    I only know Chariots of Fire. I've most likely heard more of his music but don't know the names off hand.

    I play the piano and people love to hear me play "Hymne" - at weddings, Christmas, anytime.

    Guilty, your honor.

    Really etherial, meditative stuff. "Chariots of Fire" is his cute little pop song by comparison to his other material.

    My favorite is "Le Petit Fille de le Mer"

    such a lovely melody!!!
    I tried learning it on the piano, but its quite complex.

    I love the Blade Runner soundtrack which is all music by them. The Love Theme is a particular favourite.

    Do you mean :

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial]La petite femme et la mer[/FONT]

    I'm going to download it. The first page looks very simple. Does it get progressively more complex?

    I have several Vangelis albums from years ago, nothing recent.

    Aaah!
    What's really hot about vangelis is the fact he's married to ( or was perhaps?)
    one of the most beautiful and interesting women on the screen,
    charlotte rampling.
    "the night porter", gosh!

    Vangelis Trivia: While the music listening public knows and loves the artist Vangelis, few are aware that his original name is Vaginosis, which he changed upon entering show business for obvious reasons.

    Vaginosis?? Sounds like a gynecological disease!

    I love the Blade Runner soundtrack but nothing quite clinched it for me the way L'enfant did in The Year of Living Dangerously, Peter Weir's magnificent and shamefully underrated film about a young reporter in Indonesia during the PKI uprising. Gibson never looked better, Sigourney Weaver was entrancing, and the acting was so good, Linda Hamilton garnered an Oscar for supporting actress. Just a wonderful story well told.
