Song of the Day #1839

Song of the Day: Jaws (“One Barrel Chase”) [YouTube link], composed by John Williams, begins with an echo of that ominous “shark” theme before bursting into the sounds of a seafaring adventure. This is one of the best cues from the Oscar-winning soundtrack to Steven Spielberg‘s suspenseful 1975 film (and it’s also one of my—and my sister’s [Ski!]—favorite movies!). Today is the Maestro’s 89th birthday and what better way to celebrate it than with a selection from one of his most iconic scores. Check out the scene that this music gallantly captures [YouTube link].
