Although the "fanfare" portion of the late Akira Ifukube's Godzilla Theme has made numerous appearances in the first eight episodes of Godzilla Singular Point, his famous march has yet to make its debut. Supposedly recorded before the Japan-only Youtube premiere of Singular Point, a clip of Godzilla's March has been making its rounds online. You can listen below:
Though it has not been confirmed that this piece is from Singular Point, the music matches rumors of the rendition including chanting.
Godzilla's March by Akira Ifukube was first heard in the main titles for the original 1954 film. It has since been used to underscore Godzilla in ten other films, including stock music in Shin Godzilla and a rendition by Bear McCreary for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Ifukube's march is considered so iconic it was also heard in non-Godzilla films, including Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 and Ready Player One.
The latest version of Ifukube's march comes from series composer Kan Sawada. Sawada's score for Godzilla Singular Point is expected to be released July 21st, 2021.
Godzilla Singular Point will hit Netflix in North America, and the rest of the world, on Thursday, June 24th. It's currently airing in Japan on broadcast television and Netlfix.
In the year 2030, Yun Arikawa of the Otaki Factory, and grad student Mei Kamino, investigate mysterious signals that open up a new world of monsters. Their alternate paths of research lead them to a mysterious substance founded by a missing scientist which could be the answer to, "the hopeless future" personified as Godzilla. -- Sources: VGMdb.net - Godzilla Singular Point Soundtrack Information

SarcasticGoji, Ifukube's Godzilla theme fits him no matter what. This portion was used plenty of times when he was the villain: Godzilla vs. Biollante, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs. Mothra, GMK, Shin Godzilla.
SarcasticGoji, I wasn't talking about the Fury portion. The march is heard during Godzilla's attack in that clip at the 3:35 mark and in the Shin Godzilla clip at the 1:30 mark. Slow or not, it's still the same theme.
I don’t mean that it evokes happiness. But it just doesn’t really work for me. It’s too bright and doesn’t really portray the horror or power. The Key in the 1954 and 1989 versions (which i assume are the same recording) do help with my problem, but it evokes more panic, I would use it more to focus on the people and military, not the monster.
SarcasticGoji, The 1989 version is a re-recording. And while agree it doesn't evoke horror, I do think it provides a sense of aggressive power behind Godzilla. Of the pieces used to underscore Godzilla's character I think his march encompasses him best as a whole.
I don’t really hear that. Maybe i’m judging it too much. I didn’t really have this problem until I tried to make my own version. I think i’ve mentioned my godzilla a billion times so i won’t say more, but it doesnt seem quite right for me now.
Maybe I should try listening to it differently.
I really like this Singular Point one of Reveiw though. It seems to evoke power and something else, i’m not exactly sure what yet.
I heard this, 2 of the episode of 1-9. i heard a different Godzilla theme which was really cool. Just like the heisei Godzilla theme but upgraded & has a different part of the song. It was pretty cool. yes i watch the episodes
