Song of the Day #2093

Song of the Day: The Sand Pebbles (“Soundtrack Suite”) was composed by Jerry Goldsmith, for this epic Robert Wise-directed 1966 war film, starring Steve McQueen. The Oscar-nominated score is an emotive backdrop to the film’s love, violence, and heartbreak. Goldsmith won only one Oscar (for “The Omen“), despite 18 lifetime nominations. This is one of his best. Today, Turner Classic Movies begins its “31 Days of Oscar“, and many films scored by Goldsmith will be featured over the next month.
