A Man for All Seasons Johnny English (OS 2003) Robbie Williams and The Johnny English Band The obligatory theme song, written by Robbie Williams and Hans Zimmer.
Theme From Johnny English Orchestra conducted by Edward Shearmur James Bond fans will recognize the parody of the famous "James Bond Theme" by Monty Norman.
Kismet Bond This one was written by Gay-Yee Westerhoff, 'cellist for the British string quartet Bond - four very attractive and talented young women who have been tearing up the classical charts in Britian with classical and crossover numbers. The appear briefly in the film, probably because having a group called Bond in a James Bond send-up was too good a joke to pass up.
Let the Games Begin Sinbad, Legend of the Seven Seas (OS 2003) Orchestra conducted by Harry Gregson-Williams Williams' score for Sinbad is fairly generic action film stuff, although the liberal use of a wordless female chorus is a nice touch. Harry Gregson-Williams is a relative newcomer to the film soundtrack scene but has already racked up some impressive credits, including Smilla's Sense Of Snow, the thriller Deceiver, the actioner The Replacement Killers and (with John Powell) Chicken Run.
Idea Seabiscuit (OS 2003) Orchestra conducted by Randy Newman Songwriter and performer Newman has been scoring films since the early 1980s. His credits include The Natural (1984), Maverick (1995), Toy Story (1995), Toy Story II (1999), and A Bug's Life (1998).
