Music Monday: “Married Life” by Michael Giacchino from Pixar’s UP
Every Monday, we highlight one song that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!
Given recent life developments (I got married this weekend!) I figured what a more appropriate music choice than the score for one of the cutest couples in Pixar’s repertoire. While Ellie isn’t featured much in Pixar’s UP (she’s only in the first few minutes of the movie), she and Carl and one of the longest spanning love stories – a lifetime filled with trials, tribulations, love, and of course happiness. Their life together was scored by Michael Giacchino, who burst out on the scene thanks to his beautifully haunting work on ABC’s LOST.
Listen to the lovely tune and try not to cry as you relive that heartwarming and then heartbreaking montage from the film.
