"What most people remember about the movie HOME ALONE is the slapstick comedy. Funny stuff to be sure but what made the film work so well was it's underlying drama. Director John Hughes set the story during the Christmas season to further exploit the drama of being seperated from your loved ones. For all the antics involved, HOME ALONE is first and foremost a Christmas movie. This setting gave composer John Williams the chance to write some of his most charming and festive music ever. The score is built upon William's lovely "Somewhere In My Memory" (lyrics by Leslie Bricusse) which was given a deserved oscar nomination. Here is a song that is a contemporary Christmas classic and should be a perrenial favorite. Here is an album that should be under every soundtrack and Christmas music lover's tree. It's one gift that is guaranteed to give years of enjoyment."
I JUST LOVE THIS!

"Whether or not this review helps....I'd just like to express how happy this cd makes me. actually the song I really love is "Carol of the Bells," it absolutely brings joy to my heart!"

"John Williams is by far my favorite composer in Hollywood and I really did enjoy this movie. So I guess I am basically as biased as one can get! I apologize in advance for that. This score is one of the great holiday scores of all time. The score is beautiful with moments of playfulness, surprise, and even a little creepiness (the opening little music box figure). However, I think it is absolutely necessary to comment on the songs on this album. I am not talking about the standard Christmas songs, although they do put you back into the movie when listening to them. I am referring to Williams' two masterpieces "Star of Bethlehem" and "Somewhere in my Memory." These are easily two of Williams' best songs and they both capture Christmas perfectly in their own unique way. This score has too much great music to be overlooked."
