How sad, he's written some truly great film scores over the years. This is one of my favourites of his, the remix of The John Dunbar Theme from Dances With Wolves:

Definitely one of the greatest composers of theme tunes of the 20th century. Everyone has a favourite - amazing music.

Legend. Arguably king of the soundtrack along with Bernard Herrmann. Brilliant string and horn writing. You can tell a Barry score from miles away, awesome composer. I posted You Only Live Twice theme on Facebook :splif:

RIP John, sadly missed :(
