In our little TV package we have 'Music Choice' and lately we've been listening to the Movie Score channel or whatever they call it. I don't notice the scores all that much when I'm watching a movie. I'm usually caught up in plot/characters/monsters/explosions/keeping my 3-d glasses on. But now I know movie scores are gorgeous! The swelling strings, the plaintive brass. They are crafted to manipulate your emotions and they do. Boy Howdy. Just listen to Elmer Bernstein's thrilling score for To Kill a Mockingbird. Perfect rainy day music.
