Song of the Day #1908

Song of the Day: Vertigo (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by Bernard Herrmann, is the second suite in our 5-day mini-tribute to one of the finest composers to touch cinematic history. The soundtrack to this film is one of his crowning achievements—yet another of his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock, who directed this 1958 psychological thriller, starring James Stewart and Kim Novack. The central theme—Scene d’Amour—remains the most haunting highlight of this selection.
