Song of the Week is something new I want to start on 4therace where every week I’ll share one song that I couldn’t get out of my head for the past seven days. With the intentions to reach out to other music lovers and possibly introduce readers to genres they aren’t familiar with, I hope to start some music based discussions on my blog.
So, for my first ever Song of the Week I would like to introduce the “Main Title” in Clint Eastwood’s film Changeling.
Changeling opens with a black and white shot overlooking a 1928 Los Angeles suburb. As colour slowly swells the screen, the brass and piano of Eastwood’s score began to cry evoking the feel of an old noir film. For a story about a single Mother’s desperate search for her only son, the “Main Title” sets the tone of the film perfectly. It’s a song that I now listen to when I write, relax, am feeling pensive, or want to unwind.
P.S. Go watch Changeling.
