    I think must be the only one that thought as soon as the native american chant started... that's on the mogwai track before "ex cowboy" on the album "come on die young" what's it called *checks... "oh! how the dogs stack up"

    I have a feeling that, in Big Hero Six, they did not establish a tune to represent the relationship between the brothers because they wanted to express that the younger brother doesn’t fully understand/accept his feelings for the situation with his older brother. WAIT HEAR ME OUT!! The younger brother is in his teens (I’m pretty sure), which is typically a time of confused and frustration. Also, he’s seemed to have a pretty traumatic life so far. With all of this in mind, it’d be hard for the young brother to understand or accept what he’s feeling when he thinks about his dead brother. The lack of a reoccurring tune for the brothers further establishes the lack of understanding/acceptance within the younger brother. I hope this makes sense, and if anyone has a polite counter argument or something to add, please comment.

    I never thought about it before, but I now TOTALLY agree with all that you said about big hero six! That scene did really make me cry the first time I watched it, but it would've been all that much better if they had done what you said about incorporating a specific theme into those other scenes. Also, when you were talking about them doing that in Finding Nemo, I got very teary eyed. This video is now going into my "Favorites" playlist!

    Lots of ways to make sad music. If you know what you're doing just slap some sad piano music over a sad scene and it will be sad, an example I've seen is in Gintama's sad scenes where the music is all alone, no theme or leitmotifs but the sad music is just really sad and powerful. Or have a theme and leitmotif and use it heavily, then in critical times have a sad version which is best used in Fairy Tail with its main themes having 4 different sad versions with 2 piano versions and 2 orchestral ones. I was watching "The Poop In My Pants" from Rick and Morty and it felt like watching the montage from Up, basically have a strong and happy but not too happy music and then slow it down and make it sad having a roller coaster of emotion.

    Idk why, but when the Nemo theme came on, I was getting depressed, slowly but slowly sadder. To the point my eyes were watering, and almost crying. For some reasons, your words made it more effective. I hope you are proud of yourself. (Because I sure am)

    If you want to be super sad/happy, you can just open 2 tabs on youtube. bring up the Tadashi is here clip from BH6, and the song Nemo's Egg from the Finding Nemo soundtrack. Play the song as Baymax says: "Tadashi is here" the second time, and the song will be synced beautifully with the scene (even the shot changes match up with the music) plus you will still hear the dialogue. The music in the scene is quiet enough so you don't hear two songs at once. You're welcome.

    Hey Sideways, I don't think you'd this but it's worth a shot anyways. I jist recently watched this movie by Netflix called "Marriage Life," and I really loved it. Broke my heart, made me cry, yadiyadiyada... but I couldn't help listening tk the film's score, and getting this Pixar-Monster Inc.-esque feel to it, and I know you made a seperate video on how we associate music with feelings and meanings, but maybe you might wanna check it out. P.S. I love your work, and I at times relate and learn a lot from your video essays... carry on!

    maybe it's just me....but ive never cried from a pixar movie. And i like a great movie that has range...but theyve always seemed contrived. Only one was Toy Story 4 that really got me, but I don't think that was the music...maybe i need to catch more pixar movies, but I don't think so. Thanks for the video though.

    I just found your channel today and have since watched and enjoyed several of your videos. I do have a piece of criticism for you though. I really don't like it when you have long pieces of text on the screen when you are talking over it. It is distracting and it pulls me out of what you are saying. Although to be fair, I have noticed considerably less of this in your more recent videos, so maybe you have already received similar feedback.
