May It Be – Enya

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh, how far you are from home

Mornie utulie [Darkness has come]
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie [Darkness has fallen]
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie [Darkness has come]
Believe and you will find your way

Mornie alantie [Darkness has fallen]
A promise lives within you now
A promise lives within you now

The Right Stuff Theme

Bill Conti’s music for the Right Stuff, along with a few images of Chuck Yeager and the cast members portraying the Mercury Seven astronauts.

I read somewhere that the studio only gave him about ten days to turn in a full score, and with such a tight deadline he was forced to adapt classical music instead of write original compositions.

Rather cheeky of him to use Russian music (Tchaikovsky) for a movie extolling American astronauts during the Cold War!
