John Barry, the composer of so many beautiful film sound tracks has passed away. He was most famous for writing the lush and gorgeous sound tracks to
such James Bond films as Moonraker, but also wrote the music for Out of Africa and other films. His was a very distinctive and beautiful
voice in cinematic music and will be sorely missed.
It's sad to think that no more will the name of John Barry grace the credits of a motion picture.
(Apologies. I wanted to embed the vidclip of the opening titles of Moonraker but embedding has been disabled for this clip. The YouTube link is at the
bottom of the embed. It's getting harder and harder to stay ahead of the reptilians these days.)
