Clausen’s contribution to the show is tremendous, and he’s beloved among its fans. Beyond scoring the show, Clausen has created the music for all the show’s songs after writer Jeff Martin left after season four. He’s been nominated for an Emmy for (take a deep breath) “Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?” “We Do,” “Señor Burns,” “We Put the Spring in Springfield,” “You’re Checkin’ In (A Musical Tribute to the Betty Ford Center),” “Ode to Branson,” “Everybody Hates Ned Flanders,” “Vote for a Winner,” and “Always My Dad.” In total, he has earned 27 nominations for the show, with two wins.
Admittedly, I haven't watched the show in at least 10 years, but I have to think that maybe it's not as "fresh" as it used to be.

How can any show be fresh after decades?
