  • Song is used frequently throughout the movie

0:03, Rhythm and tempo starts very fast and very strong. There is a lot of texture to start out.

  • 0:37, Melody comes in for the first time with various string instruments along with what I assume would be different sounds made through synthesizers.
  • 0:58, Melody starts to fade into a solo vocalist changing the complexion of the rhythm to slow and very soft. Turning from intense to more of a dramatic sound.
  • 1:27, Voice fades and the rhythm has slowed considerably to a soft violin playing in, what almost seems like the background.

2:34, softer tone continues with ascensions and dissentions. Variety of string instruments through out this part of the piece.

  • 3:23, Ascending rhythm over the next 0:20
  • 4:12, soft Rhythm continues to create drama and suspense. Needed within the movie for many different parts.
  • 5:17, The melody comes back in to create a harmony with the violin
  • 5:55, Drums ascending to create a different beat. Adds depth to the piece. They come in and out through out the rest of the song.
  • 6:35, Main melody comes back in with a very strong rhythm. Adds in a brass section for more character and depth.
  • 7:01, Main melody ends quickly with a soft voice that fades to the end of the piece

Released May 22, 2001

  • Bob Badami helped produce the score
  • Nominated for best original score for the golden globes
  • Romantic style song to use in many sections of the movie

0:01, Piano enters softly with the violin in the background. There is a very slow and soft beat to help create the drama within the song.

  • 0:26, Harp replaces the piano with the same melody. Rhythm and beat continue to be slow and soft
  • 0:47, Another instrument enters in-harmony with the harp. Seems like a flute or bassoon. Something in that family. The sound building through out this part.
  • 1:48, The piano comes back and the harp exits. The tone goes back to soft and slow. Much more sensitive throughout this bit of the piece.

2:28, The piano and what sounds like the violin are playing two different melodies in harmony. This creates a different tone and texture to the song. Brings depth and variety to it.

  • 3:31, music starts to descend and fade out and then comes back to a similar melody that is played through out the song.
  • 4:43, Tone changes with the piano and violins and then comes back to same style.
  • 5:28, melody begins to descend to the end of the piece
