Ra Ra Riot have crafted a song for the new Netflix and Dreamworks series The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show, and it’s a synth-heavy, ‘80’s-inspired tongue-in-cheek track that will have you singing along without even realizing. The song describes the adventurous Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who we can safely assume has something to do with the new cartoon series.
As it turns out, Captain Robert Falcon Scott was a real person despite the fancy name. He was a British Naval Officer and was one of the first Antarctic explorers, until he died in 1912 on a mission. It’s really a tragic story, but the Ra Ra Riot song commemorates him as the fearless hero he really was in a lighthearted way. Could Peabody and Sherman be intervening in time to help the brave captain?
The soundtrack also contains a song by Jukebox the Ghost and several other notable artists. It will be released digitally on Oct. 2 by Lakeshore Records. The first season of the show, which is about a scientist and his smart dog, will arrive on Netflix Oct. 9.
