The Book of Mormon, the Tony Award-nominated smash hit Broadway debut of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, may be the first great musical of the 21st Century. According to Rolling Stone's Peter Travers, the show is a "new gold standard for rowdy fun on Broadway" and the music is "a diabolically melodic and merry blend of Monty Python and Rodgers and Hammerstein."

Since The Book of Mormon is consistently sold out on Broadway and won't hit the road until late next year, the original cast recording CD will be a lot of people's first experience with the musical. The cast and crew came through with an outstanding album that highlights the wit of the lyrics and the incredible tunefulness of the songs while leaving you desperate to score tickets to see the actual show.

The cast recording is currently available in digital stores and will arrive on CD on June 7th, but you can now stream the album in its entirety.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
