How does one sum up history’s most famous Food Personality in a musical theme? That was the challenge posed to me by Chris Keyser and Daniel Goldfarb’s brilliant and warm showcase of Julia Child’s early years on television.
The answer I arrived at was the tune that we hear throughout this series. A tune that is sometimes hurrying along, sometimes strutting with a swagger, sometimes leaking out with emotional resonance. I chose a sound that was somewhat vintage – it is 1962 after all – and able to live comfortably next to the many source music selections from that era. But also, hopefully, a timeless melody that resonates as Julia Positivity anytime we hear it.
