Exclusive Cool Video: Soundtrack Tribute to John Williams score for Jaws!
It's impossible to deny the power of a John Williams score, especially when it's linked to outer space or the deep ocean. In 1975, Steven Spielberg adapted Peter Benchley's page-turner, JAWS, which starred Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss, instilling fear in the minds of beachgoers to this very day. A story about a man-eating great white shark is enough to freak anyone out, but one of the greatest perpetrators of that sense of fear and foreboding belongs to John Williams' tremendous score, which has become a kind of cultural theme song that continues to pop up everywhere. Williams has gone on to do some outstanding scores since JAWS first came out, but it's one that will remain as one of his all-time best.
To celebrate this fine piece of work, our very own Kevin Blanchard (aka Droz) has created a Soundtrack Tribute to the film, which takes you right back to the beaches of Amity and out to the wide, spooky ocean on Quint's rickety boat. Sit back, enjoy, and smile, you son of a bitch...
John Williams recently scored THE BOOK THIEF and is set to return to a galaxy far, far away with STAR WARS: EPISODE VII.
