Apollo 13 Movie Suite

Apollo 13 Suite
Music by James Horner

As I continue to share in the "space-theme" movie suites, we come to a work that was sorta lost-in-the-shuffle. When listening to this score, it tells the tale of bombastic adventure and unrequited longing for something that has long passed us by. The tale is real. The story is based on the truth. And the music is just about right, as it serves us with the majesty of a doomed space flight that barely makes it back to mother earth. I'm a fan of James Horner and if you like some of his other "Space Movie" motion picture scores, then I'm pretty certain that you'll enjoy this, too. At least I hope so. -MJ
