John Williams has written some of the most recognizable and memorable movie soundtracks in contemporary cinema. Any geek worthy of the moniker will instantly identify the themes to Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones, and Harry Potter (to name but a few) just by hearing the first few bars. But to me, the one that still manages to raise the hair at the back of my neck is this celebrated composition for Superman : The Movie.[youtube http://youtu.be/9zgKB6fxasM]
Amazing! I’ve got goose bumps everywhere!
P.S. I was not able to find a good video of John Williams conducting his own work. Such a shame. But the music remains the same.
