I have a love/hate relationship with both of the films GRUMPY OLD MEN & GRUMPIER OLD MEN (especially the latter, but that’s a whole other post). However, I recently tried to track down Al Silvestri’s beautiful score from the films, when I came across this piano cover on Youtube by pianist Steven Bear. SO many different emotions were stirred after about 20 seconds into it, that I had to stop the video and then keep it muted while uploading this clip. Unfortunately, after a lengthy online search, it seems the score is nowhere to be found! If anyone has any info on this, please message me - I’d be eternally grateful!

I bought the soundtrack for Studio Ghibli’s latest film, When Marnie Was There, in anticipation of its western release next month, and I have to say that it’s absolutely stunning. Muramatsu’s score is heartwarming, nostalgic, emotionally affecting, and lushly orchestrated; it’s the most beautiful listening experience I’ve had in some time. Studio Ghibli films always have lovely scores, but this one is so particularly soulful and enchanting that I feel compelled to share a bit of it with Tumblr. If you like what you hear, please buy this score! It’s available on the iTunes store and it’s an ethereal listening experience.
the worst thing about movies that are famously considered to be scary or tearjerkers is that it attracts a bunch of people who watch them just to play tough and say ‘it didn’t affect me!!’ like wow, okay janet, you didn’t cry at grave of the fireflies, good for y o u
For me, the best Disney score ever. That moment when Simba climbs up the cliff to take his place as king and the drums start kicking in along with the sweeping strings and background vocals – boom! CHILLS.
