Comments about the soundtrack for All the King's Men (James Horner)

Power Theme :: Harry Potter 'Arrival of Baby Harry' Theme   Tuesday, October 10, 2006 (6:35 p.m.) 

Hey... I am not a Horner basher, so please don't take this as such. I just find this interesting:

Does anyone else notice the acute similarity, in theme AND structure, between James' main theme for All the King's Men (at the beginning of Main Title), to John Williams' theme for the Arrival of Baby Harry in the beginning of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?

If you don't believe me, just listen to track 3 on the Sorcerer's Stone score... "Arrival of Baby Harry".

The similarity is definitely there, and enough to where on only the second listen to 'Main Title', I couldn't ignore it.

Well, the beginning of Horner's Main titles reminds me of Titanic, not Harry Poter. It's far from it. The Baby Harry has a OBVIOUS and DAMN STRONG 'Harry Potter' theme.
