Bucket Of Sads: Movie Maestro Edition!


Hasn't John Denver taught us anything? One of the most prolific movie composers of our age is gone, and while he's being heralded for scores like "Titanic," his music for Natalie Wood's final screen appearance is still his best and most adventurous.

Will have to give a listen. Went off Horner after Titanic- a faux-Irish score about a British ship because, well, Horner liked faux-Irish new age scores.

Yeah, I’m very mixed on his entire output, but this one holds up surprisingly well.

I feel the same as you regarding Horner's Titanic soundtrack: I was especially turned off when one summer's night a neighbor had her cd on "repeat" for Celine (insert unhappy moticon) Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Apparently the neighbor fell asleep, despite the caterwauling on that song.

Good lord! That sounds nightmarish!
