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, however.

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.
