    Score: The Podcast welcomes Mark Mothersbaugh, frontman of Devo and composer extraordinaire from Wes Anderson films, Rugrats, The Lego Movie, Thor: Ragnarok, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, The Royal Tenanbaums, 21 Jump Street, Hotel Transylvania, and video games including Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and The Sims 2.


    Robert, Kenny and Matt begin the show talking about the theme song Robert Kraft composed for “Who’s the Boss?” And some of their favorite memorable television show themes.


    Then Mark Mothersbaugh joins the show to talk about his start composing music, after working with Devo, with Paul Ruebens and Pee Wee Herman, and his work with Taika Waititi on Thor: Ragnarok to evolve the “Marvel” sound.


    In this week’s Behind the Score, composers discuss the temp score and how it impacts the creation and execution of music, and when it does (and doesn’t) work.


    Then Mark returns to talk about the “post-ironic” era of superheroes and music, and how technology has changed the world’s listening habits and accessibility. Plus, The Simpsons’ parody of “Whip It” and how many parodies Mark’s heard of his hit Devo song and scoring The Lego Movie with a literal fader to switch between “orchestral” and “electronic.” Plus, Mark shares his many musical “orchestrion” inventions -- video available in our show notes below.


    Lastly, Mark and the guys play a “animal movies”-themed edition of Name That Score, where you — yes, you! — could be a winner! Plus, a final question with the great Mark Mothersbaugh!
