    AHHH!! Just today I have been listening to Superman IV... the only soundtrack I have from him.

    The irony shocked

    I also know him from his collaborations with the late Mr. Goldsmith, and of course his famous Star Trek themes.

    Life ends for us all! There's no escape...

    Sad news indeed. His theme to the original Star Trek is one of those tunes I often catch myself humming unconsciously.

    He will be missed.

    Courage never rose to the A-list (and I guess even the B-list was a bit of a chore), always being stuck with mediocre movies. His scores -whether on TV or film- were generally solid, though seldom truly memorable.

    He has however, through Star Trek, pased into popular memory, not only through the opening notes of the main theme, but also with the screeching MYAAAAAH MYAAAAAH effect (used first, if memory serves, in the episode Amok Time), that has become so synonymous with the idea of conflict that Jim Carrey even spoofed it on The Cable Guy.

    That he will be outllived by this memory already shows he's created something larger than life.
    Requiescat in pace, Alexander.

  4. I was saddened when I heard the news.

    I'm convinced that his music (along with many other composers) had an influence on me when I was a child (constantly hearing his music for Star Trek) and played a part in my love for film and TV scores I enjoy today.

    Like many people, my experience of his music was limited to his Star Trek music and, more recently his contributions to the Superman movies.

    Thank you, Mr. Courage and R.I.P.
