    Anyone here a fan of Lalo Schifrin?
    Personally, I loved the Dirty Harry soundtrack, especially Scorpio's View (which had been used in the living with a caravan episode of Top Gear) and I'm currently listening to Switching Gears from the Bullitt soundtrack.
    Many regard him very highly as a composer and it's easy to see why. Interested to hear other people's opinions on him here.

    I'm a big fan - got a copy of his Kelly's Heroes soundtrack recently, one of my favourites of his work.

    Listening to the new Gary Numan album Savage. Absolutely amazing work from an artist at the top of his form. Seeing him in concert tonight, too.

    Billie Holiday, Gloomy Sunday Take care if you listen. This song has been linked to
    at least One Hundred suicides, and is also know as The Hungarian Suicide Song.

    Watched Drive (for the third time overall) yesterday and I had to listen to its soundtrack.
    Love the 80s/2011 sound it has to it.

    That soundtrack is great, Nightcall was the first song I listened to when I got to LA last month. Speaking of score's I've been listening to Benjamin Wallfisch's and Hans Zimmer's Blade Runner 2049 score recently. It's pretty good, could've probably been better I think but both composers replaced the original composer Johann Johannsson relativity late in the process. Which I find interesting because Wallfisch's and Zimmer's score mostly sounds like a Johannsson score anyway. Overall the music invokes Vangelis mixed with Zimmer's grating electronics, simplistic themes and Johannsson's ambient music.

    Nice! If you ever find yourself in November 2019 in LA, you know which song to listen to.

    Not song but album, live album to be precise. I always really loved the odd piece by Hans Zimmer, chevalier de sangreal, some of the dark trilogy, Gladiator etc but I've generally thought a lot of his soundtracks are very very similar, well after really enjoying his work on blue planet and br2049 and Dunkirk I've been on a bit of a Zimmer renaissance lately. I came accross his recent album taken from a live show in Prague.

    It's absolutely awesome, it takes you from sublime strings with gentle keys overlaid to bang crash boom and bass. From symphonic bliss to blistering rock opera. There are medleys from Gladiator, inception, the dark knight trilogy and interstellar mixed in with many other pieces of his film work. The track aurora is introduced by Zimmer who tells a story of his horror at Heath Ledger dying and then hearing about the mass shooting that took place in aurora during the screening of the dark knight. This album takes me from personal introspection to all out euphoric joy fully immersed in the gigantic wall of sound. There are many featured guests including Johnny May who all provide steller performances, and a drummer who is just inexhaustible.
    If you like your soundtrack music this is well worth a listen.

    This ended up in my YouTube recommendations somehow and the nostalgia is real... A song that I completely forgot about but brings back a lot of memories.

    Listening to Liam Gallagher's As You Were. Come Back To Me is classic.

    I have been given a rat pack CD (Sinatra ,Martin,Davis jnr)have in in the X3; the music allough not my first choice is superb . You close your eyes (obviously while not driving) and you are there ,back in those halcyon days of New York , you are there at your table ,a solo trumpeter illuminated by a single spot , immaculately dressed in black tie with wing collar ,plays his trumpet with the mute cone fitted ,his hair slicked back with bay rum .There is a heady fog in the air as Virginian tobacco mixes with Turkish tobacco, moustached Italian waiters buzz round like busy bees ,brining champagne ,and the rat packs favourite tipple to thirsty New Yorkers .Ol blue eyes him self croons away ,his trade mark trilby not far from on .Martin with his bow tie undone Casino Royale style ,and the ever happy looking Davis profusely sweating from his brow hits those notes ,The traffic lights go to green an angry toot from the car behind New York is gone hallo Dartford .

    Listening to Phil Collin's Tomorrow Never Knows and this may sound crazy (as he claims that it was a song they played between sessions) but I like it a tiny bit better than the Beatles version.
    Hope I haven't opened (another) can of worms.

    Against All Odds and Sussudio are other favourites of mine.

    One of my favourite bands from the 80's Roxy Music retuned to 528Hz, I must admit it sounds better.
