RIP Joh Barry

Here's a link to an article I wrote about John Barry, one of my favorite composers, who passed away yesterday.

His music for the Bond films shaped, if not defined, what I think of as film music. But he also wrote some of the most wonderfully romantic themes ever, including Somewhere in Time.

But I also really love The Beyondness of Things, an album he did of original music, not specifically for any film at all. I think I'll go listen to that right now...

The midnight cowboy theme with Toots on harmonica was amazing.
