May the Fourth Be With You
Fri, 04 May 2018

For all the Star Wars fans of the world, May 4th is an unofficial holiday. To honor Star Wars composer John Williams, Iíve put together a playlist with some of my top picks from his film scores.

Most peopleís minds automatically go to John Williams when asked to name a film-music composer. Williamsí output of cinematic scores is outstanding with major blockbuster hits including Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, and Saving Private Ryan.

What is your favorite film that uses a John Williams score? If itís not on my playlist, let me know in the comments below and Iíll add it to our list.

May the fourth be with you!
