Why? I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the actual Godzilla theme but was reminiscent of the Beginning of the actual one. I don’t like the second part of this theme though. Hmmm.... actually I’m relistening, it’s not that great it’s ok for me though. Can we just use KOTM theme for Goji instead?
SarcasticGoji, That's largely my problem. It's almost like they decided not to pay the licensing fees to use Ifukube's theme again, so they hired Holkenborg to write a low-rent knockoff with fewer instruments.
If he was going to write a new Godzilla theme it didn't have to be an Ifukube knockoff. There's plenty of great Godzilla themes that don't try to sound like Ifukube. For example:
It’s trying to be like the first one, but I listened to it and instead of following any musical pattern it just seems to be note played randomly, The minor and major scales are all over the place so I can’t tell if Godzilla should be menacing or Not.
I enjoy that too. Generally, that portion of the theme is still heard with the more popular motif Ifukube came up with in 1962. I like it too. You can still hear a variation of it in latter movies. For example, it appears as an extension of Ifukube's 1962 theme at the 1:21 mark in this cue from Mothra vs. Godzilla: Godzilla Raids Nagoya
I wish McCreary had included that portion in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but his score for that movie was so stellar I didn't miss it either.
SarcasticGoji, Yup. You can hear that portion of the theme in King Kong vs. Godzilla, Mothra vs. Godzilla, a variation of it in Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, Invasion of Astro-Monster, Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla vs. Gigan (stock music), Godzilla vs. Biollante (stock music), Godzilla vs. Mothra '92, Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (stock music), Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Godzilla x Megaguirus (stock music) and of course Shin Godzilla (stock music)
Man... if the music for the whole movie is going to sound like this.. I wonder how it's going to sound for the scenes with a whole bunch of action. Hopefully the music for the whole movie won't be this low.
Really wondering what Mechagodzilla's theme is going to sound like now.
