Yes, I’d bet on “Weirdos Make Great Superheroes” making it before the others.
It’s a nice moment for the character. Plus, Sara is the biggest name and was nominated last year for co-writing the Tonys opening number.July 1, 2020 at 3:50 am #1203560433
Excited! One of my favorite days on the awards calendar.
So glad that we’ll finally get to see the song submissions!June 17, 2020 at 5:39 pm #1203539463
Nothing from Apple yet? I’m curious to see which songs they submitted for Central Park.May 28, 2020 at 3:56 pm #1203506240

New contenders via Apple’s Central Park:
Nothing in that Bob’s Burgers precedent prepares you, though, for just how good and expansive the songs in Central Park are. The musical numbers, all produced by Frank Ciampi, hail from a varied who’s who of Broadway and Broadway-adjacent composers. In the second episode, the remarkable empowerment anthem “Weirdos Make Great Superheroes” was written by Sara Bareilles. “Rats,” from the third episode, has synth-y ’80s power-ballad touches and was written, naturally enough, by Cyndi Lauper. And it isn’t even like the songs from the A-listers are outliers. Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure wrote for multiple episodes; their anthem “Own This” from the premiere, bringing together the entire cast for Central Park jubilation, is a glorious earworm featuring counter-melodies and complex harmonies and I can nearly guarantee you’ll want to rewind and watch again immediately.May 23, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1203497507
