The Skip 5 Show #9: John Williams – The Rooftops Of The Hanamachi

Found on the 2005 soundtrack for the film Memoirs Of A Geisha, this is definitely not the grand, sweeping music we generally associate with Mr. Williams’ work. Here it’s tight, creepy, almost horror film music, but filtered through Japanese instruments and elements. This was one helluva ride through emotion, brilliantly executed.

John Williams – Memoirs Of A Geisha OMPS

A Taranna October 3-for-$10 find…

I love this film, it’s one I’ll rewatch (and I rarely rewatch things). The music always haunts the film, adding the perfect accompaniment to the story. It is understatement to say that finding this soundtrack in the 3-for-$10 bin at BMV was a massive highlight. Add cello solos by Yo-Yo Ma and violin solos by Itzhak Perlman to Williams’ stellar score and you know it’s a gem.

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!

 Check out THIS PAGE for all the entries.


NB: I owned this CD ages ago, bought it on import (at import prices!) at Sam The Record Man on Yonge in Toronto. It’s not one I would ever have sold off, but the disc still went missing at some point. So this one is my replacement copy. I won’t ever be without it.


Before starting high school, my parents took a friend and I to Ottawa. We stayed at Chateau Laurier, took in a Karsh exhibit, and saw this film. Great times.

We loved the first two Indy movies, so this was an instant classic. For me the music held special significance. I can still hum the whole damn CD today. As with Williams’ works, the score was so perfectly suited to the film. And that main theme! Damn.

Music for a lifetime.
