    Jenny Wren is a great song from a great album. :)

    And what has Patrick Doyle done that was halfway decent?

    I think Goblet of Fire is mediocre at best. It's like sixth place out of the eight HP scores. Only the Nicholas Hooper stuff is worse.

    I gotta say, nothing on that list has ever even caught my ear. None of it seems to stand apart from the films. So, better than Williams? Not in my book... ;)

    His score for Great Expectations is pretty good

    Sure but JW is a wee bit beyond "pretty good."

    You should put "The Imperial March" on repeat until it surpasses Y&TY.

    "Caesar Rock" is a better song from a better album.

    So tell me, young master Christopher, what McCartney records shall we put on the jukebox?


    p.s. No school again here tomorrow. Tauntauns are keeling over left and right all around town. I think I might be able to pop in here for a grog or three.

    Hah Imperial March is no where near the top. I tend towards score tracks and not concert arrangements.

    Also, Caesar Rock? You liking Egypt Station? It IS a very good album.

    Yes, but the IM "concert" track is played as score during the Imperial Fleet scene, no?

    Egypt Station is the best McCartney album since Tug Of War.

    Imperial March is also probably the most overrated Star Wars theme of them all.

    I wouldn't say it's overrated. I'd definitely say it's overplayed though.

    Which is why it's not my most played film score track. :D

    I find your lack of taste disturbing.

    Don't get me wrong, I love it. But most people rate it as like the greatest thing ever, and I just don't think so.

    ... meh. Those don't impress me much. Still say he doesn't hold a candle to John Williams.

    Well he's not on the same level as John Williams, but those are at least halfway decent scores! :p

    John Williams soundtracks are a little too attached to marches, for my tastes. Personally, I find that Patrick Doyle's approach is more melodic ... prettier.

    There's lots of JW work that don't really use marches. A.I., Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Empire of the Sun, Minority Report, The Post, Tin Tin, lots of others. Sure HP, Star Wars and Indiana Jones have marches, but that's only one aspect of his work.

    Since today is John Williams' 87th birthday, I'm cranking some of his music on the jukebox.

    I just played the Imperial March. Twice in a row! :vader::tie::storm:[face_monkey]
