  • I have looked for this piece since I was about ten years old. It is amusing that I finally found it in all places the second Ice Age movie almost fifty years later.

  • Around 2:30 to 2:50 very similar to Carter Burwell's score for Hudsucker Proxy. Now I need to track it down and see if Burwell quoted it, just flat out used it with credit, or ripped it off.

  • "There were bells on a hill and I never heard them ringing, no, I never heard them at all until there was you"........ I knew I had heard this melody somewhere long ago, but I didn't realize until now that Paul McCartney used this melody for the Beatles' hit song, "Until there was you." How very original, Sir Paul!

  • To the 25 people who showed their dislike for this exquisite piece, I'm only able to assume that you eat dog food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, drink urine from public toilets, don't wear a trousers' belt or know how to tie a shoelace.

  • Every time I hear it I get goose bumps. Particularly after first hearing it as a very young teenager watching the 'Onedin Line' in the 1970s. I'd already had a fascination with sailing, in particular the old square riggers which plied the grain trade from South Australia to Europe between the wars. A number of these fine vessels were ex German flying P-liners, which were the apogee of sail, built to handle what Cape Horn threw at them.

  • Why was Spartacus never made a Saint? People have got it for less; far less.

  • Badfinger, you say it's the best interpretation but you don't tell us who it is.  What orchestra? What conductor?

    Reply
  • Wow, wow, and wow again thanks so much for writing this wonderful music and also thanks to the original Spartacus for trying to set mankind free from slavery and oppression all those years ago. May your memory be enshrined forever.
