There are so many scores/soundtracks every year and I love all of them, these of course are just the ones I feel I listened to most over the year 2018.  Once again... I really do love all the music, music friends and the composer friends I have made over the years. THANK YOU TO ALL THE LABELS, COMPOSERS, READERS and FRIENDS.
