Ryan Murphy has yet to return fully to his musical roots since Glee, but that doesn't mean his shows don't have stellar soundtracks. Politician, his new Netflix satire, certainly does and not only that, but it stars a Broadway alum: Ben Platt, who plays Payton Hobart, viciously ambitious high schooler with his heart set on someday becoming president. Murphy first noticed Platt while attending a performance of Dear Evan Hansen. He was very effusive, he was wearing this beautiful fur, and he say, you re fabulous. We 've got to work together, Platt recalled in an interview with Vogue, thinking maybe he would be offered part in American Horror Story. Instead, Pitch Perfect actor was given a much bigger role. To me, he is a once - in - time talent, sort of like the male Barbra Streisand actor, singer, dancer, complete performer, Murphy told Vogue. I think he's new version of what a leading man can be. Of course, Murphy had to take advantage of Platt's musical talent for Politician: soundtrack includes original songs by him, Zoey Deutch, and Ben Barrett. It also includes music from CHVRCHES, Tama Impala, LCD Soundsystem, and Sufjan Stevens. However, there are just as many classic tunes from singers like Streisand, Donna Summer, and Shirley Bassey, if not more. Kevin Parker is the mastermind behind Australian outfit Tame Impala, whose latest album was 2015's Currents. Earlier this year, Parker released two singles off band's upcoming album Borderline and Patience. Have you dabbled in influences in the past? I 've been unafraid to go there all way this time, musician told Rolling Stone. To challenge what Tame Impala is in terms of how wide it can go. While viewers may be more familiar with the LeAnn Rimes version, it was Boone who originally recorded You Light Up My Life. The song is from the 1977 film of the same name, which stars Didi Conn. I can't say how many weddings 've 've sung that song at, Boone told Entertainment Weekly in 2017. 've 've had a lot of DJs over the years saying, I get so sick of playing that record. Remember when Sufjan Stevens vowed to write an album based on each state? Chicago is from his 2005 Illinois - theme album, which follows 2003's Michigan. But fans shouldn't hold their breath for other 48 states. The whole premise was such a joke, Stevens told Paste back in 2009, and I think maybe I take it too seriously. I started to feel like I was becoming clichA of myself. Track itself, however, has stood the test of time.
