I have a lot of film music on my iPod and for some reason or another I have to be in a certain frame of mind to listen to music by Jerry Goldsmith or John Williams but when something by John Barry pops up I almost always keep it going. He was an inventive composer who could write hooks like nobody's business. He will indeed be missed.
