    Just post one a day a piece of film music wrote just for a film you think may be not well known and you enjoy.

    Going back a lot of weeks when they did a a program on Georges Delerue and was hoping an old favorite of his Nobody Runs Forever be played which they did not but quite liked this they did for Julia.

    Who did a program on Delerue? I'd like to hear that he has fast become one of my favorite film composers especially in his work with the great french directors.

    Here's one of my favorites from Hungarian composer Vig Mihaly he often works with Bela Tarr, this one is taken from Tarr's film The Werkmeister Harmonies.

    Well this was not going to be my one for today but seeing @systemsdead likes Georges Delerue and I dearly love this although I love to have the soundtrack to this film (a bit like one Hitchcock would have made)but its over £90 new and almost £50 used:eek: I'll make do with this heart rending one track. And sadly I think the blu ray is region A(time for a 4k methinks).

    Another reason I picked it its 30 years old and not a big mainstream as Casablanca or The Great Escape which gets lots of repeats on TV, so many even film buffs like you may not have seen it.
    BTW the film bombed, cost 14 mill and did not make .5 mill back:(

    My choice today is from Odd Man Out such a great film and an excellent score from William Alwyn.

    I remember this being reviewed by Barry Norman waaaay back when. It's one of those I've always quite fancied, but slipped of my radar. If you can cope with SD, a pre-owned dvd here will cost nearly a fiver including postage -
    Amazon.co.uk: Buying Choices: The House On Carroll Street [DVD]

    Then there's the Spanish bluray at £14.65 (including Post), which says all regions, but you would need to check there's an option to removing the dubbed version -

    The Island may have had the unfortunate pedigree of being a Michael Bay film, and acquired some harsh reviews (not to mention bombing at the box office), but I had a lot of fun with it. It's biggest plus point is the score by Steve Jablonsky, and this track in particular - My Name Is Lincoln(very Zimmer like, but that's a good thing imo).

    Funny I enjoyed it first time on viewing and bought the blu but not the second, the first half for me the best bit which is quite horrific without an ounce of gore
    the scene were they terminate the woman who just given birth then Michael Clarke who realises what there about to do, you almost feel like grabbing his arms and pullinging out of the screen. :eek: Shame he died at 54:(
    , but the second act is not as strong and mainly ruined by the editing.

    one of my favourite scores would be by Jerry Goldsmith for the John Milius flick The Wind And The Lion. Like John Barry, Jerry's scores always give me a feeling of sliding into a comfortable old pair of slippers. You always hear phrases that could have cropped up in their other scores. Some might call it a lack of imagination in the creative process, but I prefer to think of it as a thread that links all the scores together
    The Wind And The Lion score always sounds like it could have been written for an Arabian Nights film, to me

    One of my favorites of John Williams which the only time I ever hear it these days is when I dig my LP of it out, one by John that gets overlooked. Although classed as a TV Movie and is 1.33:1 aspect ratio was shown in at least my local cinema, then again the Man from UNCLE films were shown in the cinema.

    These two are highlights from Plaid's sublime soundtrack to Japanese anime film Tekkonkinkreet. You can't get the soundtrack itself for love nor money (except expensive import disc) but its available on YouTube in HD. Plaid are a UK duo and their brand of ambient electronica is right up my street. Film itself is pretty damn good too as I recall, although I'm not really an anime man.



    Tekkon Kinkreet OST 13 - White's Dream



    White's Dream might be the most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life.

    I'm more than happy to go on record as saying John Carpenter's Starman is one of my top ten films of all time, and I find the score utterly mesmerising. Jack Nitzsche does an absolutely stellar job with it.
    This track in particular, is the standout -

    Probably older viewers and film buffs will know this music so it's not exactly unknown, been a big fan of Sakamoto since his Yellow Magic Orchestra days this is is a superb live performance of this great piece of music.

    @Rambo John J one of my favorites Mr G (mind you I could say for all his they are my favorites) I got this LP when I was a member of the Jerry Goldsmith Society . Goodness knows I got in the post with it in one piece.
    Note the bit at 1.30 the signature bit I mentioned above.

    It's a bit too nasty for some tastes, but I thought Death Sentence, was very underrated, not least because of it's excellent soundtrack. It stars Kevin Bacon as a family man pushed to the edge and beyond, by some very bad folks...
    This short track by Charlie Clouser is called Sorrow, and is one of my favourites -

    Its a wonder he got away with that it sounds extremely close to Sigur Ros, I'll let him off though he did do some good work with Trent Reznor.

    One of my favourite tracks from Mica Levi's lovely Jackie score.

    Mica Levi - "Vanity" (Jackie OST)


    Wistful, dreamy and slightly playful in a melancholy sort of way.

    @systemsdead one of Delerue I posted in the quiz but you may not have played it not knowing who wrote it. It's very fitting music
    it even had a signature of a clock at the beginning which I missed before which plays a part in the film.

    One of my all time favourite scores is for Benjamin button it’s something I listen to on a regular basis, for me it’s Desplat’ best score, it’s beautiful, I’d recommend listening to the entire score.
    Here’s a track I adore (among many)
    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Nothing...
