I think you are so jealous about john Williams' popularity all over the world. You are jealous mainly because just you never heard people talking about Mr.Vangelis or any classical composers. I don't think you are that much stupid to ignore one fact that this particular website is about film score not about any old classical music or composers. I don't think you can't persuade or force other people to listen to classical music. You are totally insecured person. Don't listen to classical music too much. If you think classical music is the best then go ahead listen and stick on to it. Don't make insensible comments by saying that 'Everybody says John Williams is great composer' yes this particular thread is about Maestro John Williams' "STAR WARS". Yes, i don't hesitate to call as Maestro, instead i am really proud to call him Maestro.

It is merely stupid to say "Calling John Williams the best composer of all time is like saying that all other composers cannot compose music", it clearly shows if anyone praises John Williams you'll get ANGRY, instead, if anyone praises Beethoven you'll get HAPPY. COME ON, STOP THIS PREJUDICE.

Then another idiotic stuff from YOU, in fact i laughed at you like anything, read what you have written,"If you had mentioned one of the classical guys(Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn)or someone from the Baroque era(Vivaldi,Telemann,Bach etc) or maybe a romantic composer(Schumann, Mahler, Bruckner), I would not have minded much!", hey are you blind? don't you see this particular thread is about Williams' work not about Old guys like Schumann,Mahler, Beethoven e.t.c. How can you ask people to comment upon these old guys?. This makes you are totally immature.

Last but not least, See, if you like Classical music, that's fine but without knowing anything about Williams or any other film score composer, how can you make a such blind statement? First of all,Did you know anything about your own favorite classical composers completely? No. but you speak blindly.

If you don't like Williams that's fine, but you can't keep on hurting other feelings. One last thing, if everybody likes John Williams because he just fulfill the expectations of listeners. At the same time, it doesn't mean other composer doesn't do that. But he does more for listeners. If you accept or not, I JUST DON'T CARE.

ONE IMPORTANT THING, I LIKE TO REMAIN YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN, THIS FILMTRACKS WEBSITE IS ABOUT FILM SCORES NOT ABOUT CLASSICAL MUSIC.

DON'T LISTEN TO JUST CLASSICAL SCORE! LISTEN ALL TYPE OF MUSIC.

GROW UP! WRITE SOME SENSIBLE STUFF.
