    Thumbs up Dances with wolves - John Dunbar theme

    Does anyone know this piece? It is and outstanding piece for the movie. So well structured that sets the tone of the movement of people from one place to another. the pace of the music breath with you. You can almost smell the fresh air in the mountains!

    Yes, indeed it's beautiful. So simple and effective. And critics love to trash it calling it simplistic, insipid, uninspired, trivial...but don't listen to those people. It's quite folk-song like and its simple harmony makes it that much stronger. John Barry didn't write a lot of music that I care for, to be honest. But damn, that's one fine tune.
