"Montage" is a song from the episode, "Asspen", which is played over a montage of Stan Marsh learning how to ski. The lyrics of the song describe what a montage is and why it is often used as a device in films, to the rhythm of 1980s pop.
The day is approaching to give it your best
You've got to reach your prime!
That's when you need to put yourself to the test
And show us the passage of time
We're gonna need a montage (Montage)
A sports-training montage (Montage)
And just show a lot of things happenin' at once.
Remind everyone of what's goin' on. (What's goin' on?)
And with every shot, show a little improvement
To show it won't take too long
That's called a montage (Montage)
Even Rocky had a montage (Montage)
In any sport, if you want to go
From just a beginner to a pro
You'll need a montage (Montage)
a simple little montage (Montage)
Always fade out (Montage) into a montage (Montage)
If you fade out it seems like a long time (Montage) has passed in a montage (Montage)
- This song was also used in the puppet-film Team America: World Police, which was also created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
