The Most Wanted

Ever since I saw this promo of Univercell Vijay Awards 2008, the theme music that plays in the background kept ringing in my ears. The melody is so haunting and catchy that I have been constantly humming this melody for past one week. On Sunday, when I was reading the back issues of Film Score Monthly magazine, I came to know that this piece is from the soundtrack of ‘Wanted’ composed by Danny Elfman. One of the reliance advertisements also uses this melody.

Success Montage – Wanted

Wanted is one of the most exciting action scores from last year. Have you checked out his score to the new Terminator: Salvation? I think it's much better than Marco Beltrami's score to the third movie!

Looking forward to his "Wolf Man" score in December.

Demonstar - Haven't heard the complete Soundtrack, but this one is irresistable. And search on Danny Elfman lead me to his first non-film symphony work called 'Seranada Schizhophrana'.. I haven't heard anything like this before... such freaking madness in the orchestration in each of the movements of this symphony... try it out..

Will check it out, thanks. "Music For A Darkened Theatre" is a really great compilation of cues from Elfman's scores that I found out.

I read about the compilation. Will look for it.

Hi Suresh,

I'm addicted to it.
