Song of the Day


John Williams - Jaws Theme

---------------Just when you thought summer was getting a little boring, ocean geeks and thrill nerds alike can rejoice the resurrection of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. To get my feet wet, I need legendary composer John Williams to frighten me into the depths of paranoia and fear. The original theme to the 1975 thriller Jaws is one of the most recognizable themes in music history, beginning with a dreadful and foreboding chromatic step from E to F. At a first listen, director Steven Speilberg criticized the theme as not being scary enough. But Williams credits this simple yet dangerous score as the jumpstart of his career, and moviegoers credit the score with never stepping into open water ever again. Get the theme to Jaws from the original movie soundtrack.
