Probably the only Black Sails/Outlander crossover we’re likely to get lol but loved getting to hear that wee piece of music, knowing it was written before it was intended/destined to be Outlander’s iconic theme.
Ok guys I'm emotional because something really strange just happened..
I was rewatching 7x10 last night cause y'know feels, and paused the recording and instead of turning the box off like I usually do at night, I just switched the tv off. So tonight after I got home I decided I’d watch the new movie the girl with all the gifts so turned the TV back on and there’s the image of Caryl hugging goodbye where I paused it the night before. So I figured I’d just watch the end of the episode first cause I love it, and then change it over.
It’s nightime, and my brothers over the hall and I don’t want to bother him with the noise so I plug in these cheap crappy headphones that I use into the side of the TV. I hit play, and this is where it gets weird. After watching for a few seconds I thought the headphones had broken because something about the sound was strange. I could hear something, but it wasn’t the usual audio that I’d heard many times over when watching the episode. I rewound it a little bit thinking my box was glitching before I figured out what happened. On my recording of that episode, the dialog has gone, the adr sound effects have gone, it’s all vanished. All that’s left is the score composed by Bear McCreary..
I don’t know if it’s been released officially yet but I’ve watched the scenes where Daryl threatens Richard, the reunion scene, him telling her everyone’s alright, and then the parting embrace, and have listened to just the scoring on all of them and my god it sounds beautiful..But what really struck me listening to it is how deliberately, undeniably romantic this music sounds..you wouldn’t compose something like this for just friends, or a platonic relationship of another sort. This is what two people falling in love sounds like.
I have no idea how this happened. The box has not been tampered with, the settings on the TV haven’t been touched, and the audio on all the other recordings I have is all there and normal. I’m usually not one for superstition however coincidental something may seem, buy I’m really glad this freak incident happened and if I was so inclined, I’d say it’s a good omen :)
