Dragon: The Story Of Bruce Lee
Welcome to the massive group effort Film [Soundtrack] Festival! From November 1-14, we’re covering all sorts of movie soundtracks. There’ll surely be lots for everybody! Huge thanks to Bruce at THE VINYL CONNECTION for this fantastic group post idea! COMMUNITY!
It’s been ages since I saw the film Dragon, but I remember connecting to the instrumental score*, the inspirational and beautiful music suiting the story adeptly.
Randy Edelman’s orchestra and synths score all but one track here, thematically taking us through every emotion with control and understanding. Tacked to the end is Lynn Ray’s cheesy The Hong Kong Cha Cha, which kills the mood. I’d have left that off, for sure.
An excellent score, no question.
* Is “instrumental score” redundant?
