Definitely just a rework of the old song. I mean, musicians had copyright lawsuits on less similarities. 

Do you know Cole Porter? He's written hundreds of songs. And half of them sound similar to each other.    I think calling this an arrangement or a reworking is going a bit too far. They're j

Definitely can hear the similarity.New for me since I have difficulties to listen to these older scores.

I think calling this an arrangement or a reworking is going a bit too far. They're just similar. At least that's what I think.

I love Cole Porter, but don't find half of his output similar to each other.

I wouldn't say that it's a reworking because from what I can understand Williams rarely comes back to his older writtings. I think it's more a coincidence if Moonlight does clearly have a similar melody as Make Me Rainbows. Williams apparently did have twice the same idea and if not I'll go for a rearrangement

I guess, that's exactly the point.

And I would say, that is completely ok for a film composer writing between 3 and 10 hours of music per year and who states regularly that he hardly looks back at his previous works.

But still, it is musically almost the same song.

I know, How Can I Remember was there before, but it reminds me too much of Matthew Wilder's Reflection from Mulan which I like much better. So, to me Reflection always was the song that How Can I Remember longed to be but never was. I know, it's unfair, but that's how I feel about the song. I just knew the Mulan song first.

In a way, yes, although we can't know for sure untill we ask him. But I do think he used the same melodic idea and repurposed it for SABRINA.
