    No, I totally agree‚ÄĒassuming we're talking about the same alternate intro that's also used in this recording.¬† I just found the comment amusing.

    I'm not sure. It has been a while since you and I have had one of our signature one-on-one SpongeBob movie chats so I'm not sure how to effectively gauge your disinterest and assess whether or not it could possible increase.

    Jim Nova (https://jimnova.com/about/) is a huge John Williams fan and is a trombonist in the Pittsburgh Symphony.  
     
    I was looking at his YouTube page (https://www.youtube.com/user/jn1578) and came across this:
     
     
     
    Fun video and a great performance!

    From the YouTube page
    Turns out that many S.E. Shires trombone artists are huge football fans! So I decided to take my trombone arrangement of the NBC Football Theme, Wide Receiver, by John Williams (of course!) and expand it into a 10 part version! We all may root for different NFL teams, but we're all on the Shires Team!

    I've loved this cue since the first time I became aware of Qui-Gon's theme (many years after seeing the movie, of course), but it's funny you mention it now, @Jay.  In my May the 4th soundtrack binge this year, I was listening to it on some new earbuds, and for the first time ever picked out the high contrapuntal stuff playing during the blast of Qui-Gon's theme at the timestamp you mentioned.  It's awesome!  It's like the high stuff (I can't even tell if it's strings or winds, and maybe a xylophone or triangle?) is swordfighting with the theme.  Once you hear it, the track is even more exciting than it was to begin with.

    I've been mainlining Star Wars tracks for two days, as is my custom this time of year, and wasn't it a treat to hear this little chestnut spontaneously evolve into existence about a minute into "You Got a Name?" from TFA, as Han leads Rey, Finn, and BB-8 into Maz's bar...

    I dunno, I'm not even close to as big a Giacchino fan as some on the board (I run hot and cold on him), but for a while there it really was impossible to have a thread conversation about Gia without having to sift through a lot of negativity and roasting of him and his music.

    Hey, you never know -- maybe Haab was inspired by the motif at 1:06 (which is exactly the first 6 notes of Solo's Han Theme) when writing "Han's Kessel Run" for Battlefront II. And then Williams was inspired by Haab. And around it goes.

    igger6 got a reaction from Tiburon in Marvel Fanfare Showdown: Giacchino vs. Tyler   
    Tyler's fanfare (like much of his work overall, in my opinion) has bombast without heart.  It's a six-note motif that truly goes nowhere other than to repeat itself with the slightest pitch changes here and there.  It's the same basic structure four or five times in a row.  It also relies solely on ballsy brass and minor-key menace.  It's hummable, but to hum it takes five seconds.
     
    Giacchino's theme, on the other hand, has two distinct sections, the first of which has a neat, rising and falling, call-and-response pattern of six notes each, incorporating some sonic diversity (high woodwinds!), and the second of which brings the orchestral wallop a la Tyler's theme.  It's as if the first half of the theme illustrates the wondrous existence of superheroes and their noble intentions, and the second half says, "Aaaand you get to watch them PUNCH EACH OTHER!!!!  BAM BAM BAM BAM!!"  Best of all though, both halves actually sound happy.  It sounds like something that could actually underscore the sillier early days of Marvel Comics.
     
    Plus, I like Gia's opening ostinato better.  Tyler's sounds like every other in-vogue ostinato of the past ten years.
