Tunefruit Knows The Hotness: Jerry Goldsmith


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.

Tunefruit Daily Freshpick: The Final Battle

this track is really great

Check it out: The Final Battle

Hey. You. Yeah, YOU. Lookin’ for a John Williams type of track? Yeah? Cool…come here. Around the corner. Where no one will bother us. Man, this track has GOT it all…it offers sweeping strings, pulsing percussion, serious highs, and thoughtful lows…I can kind of imagine this track being used to sell the closing scenes of an epic and hard-won battle. Heck, on the end, you even have a bit of filler for when the dude finally gets the girl, the lights go up, and the credits roll. Enjoy. We know once you get taste, you’ll be back.

Tunefruit Daily Freshpicks: Trouble At The Bazaar

Check it out: Trouble At The Bazaar

Taking the best of the Bond movies, dashing a little bit of strummed Saz and middle eastern strings, shaking them up, and then dumping them into a busy street scene…this is what you get. This royalty free music track is a perfect replacement for someone needing an Afro Celt Soundsystem vibe. Middle Eastern at it’s core, it still possesses that Hollywood Blockbuster music attitude. Big and brash! Don’t think desert, think city streets!
