The Battle – Gladiator – Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard

I so don’t want to write this.  I’m not ready.  I’m still decompressing from a gnarly 2017 and yet – if I don’t write – if I don’t publish – then nothing happens – and I sooooo want something to happen.

Where’s the Deluxe Version? – Cliff Martinez

I know I normally advocate for sticking with one track and putting it on repeat – but where there’s a little more leeway is when you start to play with movie soundtracks.  We already have quite a few soundtracks on this list but I surprised myself that I hadn’t yet put up something from the brilliant Cliff Martinez.

Time – Hans Zimmer

I’m a huge Hans Zimmer fan – oh sure, his music is just nuts – beautifully put together and always matching the film perfectly – and aside from the fact that we both use the same DAW – what I love is that I made it into one of his scores! 

The Proposition #1 – Nick Cave & Warren Ellis

Oh yeah – I remember this one – it’s a totally killer, visual, “set the scene” kind of track.

The instrumentation is awesome.

Lily’s Theme – Alexandre Desplat

I love writing to film scores – to me they’re the quintessential essay writing music – music that was composed to help tell a story!  We know that familiar music is good for this purpose as it occupies less cognitive space and you can’t get much bigger than the Harry Potter movies.

At Last – Martin Landh

I love this – it feels like the start of a new day – full of hope – full of build – full of light and love and support and just – damn – it’s everything you want in a beautifully uplifting piece of music.

Comptine d’un autre été – Yann Tiersen

Yann Tiersen is one of my favorite pianist / composers – what he did with the score of Amelie was amazing – one instrument – a myriad of emotions – sheer genius.
