    I always smile when I hear "Getting Out the Vote." Such a fun composition to go with a great montage sequence.

    Listening to Lincoln. I remember when I heard this score for the first time in 2012, thinking that this might be it for Williams who turned 80 that year. Tintin, War Horse and Lincoln could have been the farewell, three masterpieces to show the versatility of his craft. But then Star Wars resurfaced, and he just kept going from highlight to highlight. Still hoping that there might be one or two more coming.

    Another great episode! I'm sitting here listening to Getting Out the Vote smiling like an idiot now. And incredible that you got to talk to a director. No pressure, but hoping for Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg at one point too.

    Trumpeteer got a reaction from Bayesian in What if Williams HAD scored Batman ‘89?   
    I am happy to see all the comments that have sprung from the information I gave on my podcast about Williams almost scoring "Batman." I never tried to ponder what the music would sound like, but I do believe Burton would have fought for Danny Elfman, unsuccessfully.
     
    The problem is that Jon Peters was the Harvey Weinstein of his day (minus the sex stuff) and no one said no to him. So, if Jon Peters had gotten John Williams that was the final decision. That is also part of the reason Prince got involved. Burton caved in to demands that Prince write songs and he has said often that he regrets that decision.

    The first year of "The Baton" is coming to a close. I'm so grateful to everyone who has been a part of this fun and insightful journey since the beginning, and thankful to those who found the podcast later and became new fans. I am very excited to get Year Two started, but for now, please enjoy the final episode of the year, which focuses on the film "Heartbeeps" and its very fine score by John Williams. See you in 2020 for 56 more episodes!

    I can't believe the 100th episode of this podcast is now available for the world to hear. Where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday I was nervously recording the first episode, then watching "Daddy-O" with excitement. Well, that was two years ago this month, and this only shows how fast time flies when you are having fun.
     
    Here's the 100th episode, covering the music from "Munich." People have said the score is boring and lifeless, but I think you need to hear it in the film in order to really appreciate it.

    The possibility of me exploring his TV scores deeper than I already have is very low. It's hard to track down exactly which episodes he scored, and which were taken from the Universal library. The concert works would be fun, but many of them were never recorded, so they are impossible to find. I have had some help finding some of the ones I feature in some of the episodes, but I can't imagine someone out there has, for example, one of the two performances of Symphony No. 1.
     
    I started working on this project two years ago this month. It required a lot of sacrifice from other things in my life, which I was very happy to do. Now, it is almost time to ride off in the sunset. I will do an "epilogue" episode after Rise of Skywalker, and that's probably the last one, unless a film score announcement comes.

    Yes, it is definitely the right thing to listen to the shows in order. Imagine reading someone's biography and starting on chapter 10?
     
    Don't rush through them. All episodes will remain available long after I finish the series in December.

    Purely by coincidence, the episode of "The Baton A John Williams Musical Journey" that I released yesterday discussed the score to War of the Worlds. This just happened to be the next film in my chronological survey of JW's film scores, and I knew nothing of this announcement of the expanded CD release.

    Brian Martell and I give this score a lot of love on The Baton. Here's the link to it if you haven't heard the episode. We play music only heard on the original CD release, though I agree there is a lot of good music left off.
