How I Met Your Mother: The 10 Best Song and Dance Moments
There aren’t many network sitcoms that can boast the breadth and awesomeness of How I Met Your Mother‘s song and dance routines. It’s a tradition the CBS series plans to continue as it kicks off its seventh season this Monday at 8/7c with a big Robin and Barney musical number. Judging by this video preview, another legendary performance is in the works.
To celebrate the show’s latest foray into musical territory, TVLine has compiled a list of HIMYM‘s 10 Best Song and Dance Moments — and there were plenty to choose from!
Fall TV: Catch Up on All the News, Previews and Hot Videos
10. How I Met Your Theme Song
Episode: “Hopeless,” Season 6 | The cast rocks out, performing the show’s infinitely hummable theme song, which was written by creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays. Nice touch knocking over the microphone, Ted.
9. Dirty Dancing With Barney
Episode: “First Time in New York,” Season 2 | Neil Patrick Harris gets superimposed into the iconic ’80s film as Barney recalls the (fake) tale of how he lost his virginity. Check out the wizardry it took to pull off the moment below. Color us impressed by – and nostalgic over – the work of the HIMYM special effects department.

8. “Super Date”
Episode: “Of Course,” Season 5 | Hey, Neil Patrick Harris isn’t the only one in this cast with pipes. After you get past the foreign translation below, Josh Radnor shows off his very smooth voice as he sweeps Barney away with visions of a super date. The old-school movie-musical magic is undeniable.
7. Barney’s Naughty Holiday Songs
Episode: “Little Minnesota,” Season 4 | With each Christmas visit of Ted’s sister, Barney shows off just how much he wants to get into her pants by changing the words of well-known holiday songs. Anybody who can make a Hanukkah ditty sound dirty deserves props.

6. “Stand By Me”
Episode: “Cleaning House,” Season 6 | Two guys who know something about vocals – Ben Vereen and Wayne Brady – duet as Barney’s brother (Brady) finally meets his dad. It’s hard to tell in the video, but the best part of Barney shoving his way into their sweet reunion song is Cobie Smulders desperately trying – and failing – to keep a straight face through Harris’ over-the-top performance.
5. “Best Night Ever”
Episode: “The Sexless Innkeeper,” Season 5 | Marshall’s double date ditty gets the music video treatment in an homage to Extreme’s “More than Words.” In fact, the band’s very own Nuno Bettencourt makes an appearance. To sum it up: Are you free next Saturday?
HIMYM Preview: Kal Penn’s Role, Barney’s Love Hexagon, Robin’s Act of Violence
4. “Sandcastles in the Sand” & “Two Beavers Are Better Than One”
Episodes: “Sandcastles in the Sand,” Season 3; “Glitter,” Season 6 | This pair of follow-up Robin Sparkles songs aren’t quite up to par with “Let’s Go to the Mall,” only because the first song was so awesome, it’s nearly impossible to top. But the presence of Tiffany, Alan Thicke and a surprisingly game James Van Der Beek – remember, this was way before his Funny or Die venture – more than makes up for the temporary foray into semi-serious balladry. Meanwhile, it’s just difficult to listen to “Two Beavers Are Better Than One” — the unintentionally dirty theme song to a children’s show — without grinning. We can’t wait to see what other sparkly treasures Barney uncovers in the future.
3. “You Just Got Slapped”
Episode: “Slapsgiving, Season 3 | Marshall commemorates his third slap with an Elton John-esque song, and Barney brilliantly joins in with some pained “ohs” and “ahs.” As if that wasn’t awesome enough, the show also released a music video of Jason Segel singing the tune in a Vegas-worthy white suit as a butler brings him a cocktail and a fur coat. Then, to top it off, the song got a remix for Slap Bet the board game in Season 5. Fun fact: Harris directed the board game tag to prep for his HIMYM directing debut later that season.
2. “Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit”
Episode: “Girls Versus Suits,” Season 5 | The show’s 100th episode featured a musical number so big, it quite possibly topped Robin Sparkles in sheer scope. With dozens of background dancers, some intricate choreography by Glee‘s Zach Woodlee – please don’t fall off the cab, Neil! – and a fantastic song, the cast and crew bite off quite a challenge and more than deliver on it. Plus, the word “refute” has never sounded better.
1. “Let’s Go to the Mall”
Episode: “Slap Bet,” Season 2 | Was there every any doubt what would top our list? Robin Sparkles’ first appearance came as such an unexpected and hilarious surprise, this is one spoiler we’re glad never leaked. Everything from the lyrics to the dance moves to the ’80s kitsch is so infectious, it makes you want to dig out your old jelly bracelets, find two strangers named Jessica and Tori, and hit the mall.
Bonus: Marshall Dancing
Episode: “OK Awesome,” Season 1 | We just couldn’t bring ourselves not to include this moment from an old Season 1 favorite. Once you see Marshall bust a move, you’ll understand why.
HIMYM fans, did we snub one of your favorites? Sound off in the comments!

