Welcome to the 1st Music Monday of Sci-Fi Month (if you want to know more about this go here)!  This month all of the music I'm going to be sharing will be sci-fi related - this week I'm sharing my three favorite pieces of music from Jurassic Park (1993)!  Like many, I grew up with this movie (and it's sequels), but the first film will always hold a special place in my heart.  I fully expect a good deal of that is due to John Williams' outstanding score - my favorite pieces of music are the "Theme from Jurassic Park", "Journey to the Island", and "The Raptor Attack".  The video I've selected for the theme is actually John Williams conducting a full orchestra in a live performance - and I have to admit it makes me so nostalgic and emotional.  For the second track, I'm actually sharing the clip from the movie, and it's hands down my favorite part of the score - the brass is irresistible!  Finally, I'm for the raptor scene, I'm only sharing the audio which is totally Jaws for dinosaurs, but if you'd like to see the scene you can watch that here.  For your listening pleasure, the music of Jurassic Park:

  3. I love this soundtrack so much!! Especially Jurassic Park right at that first violin entrance; it's just so magical. Basically anything John Williams composes, I'll listen to :) Jurassic Park is one of those movies that I'll just put on in the background to listen to and not even to watch.

  4. OMG I love the Jurassic Park soundtrack so much. John Williams is generally adept at giving me goosebumps, but this one works every time.

  5. I don't think John Williams has written a bad score in his life. This one is certainly iconic, though it's not necessarily my favorite. I'm partial to the soundtrack from Empire Strikes Back myself.

    It won't let me comment with my WP site, where I'm also playing along with SciFi Month.
