It's ridiculous how much soundtrack writing I get done over the holidays as a result of being on break.

Finally got around to that one today. Fun stuff. That cello rendition of the Godzilla intro was dope.

> “Us Again” from Us Again (Pinar Toprak)
> “Two Friends” from The Wolf and the Lion (Armand Amar)

Was a little nervous at how many on here I hadn't heard, but turns out it's just 15. Seems like a lot I'm missing but I still have time. I actually cannot remember if I actually listened to the Eshkeri score or not. Which tells me it doesn't matter, I may as well have not haha.

> “Gaal Leaves Synnax” from Foundation - Season 1 (Bear
> McCreary)

This score hasn't clicked with me. It's a lot of McCrearyisms, which I'll always be on board for, but feels like something's missing. (Though it's also covers just a handful of episodes I think)

> “Catharsis” from June Again (Christopher Gordon)

YESSSSSS someone's listening to my shouting about this score!

> “The Power of Grayskull” from Masters of the Universe:
> Revelation - Season 1
(Bear McCreary)

I believe Mr. McCreary owes us a second volume...

> “Lord Raiden” from Mortal Kombat (Benjamin Wallfisch)
> “Origins” from Mortal Kombat (Benjamin Wallfisch)

Well this is a surprise haha. Guess I really should give this another shot.

And now, for the scores I must imagine you just haven't heard since they missed your list (After all, everyone agrees with me on the brilliance of The Green Knight, right?)

The Green Knight, Daniel Hart: "O Nyghtegale," "Now I'm Ready, I'm Ready Now"
Wrath of Man, Chris Benstead: "Coffee Frother"
Tom and Jerry, Christopher Lennertz: "Tom and Jerry Arrive," "Wedding Disaster"
Reminscence, Ramin Djawadi (don't remember specific cues)
The Mitchells Vs The Machines, Mark Mothersbaugh (Ditto)
Minari, Emile Mosseri: "Wind Song," "Minari Suite"
Margrete: Queen of the North, Jon Ekstrand
Bad Trip, Joseph Shirley/Ludwig Goransson
Free Guy, Chirstophe Beck
The Last Duel, Harry Gregson-Williams

Wait, if you listed a bunch of stuff from scores I liked, and I had to add ten more that I liked, does that mean...2021 turned out...fine? Good, even?? With two months left in the can?
