Autogirl, I took a right brain left brain mapping test some years ago that I will try and retrieve from my files. If it isn't copyrighted (and if I find it!) I will post it for the group. I tested out fully right brain with a little peak in the left which the evaluator said represented my 5 years in engineering school. My dad decided I would make a great engineer so thats how that happened. Too bad the test wasn't available when I was in high school. OOOOHHHH Wellll!!!!<BR>One of my favorite movie scores is James Horner's opening and main theme for Airforce One. I have never failed to have people impressed with this piece when I play it for them on our home theater system at movie theater volume.<BR>Denny

I almost entirely forgot about Danny Elfman, the creator of the brilliant Beetlejuice theme, the hauntingly gothic Batman theme, the entire music and lyrics to The Nightmare Before Christmas, and of course, the Simpsons theme. I have heard the Simpsons theme for 12 years, over and over and over, and still cannot get sick of it.

Anyone a fan of Loggins or Journey's work on Caddyshack .....timeless, simply timeless....Beethoven wished he was that good.

My 2 cents. <P>My favorite movie soundtrack (which has never been released on tape or CD) is "Cannery Row".<P>And there will always be a special place in my heart for Elmer Bernstein's score for "The Magnificent Seven"<P>JackM

DUH! How could we forget about Danny Elfman's Edward Scissorhands? Some nice boys' choir work in there, as well.<P>Speaking of the Simpson's theme, has anybody seen 'BLAST'? It's PBS thing. A very theatrical combination of band instruments and dance. Sort of Riverdance meets the Music Man meets the circus. There's one West Side Medley where they throw in some Simpson music here and there. I haven't seen it come around lately, but watch for it when your stations start their pledge drives.<P>audiogirl

Have you guys EVEN heard Loggins or Journey???? I think if you had, you may not be sooooo quick to condemn.....history will rank Kenny Loggins, Steve Perry, and Ludwig in a triumverate.....<P>"Open Arms", "Separate Ways"....right up there with No. 9....c'mon, admit it...you know you want to.

Jason, Pls imagine Margie Simpson's voice when you read this, just so you don't think I'm trying to fry you to a crisp . I'm not.<P>Believe me Jason, as an avid follower of the muse, I'm familiar with Kenny Loggins, Yo Momma don't dance, and yo Daddy Don't Rock n Roll, and Forever Yours Faithfully, Journey. <P>And I refuse to tussel with you over comparisons that could only turn into a World Cup Soccer Tournament, or even worse, a 90 car pile up.<P>However when an internet forum is based around a specific musician, composer, or group , maybe even more so with the summa cum logica Ludwig Van Beethoven, more often than not, the underlying protocol is that irrefutable truth :<P>that artist is about as close to God as you can get.(see Shos' religion) And if you say anything otherwise, it is best to don a thick hided pachyderm, and steel and brace yourself for incoming, or be prepared to back your statements up with credible, solid arguements. K? Image<P>
