*Looking for the music from the Season 1 Finale (airing 5/18/2021)? click here*
I’ll start by saying something you might already know from a post I wrote a few months ago about Big Sky… but I’ll say it again:
I. Love. This. Show.
The mid-season finale airing on February 16th included a soundtrack trio of oldies but goodies. First up is “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy,” by The Archies. The writers/producers seem to be going with a trend of great (but almost “light”) music paired with heavy scenes. This song played as the villain was escaping from law enforcement after kidnapping a young kid.
Next is classic song is the Everly Brothers “Let It Be Me.” This song played as viewers watched a montage of the characters which have gone to the Great Spirit in the Sky. I like how they sort of memorialized the “good guys” who died, but somehow it also felt like a tribute to the actors playing these parts. I was half expecting there to be a “in memory of…” fading in on a black screen.
The episode ended with a teaser for the next season (starting in April), backed by Martha and the Vandellas “Nowhere to Run.” This song is clearly linked to the suspected murderer/kidnapper Ronald Pergman, but plays over dramatic scenes including familiar characters and a few folks we don’t know yet.
How do you feel about this show and are you as hooked as I am?
