This Way Mary  performed by  John Barry  (1974)
Composed by Barry/Black
From: UK
Mood: atmospheric
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Tuesday 18th September 2001

I love John Barry. Actually he doesn't seem like such a great guy personally, but I love a lot of his music. This track was originally composed for the soundtrack of the 1971 film 'Mary, Queen of Scots'. However, the sound is very modern. The track is built around a recurring piano riff (which incidentally was sampled by the group Chapterhouse on their 1991 indie/shoegazing single 'mesmerize'), and the tune is played by a synthesized, echoey harpsichord. It's a delightfully simple but very catchy track which stands up to repeated listening.

from Play it again (Polydor)
available on CD - The very best of (Polydor Europe)

Other Versions: Scott Walker does a great vocal version on 'The moviegoer'
