Rest in Peace, John Barry

Yesterday the world has lost a great composer. John Barry has put out some of my most favorite music ever. There's something special about his melodies that touches me like no other music can; I even played him at my wedding. I wonder if anyone else noticed what I was playing? I was sad to read this morning that he passed away.

Here are a few of the songs that I love the most:

Out of Africa

Dances With Wolves

Somewhere in Time

A View to Kill

What are the words in that song? "Dont it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got until it's gone." At least John lived in a time where his art work could be distributed and witnessed by many. During his day, Bach wasn't known as a composer, only for his great knowledge of harpsichords and pipe organs, and ability to play them. And of course with Mozart's antics, his talent wouldn't be truly appreciated for years. I believe John Barry learned to make himself happy with his art, and let the chips fall where they may. Just my opinion. TC Don
