As a young, naive collector I bought Coma because I loved Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Needless to say this track and "Disco Strut" were a bit of a shock (I had bought the cassette, which did not credit the guy who wrote "Disco Strut" and arranged this version of the love theme, so I thought they were both Goldsmith!).

The original link was shut down, so for those of you who feel the need to "get down" with JG's Theme fom Coma:

zooba, the title of this thread of yours made me smile, so thank you for that.

I can easily picture Goldsmith wearing his own "Tony Manero"-style Disco suit circa 1978, but I think he would be disgusted the entire time he was winning the dance contest.

Would someone please superimpose "shaggy hair" Jerry over the iconic John Travolta Saturday Night Fever pose and post the photo? I think we--that is, I-- need that.

And for the true Goldsmith experts out there... did Goldsmith arrange the disco version of his love theme and conduct it, or did he have no involvement in it at all? I have a feeling he would've loved the challenge and did it himself. Anyone know? Jeff, maybe?

And for the record... whether Goldsmith was involved or not, I LOVE the disco version(But DESPISE that "Disco Strut" atrocity!).

It was reported here by Don Peake himself, credited author of "Disco Strut", that he arranged the disco version of the love theme, at JG's request.

I'm lousy at searches here, so I don't have a link for you, JC.

THE AMITYVILLE HORROR 1979 disco frenzy. Not as good as COMA's but sort of fun.

I actually love this cut. It sounds more funk than disco, and has those awesome keyboard solos.

I wonder if the Quartet release credits an arranger (outside of the "Disco Boogie Consultant").

Most FSMers are ill equiped to handle anything other than the original cues, but me, I love me some re-records and especially Discofied versions of them.

Take Dave Grusin's Discofied take on "The Electric Horseman." Not only is it the greatest western film of the 1970s, "Disco Magic" captures the spirit of the pioneering American west.



The lyrics alao sum up the American Spirit and the brave generation who endured Disco, casual sex, awful hair, "pilly" polyester clothing, and the highest divorce rate in history. Heroes all.

Good disco is never endured, always enjoyed.
Enduring applies to post 80s junk such as grunge, house, rap, hiphop, hipster wailing.
Current clothing is not exactly an uplift. Capries, toe slippers, you know the Wall-Mart smoking. Either that or sleeveless undershirts, velvet track suits or the jeans and long sleeved T-shirts that look like someone left a black pen in the washing machine.
Then there's the hair. From the three lane black top to the Emo to the hair helmet with the "in an car with the side windows open" look.

The more I get to know the so called good of the now, the more I forgive the bad of the then.

D.S.
