Musical Monday

This week's piece is the theme tune to Jurassic Park by the very talented John Williams. A pretty powerful piece of music I think and quite moving too. It lead us to start exploring other John Williams' tunes on You Tube and then further afield for other powerful film themes like Pearl Harbor and Gone with the Wind (watching the "I shall never be hungry again!" and "Frankly my dear ..." sections just for good measure). This, strangely, lead us to the good old musicals like Oklahoma! Katie had a laugh at the strange horse riding style (it gets worse as the tune progresses) in "Oh what a beautiful morning!". So, quite a few tunes for our Musical Monday this week. Happy listening.
