The Trap (soundtrack)
Ron Goodwin's music for The Trap slips 2 places
The bombastic brass, cymbals and soaring strings of The Trap's theme tune hardly seem appropriate as a soundtrack to a film about a fur trapper who buys a mute girl from her foster parents to take as his unwilling wife. However, the action is set in the Canadian wilderness, and you can definitely hear those wide open spaces and lofty mountains in this grand theme tune. As for its use to soundtrack the London Marathon, Goodwin reportedly approved, saying: "I never intended it to accompany running, but it was supposed to depict a certain amount of energy being expended."
