V/A, Midnight Cowboy [OST] (1969)
Known for that great Harry Nilsson theme song, the Midnight Cowboy score is a wee gem. One I’ve long held onto, via an imported CD copy. The film stands up too. Great film. Two really wonderful performances. Lots of lovely music on the score too – you get that when you have Nilsson, and also the great John Barry. Nice find, this. In a wee Oakland book store that had the very best small-selection of records I’ve seen, lots of great jazz and funk and plenty of interesting soundtracks; my go-to genres I guess…It was Faith No More’s cover of the theme from this movie that got me interested in both the film and original score.
