There’s still quite a few titles missing from that list. I believe this should be complete:   Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) Cue List Composed by John Wi

Spielberg seems to really be against deleted scenes (except for a few occasions) and commentary tracks for whatever reason. I wonder what kinds of things we'll get... in the future

It's an early Hans Zimmer BWAAAAM.

Temple of Doom: Once in a Vial.

I love his play on words, but I'm kinda confused on why the cue lists has a bunch of the top crew members names? Was it just to be funny?

It's unusual in his work, although there are other isolated instances in other scores: George's String Cluster, Wompi's Wrench, etc. No idea why there's so much of it in this score specifically, or why he went so zany with it.

 

EDIT: It would be really funny if he did the first couple of these and then someone else joked, "Hey, where's my cue?", and then it just became a running gag. But that's pure speculation on my part.

IIRC we don't know what they all are because the sheet music only leaked for one of them and none of them were used in the film.  You can hear/see Faleel's mockup of the one we have sheets for here

Since someone brought up inserts, I have a question about those: how are they created? And when I say that, I mean who’s idea is it to ask JW to go re-record something else, either something stupid small(On the Tank 2nd insert(when Indy shoots 3 Nazis)versus a big insert(Imperial March section at the end of AOTC)). And I know every case is different, but is there a general reason why he’s asked to make inserts?

Yeah it would just be because Spielberg (or any other director, maybe even a high-ranking producer on certain films) had a certain musical approach in mind, and JW didn't deliver exactly what they wanted for that moment.

 

Usually the majority of the cue still works and they just patch up the small section that doesn't land as intended. The ending of 6m2 Discussing the Book vs the revised insert is a perfect example of Spielberg and Williams having totally divergent musical interpretations for how to close that scene. I would say Williams was totally off the mark with that first approach, but for all we know he was told to score that moment dramatically/seriously by Spielberg during the spotting sessions (and they only realised it was the wrong approach after hearing it).

That makes sense. I wonder if they give him a reason when they ask him. Kind of like how when they rearranged the ending of The Last Crusade, I think in the video on the dvd, George was the one saying they would edit it for the stronger section of the Raiders March as they exited the Canyon.

I wasn't sure about this but I thought I'd ask. I started a project last week of making tracks based off of the Indy trailers, and one particular spot is giving me some trouble. Each trailer tends to use part of the Raiders March and a chunk of the Desert Chase. At the end of the Temple of Doom trailer, we hear the buildup as Indy forces the Jeep over the cliffside(from Desert Chase). As the trailer ends, there's a final bang and it fades out. My question is, does anyone recognize where it comes from? Its definitely not from that same section from Desert Chase. The beat I'm talking about is at about 1:17 in the video.

I suspect they took one of the orchestral hits from 4:30-4:39 from Desert Chase (on the ost version- the truncated one) That’s my guess at least.  
 

orrrr maybe one of the stabbing horn blasts at 4:59?

 

 

BTW- could you IMAGINE a franchise hero today with a teaser trailer with its last shot being a dude slowly catching on fire? I’d like to see Disney try THAT on Indy 5;)

I remember watching the trailer as a kid(was born in '99 but i think i first saw Doom when i was 7 or 8 and i knew then which one was my favorite), and the fact that it ends on a cliffhanger is wild. You don't see fire, so without any prior knowledge you're left to wonder why there's a guy in a cage being lowered into a mysterious cavern. It's such a great trailer because it leaves you wondering what the heck is going on. Short and sweet.

It almost sounds like the climax of Map Room Dawn

That was my second guess as well.

I think I've got it. I believe its the blast at 5:03 on the short version of Desert Chase. Thanks guys!

Speaking of Cue titles...I just learnt that "Keeping up with the Joneses" and "Eye to Eye" are english idioms!

 

:D

I had to scroll down to this definition, which was the third suggestion because the first two were confusing.

To those of you who also have a copy of the handwritten score of "The Last Crusade", I always wondered if its "normal" that the pages of the cues 10m3/11m1 "On the Tank" and 11m4/12m1 "Canyon of the Crescent Moon" are half blank? Or is it just an issue with my copy?
