Apologies if this has been already posted. Nice video of the whole 1987 July 4 Boston Pops concert, w/ Williams at the helm, up on YouTube. Feat. Johnny Cash!

 

One of the first performances of  "We're Looking Good," at 1:15:40.

Wow, between this and "And Baby Makes Three," what a stretch it's been for previously unheard Williams.  Actually, I always thought "We're Lookin' Good" was some kind of cheesy song Williams had written.  How excellent to discover it's actually a playful cousin to 1941!

Well this turned out more convincingly than I thought it would:

 

 

Disconcerting and funny at the same time.  But don't give the Studios any ideas for when they reboot the film.

This is really excellent with some great orchestral sound effects. I'd love to hear a longer version and I hope they do more John Williams music (they release a new video every Friday)

 

 

Here is Harry Potter:

Not sure if it's the right thread for this, but I randomly heard a few guys playing some themes from Star Wars at the Ravenheart International Film Festival at the Cinemateket in Oslo. I had just finished watching a film, and managed to film the ending of their performance.

 

The band's name is El Dorado, and from my understanding they specialise in film music. Here is their Facebook page and Instagram page.

Not a YouTube clip, but my occasional "John Williams year:2021" Spotify search yielded this today.  They also do "The Shire" and the Sleeping Beauty Waltz.

Here's a fun one! 

"Professional Musicians Discuss John Williams"

 

Funny watching them find stuff we've been dissecting for eons ;) Would love to have seen them get off the beaten path though

Now I'd like "Music Theorists React to Professional Musicians Reacting to John Williams."  Paging @Falstaft

 

If you had "CEO of Patreon comparing John Williams to Skrillex" on your bingo card today, congratulations.

 

Music theory Youtube has taken off in such a crazy way over the last few years, I find many of them entertaining although I'm never quite sure of the veracity of the content of many of them.
