Music in this one is:
“Happy Land,” off of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ score for The Proposition. (Which is a great western).
“Becalmed,” off of Brian Eno’s Another Green World. (Which is a great, great record).
“Charu’s Theme.” Which is from a Satayajit Ray movie and, I just realized, from The Darjeeling Limited score (which might be my favorite Wes Anderson movie. Deal with it).
Arthur R. Kelley’s “Five Moods for Two Bassoons” as played by Dong-Yun Kwon & someone else (but I don’t need to tell you that, bassoon fan).
“Malice Aforethought” off of Calexico’s soundtrack to a movie called The Guard, which I haven’t seen but I like to imagine is an indie-rock Paul Blart Mall Cop.
and finally: “Wolkenschatten, op. 136: I Tranquillo” by 2-Chainz muse, Gebreuder Ohrentaub from the album, Four Brothers (which also features a four tuba-version of Ebony and Ivory, the Ebony is represented by the brass keys of a tuba, the ivory is also represented by the brass keys on a tuba).
