One of those pieces of music...

We all know a piece of music that we hear from time to time, that we think is amazing. And, suitably enough, we don't know what the piece of music is called. So we can't buy / download it. For me, one track in particular is the music that plays during the jailbreak at the start of The Goonies. On sunday The Goonies was screened on channel five, so I made a note of the composer and set about looking for a soundtrack.

Success! I found the soundtrack. However, it was only available on import from Japan. And when I looked at the track listing it turned out that it was just a collection of pop songs that appear in the film. Oh no! There was one track on the CD though, the last track - "Theme from the Goonies." This was rather vague, but surely this was the theme I wanted?

No.

More searching told me that the name of the track I desired was "Fratelli Chase" which is available on a number of Dave Grusin (the composer) compilation CD's. The question is, do I buy a compilation from america at considerable expense for this track alone?

Damn those people who are in charge of CD soundtracks.

Anyway, thought I'd mention it. If anyone else knows a great piece of music that they don't know what it's called, tell us and we might be able to find it for you and avoid the rigmarole I went through.

Speaking of which, who knows what that bit from the nutcracker suite by Tchaikovsky is called, the one they always play round christmas time? I think it was in the trailer for The Grinch with Jim Carrey, amongst others.
