SpongeBob Music Editing Over the Years
Season 1: lots of tracks that were only played once, bunch of Hawaiian/surf guitar tracks. They played mostly APM tracks with the occasional original composition tracks.
Seasons 2-3: some of the iconic tracks like Comic Walk, Toomfoolery, Wooden Bear, Sponge Monger, Earl’s Revenge, as well as Wakefield/Carr stings etc. were introduced. A lot of good musical numbers as well.
Seasons 4-5: Some new tracks from the composers, a more balanced amount of APM/original tracks played. Last seasons with really great music editing.
Seasons 6-8: No offense to Nick Carr, but he started to become lazier in music editing here. Unfitting music choices especially in title card sequences. And the music somehow become a little childish. At least there’s some decent new tracks.
Seasons 9-present: Carr is slowly getting better but he still need to not overuse same tracks. Season 9 was still late post-movie like, but eventually when post sequel progresses the APM/original tracks become close to being balanced again. And the new tracks are almost as memorable as early seasons tracks.
When did you think Nick Carr had the best music editing in SpongeBob’s whole run?