10 Things That Happened In Season 1 Of How I Met Your Mother That You Forgot All About
How I Met Your Mother ran for nine strong seasons. Future Ted took viewers on a wild ride telling the seemingly never-ending story of how he met his wife. From 2005 to 2014, fans were on the edge of their seats waiting to find out the mother's true identity.

So much has happened throughout the show's nine seasons that it's impossible to remember every plotline from the series, especially when it comes to season one. Keep reading to find out 10 things that happened in season one of How I Met Your Mother that you forgot all about.
Ted Threw Three Parties For Robin
There's no denying the fact that Ted came off pretty desperate in the early episodes of the show. Not only did Ted tell Robin that he loved her on their first date, but he also throws three parties in a row - just for her.
In the episode "Purple Giraffe," Ted hosted a party hoping that Robin would attend. When Robin couldn't make it, Ted ended up throwing two more parties for her.
Ted And Barney Licked The Liberty Bell
There's never a dull moment with Barney Stinson. Every night has to be "legendary" and this particular night with Barney was actually pretty memorable for Ted.
After a crazy night dealing with airport security, Barney roped Ted into going with him to lick the Liberty Bell. By the end of the episode, future Ted was left reflecting on how Barney never fails to help Ted make the best memories.
Robin Said Booger On Live TV
In this season one episode, Robin realized just how small the Metro News 1 viewership really was. She accepted several dares from Barney to say and do embarrassing things on live TV, which had no repercussions due to the fact that no one was watching.

Robin eventually realized that her job was important regardless of viewership - but not before she fell in a pile of horse droppings on live TV.
Lily And Marshall Found A Cockamouse
The "cockamouse" made its How I Met Your Mother debut in the episode, "Matchmaker. " When Lily and Marshall saw this creature roaming around their apartment for the first time, Lily was sure it was a cockroach while Marshall was certain that it was a mouse, thus the name "cockamouse" was born.
This creature haunted the gang for the entire episode but they eventually got it out of the apartment and it wasn't seen again until the series finale.
Ted Broke Up With A Girl On Her Birthday - Again
Season one Ted was a little more immature then some fans would have liked. Especially in the episode "Return of the Shirt," where Ted selfishly wanted to reconnect with an old flame.
This girl wasn't exactly Ted's biggest fan considering he broke up with her over voicemail on her birthday. Natalie reluctantly agreed to give Ted another chance - just for him to break up with her on her birthday, again.
Barney Worked At A Soup Kitchen
In the gang's first Thanksgiving episode, "Belly Full of Turkey," Robin and Ted found out that Barney worked at a soup kitchen. Barney made it seem as though he voluntarily worked at the soup kitchen year-round, he was even named volunteer of the year.

Of course, it finally came to light that Barney wasn't volunteering out of the goodness of his own heart, but due to court-mandated community service for public urination.
The Gang Almost Met Moby
The gang may have never met Moby, but they did get to meet someone who looked like Moby during their big night out on New Years Eve.
In the episode "The Limo," Ted rented a limousine to try to make it the most special New Years Eve yet. When the gang saw someone that looked like Moby outside the window, Ted offered "Moby" a ride. Unfortunately, this wasn't Moby, but someone named Eric who happened to have a gun.
The Gang Went To Prom
In this season one episode, Lily and Marshall were desperate to hear their potential wedding band play so the gang decided to attend a high school prom.
Of course, the gang couldn't simply attend the prom but had to sneak in. It goes without saying that hilarity and mischief ensued. Barney dressed as a turtle mascot, Ted and Marshall got in a fight with a couple of high school kids, and Robin and Lily kissed.
Lily Abandoned Ted On The Side Of The Road
In the episode "Milk," Lily secretly attended an interview for an art fellowship in San Francisco, knowing her wedding plans would be ruined if she got the fellowship. On the drive to the interview, Lily got a flat tire and called on Ted for help.
RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 10 Girlfriends Of Ted & Barney That We’d All Love To Date
When Ted tried to discourage Lily from attending the interview, she left him stranded on the side of the road. This moment enraged fans as it showed an extremely selfish side of Lily that viewers hadn't seen before.
Ted Learned A Rain Dance
In a desperate attempt to get Robin's company camping trip canceled, Ted learned and performed a last-minute rain dance. Surprisingly enough, the dance worked and the trip was rained out. This also meant that Robin wouldn't be getting together with her co-anchor, Sandy, that weekend.
Ted rushed over to Robin's apartment and announced that he made it rain just for her and the two of them finally got together.
