Overall Meaning

As the lyrics to Gustavo Santaolalla's song The Choice are instrumental, there are no specific words to interpret. However, the music itself conveys a strong and emotive message through the combination of melody and harmony. The song begins with a slow and introspective introduction that captures a sense of yearning and contemplation. The main theme of the melody is carried throughout the song by a soft and delicate guitar, supported by a sparse and subtle arrangement of percussion and strings.

The overall feeling of the music is one of reflection and introspection, as if the listener is contemplating a difficult decision or a critical turning point in their life. The slow tempo and fragile phrasing of the guitar evoke a sense of vulnerability and uncertainty, while the gentle harmonies provide a feeling of warmth and comfort.

The Choice is a beautiful and evocative piece of music that speaks to the listener on an emotional level, without the need for lyrics. It is a testament to Gustavo Santaolalla's talent as a musician and composer, and his ability to capture the essence of human emotion through his art.

TLOU- Game
"What did you do, Joel?"

....."I saved her"

TLOU-HBO (comparing the game with the tv show)
it makes sense when Ellie reads Bill's letter to Joel that there's one life worth saving for. For Bill, he saved Frank and protected him. For Tess, she saved both Joel and Ellie by surrendering to FEDRA (game) /gave her life to a runner and then detonating the building (hbo).

For Joel, even though he lost everything- Sarah, Tess, Bill and Frank but Joel still has Ellie and that he saves her.
