Yay John Willams! We watched the inauguration at school and when they announced that he wrote the song they played right before it, I pretty much shrieked!

Happy Birthday John Williams! I’m listening to his “litte things” song from “Wanted”. I love it!

Sorry for my post before. Its not John Williams, its Danny Elfman. :P Epic Fail. its late and my brain isn’t in the right place, I love John William’s work though. I don’t understand how he doesn’t run out of ideas for music. I don’t play any music but I can’t imagine composing so many different songs. I think people who are musically inclined think differently than those who are not.

You can recognise the Harry Potter theme anywhere you hear it in just a few notes. It is a great piece of work. I’m a fan and always look to see who composed the music of anything I watch. Happy Birthday.
