Just came across it on a old CDr.
Had not listened to it in years, nearly forgotten it excisted.

Very nice Mr. Takis, and glad to see Demi Fragale still appears to be singing.



























Now, anyone here know what the hell I'm on about? :)

Would you be referring to the "Childhood" song from Hook? The one for which John Takis recorded vocals be Demi Fragale?

EDIT: Why did you put that in spoiler tags?

Why'd you put that in spoiler tags?
"Close Encounters to me is as good a piece of concert music as the 20th century has produced. Everybody fixates on... the Superman fanfare, or Star Wars - Main Theme, or the Raiders March. It's what happens after that, it's not the big popular hook where you go: 'My God John Williams is a genius.' Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

This must have been in the goldenage of jwfan, don't you celebrate the 10th annivers this year?
back then John Takis must have been the leading man (next to stefan of course :))

Hmmm....good point actually.
Didn't Ricard start his site "The Music Of Star Wars: Episode I-The Phantom Menace" (or something like that) in 1999?

Of course the MB was part of the Groovy Yak JW site, I think.

Anyway John Takis was a big contributer in those days, especially when it came to sorting out unreleased music from TPM. He, together with Jim Ware and ElvisJones were considered the experts.

It's a very nice song, but it was better left out of the film.
Do you like John Williams? His early work was a little too jazzy for my taste, but when Jaws came out in '75 I really think he came into his own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and an air of consummate professionalism that really gives the pieces a big boost. He's been compared to Jerry Goldsmith but I think John has a far more leitmotif-driven style of composing. In '82 John composed this, E.T., his most accomplished album to date. I think his undisputed masterpiece is "The Magic of Halloween", a theme so catchy most people don't listen to what it means. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of childhood and the importance of friendship, it's also a personal statement about the man himself. Hey Paul!

I remember finding out about this years ago on the MB, and it was kind of surprising because Demi lives on my street (or rather, she lived with her parents on the street where I lived with my parents throughout middle and high school). She actually babysat for my brother one time and recognized the "Childhood" melody when he was playing "Flight to Neverland" on CD. Small world!

It was called "Star Wars: Episode I - The Music"

Anyway John Takis was a big contributer in those days, especially when it came to sorting out unreleased music from TPM. He, together with Jim Ware and ElvisJones were considered the experts.


Yep and I was the guy who broke how to rip the music out of "The Phantom Menace" PC game

Can't believe it's been 10 years...

Nah I've been posting on and off here since the beginning.... just go through phases where I went LONG periods without posting... like a lot of college and a length of time in my mid twenties.... a lot of that same time I wasn't listening to film music much at all either. Lately I've been listening to film scores more than I ever have before...

I remember downloading the LP rip of "Uncovering the Ark" here on June or July 2000. It was a 128kbps mp3 with many noises due to compression. But back then, it sure made my day.
Also a VHS rip of "The Scroll/To Pankot Palace" which was credited as "unreleased music, newly discovered".

Since I had a 33,6kbps dial-up connection at that time, I didn't explore the site well enough, and ended up forgetting about it, until the Indy expanded editions were announced last year...
