    Anyone else love Always?

    "For Always"
  2. I know. But it would still be too many to list. At least a hundred. Don't mean to be difficult, but my mind collapses when the parameters are too wide.
  3. You keep posting about JMJ in the wrong thread, Richard! No, haven't heard anything. I don't think it's out for a while yet.
  4. The parameters are so wide, I wouldn't know where to start or stop (this is a particular favourite "genre" of mine). But I could easily rattle off a dozen or so Hans Zimmer scores in this idiom alone, which IMO are the pinnacle of this particular approach.

    The film has often been criticized for being too maudlin, but I disagree. Rather, I think Spielberg was going for the same type of melodrama that Victor Fleming nurtured in the original A GUY NAMED JOE (Spielberg also channeled Fleming beautifully in WAR HORSE, and the ending of BRIDGE OF SPIES is pure Howard Hawks -- I love it when he makes these tributes to his Golden Age heroes). The lush cinematography by Mikael Salomon is beautiful -- alternating between nocturnal blue and ravishing orange. Interestingly, I hated the ALWAYS score initially. Before I got the soundtrack, I only had the two tracks on the FILMWORKS compilation, and I thought the rest of the score was like that. To my amazement I discovered that "Follow Me" and "Dorinda Solo Flight" were, indeed, the only really thematic pieces on the album, and the rest was mostly 'droney', textural stuff with glittering harps and directionless harmonic structures. Remember, this was the time I was into big theme Williams (mid 90s)! However, as I've grown older and more refined in my taste, I've come to appreciate it for the exploratory tone poem that it really is. These days, I really enjoy the soundtrack -- although I could be without the country songs and the hundred variations of "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".
  6. Sorry to hear it! if you’re not going, I have a friend who would be very interested in buying one of your tickets! Feel free to PM me.
  7. No, no. I've heard it this. Selections from: DADDY-O I PASSED FOR WHITE THE SECRET WAYS GIDGET GOES TO ROME ALCOA PREMIERE THEATRE (suite) JOHN GOLDFARB, PLEASE COME HOME STORIA DI UNA DONNA (suite - the Cortina sequence) IMAGES The end.

    War of the Worlds scores!

    Wayne's WORLD (no pun intended) is great, but ultimately I'll have to go with Williams.
  9. My reservoir of funny comments is now all used up. I'll leave you to it.
  10. I know, but get with the flow! (and I'm impressed I got your post without using Google Translate).
  11. You're definitely Nordic, though, hornist. I propose that we all speak Norwegian during our meet. English is overrated.
  12. Why not? You're perfectly suited for this kind of task. (btw, the RAH will have a photographer present, but that's all there is, as far as I know).
  13. It should definitely be documented. Not just the gathering, but the concert as well. I have a feeling this will be a reference point we'll talk about for years to come.

    I thought this was about putting JW's effort up against Jeff Wayne.
