That's so strange. An old woman I'd never seen before who looked like she knew me handed me one of these and said "Come back to me"...

(I just watched season 2 of Childrens Hospital which referenced that scene. Lots of other fun movie references...the Jefferson Institute from Coma, the live-TV finale from Tootsie...)

For me, besides from the 123-punch of YOLT, OHMSS and Diamonds, 1980-81 is pretty much peak Barry.

1979 wasn't too bad either.

By 1982 a good friend had been urging me for years to watch SCTV, which NBC-TV aired latenights on Fridays. Well, that was prime dating time for me; plus I didn't own a VCR and didn't like Saturday Night Live, so I incorrectly assumed SCTV would be more of the same. But when I finally gave the show a try, I was stunned to find that the writing was so clever and layered, and the entire cast was not only talented but so versatile.

Yet the topper was that even though my friend is a fellow film-music fan (and a musician himself), he hadn't given me a clue about SCTV's repeated reliance on cues from different soundtrack albums now and then, rather than generic stock music: CHINATOWN behind a detective sketch, THE WIND AND THE LION for some segment I don't identify now.

And for a running soap-opera parody, SCTV used the theme from SOMEWHERE IN TIME. Those specific recurring sketches within the series were at the same time hilarious and, by the initially unexpected injection of John Barry -- beautiful.

Have this on pre-order from MM. This certainly feels like a Black Friday title. Funny since it's Christmas in July. I know cause Hallmark told me so.

For many years Mervis Diamond Importers used Jerry Goldsmith's music from The Mummy in their radio ads. Specifically, the Taureg Attack track to underscore the adventure of mining for diamonds I suppose.

Now they're using John Barry's Somewhere in Time theme to emphasize the romance of giving diamonds.

Good taste in music if nothing else, LOL.

Lalaland has a strong connection with Universal. I hope MV will give us a premiere release of the John Barry / Ken Thorne collaboration of THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS in the not too distant future. The other titles in the above list would also be welcomed.

I'm surprised people are discussing the use of film music (particularly Goldsmith) on SCTV but not mentioning how one of his Twilight Zone TV scores (Nervous Man in a Four-Dollar Room, I think) was used repeatedly as "3D music."

You're right -- but for me that was a delayed-reaction laugh, because I never recognized what SCTV's recurring "3D music" was until a few years later, when Varese Sarabande issued their Twilight Zone LP containing that particular Goldsmith score. (Then I laughed from recognition in front of my turntable, instead of the TV!)

I also had no idea that was JG/TZ until those Varese Twilight Zone releases.

Mine arrived today. Only had a chance to listen to the first two tracks and a few choice alternates, and I'm loving what I'm hearing so far! To my ears, it's definitely different than the Debney re-recording, and it sounds absolutely beautiful! big grin

That question mark was supposed to be a thumbs up symbol. Pardon me.
