The original soundtrack is ancient, long out of print, and has dialogue on it.

With the Blu-Ray coming out in a few months, perhaps one of our beloved soundtrack labels might consider putting this score back on the market in a remastered, possibly expanded, dialogue-free CD.

Anyone else interested in seeing this score get cleaned up?



I hope you all appreciate how comfortable I am with my masculinity by posting this.

I saw a copy at Amoeba the other day or so. LOVE this one and would gladly buy it again. Great themes and maybe one without the dialogue smile

"Macho" Sarge, so glad you posted this. I'd love have a CD sans dialogue.

I love this movie. I think almost every single scene is just perfect. I think it is one of my top 5 movies, and I love its exploration of the various "terms" for loving.

Gore's music is just great. I love how he uses the major theme to capture shifts in time and transitions.

My only complaint during the Oscars was giving MacLaine the Oscar over Winger. MacLaine was great, and I knew she'd win, but I always thought Winger's performance was just superb!

Did a few films, then did stuff for TV and did the music for that Broadway flop CARRIE, in which members of my cast back then kept on talking about how they were in it and how bad they thought it was thru the shoot of one of my films.

Lovely score. Would instantly pick up an expanded and remastered edition.

Gore also wrote the beautiful score for Albert Brooks´ "Defending your life" - highly recommended!

Really love the score, absolutely some highlights on there. However the movie is a bit to confronting for me, very good cast nonetheless.
Could it be there will be an isolated score on the Blu ray release?

You could opt for the sequel score (The Evening Star) by Williams Ross, which features some lovely renditions of Gore's original themes, plus some nice new ones by Ross himself.
It's much more widely available too!

I don’t know the score and it’s been a LOOOOONG time since I’ve seen the movie, but I love the theme. It’s right up there with St. Elsewhere in terms of time and place for me. Plus I love the synths.

Sarge, your manhood is obviously secure. Congrats.

Thanks for posting this, Sarge. I always loved this score but rarely listened to the CD because of the dialogue. I have to admit I willingly gave in to the film's blatant manipulation of my emotions, and 30 years after seeing it in the theater I still get a little lump in my throat when I hear the Main Theme. Now that I'm the father of an adult daughter, I probably would get really weepy watching it on DVD.

Add my name to the list of people who would definitely buy a score-only release.

And just over a year later, here it is -



TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (2-CD)
Music Composed by Michael Gore
Limited Edition of 1500 units
Release date: 09/08/2014



Quartet Records is proud to present the premiere release of complete score by Michael Gore (Fame, Defending Your Life, Pretty in Pink) for the deeply moving drama Terms of Endearment, a true Hollywood classic from the eighties, directed by James L. Brooks and starring Shirley McLaine, Debra Winger, Jack Nicholson, Jeff Daniels, John Lithgow and Danny DeVito.

The film won five Academy Awards in 1984 (including Best Picture and Best Director; Shirley McLaine and Jack Nicholson also won for their magnificent performances), and was nominated for another six (including Michael Gore’s original score)

The movie covers several years in the life of Aurora and Emma, a mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be; each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora's interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next-door neighbor are quite striking. In the end, different people show their love in very different ways.

Michael Gore, who had won two Oscars in 1980 for Alan Parker’s Fame (Best Original Score and Best Original Song), wrote a bittersweet score dominated by a memorable main theme that mixes love, drama and a kind of joie de vivre. Richard Hazard orchestrated and conducted the entire score, which became an eighties film music classic.

The soundtrack album of Terms of Endearment was released by Capitol Records in 1983, and reissued on compact disc in 1986. The program included a portion of Michael Gore’s score (specially edited for the album and mixed with film dialogue) and many songs heard in the movie. Our 2-CD set presentation includes on disc one the complete score with every cue written by Gore for the movie, presented in film order (including several alternate versions), and the Richard Hazard recordings of song standards not included in the final print of the movie (replaced – in some cases – by the original versions). On disc two we offer a newly remastered version of the original Capitol album, which has been out of print for years. Its concept – and the inclusion of the original songs – makes it an important souvenir of the film.

Mastered from original 3-track film masters (courtesy of Paramount Pictures) and the original album master (courtesy of UMG), the package includes a 16-page full color booklet with liner notes by John Takis.



This title is now available for order and shipping.
