John Williams’ score for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is not only about exterior action, but also internal emotion. He uses a harp throughout the soundtrack to convey a sense of childlike wonder and pure love. The gentle patience of “I’m Keeping Him” perfectly captures a tone of radiant trepidation, while “Toys” is delicate and heartfelt in ways we barely notice when it’s playing behind a scene. The rippling piano of the end credits instantly conjures the movie’s climactic bicycle ride, leaving us with a lasting sensation of childhood discovery.
An Amazing Soundtrack From John Williams!
John Williams has something about him. Many times, his music makes the film, takes you on its own journey without the film itself. The soundtrack to ET does just that. You can follow the journey of ET and his friends without watching it, by just listening. From the opening to the end credit music, the music is as much a part of the film as ET himself, or any of the other characters. This very music made an absolutely AMAZING film 10x better, and was well worth the price I paid. And this 20th anniversary edition sounds better than ever, so if you do purchase it, you won't be disappointed. John Williams is one of the best movie composers of the last 50 years. This is certainly a gem in any music library.
itunes says this is "nothing special" HA!
ET is a classic, however watching the film without john william's score is like eating a bannana with the peel still on. It's the magical score by Williams that helps this movie blossum, and an unmistakable entry to his resume. Kudos to John, shame on itunes for their odd review and making Saying Goodbye an Album Only. Shoudn't you get the album at a reduced price if you buy the movie off itunes?
Beautiful! Simply beautiful!
E.T. is one of my favorite Spielberg films and the soundtrack is one of the reasons why. I particularly like the Flying Theme.
