Music to write by #53

I’ve been doing this over a year and I can’t believe I haven’t featured music from one of my favorite movies of all time, The Rock. It was one of the first instrumental soundtrack I ever bought. Hans Zimmer and Nick Glennie-Smith knocked it out of the park with Hummel Gets The Rockets.

The score for the Miami Vice TV show in the 80s was praised at the time but for the most part the compositions of Jan Hammer haven’t aged well. Still, I enjoyed this softer piece called Theresa.

Today you get another Hans Zimmer double whammy! The Rain Man theme sounds like it could have been for an action movie and yet it works here wonderfully. Hans was definitely in his electric guitar phase.
