OMG SO I'M NOT TOTALLY CUCKOO! lol I thought Chinatown was very popular, though I never really cared for it much...despite the fact that Nicholson might be my favorite actor (Easy Rider, The Shining, Cuckoo's Nest, and quite a few more).Me too. A lot better movie too
I can believe it took only ten minutes. After the haunting trumpet main theme there’s not much else of note. I use to own the full soundtrack CD and only listened to those few tracks that had the main theme.He had 10 days to write it after the first composer got fired.
Missed him in concert with the LSO (he was due to conduct, but his health deteriorated so he could not travel). However, this was played, and then played again as the encore. Love that part also!S U P E R G I R L
I Could be earing from 1.34 min to 2.34 again and again !
I saw him in a concert in Sevilla ( Spain) time time ago.
G r e a t !!!!!!!
I don't know, man! I fucking love it. That said, I can't listen to Goldsmith through anything but rose-tinted ear-glasses. But I guess when comparing with the rest of his work, it isn't quite there ... maybe.The one time when Goldsmiths inspiration failed him a little bit, in my opinion, is with the main theme — the Quatermain March — from "King Solomon's Mines".
I don't know whether it was at the insistence of the producers or director, or if it was Goldsmith's own idea, but what he came up with, is clearly an attempt at an heroic "Indiana Jones"-like march. And, as I think most will agree, he didn't quite pull that one off - in fact, it's a pretty weak effort. (Which, more than anything, proves, if any such proof were still needed, what a unique genius musical invention the "Raiders March" actually is.)
Most everything else in the "Solomon" score is vintage high-quality Goldsmith though.
