Interview with Mark Isham, the composer is also available to watch.
Also, a song was used in a summer trailer for Once called Rescue Me (How the Story Ends) by Kerrie Roberts. Her website is here (direct link to her blog post about the trailer). You can get her EP with the song on it here on Itunes. I had never seen the original trailer but the song is in a lot of fan videos for Once on You Tube.

I loved what they did with music at the end of the last ep (110 -- 7:15 a.m.) where it was that lovely theme but the when they went around the kiss with the camera and showed Regina's car it was like it was the same theme only darker. Arhghg. Can anyone articulate that properly what they did there? I don't have the terminology, but wow, I loved it. They do so much stuff like that with camera work, music, costumes, etc., that is so beyond what most shows even attempt. Everything in the show tells and builds and drives the stories. Looooove it.

The cinematographer for it has a twitter and always puts up cool pics like this one: https://twitter.com/#!/stevester17/stat...3907329/photo/1

It was mentioned upthread that a few months ago Mark Isham's OUaT score was available for free download on ABC.com. Does anyone know where I could buy the score? There seems to be a score consisting of six songs floating around on YouTube, but I've checked ABC, iTunes, and Amazon, and there's nothing. I really want the end theme. Help?

I was thinking that Charming's theme music reminds me of the wonderful Last of the Mohicans soundtrack. Not saying it's at all the same, just has a similar "heroic" feel to it.
I'm so glad ABC went all-in on the musical score which adds so much character to the show; and kudos to Mark Isham for getting it just right!

1. Baelfire has a leitmotif. I has a similariy to Emma's, subdued by not as mornful. the only other characters with leitmotifs are Charming, Snow, Regina, Gold and, of course, Emma. This means that Baelfire is going to be a major factor as the series continues.
This is part of a post I put in the episode thread. I see that this forum is the right place for it. I heard Bae's theme twice. When he and Rump are having dinner, and when Bae meets his friend while Rump is off murdering the maid.

There are 5 collector's edition covers, the same as there were 5 original posters, Snow, Emma, Charming, Evil Queen and Rumpel.
Edit: Something that interested me as far as music and production is apparently they finished scoring the finale today. (Mark Isham and Adam Horowitz were tweeting about it.) 12 days before it airs. And almost a month since they finished filming.
Edit 2: Now available at the ABC.com Store and now in stock again at Amazon.

Also, I read on another thread (forgot which one) about how the hospital sets were shades of green - in particular the David-in-a-coma set. It was speculated that it might be a reference to FTL. Henry's hospital room was all shades of blue. Sadness perhaps? I wonder if that is CGI/green screen too? It sure opens up the possibilities for colour/theme set decoration - at no extra cost.
ETA: I hope this is the right place for this post. I couldn't find another that seemed to fit.

Not necessarily. Blue and green are the two most common color schemes in hospitals because studies have shown that both colors have a calming, relaxing effect on patients. That's why you will often see hospital staff dressed from head to toe in one of those two colors. That the hospital sets were in either shades of green or blue is actually a very authentic representation.

Speaking of the soundtrack--is it just me, or does Belle's Story sound especially Disney? I know nothing about music, so I couldn't even begin to tell you why I think that, but for some reason it just sounds so Disney/Disney's Beauty and the Beast to my ear!

I will say that playing it with the cello when she and Regina were at his deathbed was very effective.
