BoJack Horseman Theme

So the latest episode of Song Exploder was released  yesterday - it's one of my favorite things for my earballs.  They break down artist's songs - everything from lyrical influences, instruments, themes etc.

The latest was about the theme to BoJack Horseman.  It's pretty awesome. Patrick Carney of The Black Keys explains how he was experimenting in his studio and plugged his Protools click track into the CV of an analogue keyboard and put it through it's arpeggiator to come up with the opening of the track.

He got his uncle involved - Ralph Carney of the Tom Waits band who is an amazing Sax player. Together they shipped the song tracks back and forth and collaborated on this piece not knowing what would come of this composition.

The creators of BoJack Horseman were big fans of The Black Keys and got in touch with Patrick.  The rest is history.  The Carney's little project became the them song to the show.

I've never seen BoJack Horseman.  But after hearing this Song Exploder I just had to see what it was all about.  It's got a favorite actor of mine - Will Arnett as the lead voice.

The theme song ads a ton of weight to this crazy cartoon.
