If your hear a few notes of "Jaws" you know what comes next.

Yep, kind of like those 5 notes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, another Williams wrote.

The cool thing with Jurassic Park is it manages to capture the awe and might of dinosaurs, but also a bit of an amusement park sound. The main theme is a good example, starts out pretty simple and mysterious, than becomes a full fanfare, something one could imagine hearing walking down 'Mainstreet' in Disneyworld or such. Still alive and kicking here Brenda, good to hear you are as well.

Actually a pretty close race here, other than Harry Potter...with Indy currently in the lead. In honor of that, one of my favorite Indiana Jones music pieces, Slave Children's Crusade from Temple of Doom. (As it appears in the film)

Agreed, great score, and story which is now considered a modern classic.

Flash back to simpler times.

Agreed, something about those 1980 films that is nostalgic, I think that's part of why the Netflix series Stranger Things did well, that 80's setting and vibe to it. E.T. of course has become a modern classic, and a great score by Williams, who can forget the bike ride with the moon in the background?

Brian said a week ago
Never know what critters might be lurking in those large bodies of water. The one that amazed me was the discovery giant squids actually exist.

"Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies..." (though that wasn't part of the soundtrack, just a Quint scene that makes me laugh).
