Okay, Bluntinstrument gives up. Where is Beck's score? American Pie 3 is the ultimate example of the pop music compilation score. Where parties or background hi-fi can't be used as an excuse, it suffices simply as underscore music, since this film is based almost entirely around the antics of the growing-up kids, and it works as an indication of their contemporary hipness. The very tiniest glimmer of a specially-composed score shows its face in the later pre-wedding dialogue scenes and links, but consists mainly of quiet guitar motifs which could just as well be intros to pop songs. Where Beck's skills are really employed is for the love theme, a warm but brief string melody over acoustic guitar figuration which appears during the proposal, the wedding ceremony (starting at Michelle's speech) and given a final showing at the very end of the credits. Ah, there, found it!
