Juju, may I ask you a question?

Oh, thanks so much for the chords and tonality elucidation! I don't play any instrument and I have no musical education as well, but it's exciting to see John Williams' music itemized (or what the word is) the way you do it! I like it!

I would have one small question, juju, if you don't mind. Do you think John Williams realizes that there is a certain similitude between the opening riff of Hook theme and Across the Stars love theme that many have pointed out at? Myself I don't find it any belittling the impact of the love theme upon my emotional innerness and I don't feel being any betrayed, but what may torment me a little is the question whether John wanted for the new love theme to be a "safe bet" and couldn't find a motif "sturdy" enough to deliver the longed-for, so he couldn't have but anchored the opening of this love theme in much-worshiped Hook's theme? Or is it , you think, just an coincidence that these two OUTSTANDING motifs eventually as performed by the orchestra sound a bit reminiscent of each other? Because I still DO believe that John is capable of bringing out a complete original-sounding theme that could deliver the desired effect as it was intended for the Across the Stars.

I don't know why I am asking all this, but running out of ideas is the last thing of which I would have wanted to speculate in connection with John Williams' compositional skills and his unflagging inventiveness.

Thanks in advance! (May I know which of all of the themes Williams has composed so far does appeal to you most above all, for either compositional perfection or emotional impact?)


P.S. I have read one guys' post at somewhere else who heard a snippet of music used in probably trailer for MINORITY REPORT and he reports that there are certain similarities between the stuff presented and the Lost World score's actiony music... This would have concerned me either; though the guy is not 100% sure whether the stuff as appeared in the trailer was the new music or actually outtake from the Lost World score.
