MUSIC SCORE: “We Happy Few” – The Calm Blue Sea (2008) — but I believe it’s much more majestic with the sound muted.

It is a very large file and you may want to wait for it all to load before playing it. The way I do this is I start the video and as it starts, I pause it. You’ll notice that the video still gets loaded in the background. I select 360p as my PC will choke at 720p HD, but if your machine has the CPU power, go for it.
