Very distinctive

I still remember the shared glow of pride (and surprise!) I felt with my fellow St Andrews students as we watched the athletes running on our West Sands to the Vangelis soundtrack, in Chariots of Fire at The Picture House on North Street.

RIP

Ooh, don’t, you’ll get me listing makes and models and that won’t improve anyone’s day.

All of these are full of great music and have given me huge listening pleasure for decades.

Another sad loss. He left so much distinctive music as others have already listed; I would add 1492 - Conquest of Paradise to these. My first encounter with his music was when Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman played Heaven & Hell on his Saturday afternoon radio show - mind blowing. The music for Chariots of Fire & Blade Runner is iconic, adding to the impact of the films - imagine either film without this music.

Fun fact: two tracks from Opera Sauvage were used in Chariots of Fire. Firstly, L’Enfant was played whilst the famous opening beach-running scene was filmed, and Hymne was used on the soundtrack but not included on the album.
