Actually I am glad Johnny didn't bail on Heartbeeps and Monsignor.

Thanks to your post I noticed I misnamed the column "Film Score Monthly 7/8/22". Fixed.

Heartbeeps is a score that has really grown on me over the last 40 years, while I was thinking about Monsignor this week while seeing The Elephant Man - those scores have always felt like cousins to me.

Boy am I glad Williams DID bail on Alien... though Images certainly demonstrates that he could have done it.

In an alternate universe somewhere, there exists a version of Alien with a John Williams score and a version of Superman: The Movie scored by Goldsmith!

I prefer this universe (all else being equal of course)… but I wouldn’t mind visiting that one for a few hours!)

No argument here!

The universe without Goldsmith's Alien music is one I would not want to live in, much as the idea of a Williams Alien score is tantalizing.

That should be Williams' project for his retirement - writing music inspired by all those films he almost scored (Bicentennial Man, Wolf...). The greatest "concept albums" ever.

Well, Goldsmith did score Supergirl and Williams did score two killer shark movies. Jaws is not quite the equivalent of creeping alien horror, but it's close.
