    That playlist reads gorgeous, Thor. I can see that you have discarded the Streitenfeld material from "Prometheus" altogether in favour of that great "Live" theme composed by Gregson-Williams. I wish he had done the whole score.

    I don't. I'm in the minority but I like what Streitenfeld did. Probabaly the only thing that actually worked in that shitty film. I thought John Williams' music from The River ... errrr... I mean, Gregson-Williams "Life" theme was over used in the movie.

  1. It was. I have to check "The River". I have not listened to that score in ages. What the "Live" theme does remind me of is the "Crypton" theme from "Superman".

    Great programming again, Thor. A lot of the modern scores are relatively unexplored to me, however popular, so it's useful to be reminded of how much great film music has been composed even over the last couple decades. Perhaps another program for fantasy music pre-1980s?smile

    Thanks, Mark.

    Absolutely. WIZARD OF OZ, for example. I wonder if that is the earliest "fantasy" film?

    Also, I have many things planned for Golden Age material beyond that genre.

    Not even close.
    Fantasy and fairytale films were shot by Meliés and others even in the late 1890s and early 1900s.

    Well, yeah, I guess you could call Meliés' films fantasy in a way -- although not in the contemporary sense of the word.

    Is The Wizard Of Oz contemporary? smile

    And even if you wouldn't count Meliés (but I can't for the life of me see how you couldn't! He made films including gods, mermaids and dragons!), there are stil dozens of fantasy films in the twenties and thirties to precede The Wizard Of Oz, like the magnificent 1924 version of The Thief of Bagdad, the 1915 version of Alice In Wonderland, The Golem from 1920, 1935's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and even Snow White from 1937 to name but a few!

    Yeah, many great ones in the 'expanded' definition of fantasy. It's a genre that is somewhat difficult to define (not to mention delineate from adventure and other things).

    I wonder if they called Tolkien's literature 'fantasy' at the time, or if that was a term applied to it later on. Perhaps you Tolkien experts can enlighten me.

  2. There is a Christmas song there as well, I forgot the title. And of course the song from On Her Majesty's Secret Service would count as well wink

    I really like Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown from OHMSS but I think I'm quite alone in that. Even most Barry fans hate it.

    Oh yes Thor, a very appropriate track too considering the film contains one of Peter O'Toole's finest performances.

    It's a great song, just doesn't fit the flow of the album for me smile . But it IS lovely.

    Here you go Thor....

    CHRISTMAS TREES ...obviously mimed as it's the original track

    As Pawel mentioned, it doesn't fit the flow of the album but in the film it was source music anyway.

    Really enjoy Broughton on Miracle on 34th St. While I prefer the older film from the late 40's I like his score over Cyril Mockridge's.

    Thor, I see I didn't give feedback on your webcast yet! Ouch.

    Good shows (I heard all the English ones and a few Norwegian), although I think this last one features music I don't care much about, like the Christmas Carol scores or other very Christmassy films. Never liked them much. I especially liked the Women in film music and your Horner episode. smile

    I think you should do a show about your 'religious sound' you so often talk about. Could be interesting!

    Thanks for the comments, Bregt! And that you took the time to listen. The exposure of these shows is very sluggish, which reduces my motivation somewhat (I don't have the money or apparatus to do much in terms of PR). But I'll try to be patient.

    The Christmas episode is more 'folksy', I guess -- an episode that regular folks can listen to while they bake cakes or wash the house or whatever. Although I personally love that sound myself, and know that several other film scores fans do too.

    And yes, an episode of the religious sound is DEFINITELY forthcoming!
