I have the full soundtrack on the hard drive of my computer so if anyone wants a copy... :)

I must have another listen. Thanks to you, Andy - how long ago that seems now... :)

The musical score and soundtrack to "Brokeback Mountain" (2005) just enhance the film.  I don't really care for country music, but the songs that play during the film are very good.  I think that the Oscar that the film's musical score won was definitely deserved.  A film's musical score can add so much to the emotional experience of the film, the musical score and soundtrack to "Brokeback Mountain" is certainly no exception.

I don't know what made me think of this tonight, but I suddenly had a memory of a commercial that ran 2019.

It was called "The Road Trip" and it was for the Mayo Clinic.  The full 3 minute commercial feature a father and son as they are on a trip.  They end up at the mayo clinic, and the assumption is that the son has cancer, and the father took him to the clinic for treatment.

Remembering the music, I felt like it was very "Brokeback-like", so I searched for the commercial, and found the full ad on YouTube.

Turns out the composer is Gustavo.

Certainly is extremely Brokebacky, Chuck.

I thought so too.  I'm not sure how I missed that the first time I heard the music.
