EDITORS’ NOTES

A journey of this magnitude calls for a soundtrack that's just as animated. Equal parts George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” and George Benson’s “On Broadway,” Alexandre Desplat’s breezy, jazzy, jaunty score for The Secret Life of Pets epitomizes a hustling, bustling New York somewhere between Woody Allen and Mad Men. Lively cymbals evoke wiggling, wagging tails, while seductive flutes bring to mind the caricature of an inquisitive-yet-cautious cat. And the curious, dancing clarinet of “Meet the Pets” perfectly sets the mood for the animals’ wide-eyed adventure.
