John Barry

'Don has a fine dramatic sense,' says Barry. 'My music is theatrical. I love responding to a script. Someone shows me Out of Africa and i can't wait to react to it in my music. Don has that same instinct. It's more difficult than you think to stop movie songs sounding corny, but he manages it.'

1985 Out of Africa

Don collaborated once more with John Barry on the 1985 Academy Award winning Out Of Africa starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. Barry confessed ‘I do have a dark side, that’s part of being a musical dramatist. I have fed that darkness into scores like The Lion In Winter, Dances With Wolves and Out Of Africa. All those stories have darkness in them. Don balances that in me, which is why we’re such a good team’.

Dances With Wolves

Lyrics Don wrote for Barry's famous themes from Out of Africa (the song is called 'Places') and Dances With Wolves ('Here's To The Heroes') have been successful in Europe (going gold in Germany, sung by the tenor Erkan Aki), and there are plans for American and British releases as well.

1990 Dances With Wolves

The original score and songs for Academy Award and Golden Globe winning film Dances with Wolves were composed and conducted by John Barry with lyrics written by Don. Don says it’s unsurprising that Barry is given to overwhelming mood swings. ‘Who knows where that music comes from? You wonder how a guy like this can write Dances With Wolves. What does he know about frontier life in the Wild West? The guy comes from York, for heaven’s sake. The answer has to be that there’s a great depth of emotion in him.’
