I was watching the animated Beowulf recently and thinking that the theme from that movie would make an awesome theme for Thor.

Manowar has an album called "Sign of the Hammer" that has a few songs about Thor and ilk.

Specifically this one.

I just realized he did the score to Needful Things, which is one of the greatest ever(the movie was ok, but nothing too special). But the score to that film is in my all time faves. I'm on board with Doyle now.

Yeah that could work in the same way Armstrong worked for TIH, a very unconventional choice.

Anyone but Williams and Elfman to be honest.

This isnt aimed at you Hypestyle as this viewpoint has been building inside me for a while - but I'm getting a bit bored with seeing the same composers suggested for every comicbook score under the sun on various threads, just because they've done work in the genre before; there are more composers out there.

Anyways, Williams is almost retired now anyway (he's said he tends only to work on Speilberg's movies now)

^That's what I heard. Also, I'm not sure if he's obligated to finish out the Harry Potter series.

A small part of what(IMHO) is Patrick Doyle's best work so far:

I don't think I want a Thor score to sound like this, but it gives you a good idea of what Doyle is capable of.

There are definately parts of that which I think would suit Thor down to the ground.

Any suggestions that move away from the seemingly obligitory and unimaginative suggestions certainly get my vote.

Default Re: Thor Score

I was watching this and thinking that something like this would be quite fitting for the opening of Thor, it's a liitle bit different and mysterious - suggesting the magical and regal qualities of Asgard and it's enhabitants; that is right up until 1:46 when it all goes to ****.

Hmm, well maybe some themes that might suit Loki. Yeah, I can see that.

Default The Soundtrack

I am thinking something like this would work very well:

Thor.mp3

It's certainly Wagnerian enough . I know it's a bit early, but I'd also like to know everyone's thoughts on the matter. Should the score itself be purely classical or a mix of classical and metal? If they throw in a couple of 'pop' songs what genre should they be? Feel free to post examples .

I believe this topic has been discussed at length in another thread, and in that one I suggested that the soundtrack be primarily a classical score, but they simply had to include this song somewhere:

Zep's Immigrant Song is certainly cool, but I feel that the only way that it would work would be during the end credits - much like they did with Black Sabbath in Iron Man.

oh yea totally during the film i would want to just have a classical score for the film. But i wouldnt mind during credits for some rock/metal/pop songs getting placed there.

Evanescence. Multiple times. Especially in the really emotional scenes. I want, no, i DEMAND caterwalling. Pretty much, if the movie doesnt feel like a two hour music video, its going to be a disaster. Thats one thing I think Lord of the Rings needed, more modern music. thats why ive never watched it without my ipod on

do you think they could get the girl from Evanescence to actually be in the movie itself singing? like maybe during the part where Thor is banished from Asgard she could be standing right behind Odin's shoulder being like "I tried so hard to tell myself that you're gonnnnnnnneeeeee!" and when Loki brings forth Ragnarok they could play something like Wake Me Up Inside
