David Byrns' "American Utopia" gets my vote....and fun stagecraft to go with a fun listen. *S*
For a good 'weird-out', "Colors From Space" is a slow starter that will make you feel icky about water supplies at the end....;) Been enjoying 'Debris' on the panel. Mulder and Scully updated and confronted with the 'wha....' *L*
I have to second The Queen’s Gambit. Great soundtrack for an absolutely fantastic limited series!! I’ve watched that a couple times. I personally love discovering songs or scores via movies and TV shows. The Leftovers and Euphoria are a couple of my other favorites, especially within context of the show.
Bosch's jazz addiction is fantastic. The TV show shows him playing jazz CDs regularly including Frank Morgan and some other lesser known stuff. The Michael Connelly books include many mentions of Bosch's penchant for vinyl jazz.
The theme by Grace Kelly is perfect for the show.
Also, +1 on David Byrne's "American Utopia". Inspiring! Cheers,
This comment isn't about the music in The Queen's Gambit, but I did watch the last episode 3 times because she's so confident, fashionable, beautiful, and even if she had pushed people away earlier, they all come back to help her in the end. The way the different players whom she beat reacted to her is also interesting, especially Borgov who is a gracious loser. And then she took that walk through Moscow and all the old chess players congratulate her. Good stuff.
Something recent which is full of great music is The Good Lord Bird ,worth watching also.Quentin Tarantino always has great music with my favourite being the scene in Death Proof with the great Lieber and Stoller song"Down In Mexico" sung by the Drifters(its a rerecord of the 1957 original done in 1973).Possibly my favourite Kurt Russell film.
