McCreary does an excellent job on the music for this series, Sarah Connor's theme is great. However iTunes has left off a key piece of music that you will find on the CD: "Samson and Delilah" performed by Shirley Manson and heard in the second season premiere. Very disappointing.

where the f!#% is samson and delilah?

the best song that just happens to be on the album is left off for what reason?

Great Score, but missing a song

HBTunes

I love this score about as much as I loved the show (RIP). However, by skipping out on the song "Samson and Delilah" by Shirley Manson, you have severely disappointed me. Indeed, I can't even by it as a single song outside of the album! Instead I have to go get the CD instead of buying on iTunes. In short: Great 'score', but not quite a full 'soundtrack'. Still get five stars for what it is, but makes me sad.

About Bear McCreary

Score composer Bear McCreary was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on February 17, 1979, the son of the writer Laura Kalpakian. He obtained degrees in composition and recording arts from the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California and became a protégé of the film composer Elmer Bernstein, for whom he reconstructed and re-orchestrated the score for the 1963 film Kings of the Sun, resulting in a new recording of the music.

After scoring a number of short films in the late '90s and early 2000s, McCreary was hired to compose the music for a new version of the television series Battlestar Galactica, which premiered on the Sci Fi Channel in 2004. Soundtrack albums of his music were released in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009 by La-La Land Records, corresponding to the four seasons of the series. During that time, he also scored the straight-to-video film Rest Stop (released by PlanR) and its sequel, Rest Stop: Don't Look Back (released by La-La Land.), as well as another straight-to-video feature, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (La-La Land). The label also issued his music for the Fox TV series Eureka and Sci Fi Channel's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, both in 2008. His score for the pilot episode of the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica was released in 2009, and he stayed on to write for the series' full one-season run.

That same year, he was tapped to score AMC's popular zombie drama series The Walking Dead, which premiered in October 2010. Over the next few years McCreary's talents becoming increasingly in demand as he took jobs scoring NBC's superhero drama The Cape (2011), the historical fantasy series Da Vinci's Demons (2013), and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), just to name a few. In 2015, the first of his Billboard-charting soundtracks to the STARZ time-travel series Outlander was released by Relativity Records. The following year brought a string of film scores in the horror realm that included The Forest, The Boy, and 10 Cloverfield Lane. More genre-related scores followed in 2017, including soundtracks for the sci-fi black comedy Colossal and the slasher thriller Happy Death Day, as well as the J.D. Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye. ~ William Ruhlmann
