A garbage 1985 movie. If the Sci-Fi channel exited back in 1985 and was making movies, this would have come from them.

Music: Christopher Young
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCx7ziiNH6w (nudity warning; bare jiggly breasts an a good deal of 'em)

Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Catchy, driving, he kind of stuff that makes my love of scores come back to life. (1:50)
  • 3:12 in. (3:57)
  • 7:42 in. (0:30)
  • 8:22 in. This cue should be connected to the above one. (0:40)
  • 9:25 in. And this one connected to the above one. (0:27)
  • 12:43 in. (1:55)
  • 13:39 in. (1:21)
  • 15:18 in. (2:02)
  • 17:47 in. (0:42)
  • 20:32 in. (1:42)
  • 2250 in. (1:05)
  • 25:12 in. (2:44)
  • 29:38 in. (1:00)
  • 36:29 in. (1:31)
  • About 38:15 in. (1:23)
  • 40:30 in. (0:22)
  • 45:56 in. (0:36)
  • 49:10 in. (0:40)
  • 52:05 in. (3:57)
  • 56:21 in. (0:57)
  • 57:49 in. (1:21)
  • 1:05:14 in. (0:34)
  • 1:06:00 in. (3:44)
  • 1:10:59 in. There's a brief lull and it continues. (4:41)
  • 1:15:49 in. (1:48)
  • 1:1812 in. Leads into the end credits. (2:50)

    TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 44:22 (of cues cited)

    That's all but eight cues (I think; I did tiny skimming but could have missed brief cues).


    The score has not been released. Somebody rectify that!

    Here's a taste of that sweet sweet sweet writing: "Yeeaaahhh, get the fuckers!"

    Actually a good portion of the score was tracked into some WW II documentaries and that was released on CD, so you can get a good chunk of Wheels of Fire on there, along with his score to Getting Even. That was very early in Chris' career and getting him to talk about a release is nearly impossible, let alone actually pulling it off.

    Indeed a really exciting action score.

    I believe a good number of the cues have been released on the CD "U-boats: Wolfpack"

    edit. Roger beat me to it smile

    The same way it is impossible to convince him to release The Power frown

    Still, I'm grateful we have "U-boats: Wolfpack". Incredibly dynamic music, so much energy and verve.

    Trying to get him to release something like 'The Power" could only happen if you could pry it from his dead cold fingers and even then I doubt you get get him to give it up.

    Yes. Unfortunately, we all know this to be true. The true question is why? I have a hypothesis, but it is clear it will remain a mystery until Mr. Young cedes, if ever.

    It's no mystery, he just doesn't like a lot of his early scores for his own reasons (Performance,poor recording, he didn't like what he wrote at the time, etc)

    He's a artist, it happens

    Same with Horner and BBTS, Deadly Blessing and The Hand.
    He stomped on those early scores too.
    Maybe the persuasive DMD could release them via Note4Note now that he's working with CY?

    100% pulled from Wheels of Fire and Getting Even. Lots of great unreleased music from those two. Not high art, but fun.

    Wow! I had no idea there more of that sweet, sweet music. Bring it on, says I!

    Amazing that the music from that lowest rung film could fit those war docus so well. More proof, as if we needed to be convinced, of the genius of Mr. Young.

    Well, we've been friends for 35 years and have worked on a number of projects together.

    Roger I think has known him for I think at least 25 or 30 years and has worked with him as well on a number of projects.

    Trust me, we know the man all too well.

    By the way, I had the license lined up on The Power...Chris quashed it.
