What´s even stranger is the fact that this same piece of music was actually used twice by Michael Kamen: once in Die hard as told, and the other ocassion being a film with Michael Douglas and Melanie Griffith about WWII (I don't remember the name) Funny huh? Does Kamen really love this piece or what? It's also worth mentioning that before this Aliens piece, you can hear in Die Hard also a piece by John Scott (from the film Man on fire)!!!!!
