I know there are others out there like me, we’re the ones who are just not really into the Superbowl. Football isn’t really my thing. I’m more into figure skating, or soccer, or food. Which isn’t a sport, but it should be. So while North America is gearing up for the big game, I’m gearing up for the big night. We’re well on our way to The Oscars; The Critics Choice are a distant memory and The Golden Globes have come and gone, all that’s left is that coveted golden statue, Oscar. You see, there are tons of Oscar categories that unfortunately, go unnoticed. One of my favourite “under the radar” categories is the Best Original Score. Have you ever taken the time to listen to a score? They are beautiful, and they add so much to a film.
It’s only recently that I’ve begun to notice scores, but I’m so glad that I did. Not only are they stunning, they help me concentrate. Everyone has those times when things have to get serious. You throw your hair into a messy bun and set a plan to get all your readings done, or to reply to all of your emails or to write a couple of blog posts. It’s during those times when focusing is necessary that I turn to film scores to help me concentrate. One of my favourite websites, 8tracks.com has amazing playlists of movie scores. This is one of my current favourites as well as this playlist. Also, as you all know I love Harry Potter so naturally, I love listening the Harry Potter scores, they bring back so many memories.
