Song of the Day #1840

Song of the Day: Gremlins 1 (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by the late Jerry Goldsmith, features highlights from this 1984 comedy-horror hybrid. It embodies elements of both genres. Today begins a four-day celebration of the wonderful Goldsmith and his artistry. He has composed some of my all-time favorite scores, from “Alien,” “The Omen,” and “Planet of the Apes” to “Chinatown” and “L.A. Confidential.” Tomorrow marks the 92nd anniversary of Goldsmith’s birth.
