From reader Julien Palliere: I would add something like “Movie Soundtracks” in there, as people like John Williams take from all styles (and water it down to make it background music) in order to make our movies. You can always tell the difference, as most movie soundtracks feature some cheesy i-V-III or I-V-vi progressions with no substance- all mood… That sounds like I’m hating, but no- John Williams is brilliant.

Thanks Julien, we’re a big John Williams fan too!

Forty-five of Williams’ Oscar nominations are forBest Original Score and five are for Best Original Song.
