Home Alone [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

( 6 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
The soundtrack to director Chris Columbus' 1990 monster hit Home Alone features the composing work of the legendary John Williams and continues the Christmas theme of the film with numerous yuletide carols. Williams' main title theme, known as "Somewhere in My Memory," is a typically sweeping affair that incorporates the childlike qualities of the film while suggesting Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy." Elsewhere, a children's choir performs "O Holy Night," and the Drifters turn in a heartwarming version of "White Christmas."

    THE BEST WILLIAMS SCORE

    The minor keys weaved between brilliant J. Williams and Christmas themes is fantastic. He has done some great scores, but no scores he has done could ever surpass Home Alone or Hook!

    Instant Classic

    This CD should be written off as a classic. This is also a must have if you enjoy the Movie as much as the music played in the Movie. I have children who enjoy this music as well as the Movie. If you are looking to just spend an evening with by yourself or your children roasting chestnuts and doing some great Holiday Activities, I would absolutely throw on this CD while doing so. It will compliment a great winter evening at home.
