Random Factoid #207

20 02 2010

I always thought I had a good ear for music, but I raised my game to a new level last night.

While taking a paper break and watching the Olympics, I saw part of a segment on Norwegian skier Aksel Lund Svindal (I had to go to Yahoo to look that one up).  They showed him intensely focusing on skiing and doing other exercise to better himself physically.  Of course, NBC added some intense music to go along with it.

All of a sudden, I realized that I recognized the music.

I said out loud, “That’s so random.  They are using the score from ‘Frost/Nixon’ when they discovered Nixon and the Watergate scandal!”

It was the track “Watergate” from the “Frost/Nixon” soundtrack which I bought last year when the score was nominated for an Oscar.
