Day 26 – A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument

I can play a lot of bits of songs, not really full songs. I can however play the main piano part from this:

It’s a really simple piece, and I’d show you a video I made of me playing it if my internet were not so gosh darned slow right now.

I love Lost, it’s true, and the music is pretty great in that show. This piece is one of the most memorable melodic themes, recurring throughout the show to reflect on the deaths of major characters. However, the best use of original score in Lost is the theme Locke’d Out Again playing during the climactic scenes from both John Locke-centric Season 1 episodes “Walkabout” and “Deus Ex Machina”, which I won’t spoil, because they’re two of the best five minute stretches of dramatic television I have ever seen. It’s all Terry O’Quinn and Michael Giacchino’s score.

Anyway I digress. This is the one I can play. Michael Giacchino’s Life and Death, from the soundtrack to Lost. Okay?
