Commando Score - Tropical Wild Jungle Fever Returns Again

If you were waiting for a reissue of James Horner's wild tropical beast of a score for Commando, then you just missed out. The reissue for Commando sold out in less than 24 hours, showing there still are human beings with good taste in music!

The legendary 1985 score by Horner carries on from his wild "48 Hours" score, introducing heavy percussion, tropical drums and just wild action cues which haven't been heard since. Actually, they did reappear when Horner scored Red Heat a few years later, but this score is his definitive masterpiece alongside his Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Kahn soundtrack score.

This new release is on La La Land Records who have done a public service by releasing this beast of a score once more. Now if only James Horner pulled his finger out of his backside and did another score like this, we could have some more enjoyable one liners and wild action scenes.

To top it off, they have included the long trenchcoat Power Station anthem with this score to satisfy the cravings of everyone, somewhere, somehow, indeed..

Enjoy the score and remember these great one liners.

"I eat green beret's for breakfast and right now i'm very hungry".

"You're a funny guy Sully, I like you. That's why I'm going to kill you last."

"Don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired."

Even Sully went "oooh la laaaaa" when Matrix dropped him like a piece of meat.
