Song of the Day #1841

Song of the Day: Gremlins 2 (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link] was composed by Jerry Goldsmith, who was born on this date in 1929. Having composed the score to the original “Gremlins” (1984), he returned in 1990 to compose the score to its sequel, “Gremlins 2: The New Batch.” Opening with a bow to that classic “Merrie Melodies” cartoon theme [YouTube link], this soundtrack suite captures a “new batch” of cues, some macabre, some comedic, all perfectly integrated.
