Incidentally, if anyone *hasn't* seen the film, I hope the title of the last track doesn't give the ending away, LOL!!!

Cheers


Actually that's exactly what happened to me here. I hate it when track titles contain plot spoilers!!


Not sure I would could them 'plot spoilers' for a film that is 30+ years old though.

There's always a younger generation of films fans discovering classic movies of the past for the first time. I never saw Body Heat until a decade ago. So I always tend to dance around plot spoilers except for obvious, ingrained-in-pop-culture ones like Planet Of The Apes, Soylent Green, Citizen Kane, ect.

CHINATOWN & BODY HEAT (and FAREWELL, MY LOVELY to a lesser extent) created the false impression of how noir music sounded.
The endless parodies that use that type of music -usually accompanied by a Bogart sound-alike spewing 'hard-boiled' dialog- are actually parodying the the parodies/hommages of the 70's and 80's

Yes, I think Mr. Marshall has just about nailed it.



No, I'm afraid not. razz

It was 1981 and disco was still out there.

So don't miss Theme Demo #9 for a cool, 1981 version of the main theme!


Reminiscent of this, as far as "pop versions" of early '80s orchestral themes go:

if you want a great example of 40's noir music check out DEAD MAN DONT WEAR PLAID,
a comedy hommage to the genre featuring actual film clips AND Miklos Rosza's music!

Indeed. I am 27 and although I have been a movie buff since my childhood (not that I suppose I would watch Body Heat at the age of 12!), I still haven't seen many classic titles - including this one -, especially due to my primary dedication to the European cinema. In general terms, I think that the soundtracks should always avoid plot spoilers in track titles (maybe beyond something like "Death of Goldfinger"). Bernard Herrmann's brief track titles ("The Window", "The Death", "The Arrival"...) are fine example of viewer-friendly approach. Body Heat in particular is a film I never came across so far and even if I did now I don't think I would watch it due to this spoiler--or at least until I forget it.

Unless it’s a major surprise plot twist within a film, I’ve never understood this modern concern about divulging “spoilers” – a term which didn’t seem to be in use until the internet. Theatrical trailers up to say the ‘70s, when the style of trailers changed, were often like mini-films and regularly portrayed major plot elements, yet no-one ever complained. Nowadays, divulging the most innocuous plot points seem to be regarded as “spoilers”.

For anyone who has not seen BODY HEAT I can guarantee that knowing the title of that final track is not going to spoil enjoyment of the film in any way – it’s largely irrelevant to the progression of the main story.

I agree totally; of more importance is the spoiler indicated by the title to track 6 ... just when does that Cat make an appearance?

Agreed. Wholeheartedly. If you haven't seen this movie yet, see it ASAP, regardless of whether you have committed the track titles to memory or not.

Indeed some Prometheus titles are on sale. I can't find sample tracks anywhere for most Prometheus titles available. Besides the Barry scores Hammett and White Buffalo, I'm interested in Alex North's Africa and Bite The Bullet. Not familiar with the movies nor their music. Any links would be helpful.
