Check out our Goldsmith-inspired Tunefruit Playlist: Goldsmith Playlist
The late, GREAT, Jerry Goldsmith is pretty much awesomesauce in our book (which happens to be shaped like a record). This dude has written the music for so many great movies (Patton, The Omen, Alien, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Poltergeist), yet most importantly, he wrote the music to The Secret of NIMH.
Holy Shittakes, Batman. Look, I’m a child of the 80’s (slash 90’sish), and while The Omen and Patton are impressive credits, NIMH was my jam. It was basically dramatic animation during a time of Disney’s Little Mermaid…think about that. Yes, it blew chunks at the Box Office, but who cares…it’s an amazing movie about Rats in a field with a friggin’ score by Jerry Goldsmith. Bam.
Mister Lush Orchestral Score, we salute you.
So, we think Jerry is the Hotness.
