So, did anyone catch the reference of the episode's name? Did anyone listen? I'm doing these English episodes for you guys (even though you may be well aware of the music in this particular case).

I didn't listen yet. You mean the Kunzel album? That used to be a tentpole of my film music listening!

Btw, the Scott episode doesn't seem to include SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME, does it?

 
 
 Posted:   Nov 28, 2013 - 4:19 AM   
 By:   Thor   (Member)

Indeed, that's the reference.

No, while I mention SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME in the Scott episode, I don't play anything from it. I don't believe it's been released?

Thanks for the comment!

Yeah I caught the Kunzel reference and enjoyed the show. You're right that nothing had been released from that Scott film. I have the Sting version of the title song on a CD single somewhere - but aside from the NAO version of Memories Of Green, no score music has a commercial release.

Yeah, that's a shame really. A Michael Kamen score for a Ridley Scott movie -- that should sell some tickets right there.

btw, thanks for the comment over at Celluloid Tunes, Mike. Sometimes, you need some feedback like that to keep it going. smile

Nice episode, Thor!

By the way, your list above omits the track from ARMY OF DARKNESS. smile

It does! Thanks for the correction, Nils.

You should have actually played a track from that album!

I should! Like most of you, that album played a crucial part in my film music upbringing -- sound effects or not.

I liked that they had these distinct concepts for their albums. They did quite a bit of arranging of the pieces, too, which often benefitted the music IMO. And they even included unreleased stuff like Black Hole or a Moonraker Suite or the Poltergeist theme with lyrics (these were on Fantastic Journey). Or these synth pieces especially composed for their albums (on Time Warp and Star Tracks). And they had liner notes. Do kids today listen to compilations like these?

Well, Silva Screen are still releasing compilations like these. The difference, of course, was that the Kunzel albums had an extremely 'tight' sound quality and performance. Often, many rerecordings have a tendency to sound 'washed-out', but the Kunzel discs seemed bristling and sparkling, for some reason.

I didn't realize that Moroder actually has some orchestral elements in his Neverending Story music. Who's the conductor?

Also a nice track by Beite.

No idea. The same conductor who did the Doldinger bits??

Quite a special coincidence as I finished my episode (with the inclusion of THE LION IN WINTER) just as I read the news about O'Toole.

My christmas favorite is Trevor Rabin's Jack Frost from 1998, a score which shows that christmas music even can have a rock-vibe. Familiar with that one, Thor?

Here is "Frostbite":

And my favorite version of Walking In The Air is Tangerine Dream's arrangement from The Keep..

 By:   Thor   (Member)

Yeah, I remember you liking JACK FROST, FB. It's a nice cue, although I'm not sure it gives me Christmas associations, exactly.

I wasn't aware that TD had made a version of "Walking in the Air". I'll check that out.
