In Olivia Wilde's recent interview with Variety on her upcoming film Don't Worry Darling, she shares that the cast is encouraged to give creative input, bringing so many ideas to the table.
One in particular is what is called "the trigger song" - a mysterious tune that Alice, portrayed by Florence Pugh, hums throughout the film. In production, Harry Styles offered to write the melody.
"Harry called me and said, 'What's the trigger song? Like, what's the melody?'" says Wilde. Her response was, "I don't know, I'm going to different writers to write it. Do you have anything in mind?" Just five minutes later, Harry sent Wilde a demo from his piano, and it ended up being used in the film!
Harry explains: "I wanted something that could be both sweet and creepy, entirely dependent on the context. I remember first playing it on the piano, and it had a sort of homemade nursery rhyme feel to it. Applied to the different moments in the film, I think it takes on a couple of different lives - I hope."
I personally went to school for music business, and within those classes I had some entertainment ones involving scoring movies. It's not an easy task to find music that fits the scene, let alone create it and have it be able to fit multiple! Really excited to see the finished product in Don't Worry Darling when it comes out on September 23rd!
