Default Suggestions for cues to listen to

Hi Everyone - I've got a theme to write for a film that is doing my head in atm. It needs to say "old friends catching up but WTF are you doing coming to me for?!"

Does anyone have suggestions for cues in TV/Films etc to listen to that have that vibe? I'm looking to immerse myself in a particular sound and eventually the theme will come to me.

Thanks in advance.

That is one of the oddest cue descriptions I've ever heard.

Is this the only cue for it or there others with temp so we could get a more general idea

*spoiler alert* - how about the theme that plays in Westworld when Dolores and the Man in Black are catching up? (I have no serious suggestions, sorry).

Find out what the director has in mind and go from there.

How about the Forrest Gump theme?

You'd need to put a spin on it for the "WTF" element.
