I was trying to work out the music to Excalibur in me head and who wrote it. Talk about driving me nuts, but the penny finally dropped.. Bloody WAGNER..which happens to be my all time Favorite classical composer, that makes this error on my behalf all the more biblical.
Whats more, the scenes with Merlin and to Siegfried’s Funeral march and more still they play the Ride of the Valkyrie..which for those who do not know is the piece they play in Apocalypse Now with the choppers screaming across the water…..( Duval) “Scares the fuck outta the gooks”.
He’s ( Wagner) a very morose character, deep dark and broody…but fuck could the boy write!.
If you want a wicked CD..go get Twilight of the Gods..The essential Wagner Collection..all the really cool good, dark, violent stuff packaged together..Best played in thunderstorms and when going into battle…………………………………ARRRRRRRRH
