Welcome to the Thursday Tunes! Each week, I will showcase music, whether new or old. Hopefully you will find something that interests you here!
When I was flying back from the UK, I was lucky enough to be flying Virgin Atlantic, which meant I had a personal video screen and a wonderful choice of movies. One of the movies that I watched (and loved!) was The Young Victoria, starring Emily Blunt. The movie was about a young Queen Victoria, and was wonderfully done. One thing that really struck me about this movie, though, was its gorgeous film score. Of course, as soon as I got home, I tracked it down.
Composed by Ilan Eshkeri, The Young Victoria soundtrack is at once regal and vulnerable. It goes perfectly with the movie, telling the story of a young girl struggling to find her place. My favorite track off this album is the piano of Victoria’s Theme, “Down the Stairs,” but I also love many other tracks on this album, including “Buckingham Palace” and Childhood.”
The Young Victoria soundtrack can be purchased from the Amazon MP3 Store for $9.49.
