What's your favourite John Williams score?
hard to choose right? there's a lot.

There is a rule not only why it's your favourite but why it is your favourite.

For me has to be - home alone.
Reason ; mixing christmas with empathy, joy and hardship in christmas

GO!

Can't stand classical music

But even I think the music from Star Wars was fantastic - it's one of the things that made the movies so special

Spine tingling stuff

That's probably just the acoustics in the nursing home.

Superman 1978
Reason: it's got brass for days ...and it's slightly over the top.

I used to whistle that when my next door neighbor came home (he was a twat, wanker and braggart)
He never got the joke.

To give a serious answer because I love classical music.

70s - Close Encounters Of The Third Kind. I wonder if it was John Williams who came up with that distinctive duh duh duh duh duh melody.

80s - Indiana Jones films. Lots of suspense and resolution visuals that the music subtly accompanies.

90s - Saving Private Ryan (possibly Schindler's List but I've not seen that since 1993 so can't remember the musical score)

If I try to sing a bit of the Superman theme, then Indiana Jones, then Star Wars (yes my evening is flying by), I can't do it. I can only keep one or two in my head at once.
They are annoyingly similar, but all excellent.

Exactly my point.

The only one I really know is Star Wars.
