Since a lot of us here out on the Grid have obtained this lovely work by Daft Punk, I feel it only right to post a piece from the score. ”Outlands” is the epitome of awesome. There are many tracks on the score that may be better than this one, but the use of brass at the end of this one makes me so incredibly happy. If Tron: Legacy ends up sucking, which is looking likely, I’ll at least be able to enjoy it on a purely visual and aural level.
Day 12 - Best Soundtrack/Background Music in a Scene
"We Love You So" by Carter Burwell from Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
It’s another one of those impossible decisions to make. We’ve got over a century of brilliant film scores set to exquisitely crafted scenes that it’s so monumentally difficult to call one the best. One of my favorites has to be this track from Where the Wild Things Are. It’s featured in a key sequence at the end of the film in which Max has to say goodbye to the Wild Things. The most emotional part is when Max and Carol howl at each other. In essence, Max is letting go of his childhood. He’s growing up. He’s maturing. It’s a beautiful scene, but so heartbreaking. Carter Burwell’s score takes the emotionality to new depths. It’s astonishing.
