@mike mars Every Director, along w his music director, decides what music should accompany different scenes. The selection of Barber’s monumental piece is Perfect-.

When Sheen’s squad leader, played by William DaFoe— a good man and soldier—, is running for the helicopter and get riddled w gunfire and is left behind, this piece highlights the loss.

People associate this piece with that scene, because it was/ is such a perfect choice.

God is good, even in His overarching awareness and dealings w men, often not very good or honorable. Barber himself acknowledged as much by alternately calling this piece Agnes Dei.

Have a good night ✨

A minute of silence for the people who tried to search for this song but had no idea what they should type so they never found it

google "that sad violin thing you hear on TV" and it will be included in one of the first few listicles.


I searched up “music from Shutter Island”

I actually found it once and forgot again XD but I found it again by searching " sad classic music violin" lmao not even sure if it's a violin tho


As I forgot his last name, I literally typed "samuel strings symph..." and Youtube gave me "Samuel Barber Adagio for strings saxophone".

The algorithm may give strange results, but bless it anyway.
