I've spent most of the day listening to my favourites.


I've never even seen the film, but I love the soundtrack he did for Sacco and Vanzetti.



The movie is great stuff well worth a watch. 


The following from the same movie, but from  the live concert. It’s mostly known for MGS4 it’s how I got introduced to the film.


And the original

Out of interest, have we always said ‘passes’ in the UK when referring to death? I’ve only started noticing this here very recently, I thought it was an Americanism. 

It has always been around in English but it seems to be more prevalent these days as a 're-import' from the US. It's an excruciatingly infantile euphemism. Just say 'died', FFS.

Right, I need help - I’ve had a potato quality mp3 of music from The Mission on my HDD for over twenty years, probably sourced from Napster or Audiogalaxy. It has no metadata except what I added myself - it’s just “Mission.mp3”.


So I wanted to get a decent quality version of the soundtrack after all this time, but listening on Spotify it seems that the track I have is not actually on the soundtrack...

It starts with the choir, doing the main theme just once, then switches to pan-pipes (big flutes?) echoing the same theme - then switches to strings doing the chanty bit, which the choir gradually comes back in accompaniment to, then at the end it goes back to the pan-pipes from the start, before sweeping strings and horns do the main theme again, and it’s over. It’s 2:53 long.



It all sounds properly movie quality authentic, not a knock-off - I would almost say it was cut for a trailer or something, as it has all the atmosphere and beauty in one short track. Does anyone know what this is, and where I can find it?
