Description: Tense variant of the "Lullaby" theme from Vergie Winters after Pete is shot at by gangsters from a moving car
On-screen: Peter watches the car drive away
Analysis: It is interesting that Roy Webb was able to borrow a cue that had two moods that fit this scene (and worked with the timing of the new film); this variant outlines a g# diminished 7th chord

conflict | conversing | detective | diminished 7th chord | direct modulation | dissonant bass | food | leading lady | leading man | love interest | reacting | reporter | street | tense
