Conversation about the films starts somewhere around 40:00 in. And 1:15:25 in (mostly gushing about Barry).

The time stamps for the Barry cues are as follows:
  • 1:22:15 in. Main title demo (sax' and piano), with strings underneath. Immediately followed by Ottman's version.

    So, only one demo, singular, was played.

    Nice interview.

    Yes it’s the same demo cue that’s been floating around youtube for years. I’d love to hear the other six demo tunes, and hopefully the full score in the future.

    It's a shame to find out the surprise is something that's been on Youtube for years that I've already heard and certainly others have. A good surprise would have been all the demo cues.

    I've got about seven demos from GOODBYE LOVER.

    They're all variations of the same theme in different styles and tempo.

    Interestingly, round about the time he was funding the Prague recording of MISTER MOSES, Luc Van De Ven told me he was looking into funding a recording of the rejected GOODBYE LOVER score. Obviously it never happened, but he also told me a lot of the music had been recycled into something else, but didn't say what.

    Bearing in mind part of the GOODBYE LOVER theme sounds a lot like one of the secondary themes in ENIGMA, I'm guessing the score Luc was referring to is ENIGMA.

    How much was recycled, I wouldn't know. Maybe not even that much. Who knows.

    Goodbye lover was made in 1998, he wrote two scores this year and his last one in 2001, so you don't have many options...

    I've been going on about this score for years. It was recorded, it exists. Director and Barry fan, Wayne Kramer has listened to it and yet it remains unreleased. Assumption has to be it is trapped in rights and legal hell. A real pity....

    Have any other demos besides the one on YouTube made it into the wild?

    It’d also be nice to hear the full demos from Clash of the Titans. We heard some snippets back in December.
