Black Rain is also one of my favorite scores. One of the few times where both the film and the score holds a special place in my heart. I get goosebumps every single time I pop in the Blu-Ray and crank up the sound and hear the descending synths as Black Rain appears on the Red Sun, and it fades into a much softer version of I'll Be Holding On. I've tried for ages to get hold of that cue in a clean version but nobody seems to care or know. In addition, the movie version of Nick and Masa seems somewhat different to the album version(s). Got the original album, and I got the bootleg, but I can't help but feel like there's just some really good stuff missing.
