Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/29/14 3:06pm Cubicle Carl:

Ah, that piano is recorded very nicely on the Bernard Herrmann track. You only hear that kind of "room" on older recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: Herrmann did so many great scores, but I actually didn't know he did that "exotic" sci-fi one as well as his conventional dramatic scores.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:12pm Cecile:

yes, it was a surprise to me back in the day too. I saw the day the earth stood still as a kid after I saw Taxi Driver, and I was blown away to know Herrmann did both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:12pm Cecile:

well, I wasn't a kid. I was 17. Just wanted to make that clear
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:16pm Ike:

Why not let people think you were still a kid? It's the Internet -- you can be as young as you want! Heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

3eese, the answer to the question "What is This Spooky Shit?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:23pm Ike:

Although I'm not one to talk -- I reveal too much of myself, and often forget to portray myself on the net as a young billionaire lumberjack with rippling abs and a hypnotic Joe-Frank-like timbre. Errr, which, um, of course is what I am! Yeah!

no, I just didn't want people to think my parents let me watch Taxi Driver when I was like 4 or something. I was 17 and was bawling at the end anyway.

@Girl With The Missing Earring: Nothing quite like a helping of Scott Williams! Welcome!

@Mark: Not only in heavy rotation, but DJs tripping over each other to see who can be the first to play it! :)
  Mon. 12/29/14 3:43pm Mark:

Come on Ken, give him that one! Besides, Oscar Madison could probably win today (especially given the field of probable candidates.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/29/14 3:43pm Cecile:

oh, hey, I went to the Sound of Music sing a long on Saturday. It was strange but fun. Still, that movie's a long damn slab of treacle.

Different kind of rhythm to the typical Hazlewood song, I thought this was a 60s protest song at first. And I guess that tone fits the lyrics well.
