[ # ] RIP Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Crazy Ex Girlfriend
April 1st, 2020 under Coronavirus, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Obits






Adam Schlessinger passed away today at the age of 52 from complications of Coronavirus after being on a respirator according to Variety.

You might not know his name, but you know his music. He wrote the Oscar-nominated That Thing You Do for the movie, the Grammy-nominated Stacy’s Mom with his band Fountains of Wayne, the Tony-nominated music for the Broadway musical Cry-Baby and he won the Emmy for writing the lyrics to It’s Just Not For Gays Anymore for Neil Patrick Harris to sing at the Tony’s.

That means he was an EGOT nominee. He also won an Emmy for co-writing the music for Crazy Ex Girlfriend with Rachel Bloom. The two of them were working on The Nanny musical when he died.

Today, let’s honor him by singing his songs like the Emmy nominated Tapped That Ass by rewatching CEG, and smiling!

He is survived by his daughters, Sadie and Claire.
