Something for Thursday

Film music fans tend to really enjoy End Credit suites, because often times -- although less so now than in previous years, what with the rise of pop tunes in films even with orchestral scores -- the composer gets to write what is basically a concert overture blending the main themes of their score.

By way of examples, here are the End Credit suites from several of the Star Trek movies!

Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Jerry Goldsmith:

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, James Horner:

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Horner again.
(The actual suite for the rolling of the credits is identical to the
Wrath of Khan suite, but I really dig the intro, with the neat
way Horner used the original theme from the teevee series before sequeing
into his own stuff.)

Star Trek Into Darkness, Michael Giacchino:
