The song for today is one of the finest moments in film music. Everybody’s going to see the new Star Wars movie and of course it has a score written by John Williams, probably the best movie score composer of all times. Can you name over 10 movies with music by John Williams? 20? 30? Check out this list.
I love many of his songs and compositions, but this one is special – perhaps because when I first heard it I was 9 years old and saw E.T. and the kids flying with their bikes. That magical moment is something I’ll never forget. And this piece of music will always represent all the good things in the world, things that are possible if we want them to be.
