As the season two of The Boys kicks off, Billy Joel is favoured!
Amazon Prime Video has been in the news in recent times for promoting such amazing content. The season two of The Boys streams on the OTD platform with many shocking twists and outrageous trills, The Seven is once again taken by Billy Butcher’s team.
The ironic series does not pull away any punches and have been constant about creating the most memorable scenes to music. Eric Kripke the show-runner takes this process very seriously.
He told in an interview with a popular magazine, that the scenes and thoroughly given attention and each detail is tested a number of times before the final cut is decided.
Kripke added, “I’ll sit with the editors and we’ll try dozens of songs for a particular moment until we land on the one that works. And they know me by now, they know to never pitch a song that was recorded after 1983. They know my taste.
“A lot of shows put very current music in their programming and nine times out of ten, that music expires in a year or two. And if you rewatch that show down the road, it’s quite dated. You go ‘oh, that was that song from that summer and no one listens to that song anymore.’
“So, I feel it’s actually a lot more effective to use songs that have already stood the test of time and will feel timeless whether you play them now or ten years from now, and it lets your show feel a little more mythic.
“It makes it feel a little more timeless, I guess.”
