John Williams, of course, needs no introduction--he's the acclaimed, award-winning composer of the iconic music heard in films like the Star Wars trilogy, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the Indiana Jones movies, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Empire of the Sun, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, and more.
After all those grandiose epics, Williams chose to score Home Alone in 1990, which was somewhat more down to earth, taking place in an Illinois suburb and was regarded as a kiddie Christmas comedy. And yet, he managed to come out with truly beautiful Christmas songs for the film's score, including Somewhere in my Memory, which has since become one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs.
Somewhere in my Memory was the showpiece of both Home Alone movies, and the song was nominated for an Academy Award and Grammy Award. There's no actual video made for the song, but here's one that includes awesome photos of Christmas in Quebec by YouTube user astorka100.
