  1. Ah, you beat me to the idea. But where’s Danny Elfman’s Batman?

    Overall, a great show.

    • Erik Woods says:

      I wanted to play something from a rather unknown Batman film so I chose Drake/Kral/Manthei’s BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT instead.

  2. sa'ad al-khatib says:

    where’s The Crow ??!!!

    • Erik Woods says:

      I don’t know? Do you know where it is? :P Actually, I did give it serious consideration but I didn’t know which score to replace it with.

  3. Tim Burden says:

    Really good to hear the Roy Budd / LSO Supergirl performance for the first time. The horns were recorded horribly, a perfect example of very bad mic placement.

    • Erik Woods says:

      It does sound horrible. The trumpets are in the wrong channel and everything sounds so pinched. If I didn’t tell you would wouldn’t know that the LSO was performing that particular piece. Terrible but a great arrangement.

  4. Mike Poteet says:

    This is a great idea for a show, and you pulled it together masterfully (no surprise there, but still true!).

    I think Williams’ SUPERMAN march is just about the most perfect piece of film music ever composed. It never, ever fails to give me goose bumps and to stir up my sense of wonder. Perfect choice to lead of this episode! (And I actually thought that “Supergirl” suite wasn’t such a bad recording. I never knew, actually, that Goldsmith was the first choice to score “Superman,” but it makes all kinds of sense. In some parallel universe, film music history looks – or, rather, sounds – very different…!)

    Is it just me, or does that first X-Men cue in hour 2 start off with more than a little “Knight Rider” vibe? What is your opinion of the “X-Men: First Class” score? I guess it’s not the most novel or varied score (it’s no Superman), but I sure do like that main theme in the training montage, the end credits, etc. I’ve enjoyed it on my mp3 player.
