Vangelis reusing themes

Post by Marji4x » Sun Sep 27, 2009 12:37 pm

SO I've been watching Carls Sagan's "Cosmos" and the music kept reminding me of the theme from "Chariots of Fire". I eventually found out that both were composed by the same guy, Vangelis. Weird that he seems to have reused the theme. ANyway here's some examples if you want to hear for yourself:

Chariots of Fire (the theme when the piano comes in):

Cosmos (starting at 2:04 the trumpet theme):
