Absolutely Just for Fun–a Great Piece of Movie Music

For no reason I know of, I started whistling this music a few minutes ago and Patty started dancing to it. Well, why keep it to ourselves? It ain’t a hymn or anything–just a fine and dandy piece of movie music by Basil Poledouris–the theme for Quigley Down Under (1990), Tom Selleck starring as a heroic Texan cowboy putting things to rights in Australia. And the late Alan Rickman is just wonderful as the villain.

Ah! I do feel better now!

  1. This is one of the most delightful pieces of music I have heard in years!

    Thank you, Lee. And by the way, Tom Selleck is my favorite actor.

  2. I’ve seen that movie before, but hadn’t specifically remembered the music. I really like that. It’s a very straightforward piece, the only subtleties are in the arrangement, which is fine indeed. If this fallen world continues in the state it’s currently in, there will be very few people capable of arranging, or even performing such music in another 50 years.
