It is and that would be my second favourite

Yes, it's quite magical.
The way she almost whispers the opening lyrics straight into your ear is beautiful.

I have a few:

The Final Chapter - Escape from the Planet of the Apes
The End of the City - Logan's Run
The Celebration - Capricorn One (LP recording)
The Final Conflict - The Final Conflict
Final Message - Outland
Welcome Aboard - Air Force One
A New Life - Total Recall
A Good Start - Star Trek: The Motion Picture

If we were counting just end credits, the list really gets longer.

Science fiction claptrap (James Brolin?!?)

Capricorn One was actually a conspiracy thriller. It's only thought of as Sci-Fi because, well, space. But it's really about the government making movies and killing people.

And Goldsmith made a career out of scoring "science fiction claptrap" which resulted in some of his best work.

and religious superstition films

"Religious superstition films" as you call them, often have some of cinemas greatest music. The Robe, Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments, etc want a word with you.

No one's mentioned "Toasted Marshmallow" from Dennis The Menace. And "A Lot Better" from Leviathan.

We're leaving off end credits, which is why Leviathan wasn't on my list, along with The Swarm and a host of others.

Dare I remind 'Indy1981' that Raiders of the Lost Ark is a 'religious superstition' film.

I'll agree with "The Celebration" Cue being my favorite Goldsmith Finale Track. Starting so delicately with piano playing Kay's Theme (The Love Theme) and building and building triumphantly and heroically the Maestro nailed it completely. And then going right into his powerful end title music is icing on the cake. It works simply brilliantly somehow even with the spectators moving and reacting in real time and Brolin and Gould running in slow motion.


John Williams wonderful finale cue for THE TOWERING INFERNO and then going straight into his "An Architect's Dream" End Title Music is another example that is just brilliant.

I know this is a Goldsmith thread but I don't think anyone will really object to this Williams Towering Inferno finale cue. Enjoy. Movie Music was so Awesome back in those good old days. Our dear Maestros sure knew how to end a movie with their music.

Absolutely Zoob.
John Williams also delivered his fair share of zinger Finale cues (JAWS 1 & 2, BLACK SUNDAY, DRACULA, THE FURY, STAR WARS, CE3K, E.T) alongside Jerry Goldsmith.
Nowadays, it's usually the screen goes black and I'm like 'oh, is that it then' wink

Before he rules on that, I'm going to say that my favorite end titles are from Leviathan and The Swarm. Two of the most joyous pieces of music I've ever heard.

Agree with Leviathan, great end title (IK have the DVD and CD, I like the film, unlike most other people). Can't recall Swarm's, though I've seen the film and have the Prometheus CD.

Science fiction claptrap (James Brolin?!?) and religious superstition films shouldn't qualify for best Goldsmith finale.

Capricon One is an excellent film, imo. And you would say that about 'religious' things (not that I'd ever watch the Omen films), given your handle here.

Papillon. Goldsmith's music perfectly captures what I view as the victory of the Individual over the Institution.

(and no, I've never been in prison!)


100%!

One of my favorites is Rent-a-Cop, even though I've never seen the film.

One of my fave scores and I like the film a lot, unlike 99% of the population. Reynolds and Minelli are good together!
