How Does School of Rock (2003) Avoid Being a Cliché Crowd Pleaser? w/ Jon Reilly of the Life's But a Song Podcast
Jon Reilly from the Life's But a Song Podcast stops by to talk about Richard Linklater's 2003 film, School of Rock. A movie that has since become a musical on Broadway. There was enough discussion about School of Rock to fill this episode as well as an episode on Life's But a Song, so please check that out as well, with guests Ryan and Nicole.
The soundtrack for School of Rock is a mix of some original tunes from a couple of fake bands (The School of Rock and No Vacancy) as well as music from a bunch of classic rock royalty... and also The Darkness. We dive into the song writers for the fake bands (Warren Fitzgerald, Craig Wedren, and Sammy James Jr), the rock score for the film (by Craig Wedren), and our favorite soundtrack supervisor, Randall Poster, who has supervised soundtracks for Richard Linklater films multiple times.
