What would be your #1 Soundtrack for a dramatic movie on the Chris Watts Case?

I’ve heard this on some channels…

It’s cerebral, but perhaps too sentimental – too pleasant – for what really happened, don’t you think?

While driving this made me think of the affair…

The music starting at 1:09 speaks to the sort of impending, inevitable disaster that I feel when I think, research and write about the Watts case…

Let’s hear it. What music do you associate with the Watts case?

Suggestion #1:

Suggestion #2

  1. Ps…..
    This is the end
    Beautiful friend
    This is the end
    My only friend

    The end
    Of our elaborate plans
    The end
    Of everything that stands
    The end
    No safety or surprise
    The end
    I’ll never look into your eyes
    Again

    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need of some stranger’s hand
    In a desperate land

  2. Can’t stop thinking about this one – how about The The – This is the day..

    Well you didn’t wake up this morning ’cause you didn’t go to bed
    You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red
    The calendar on your wall is ticking the days off
    You’ve been reading some old letters
    You smile and think how much you’ve changed
    All the money in the world couldn’t buy back those days

    You pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes
    You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky
    This is the day your life will surely change
    This is the day when things fall into place

    You could’ve done anything, if you’d wanted
    And all your friends and family think that you’re lucky
    But the side of you they’ll never see
    Is when you’re left alone with the memories
    That hold your life together like glue

    You pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes
    You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky
    This is the day your life will surely change
    This is the day when things fall into place

    This is the day your life will surely change
    This is the day your life will surely change
    This is the day your life will surely change

  3. Here’s a second choice of mine – from the composer Mark Isham. You may have heard his music in the little gem of a movie called “The Majestic” in 2001 with Jim Carey. This one spoke to me regarding Watts – it has kind of a tribal drumbeat throughout, which although Watts lived in an introverted world and likely committed the murders in a silent way, a steady pounding in his head must have driven him on. Listen for yourself – “The Melancholy of Departure” by Mark Isham: (and the visuals ring true)
