Close Encounters Of The 300th Kind

I assume that you are all well aware of the five tones used by us earthlings to communicate with the aliens in Spielberg‘s 1978 classic ‘Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” But did you know that those five tones were composed by John Williams who also provided the theme and soundtrack. But you probably would have guessed that it would have been recorded by Mr Williams. But for me what is really interesting is that John Williams wrote 300 of them before Steven Spielberg picked the famous one that made it into the film.

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
