I had the Jungle Book record in the late 60's, used to put it on my portable record player before going to sleep and listen to it under the duvet - very exciting and scary, all the jungle sounds, Kaa, Shere Khan, et al.

I like John Carpenter's scores for his own films, particularly The Fog

Yes I know what you mean. One of the most entertaining films is Big Trouble in Little China.

Very sad to hear the news this week of the death of Jóhann Jóhannsson at the young age of 48.

Anyone who has seen Arrival or Sicario will know that his music not just inhabits films, but drives them to be what they are. I cannot imagine either of those two fantastic films being anywhere near their splendour were it not for Jóhannsson's scores.

Some memorable highlights -

Heptapod B - (Arrival Soundtrack) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0ahB25FJ6o

Sicario - 'The Beast' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTedsOULqX0

One of his best non-film tracks - 'Sun's gone dim' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iv4CuIIspdE

RIP Jóhann Jóhannsson..
