  1. Yes, it's the last track, called "Titan's Spirit." And you're definitely right (as confirmed by the 30 second samples on Best Buy). But I wouldn't buy the whole CD for just the 7.5 minutes of score. I may download that track from iTunes or something.

  2. Thanks for letting us know about Remember the Titans. Too bad the CD includes "songs" and only 7.5 minutes of the score.

    Here in Massachusetts we didn't get any Walgreens commercials, so I'd be interested in hearing the music to that as well. But that Home Depot commercial! It's amazing.

  3. Well, it's over. As I suspected during the credits of the Olympics there was a musical visual montage.

    There were two pieces, both from film scores, none JW, though.

    1) Unknown

    2) Unknown, but this music which concluded the montage is from the same score as the "anti-nazi" music that I refered to in previous posts. It's a dramatic, though simple, theme. Anyone know which score this is?

    In case anyone is interested, I have these recorded.

  4. During the Closing Ceremonies, Bocelli sang his song again. It's called "Because We Believe" ("Ama Credi Evai"), and was written for these Olympics. Hopefully they'll do a "let's review the moments of the games" set to JW's music at the end (still 40 minutes to go). I'll let you all know.

  5. I really hope that JW will be conducting this. I really missed him when he didn't come last year. The previous years' concerts were so great!

    I managed to speak to someone at the BSO who could tell me Williams will be there:

    May 12, 8pm, May 13, 2pm, May 16, 8pm.

    "Film Night

    Orchestral film music brings emotion and excitement to the big screen. On May 12, 13, and 16 the thrills come to Symphony Hall when the Orchestra performs selections from many popular movies, with the accompanying film clips. The visual element adds another level of excitement to familiar tunes from Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and many more familiar favorites. The conductor will be announced in February (they have told me it will be JW)."

    I'm still thinking of going to Tanglewood though because I don't think the full SW suite will be played in Boston...

  6. I guess there was a problem with the links. I'm not sure what you heard, but try these on my own website instead:

    Anti-Nazi: link removed (should be Brokaw talking about an Italian hero)

    Home Depot: link removed (should talk about superheroes)

    Moderator's note: please use the PM system to exchange sound files

  7. Yeah, they're not JW, I agree. No clues about the first one? I'm almost positive it's from a film score.

    What's wrong with the Home Depot clip? It works fine for me.

    those 2 clips aren't John Williams,that's all I can tell you.

    dude,your Home Depot clip is messed up...

    K.M.

  8. I've uploaded the two pieces of music that I was talking about. Any info would be appreciated, especially about the first one. I consider the Home Depot music to be the best TV commercial music I've ever heard.

    Anti-Nazi (from some film score): link removed

    Home Depot Commerical music: link removed

    Also, I listened to the samples of the Emperor's Club on Bestbuy, and it didn't sound like what they played at the end tonight...

  9. That's great! Any idea about the anti-Nazi music? (It's a soft brass beginning with snare drum, then builds to a string section, and finally fades back to the soft brass.)

    And I do have most of the NBC music recorded (voiceovers, though, from the ladies free skate), in case anybody is interested in some of the music.  

    I believe that's the clip i just put up,but I got a clean version.I first heard it at the beginning of the women free skate.

    Get it here:

  10. I actually used the melody from the piano reduction of Across the Stars for my audition (on French Horn) to the MIT Wind Ensemble. The director, who is used to hear Mozart and Strauss horn concertos was very happy with my choice (and in past years I have used excerpts from the LoTR and other scores.) The director knows, though, that I have a strong passion for listening to and composing film music.

    Dont ask why I named this thread that.

    Is it just me or is John Williams not getting the recognition he deserves.

    For instances I am playing Across the Stars for my piano recital and I had piano practice today. My piano teachers tells me I have to eliminate one or two lines because its to boring and we might lose a few people in the audience...WOW!!!! But of course if I said i wanted to remove a line from Fur Elise she would have shot me.  

    You don't have to reply to this but I just wanted to say how stupid my piano teacher is.

  11. Ok. I'll check it out.

    I also really enjoy the Edelman theme from Briscoe County Jr. that they play each time they announce upcoming events. Does anyone have a "pristine" recording of this, without voiceovers? (They didn't play this during the first night's broadcast, so I sent them an email asking why they didn't. Since then, they've played it everytime time they announce the upcoming events. Not sure if my email had anything to do with it.)

    And I do have most of the NBC music recorded (voiceovers, though, from the ladies free skate), in case anybody is interested in some of the music.

    I also love the music from the "Superheros" Home Depot commercial. Anyone know anything about who composed it, or how to get it without the voiceover? (I also have this music recorded, with voiceover.)

    Too bad the Olympics are almost over. The music is so great!

  12. Does anyone know which Horner score that was?

    The "some song" was by Andrea Bocelli.

    Also, which score are they using everytime they talk about that guy from Italy who helped defeat the Nazis? He will take part in the Closing Ceremonies, but they keep showing a preview of him with the music.

    They just played the full broadcast end credits.1)abbreviated Call of the Champions,2)some song,3)Some James Horner music(I think)

    k.M.

  13. Hi-

    I'm new here and wondering about a certain theme that I heard for the first time during these Olympics...

    It played every day at the end of the broadcast when they told us the events that would be on the next day. It also played a few bars during the night, when it said "Coming up...".

    Is this the new "Return to Athens" theme?

    Thanks,

    Scott
