Happy Birthday John Williams

Everyone at POParitaville would like to wish a heartfelt happy birthday to composer John Williams.  John has composed some of the most memorable film scores ever made.  He has been able to take the feeling of a movie and put it in to a theme that quickly takes us back to moments in our life.

Of course we know that the main themes for 'Star Wars', 'Raiders of the Lost Ark',  and 'JAWS' will always be favorites.  But what about some others that are not always mentioned?  Maybe some you forgot about, or maybe some you never considered.

Here are some other great pieces:




















If you ever get a chance, go and see John's summer series at the Hollywood Bowl.  It is such a fantastic night of music, movies, and you can bring wine!  So you know we'll be there.

Again, happy birthday John Williams.  Thank you for so many memories, and allowing me to relive great moments of my life with just a piece of music.

What say you?  What are some of your favorite John Williams scores?
