It's now (or will be tomorrow) five years since James Horner's death. I still feel the loss from my film music interest.

Today, as it's Sunday and I can listen freely to music away from work, I've started with Krull. Field of Dreams will make an appearance at some point, amongst whatever else I feel I want to play.

I didn't realize the date but I started this morning with Wolfen.
Playing a little Grim Dawn over coffee I wanted some horror, but nothing too pushy - something smooth; something level-headed but emotive, qualities which usually lead me to the Horner stack.
And it worked perfectly.

I played LLLs BRAVEHEART & SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISCHER Friday and yesterday, unaware of the anniversary.
But then I will listen to an old Horner soundtrack on any given day in general.

My guess is that he will.

We all have a relatively limited time on this earth. The best we can hope for is to leave something of a legacy behind and that's exactly what Horner did with his music, which is enjoyed and valued continually.

not ashamed to say that I was crying while listening to the end credits of Apollo 13.

Not a lot of days I don't listen to Wrath of Khan or The Rocketeer.

Tomorrow I'll plan on giving Titanic a spin. When he died I found myself listening to Bobby Fisher and Sneakers a lot.

Been listening to Cocoon: The Return, not even realizing that Mr. Horner passed away five years ago this week.

If there ever was "a natural" he was it.

I was reminded by a Gary Kester post on FB. frown

I never felt so crushed over the loss of a celebrity before. Never felt crushed over the death of a celebrity period before) With everything going on in the world I forgot about the anniversary of his passing. Ironically I played The Rocketeer yesterday too. His music will fill me with great joy until the day I die.

Here's my post the night we learned of this dreadful news.

I remember that tribute. It is still touching.

Listened to Field of Dreams today.

Like many Horner fans, I've been listening to the expanded Legends of the Fall lately, but Horner's scores are usually on my playlist most days.

Five years though. Really doesn't feel that long.

I have this playlist that I call "The James Horner Radio Show." It's a list of cues I'd play if I had a James Horner slot (maybe 2 hours) where I play his music and talk about his work. I make sure I play it every year on this date. Like Solium, I was crushed by his death, more moved by his passing than any other celebrity. He formed my love of film scores and I will always love the rich tapestry he created.

He was taken from us far too soon.

I miss him too. But, he was not 'taken from us" he was endeavoring in dangerous maneuvers that he did not execute safely. He loved a dangerous hobby. I am sure that he very much enjoyed his flying, but if he had not flown that day, or he was a more expert pilot he would still be composing today.

Oh Jesus. Thanks for crapping on it.
