It was so wonderful to play the samples- it was like meeting an old friend. The music is so warm and nostalgic- it made me teary eyed. Thank You Intrada! This is so Ordered with other goodies!

Just over an hour's worth of music?

There are no alternate versions of the big band music?

Which cue is the Dancing In The Dark theme? On You Tube it's over 2 minutes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbd4erVmik

Is there any missing music?

I am so grateful - I am buying 2 copies, just asking - as I am greedy, and would like more music, but I will just have to wait for the anticipated release of Cocoon: The Return!

Thank You Intrada - This is the best release of 2013!

The Original Cocoon Album has a running time of 44 minutes and 23 seconds.
True?
No – it is FALSE.
Because the Michael Sembello song “Gravity” is included – this reduces the Cocoon “score” time.
The “Gravity” song is 4 minutes and 4 seconds in length.
This reduces the original album time to 40 minutes and 19 seconds.
This brand new release which I am so grateful for, has a running time of 62 minutes and 25 seconds.
When you minus the 4 minutes from the “Gravity” track – the Intrada CD is only 58 minutes and 25 seconds.
The 2 bonus source cues at the end, only total up 2 minutes and 18 seconds.
The track that I believe to be Dancing In the Dark might be track #5.

It’s a safe bet to say that my instincts are correct in regards to “Seduction” being the Dancing In The Dark cue, but having said that, what is the little bit inserted at the end…. Titled “Let’s Go” is that the same cue – or a different cue combined with the same track?

Definite order though, along with Red October. What a great week! smile

I don't think "Dancing in the Dark" is included on the disc. I think "Seduction" is the music for the scenes where Art, Ben and Joe are seducing their wives/girlfriend and "Let's Go" is the music for the scene where Art, Ben and Joe go to the swimming pool again. In this scene Joe says to Ben "Let's Go". And the next track ("Unveiling") takes place after the dance and is for the scene where Jack finds out that Kitty is an alien.

Yep, my memory served me well.
There's about 15 minutes of unreleased score proper - without the big band stuff - and it's classic Horner.
I'm also jazzed about the sound upgrade. The original CD sounded fine to me, so it will be exciting to hear and compare the improvements in that department.

Ordered this (of course!) along with a bunch of stuff (including Red October).

This will get a lot of play time! The sonics sound amazing -- I am really looking forward to this. Feels like the good old days of the 80ies! Seriously, unreleased music from scores as these, is my rejuvenation pool :-)

Absolutely one of the best 80´s scores, still holding up magnificently. One of my favorites and definitely ordered!

Wow. You really are a troll.

al·bum
'alb?m/
noun
noun: album; plural noun: albums

2.
a collection of recordings, on CD, record, or cassette, that are issued as a single item.



How the flying FUCK would 'Gravity' not be considered part of the playing time of the album?

I can't imagine anyone whom is at all interested in this title not knowing about the big band cues. I really don't see anything disingenuous there.

That, and I would consider them as an integral part of the score (even more evident in Cocoon: The Return). Any 'caveat' would be.. weird.

I get that they have to sell their product by spotlighting the highlights, but six of the nine samples offered are tracks from the album. It'd be nice to get more clips of what hasn't been released before, which I'd imagine for most buyers is why they'd decide to get it.

It's a classic 80's score geared towards a certain demographic. Who's going to buy this score not knowing a thing about the film and it's music? The big band music was an important part of the film. Intrada is not "pulling a fast one" on the consumer base.

Solium: As I've written elsewhere, when you have limited space on a CD, particularly a re-release geared for fans of the original, you normally don't want lots of that space taken up by source cues that probably can be easily found elsewhere. Most of us James Horner and "Cocoon" fans are buying it to get more of the original music and maybe better fidelity and NOT for the rest -- and probably not even for Michael Sembello's "Gravity" (which I find intrusive and unnecessary, although it's included in the new release, but mercifully at the end of it).

I'm one of them.

I certainly don't need the "Gravity" song included - just to "extend" the running time....

Seems like the cue I really wanted is not on it.

Mike or Neil possibly?

Why wasn't that "Dancing In The Dark" cue included? I am not even sure if that is the correct title, but - I really wanted that music in high quality.

Maybe James Horner didn't conduct that after all - any info on this would be welcome.

...and "TerraEpon" - there is no need for swearing - do not down grade yourself like that! If you love this score, then have some respect, if not, don't bother posting!

I am simply saying that I would like more symphonic music on this album rather than pop elements.

It's likely a recording by someone else that was licensed for use in the film.

I would imagine it's the same for Chattanooga Choo Choo and the like.
