“Waters of Irrawaddy “
This came out when I was a junior in High School. This music is ingrained in my psyche. I’ve slept to this song at least once every year since 1996. I’ve slept to it as recently as a week ago. This song served as the inspiration for this week’s music.
Enjoy, and try not to let it lull you to sleep.

“Field of Dreams”
This work is the theme for Field of Dreams, which is my favorite sports movie of all time. The Natural is second.
If you haven’t seen either of these movies, I ask that you pick up an iron glove and slap your face with it – It’s time for a duel. Someone has to go.
A mighty hip hip hooray goes out to James Horner for writing this one.

“The Final Game”
The Natural is probably my number two all time favorite movie about baseball, but was the first one I watched. I was six years old when this movie came out, and my brother was five. I remember watching this movie with a sense of amazement about the game, the bat, and the players in the sport. It cemented baseball as a past time for me, and I have Randy Newman to partially thank for that.

Of all the music from LOTR, this is probably my favorite. It’s nice, calm and not nearly as dark as the rest of the movie. The shire was like heaven for middle Earth. No darkness whatsoever. just happy, drunken little people. It’s ok to call them little people isn’t it – they ‘re fiction anyway.

“The Batman Theme”
This was a huge deal when it hit theaters. It was the biggest movie to hit theaters for its time. The release of this movie paved the way for all the other comics to release modern classics. (The batman movies don’t really count – well maybe they do, but I’m discounting them because they were the 80s for the most part)
