ERNEST GOLD'S underrated little gem of a end theme march in a good fun film that didn't go anywhere when it was released and still is obscure-SAFARI 3000-82, What a fun cast as well.

MICHEL'S main opening theme from CATAIN SINBAD-63 - to me was the most emotional touching piece of music with dreamlike fantasy I probably ever heard. It reeks pure wonderment and beauty, The arraignment instrumentation and composition is magic. One of those pieces of music I prepare before hand to hear it as a special event[like holiday candy, once a year]so not to destroy the effect it has on me by playing it too often and losing it's potency.

A week or so ago I listed the life expectancy of film composers whose birthdays were from early February till early July that have passed on. Here I will list the composers whose birthdays were from early February till now who are still alive and there ages,-50's-15-60's-49-70's-30-80's-19- 90's- 4, So in this 5 month survey so far most living film composers are in their 60's then 70's, then 80's , then 50's and a few in their 90's.
