If you want to know why it is simple. James Horner does not fear taking music that he has already written and reworking it. He's unique in the fact that he takes a known theme and puts it in a different contex. I don't know why it is driving you crazy. John Williams does much the same. He uses his Raiders of the Lost ark fight music in almost every movie. Michael Kamen....he's the real problem. His them for From the Earth to the Moon was nothing more than a poorly reworked Robin Hood theme. He uses the Die hard music in about everything he does and he has been known to use some of Horner's material. The thing you need to understand about James Horner is that he does not repeat himself to drive you crazy...he reworks his material to show you that his music is able to expand upon any movie at any time. So if the four note motif is driving you crazy just stop listening to it. Thanks
