Throwback Thursday: Coming-Of-Age Comedy ‘Superbad’, Score By Lyle Workman

Somehow Workman managed to gather together a virtual super-group of jazz and funk artists to perform his score, including bass legend Bootsy Collins, drummer Clyde Stubblefield and rhythm guitarist Catfish Collins. It’s nothing like a traditional score, instead playing more like a succession of rock-funk instrumentals, but in and of themselves, the pieces are great. – Jonathan Broxton, Movie Music UK

This week, we take a look at acclaimed coming-of-age film, Superbad starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen and Bill Hader, from the producers who brought you The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Talledega Nights! Directed by Greg Mottola (Daytrippers, Adventureland), the film earned 11 film awards and 24 nominations including the ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards’ “Top Box Office Films” win for Composer Lyle Workman (“Love” on Netflix, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Stand Up Guys, Yes Man), and two Critic’s Choice Award nominations for Best Comedy Movie and Best Young Actor for Michael Cera.

13 Songs For Alternative Superheroes

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend.  The film from Marvel Comics stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, who, as his name implies, is one of the world’s Most Finest Superheroes fighting evil and corruption.  Not all heroes are super.  Bad supers aren’t trying to save the world. They’re just trying to make their little corner of it better.  Sometimes, as we learn in the film Superbad, the greatest hero you’ll ever know is already standing right beside you; your best friend. Boop.

Lakeshore Records: Bad Supers - 13 Songs

In Super, Rainn Wilson stars as Crimson Bolt, a delusional man on mission to save his wife from an evil drug dealer. In My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Uma Thurman plays G-Girl, a heroine-scorned who strays so far from justice that she nearly becomes a super-villain. In Crank, Jason Statham plays the unstoppable Chev Chelios, a true anti-hero who wades through the criminal underworld powered by nothing but epinephrine and a desire to hear his girlfriend pick up the goddamn phone.  Here’s a playlist to celebrate those who stumble, trip, and fall into greatness – heroes who lose their way or have strange ideas about what constitutes a good deed.
