What film score theme/melody is going through your head right now?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else kind of wish Shore carried this through the trilogy as a B-phrase to the Fellowship theme? Or at least wrote a good concert suite around it!

 

That tender release at 3:30 gets me especially.

I've always kind of thought of that passage as one of the "pure" EE extensions, meaning not something he originally conceived when developing the entire score, for a scene that was in the film for a long while before being cut towards the end.  The look of the scene and the rather unusual orchestration of that passage makes me think it was a scene cut early, and then only grabbed from the archives, reinstated and finished when the EE was greenlit, and it could have been one of the last passages HS had to write during post production of the EE.  Just a hunch.

 

It is nice music, though!

Could anyone bring up examples of this kind of finish?

 

Those last 4 strikes in that particular rythm are what I'm looking for, preferably with a full orchestra, wholesome brass forefront.

 

From the first time hearing My First Bus Drive, I thought it would make a great finisher if I'd ever use it as the finale of a suite. (It'd fit at 7:24 here:)

 

 

EDIT: Heh, looks like I'm not the first to think this way!

 

Not precisely what I'm thinking of, but damn close!

March of the Resistance.  Plays in my head as I walk from class to class.

 

That's funny, I was just whistling it (counterpoint included 😛) today when walking from the sub to work. That along with Rey theme.

 

PS : for my fellow french speaking members : is it how we say "siffloter" in English ?
