Jerry Goldsmith. 17 years gone today. So sorely missed.

What score / scores will you be listening to today in tribute? I have Papillion and Islands in the Stream in front of me.

Great choices! First Blood, Legend, and Final Conflict for me. Plus The Edge, Total Recall and finish it up with POTA.

My (fairly random) choice from each decade for today's listening:

1960s: The Flim Flam Man - the recent LLL release sounds amazing for the age and it's a delightfully charming effort, with plenty of hints at better known later scores.

1970s: The Swarm - again, LLL did wonders with the original tapes and it sounds heaps better than the original Prometheus release. While the movie is probably worse than most of the disaster epics that JW scored, I find Jerry's score much more entertaining and fun. You can really hear it looking forward to his 80s style quite a bit too and the pre-Rudy-esque leaping main theme is infectious as hell.

1980s: Poltergeist II: The Other Side - one of those scores that I just don't know that well, but some of the choral writing is terrific and, as is usually mentioned, the opening track, The Power, is great, but it's just not as good as the original or distinctive enough on its own.

1990s: Mulan - still one of his finest scores of the period, full of great themes, terrific action writing and with gently effective Chinese mannerisms (not exactly authentic but that doesn't really matter), it's criminal (law) that it's still not had an Intrada or Legacy edition. It's not exactly difficult to find one of the many unofficial "deluxe" editions that essentially combine the Academy promo (he was robbed!) and the official/pitiful original soundtrack album.

2000s: Looney Tunes: Back in Action - If not quite going out on a high, it's certainly a fun, tuneful and energetic score for one of his most loyal collaborators.

Not sure what I can say that will be enough. He brought many many hours of entertainment and pure joy to me and others.

I created a smart playlist with instructions to play only Jerry Goldsmith cues between 4:59 and 6:00. I then hit shuffle!

Rest in Peace Maestro. Your work will always be a treasured gift to us all.


Starting with a little GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY and then a wonderful trip down Goldsmith Memory Lane with a multitude of his musical delights.


Is that Jar Jar Binks running in those final seconds of the POWDER gif above?

This is tough because 7/20 is my birthday. I will always remember hearing the broadcast on my local NPR the day after and how I had to sit down and take a moment. I think they played Christus Apollo in tribute.

Today I will be listening to The Mummy and Star Trek: The Motion Picture (two sentimental favorites for me personally) for sure and possibly selections from many others as well.

I don’t like remembering this date. I usually don’t post anything. But yes remember the day vividly and how sad it was. He had so much more to contribute to the world of film music. A real tragedy.

I have the same problem.

However, Jerry Goldsmith's passing away anniversary will forever be and remain a day off for me...because July 21st is just also the very date....of the national day in Belgium!

Happy National Day, Thierry. What is the proper name for the Holiday, in French?
