    Williams' manliest most testosterone-fuelled music?

    Favorite John Williams rated "R" soundtrack

    Ok, you seriously suggest I should KILL MYSELF, just because I put the word 'easily' in your mouth? I hope you don't have to deal with many people in the actual world... You start your post with 'Why on earth..', which suggests that it is completely strange and absurd that a film like SPR is rated R. Me reading that as you feeling the film could 'easily' have been rated PG-13 is not that farfetched in my opinion. The violence in SPR is extremely visual and explicit. Gruesome even, even by today's standards. Of course the film has a historical context and the documentary feel of it is something that should be applauded. This is Spielberg at the top of his game. But just because it's realistic and based on a real event, doesn't mean it is suitable for younger audiences. I'm sure there are many kids below 17 that can take a film like SPR and put the violence into the right perspective, but I'm equally sure there are many who would be scarred by the experience. 'Why on earth' would apply to films like Pocahontas or Home Alone. If those films were rated R than a question starting with such a strong notion would be completely valid. In the case of SPR it is simply not. In my mind it is definitely not an easy PG-13 film and I can understand the rating the MPAA applied to the film in the end.

    SPR ‘easily’ PG-13? Did you ever see it?
  7. I updated the cover and the tracklist in the first post.
  8. Thanks! Will surely add the Tony Bennett recording, which I didn’t know about...
  9. Didn’t know about the Denver version! Thanks! I like it!
  10. Yes! I like them as well!
  11. That is certainly the best version recorded, but I think Karliene is ‘merely’ a YouTube artist....
  12. I edited the cover, now stating Barbra and including Johnny Mathis and Shirley Bassey. Surely making the cut are: 'If We Were In Love' - Luciano Pavarotti 'The Same Hello, The Same Goodbye' - Barbra Streisand 'Dream Away' - Frank Sinatra 'Somewhere In My Memory' - Bette Midler 'Can You Read My Mind' - Shirley Bassey 'Moonlight' - Sting 'Moonlight' - Gloria Estefan 'For Always' - Lara Fabian and Josh Groban 'Make Me Rainbows' - Ella Fitzgerald 'The Long Goodbye' - Harry Connick Jr. 'Hold You' - Joseph Williams 'Can You Read My Mind' - Lea Salonga 'Nice To Be Around' - Johnny Mathis 'How Can I Remember' - Michael Dees Still looking for a really good version of 'When You're Alone', but haven't stumbled upon it yet....
  13. I'll edit that tomorrow! Great! Didn't know! Thanks! And thanks to YouTube, I can even listen to it right now:
  14. She sang Moonlight at the Oscar ceremony in 1996 instead of Sting... Look up Lea Salonga’s version on YouTube: it’s mindblowing and it’s like you’ll hear it for the first time.
  15. I'm busy assembling a CD of the best and most memorable songs by John Williams. I've already made a cover! Which songs do you feel should be on this? And did I forget any 'big name' artists that performed or recorded a John Williams song? Making the cut (UPDATED January 14, 2019): 'If We Were In Love' - Luciano Pavarotti 'The Same Hello, The Same Goodbye' - Barbra Streisand 'Dream Away' - Frank Sinatra 'Somewhere In My Memory' - Bette Midler 'Can You Read My Mind' - Shirley Bassey 'Moonlight' - Sting 'For Always' - Lara Fabian and Josh Groban 'Make Me Rainbows' - Ella Fitzgerald 'The Long Goodbye' - Harry Connick Jr. 'Hold You' - Joseph Williams 'Uno Di Qua L'Adro Di Là' - Ornella Vanoni 'My Inamorata' - Tony Bennett 'Nice To Be Around' - Johnny Mathis 'How Can I Remember' - Michael Dees 'America, The Dream Goes On' - John Denver 'Wednesday Special' - Paul Williams 'When You're Alone' - OST version BONUS TRACKS: 'Can You Read My Mind' - Lea Salonga 'Moonlight' - Gloria Estefan 'Nice To Be Around' - Freddy Cole 'Can You Read My Mind' - Maureen McGovern
