I have to say, those are both great intros. I've loved that Vikings intro for a long time.
The True Blood intro is cool too, very American south tune and imagery - I used to watch that show with my ex-gf.

Not exactly a film score but . . .



As for scores:



"Let's keep the debate about poor people in the US specifically. It's the land of opportunity. So everyone has an opportunity. That means everyone can get money. So some people who don't have it just aren't using thier opportunities, and then out of those who are using them, then most squander what they gain through poor choices, which keeps them poor. It's no one else's fault. The end."

The Inspector Morse Theme, thanks for sharing that. It has really good tension, dramatic build-up and release. Excellent.

I need more music like this.

Once you become a nihilist, music like that is no longer effective at moving you. Except when it's used in movies like braveheart. Basically in a universe in which everything is eventually lost to the nebulous void of eternal nothingness, not even the fall of an empire is interesting anymore.

The Witcher (Netflix) [2019]

Success of the popular and beloved rpg/fantasy/adventure video game series by Polish devs CD Projekt Red pushed The Witcher high enough into cultural consciousness to warrant its own Netflix series in 2019. More than just a critical and commercial success, The Witcher video game series (2007 - 2015) was an achievement of national pride in Poland - so much so that Polish Prime Minister Tusk gifted U.S. President Obama a collector's edition copy of The Witcher 2 during a meeting in Warsaw, 2011.

At the heart of the series is Geralt of Rivia, a storied but disdained witcher (i.e. mutant w/ magical abilities, product of ethically dubious alchemical experimentation), a gruff, cynical, but honorable mercenary for hire (coin), lawful neutral in alignment, with a streak of kind-heartedness. Chief among Geralt's friends and companions is the poet and bard, Dandelion, who recounts Geralt's adventures in ballad form and entreats listeners to employ his services, i.e. Toss a Coin to Your Witcher.

I have a strong affinity for tavern songs.

Sing for Me (Lohse Version) [2017]


I Am the One [2014]


My Least Favorite Life [2015]


The Dragonborn Comes - Malukah cover [2011]


I'm also in a far away, fantasy/adventure kind of mood.
