I must have listened to OHMSS 100 times while wfh since covid started
Oh, yeah. It's me. Thanks for the mild red flag @mtm :) I'll avoid it. We're almost there. I can't give in now :)>-
Sounds intense and surprisingly...humorous?
I believe there'll be plenty of humour in those scenes, having seen the way Paloma acts around Bond and then Bond
That would be a bit of a first for Bond music, wouldn't it? We've obviously had 'local'-flavoured music several times before as an introduction to a new foreign location (as in DAD, Octopussy, Moonraker etc.), but has that local flavour persisted beyond that before? Such as into an action scene? I can't think of any examples.
I think it could be 'Bond arrives in Cuba' music. I'm guessing from the trailers (and might be wrong) that he arrives by yacht or seaplane, and both of those could work as sort of epic arrivals that this music might work with I guess.
Yeah, I think Cuba is basically going to be "old fashioned Bond" action. Totally bombastic and flashy spectacle like only Bond can do.
I've never been so ready for a new score. Roll on, NNTD!
I guess the weeks where the actual scores have been released have probably spoiled us more ;)
(Just being facetious! :D )
Need to give it a listen! Does a lot of the music in the episode sound like it's from Zimmer?
When they're talking about NTTD yep :-bd
I wouldn't say so, it doesn't sound very Zimmer to my ear (although he's obviously embraced a few styles over the years) but it must be from the score, because there's nowhere else it can be from! :)
If you go to about 30 mins in there's a version playing under Lynch's interview, and then a couple more after that.
I thought I could hear some singing in there; glad I wasn't the only one! :)
I must say, I don't really follow her career or know a huge amount about her, but she does seem very charming in these interviews.
On another subject, the R2 James King interview bit with Paul Epworth really made me respect Skyfall even more as a song: just hearing about its clever construction, its place in the film, the emotions that its chords are designed to provoke- it really is a brilliant piece of work.
Which suggests to me, that classic Bond theme rendition is indeed the track "Back to MI6" on the score.
Excellent pick of cues by Arnold.
Only one I would quibble over is SP, Donna Lucia is the best cue on the album.
I didn't know that the opening track features...
Really? Had no ideia. And when do we think it features?
