The “yacht rock” style song, performed by Ambrosia singer Rick Cowling, was written and recorded by Adam Blau, with lyrics by You’re the Worst EP Stephen Falk. Throughout the episode, the song serves as an emotional anchor for PTSD-suffering veteran Edgar Quintero, portrayed beautifully by Desmin Borges.
The Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, with a mission “to honor and empower them as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs.”
In the episode, the song is performed by the fictional band Starlight Tidepool, which may or may not feature its composer incognito as one of the members… see if you can guess which one, below.
