This evening, my wife and I found ourselves listening to a favorite soundtrack from a delightful anime film from Studio Ghibli called When Marnie Was There. The movie tells a captivating story1, and the soundtrack by Takatsugu Muramatsu is an excellent fit. My favorite track from the album is Marnie, which captures all of the beauty and mystery of the film in a one single piece.
For a while it was available on Apple Music, then it disappeared for a bit before coming back, hopefully to stay. It’s definitely a highlight in our playlists and a favorite for background listening. And unlike many excellent soundtracks, the film itself is also worth watching.
