FilmEar Episode 24: Favorites of 2016

In 2016 the Voice reigned supreme in my choices for favorite scores, wither in TV’s Game of Thrones, the Irish band film Sing Street, or musicals both live action (La La Land) or animated (Moana).  That’s not to say there weren’t any scores without them that I didn’t like (just check out John Williams’ The BFG), it’s just that the human voice played a role in most of my favorites.  I play clips and we hear from composers that made my list last year like Michael Giacchino and the wizard Danny Elfman!  We also have a few new comers that I hope to hear from in the future.  All in all it was another good year for scores with an array of films from Arrival to Swiss Army Man, so sit back and listen to my favorites from last year… the year that many of us wanted to forget.
