Episode 5 – Marc Shaiman’s ‘City Slickers’

Justin talks about City Slickers, the 1991 western comedy directed by Ron Underwood with music by the legendary Marc Shaiman, and the moment when he was inspired to utilize a specific genre of music in a scene that still needed music – a moment in the film that turned out timeless, fun, and musically unforgettable. Marc continues to be one of the most talented composers out there today, and this example is one small element of his creative repertoire. As always, in the film clip mentioned above, we have carefully edited out the SFX to focus on the score, interweaving sound effects where appropriate. Enjoy, and see you next time!
