|From: The Last Unicorn Soundtrack; Year: 1982; Genre: Folk Rock/Soft Rock|
This one comes from the animated classic The Last Unicorn, which is a movie I still cherish to some point from my childhood. What I loved about America's contribution to the soundtrack is that their songs work excellently with the film, but also by themselves. Man's Road is my favourite song they did; while it has that soft/mellow "yacht rock" that they were known for at the time, this one has some great arrangement and an overall dark and brooding feeling that is somewhat mixed with a majestic and upbeat sound thanks to their use of a mix of minor, major, augmented, and diminished chords.
