towards God, serving as powerful commentary about how missionaries can be well meaning, but naive about the challenges people face overseas. There is also the fan favorite "I Am Africa," a hilarious shot at both Bono and Western ignorance in general.
