John Williams is to movie scores as Jesus Christ is to the whole turning-water-into-wine thing…I’m not quite sure if that is technically a proper analogy but I think you get my meaning (meaning for those who do not “get it”: Williams can turn a good movie into a great one simply through one of his instrumental pieces).
But sometimes I wonder what one of his iconic movie scores would sound like if someone added lyrics to them. Would they improve, degrade or just stay the same?
And, after listening to YouTube star Brett Domino‘s take on Williams’ Jurassic Park piece, well I’m going to have to with….well, I don’t want to ruin it for you.
Take a listen after the break and come to your own conclusion.
