OMG! Kim & Shane's angsty theme! I can't tell you how many times in the mid-1980s the show would end on Patsy Pease sobbing her eyes out and that theme carrying through over the end credits. I am so snagged all of these to play on my computer for inspiration whenever I get around to doing a DAYSfic.
Finally! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

OMG!

Thanks so much for that link!

I love these themes, especially Steve and Kayla's and Roman and Marlena's.

I may just use these for my fan fiction LOL.

WOW! The music back then was so good. Listening to a couple of those brought back some great memories of DAYS and how good it was back then.

Thanks for the link.

What? No "Friends and Lovers" by Liz (can't remember her real name). That's one song I thought that TPTB would include on this soundtrack. It actually made the Top 40 playlist at the time????

LOL, this is funny - especially because in last week's discussion thread, I was makin' a whole lotta hoopla about the new music in the Kate/Stefano scenes. It's definitely better than the shit that we're used to.

Days music went downhill once Marty Davich left. I know he went to GH but Corday should have done everything he could have to keep Davich.

Thanks for the YT link. Some of those tracks bring back such memories. I'm listening to the one right now for Roman's death. I can remember those scenes so clearly because up until that point I could only watch the show during the summer or on holidays. My family finally got a VCR in November, 1984 and some of the first VCR scenes I saw involved Roman's death.

It didn't go drastically downhill but it took a hit. I think it really began to lose it in late 1997. From that point to early 2007 we got all this techno and over the top junk with a few good scores in between. When Ed Scott came on, things began to improve and, even after he left, it's still improved. The music is better now then it was from 1997-early 2007 but that isn't saying much. I would still kill for Marty Davich to be back. His work on every show he's been with (Days, GH, ER) has been superb.

Roman and Marlena's theme, Roman's theme, Bo and Hope's theme and wedding theme, and Steve and Kayla's theme are just EPIC.

Those are too slow and boring for my taste. I like some early 90´s Davich scores I remember from the show but sadly none seems to be included here. I quess these are from early to mid 80´s and without the emotional connection created to them during watching it doesn´t work on me.

As for the soundtrack, I´m big fan of synth/electronic music so I like most of Corday´s scores for the show. Especially during JER first run when the show had money and he had a lot of time there were some great scores. Now the music director is on clock as everybody else so they are using only few scores from cathalog again and again, but there are still some longer scenes sometime when the music surprises. Maybe I will buy the soundtrack.

I totally disagree. Yes the music improved sometime after Ed Scott came on if we compare it with 2003-2006 but there is no way the music from 2007-present is better than 1997-2002, no way. And some of the music that played in late 2007-early 2008 was music from the early 2000s.

And I agree with you Jane. Many of Davich's scores are slow and boring, he did get better in the early 90s. To bad that person on youtube didn't have the full versions of Victor's Theme and Stefano's Theme. The only good scores he composed were the themes for the couples and characters. His other scores were mediocre. And I think it's funny how he on his website completely ignores the fact that he worked on DAYS and GH.

The soundtrack was released yesterday so can someone remove the "rumor" part in the title please :)

I'm not saying every score from that period was bad but there were some awful ones. I did like the stuff used in the jungle storyline and some of the emotional scores were very good. It was the sci-fi/techno shit that sucked pretty much. The Princess Gina theme was great too.

I just think there was more of a return to actual dramatic scores and a departure from the techno junk once Scott joined and continuing to this day and I'm happy about it because that stuff was so loud and annoying that sometimes it took you right out of a scene.

I will agree that Davich's best was for characters and couples as you mentioned but those were pretty much all the scores the show used (he tended to use them repeatedly, much like the show does right now) for that period in the 80's so I don't really remember any other scores that were used regularly that weren't very good. Yes, his scores were slow but they were emotional and suited dramatic, emotional scenes well.

I will agree that his stuff in the early 90's was probably his best only because he tended to actually start developing scores outside of just characters and couples. The scores also began to get more of a primetime feel to them. They had more punch and weren't so "soapy."
