Every ‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’ Song Ranked

16. God, That’s Good! – Mrs. Lovett & Toby

Mrs. Lovett Sweeney Todd

This one sits at number 16 because it’s basically a rehash of an earlier song, except this one’s about pies. It’s okay, but it doesn’t have the charm of its counterpart.

15. The Contest – Pirelli

Sacha Baron Cohen Sweeney Todd

While Pirelli’s outlandish style doesn’t necessarily fit with the aesthetic of the rest of the movie, it somehow manages to work. This song is ridiculous, but it is also notably very fun.

14. Poor Thing – Mrs. Lovett

Poor Thing Sweeney Todd

This whole song is terrifying. The masquerade ball is the stuff of nightmares and not even the catchy tune can gloss over the horrific story.

13. Final Scene – Sweeney Todd & Mrs. Lovett

Johnny Depp Sweeney Todd

This song makes for an excellent finale and its relatively poor slot at number 13 in this list is more of an example of the quality of the rest of the film than a knock on this particular entry.

It actually incorporates many of the songs from the rest of the film, and we truly get a sense of Mrs. Lovett’s panic when Todd realises he has been misled by her.
