It's John Barry again, this time for the 606th
Soundtrack of the Week: his music for
Four in the Morning.
This is a quiet and restrained score for
what seems to be a melancholy drama. This isn't James Bond
territory, but almost like chamber music. You will hear
a little bit of the Bond sound in "River Ride" from the A Side
and "Lover's Tension" on Side B,
The main theme is haunting and lovely, and is heard
in numerous variations throughout, often from flutes and strings.
There's also some dialogue from the movie, never my favorite
thing, but not a disaster here.
