Song of the Day #2053

Song of the Day: Barry (“Change for the World”) is credited to the members of the funky Brooklyn-based Menahan Street Band, as well as Charles Bradley, on whose album, “Changes“, this track first appeared in 2016. The song also features The Gospel Queens, but it is only the first few notes that we hear as the main theme to this dark comedy crime drama, which ran for four seasons on HBO, from 2018-2023. I recently streamed the entire show and really liked it! Created by Alec Berg and SNL-alum Bill Hader, who stars in the title role, it also features stellar performances from Henry Winkler, Sarah Goldberg, Stephen Root, and Anthony Carrigan, all of whom have received their share of Emmy nominations in the Comedy series categories. Hader, nominated this year, has won twice for Outstanding Lead Actor and Winkler, also nominated this year, has won once before for Outstanding Supporting Actor; he’s up against Carrigan, also nominated this year in the Supporting category. The final season of “Barry” received a nomination this year for Outstanding Comedy Series. Check out the full theme [YouTube link].
