Music Monday: ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ (Original Score) by Alexandra Harwood

Guernsey score cover

It’s Monday and we’re back with another original score—this one following one of my favorite movies ever The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which I’ve spoken about a number of times on here (and will continue to).

Some scores you love only a few songs from, but with Alexandra Harwood’s compositions for this film—I adore them all. Seriously, I couldn’t even choose a favorite because when this score is on a loop while I write, there is no skipping. The tracks each blend together so beautifully, so masterfully, it’s like I’m there and that is the best kind of mood when writing anything. It’s transfixing, so very moving and it feels like coming home.

It’s picturesque, magnetic, and one of the very few scores that somehow continues to surprise me even though I constantly have it on replay. And just to point out a specific song, “Written For You” is currently playing while I write this, which feels all sorts of right for the moment.

“Across The Sea” now came on shuffle further proving just how beautiful the score is because I could sit here, listening through the entire thing and stating just how much I adore it through and through. There is so much I shamefully admit I didn’t know about Guernsey until I watched this movie then I went ahead and immediately added it to the list of places I’d love to visit. And you best believe when I do, I’ll likely be walking around with this score on a loop to and from—back and forth.
