One of the soundtracks I've always wanted, even long before I started collecting soundtracks, is Alan Silvestri's score to the first Grumpy Old Men movie with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

There's one cue in it specifically that makes it a must, spoilers ahead for those who haven't seen the movie:

When Gustafson (Jack Lemmon's character) has his heart attack after leaving the bar. The cue being played in that sequence is worth 20 bucks alone in my book. Absolutely love it, so sad and beautiful.

Never been released, except for a bootleg. Perhaps something for La-La Land Records to sink their teeth into?

I would love to have both of the Grumpy Old Men scores. Since they're Warner titles, I wonder if La La Land can pursue these. It's a great Silvestri score.

Both scores from both films were pleasant. I listened to my cassette tape of GRUMPY OLD MEN, many times years ago. a new cd would be very welcome.

Though Silvestri practically copy-pasted the main theme from Father of the Bride.

Still would be nice to have the scores though....
