Okkervil River “What Friends Do” – Listen

Okkervil River’s latest track What Friends Do is the theme song to Amazon Prime’s animated holiday special “Click Clack Moo: Christmas At The Farm”. Breaking Bad it’s not. It’s based on the book series from Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin and features various voices including SNL’s Pete Davidson. Okkervil’s Will Sheff explained to Stereogum: “When I was preparing to write the theme for Click Clack Moo I listened intently and repeatedly to my favorite kids’ songs by writers like Joe Raposo and Harry Nilsson. There’s something about writing songs tailor-made for kids, I noticed, that brings out something really tender and urgent in adults. You start thinking a lot about what the one simple and sincere message you’d like to pass on to a kid might be.” Like, stop throwing your dirty socks under the bed.
