Music* We start off (and end) with You by Nils Frahm.* We’ve got Krolock on the Sledge from Komeda’s great, great score to The Fearless Vampire Hunters.* Jett Rink Theme from Dimitri Tiomkin’s score to Giant.* A little loop of Bandstand, from Thomas Newman’s Little Children score.* And Opening, the vibes pieces, by Nathan Bartlett (making a return appearance).* Oh! And Meet the Neighbors from Marcelo Zarvo’s score to the lovely, Please Give. Which has become the go to soundtrack for “Some borderline scam artist has a crazy idea,” here on the Memory Palace.
