I'm just wondering why you chose Starman to represent Carpenter. Escape from New York, Halloween or Assault On Precinct 13 are much more iconic IMHO.

They claim FORBIDDEN PLANET was the first one... maybe that should be there. Wendy Carlos who did TRON also did CLOCKWORK ORANGE!

If I had not been told differently, I would have thought Carpenter's submission was from Vangelis. Then again, it wasn't as rich as a Vangelis piece would be. I too would have liked to hear a selection from "Escape from New York," but I'm already privy to the fact that you do mix it up (you really took me back with "Green Card" - Gerard Depardieu? WHAT?!.... OK!). For me, that does make your show more interesting. Anyway, my favorite three cues are from Zimmer, Williams, and Horner in that order. It seems that I may be genetically predisposed to liking Zimmer like I'm genetically predisposed to liking chicken....
