13th warrior is a masterpiece! I love the whole soundtrack for that movie.
I would ride "Soarin'" at Epcot over and over again just to hear Goldsmith's score.
Is it wrong to say all of them?!
Total Recall still blows me away. Star Trek TMP gives me goosebumps. The Great Train Robbery is a straight up masterpiece. Too many to choose.
Planet of the Apes.
Planet of the Apes
The River Wild
So many great soundtracks, Jerry is my absolute favorite! The first time I heard his music was in Planet of the Apes, I couldn't believe that this Hollywood movie has a soundtrack of this high almost avantgarde quality - I was immediately intrigued.
First Blood scene in the woods.
Spirits of the Classical Masters possessed him.
Star Trek the Motion Picture, Poltergeist, Legend, Total Recall.
Can't decide between The Edge and Basic Instinct. Incredible Scores, intelligent, subliminal, made with the right amount of finesse. Something I miss today, or well to be honest, since around 20 years.
COMA has some great stuff once you skip the disco sections.
Yeah, the songs on scores like Coma and the Omen can be pretty damn annoying.
I do think it was sweet that Jerry's wife sang the "Piper" song from the Omen (pretty sure that's her).
Might be buried in this thread, but he also did a lot of CBS radio plays. Tone poems, westerns etc
If anyone hear wants to hear Jerry's early suspense and thriller music, pick up Jerry Goldsmith The Early Years. It contains killer music from classic shows like Perry Mason.
Goldsmith was a huge fan of and openly influenced by Bernard Herrmann in his earliest years composing for film; however it's fascinating to me how he took his influences and forged his own musical voice. His music for the Twilight Zone Movie was similarly eclectic and at tunes strikingly brilliant in my opinion.
So I'm a fan-dude, I don't care lol!
You've all seen the Verta masterclass on him, right? Very much worth a look.
But yes, please pinging down names for obscure Goldsmith stuff we may not have heard of.
Shame that you can find all the fucking Miley Cyrus you want on Spotify etc but to get the good Goldsmith stuff, you have to dive into the arse of Youtube.
yup. there's even a podcast dedicated to his catalog.
Boys from Brazil was one of my very first albums and it's truly the perfect mix of the classics (waltz), intense, harrowing suspense, biting action. Highly recommended.
In fact, you could buy practically anything from the 60s and 70s (and an armload after) of Jerry's music and not go wrong. He was that great...he might have been the greatest (ducks the Williams sycophants' blows...hey I like John too!).
Sum of all fears is also a great score
That’s John Williams, not Jerry Goldsmith.
Separate names with a comma.
