Mark Ronson talks Barbie score with Tonya Mosley on Fresh Air
Take a step into the Barbie soundscape with Mark Ronson and Tonya Mosley on Fresh Air:
On how “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish and Finneas became the film’s emotional center
They saw the film, and I think Billie texted maybe a day or two later — like, “wrote something,” with a smiley face. Such an understated thing for this wonderful song that she was about to send to us.
When we heard it, Greta and I — I think we got it at the same time — we immediately called each other like, “This song is just insane.” I was basically like, “What is wrong with these kids? Why are they so good? They’re so young.” … Andrew and I had been working on a lot of pieces for the more emotional moments, and some of them, oddly enough, weren’t really that dissimilar to what Billie and Finneas’ song was. We were like, “Wow — let’s just make their song this thread that we weave through the film.”
