Titanic | Suite | James Horner
The love theme is iconic and takes its place in the hallowed halls of the Pantheon of great cinematic themes. Masterful is how Horner managed against the backdrop of the tragedy of Titanic’s epic disaster to not lose the intimacy of the Jack and Rose’s love story. The fact that the soundtrack album and song “My Heart Will Go On” both achieved #1 billboard status for several weeks offers a testament of his brilliant achievement and mastery of his craft. Titanic is one of the finest scores in Horner’s canon, and a late Bronze Age gem.
