The Imperial Williams (a 80 minutes tribute to 80 year-old John Williams)

Few days ago, great composer John Williams celebrated his 80th birthday. This is a little tribute to his work, a playlist made with some of his most popular movie themes. It's amazing how many and how universal they are: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jaws, Superman, Schindler's List, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the latest Tintin and many more. These tunes manage to bring you back into a magic and dreamful world: push the play button, close your eyes and you will suddenly find yourself in a soundscape filled with childhood memories: flying bikes, lost arks, tyrannosaurs, lightsabers. 80 minutes for 80 years. Enjoy!

Stay in touch with the new playlists!
