I strongly believe in the importance of the old. Much of my favorite music is from the 70’s. Many of the best blog posts I’ve read on the web are old blog posts. Old stuff can be great. It shouldn’t just sit around occupying the dark corners of bookshelves (or of the web).
Because of this, I am always happy when something awesome from the past pops up.
Last week in Hawaii, some friends and I visited a valley used as scenery in Jurassic Park. The day before, we watched the movie. Released nearly 20 years ago, the movie is still brilliant. It seems dated, but not 20-years dated. And the soundtrack is still as beautiful as I remember it 20 years ago. I fell in love with the theme song back when it was released, and just this past week, I have fallen in love with it again.
Since then, I’ve bee playing the theme song non-stop. It is old, but damn, it is better than 99% of the stuff I could be listening to. I think I’ll keep it going for a little while longer, and then put it aside. I just hope that I will re-discover it again the near future, and fall in love with it all over again.
For those looking for a bit of nostalgia plus and extra does of ridiculous-ness, I have stumbled across 10 hours of the Jurassic Park Theme, embedded below for your aural pleasure 🙂
