The name’s Barry, John Barry

RIP John Barry, composer of the soundtracks of 11 James Bond films and many others including Midnight Cowboy. He won Oscars for Born Free (for best song and best score), The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves.

Ipcress was my personal fave… watched it on tv again one Sunday afternoon not too long ago and thought at the time just how good the music was.

From Russia With Love
The Lion In Winter
Born Free
Out of Africa
Dances With Wolves
Beat Girl
The Ipcress File
Midnight Cowboy
The Persuaders!

For Your Ears Only – documentary on BBC Archive

David Arnold (Composer for the last five Bond films and a huge fan of Barry) has started a campaign on twitter to get ‘We Have All the Time in the World’ to number one.

His tribute on the BBC’s website

John Barry: a life in clips – some interesting stuff here, esp on him recyling the Star Crash score for Out Of Africa
