The Accidental Tourist, by john Williams

The Accidental Tourist is one of my favorite films, whose score is a remarkably prismatic theme by John Williams. Here are three different versions and I cannot remember where I got them.

I'm confused. Did you write these? If not, I should probably move these.
In any case, they're gorgeous. I've personally avoided neighboring/passing tones/escape tones when the tonic chord wasn't pedal, but I think it works really well here.

If you don't mind, I'll move this over to the "suggest works" section of the site, since this one is for compositions, haha.

I REALLY like this. Never had a clue about the movie or the scores or anything. Love the open airiness and the old classic sophisticated feel this sound has. It is gorgeous. I do hear the seed of how this is John Williams. However, it is a stretch out somewhere else with Williams to write this way (don't mean it is hard for him rather that it is just a little different and not typical). It is even more beautiful then a lot of his other more commonly known stuff. Very interesting. Thanks for the share.
