Is Superman, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars music the same?
The original Superman, Indiana Jones series, and the original three Star Wars movies. Listen to all of them and tell me if you think the music is literally the same song.
Well they were all written by the same composer--John Williams. Most composers' works have some similarities, but still, those three you mentioned are very different pieces. Perhaps it just isn't really your style of music. I could see someone for instance who didn't like rap listening to 3 Jay-Z songs and not being able to tell they were different.
As junkseller said- certain composers have distinct styles. John Williams, the composer of the movie themes you have mentioned has an affinity for a note pattern called a triplet. he also has an affinity for a rather martial (aka military) style to his music.Therefore the pattern of the music is similar, but all are individual works that stand on their own.
They are pretty much the same to my tiny unmusical brain. I sometimes will hum or whistle the tune to Superman, or Indiana Jones and it will morph into one or all of those movie themes and then I think, "what the hell?" The first time this happened is when I decided to investigate and found the composer to all of them to be the same man. It's still awesome music though. In my humble little opinion, his best work is the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi a close second.
Most composers' performs have some resemblances, but still, those three you described are very different items. Perhaps it just isn't really your design of songs. I could see someone for example who did not like rap hearing to 3 Jay-Z songs and not being able to tell they were different.
What a good blog you have here. Please update it more often. This topics is my interest. Thank you. . .
At last, I am not alone! I can never tell them apart. I guess if I spent time in a room listening to them separately I could tell the difference. Great music, but John Williams had a great gig there.
I was just watching Raiders of the Lost Arc last weekend, and I kept thinking about how Marion's theme sounded so much like Princess Leia's theme, which has been played a lot with all of the tributes lately. I love Williams' brassy scores. They're light but epic.
Nope. I can distinctly tell the difference in all of them. John Williams is a legend composer. Superman theme is my favorite of his works. I love Jurassic Park as well. You should check out my hub about top five composers in film. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer.
