Soundtrack Challenge Week 1

Soundtrack Challenge

Every day in June via the Facebook page for the Film Music and Soundtrack Production BA(Hons) at Colchester Institute, I will be posting a cryptic clue to a certain soundtrack cue. Your role is to decipher the clue and find the correct scene/soundtrack cue on YouTube and post it on Facebook as a reply to the clue.

This page is open to all with a passion for everything cinematic including TV, radio and video games – not just for the degree students, so please “like” the page and join in the fun!

I’ll post them here too for those without Facebook. Check back every day for the next clue, the previous answer and the Hall of Fame!
