SHOOT 4th Quarter 2021 Top Ten Tracks Music Chart

From a Run The Jewels' music video that's meshed with George Romero's cult classic feature The Night of the Living Dead to an "Unspoken" tale for Halo Infinite that gives a new poignant dimension to video game advertising, SHOOT's 4th quarter Top Ten Tracks Music Chart runs the gamut.

Among the other Chart entries are a "Magical" World Market spot which features a soundscape crafted from an Xmaas get-together, a whimsical visit to the "Whoopsery" for Chick-fil-A, and a journey in an electric Kia vehicle that helps a writer find creative inspiration.

So check out our Top Ten entries for the best in music and sound this last quarter of the year.
