  1. Okay, the concensus seems to be that album track 12 must be split at the 1:50 mark. This sounds right to me, from what I remember of the film, so I'm amending my chronological listing above.
  2. Boy am I glad I didn't post the spoiler I was going to. It's as I feared. When somebody quotes your text, the purple background means that the text which was once hidden by being white on white is no longer hidden. See four posts above this one.
  3. "Enter Lord Vader" was the track I was least sure about. Where you say makes sense. That would put it between Padme's Ruminations and Anakin's Betrayal. As I said, the film was so exciting, it was tough to always notice the music in isloation and then simultaneously try to remember which album track it might be. I'll update my first post accordingly. Please keep the corrections coming.
  4. Thanks. I'm actually deleting what I wrote. Even hidden like this, I just don't like the idea of spoilers. But I do hope people give me corrections for the chronological listing.
  5. Mistake, sorry. Couldn't figure out how to write those hidden spoilers that you have to highlight to read.
  6. I'm pretty sure it's all there, you certainly hear it open, and the big climax of the piece ends the duel. It's possible that the piece was edited in some way, it was hard to focus on the music when the film was so exciting.

  8. Aside from everyone else's top picks, GoldenEye and Pirates of the Caribbean, I thought "A Very Long Engagement" last year had an atrocious score. The movie was decent, a bit too cutesy and quirky when a straight romance would have been more powerful, but everything was undercut by the droning, monotonous, synthesizer-sounding score. I was afraid when I saw Badalamenti's name months before the film came out. He does a certain sound well, and it suits certain films, like Mulholland Drive, which need a spooky, odd, lonely atmosphere, but Engagement needed big, sweeping thematic music, orchestral
  9. Wow, just watched the downloadable version. Everything I see makes me more excited about this. But then that's the same with every Spielberg film, the man knows cinematic storytelling like nobody else alive. In two hunderd years, when all the other current directors are long forgotten, I think people will look back on him the way we look back on Dickens or Shakespeare, as one of the few genius mainstream storytellers in the English language.
  10. I had to watch LoRes as well, anything higher froze a few seconds in. The video was too awful to really know what I was looking at, except the footage I recognized from the Superbowl spot. Looking foward to seeing this in Quicktime or some other decent format.
  11. Por Una Cabeza starts playing the moment the film cuts from Schindler in his apartment, getting dressed, to the nightclub. It is played by the violin, accordion and drummer with cymbal that you describe. It continues as he enters, bribes the maitre'd, sits down, surveys the club, and then brings the two Nazis and their Polish female companion over to his table. The film then cuts to chorus girls dancing to a period recording of some song called Die Holzauktion, according to the credits. Schindler never dances. Have you watched the film recently? Just curious. I hadn't myself, but popped the
  12. I've already checked all the online trailer music sites I could find, with no luck. As for the Nyman thread, I took a look at it, but I'm a Nyman maniac, owning every CD he's ever put out and loving about half of them. It seems most people here either A) have only heard two or three of his scores, B) don't like him, or C) have no familiarity with him. I have no problem with that, everyone has their tastes, but it doesn't make me want to start writing long posts here about him. Williams, on the other hand, is a composer I love just as much. He has so many CDs that I'm still not near to owning t
  13. I apologize, I hadn't read the instructions on track 11 clearly enough. I think you've got everything there. I went back and listened to th CD and looked for your edits. The cut of track 9 into two tracks is what I most clearly remembered, with the guitar solo playing as the woman's parents are freed by Schindler. You've done good work to list what needs to be done for a chronological album and again, I'm sorry I didn't look closely enough.
  14. A slightly odd question, the reverse of the usual "what movie is that trailer music from" line of questions. I was listening to "The Accidental Tourist" soundtrack tonight, and the first 5 seconds of track 11, a piano tune, sounded awfully familiar. I'm wracking my brain, but can't rememeber from where. I think it's a fairly recent trailer. It feels like it's the opening bit of a trailer, showing a family with an idyllic life, before it is torn to pieces by something horrible or something, but I have no idea what trailer this was used in. Any ideas?
  15. It's actually a bit more complicated than that. A number of album tracks have to be split and pasted to make a chronolgical album. I did this years ago onto an audio tape, which is long gone by now. I've been planning on redoing it on CD since I got the film on DVD but haven't gotten around to it. The lists above are a good start if you just want to program your CD, but if you want every piece in the right place, they're far from complete.
  16. It's a tango called "Por Una Cabeza." It's also played in True Lies at the beginning and end, and in Scent of a Woman. It's on the Scent soundtrack, in case you happen to have that. I would assume it is performed by the orchestra we see in the film, because there is no copyright information for the recording of the song in the end credits.
  17. There could very well be more about Williams's music on the DVD. While the shortened television version of the documentary is 90 mins, the full version of it on the DVD set runs two and a half hours, according to reviews and articles I've read at thedigitalbits.com and dvdfile.com
  18. Well, if people just don't want to agree, that's fine, free country and all. However, as I said, the differences were not tiny, they were often a full second or two. Literally. Sometimes even more. And the mismatches would be early and then late on the same piece sometimes. I can't believe any CD player would be able to play at such off speeds. And the differences were not just in the timing, but in instrumentation and the very playing of the instruments as well. These were noticable differences. I wouldn't consider anything but word from people who worked on the recordings themselves to be de
  19. Okay, I should have made this clearer. The reason I say that the whole album is a re-recording is that, although the tracks that match up to the film cues are approximate, the timing is subtly different. I played the DVD, while listening to the soundtrack album on my Discman. Although most of the pieces of music are nearly identical, there are always differences. Specific instruments come in a second or two later or earlier, and instrumentation varies slightly from the film versions. The only two cues that are represented absolutely identically on the album are Deadheading and Frank Connors, M
  20. Jason, Thanks so much for all of your own work in making this file viewable by all. James
  21. I've just emailed the Word file to Jason. Hopefully he'll be able to convert it so everyone else can use it. The album is entirely re-recordings, which often differ a great deal from the film cues, but it's pretty easy to make a CD of the album music in film order, it only involves cutting one track in half and switching the order of the rest.
  22. I just tried that, but when I previewed it, all my columns were gone, making it impossible to read. I wrote it in Word, and it seems like I can't just post it here.
  23. Hi, I finally got around to doing a cue sheet, chronological CD breakdown and CD analysis of CMIYC, which I'd been meaning to do for ages. I'd be glad to share it with everybody. I already emailed it to befan@hotmail.com, but haven't heard anything or seen anything here. Is he just away for a few days? Is there a better way for me to get it to whoever will post it on the CMIYC page? Thanks, James
  24. Two of my absolute favorite John Barry CDs (and I have almost all of them) are "Raise The Titanic" and "The Specialist." You can get "The Specialist" dirt cheap at amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00...3453083-6681754 Both are prime examples of Barry's lush sound, and "The Specialist" also has a huge range of styles, from Bond-ish action, to jazzy, sexy romanticism. It's the one I'd recommend. Barry seems to have a thing for writing amazing scores to godawful movies, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the music.
  25. It's from Jeff Beal's "Pollock" score. Go to this link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...=music&n=507846 and check out the track "Alone in a Crowd." Sorry to disappoint those who hoped it was Williams, but I'm sure he'll turn out something just as unexpected and fun.
