And I started to be confident about my music theory Can anyone explain that to me? I have not pulled out the sheet music to analyze the harmony myself, but the short answer is "mode mixture. John Williams loved using mode mixture and you will find it in all of his scores. Mode mixture was popular with most of the late romantic classical composers, and Williams followed in their footsteps, and is just as accomplished with harmony as any of the masters. The F major is a b7 bVII chord, which is borrowed from mixolydian mode. The Bb major bIII chord is even more common, it is borrowed from aeolian mode.
Typical college harmony texts touch very lightly on late romantic harmonic usage, and frequently the theory instructor doesn't understand it himself, so he doesn't cover it well. For example, bVII - V ia a "cowboy cadence". I love this paper, read paragraph 4.

The basic procedure is to use notes from the same key you are in, but mayor if you are in minor and minor if you are in mayor. I'm terrible at explaining myself, sorry! Rob Senior Member. G-Bb-C-D-F and build a major chord on each of them. That's also a common rock guitar device JW is a jazzer. Used to play piano for Hank Mancini One of the hardest concepts to grasp when you study harmony is As others have described this is commonly called mode mixture but this is anaylsis after the fact. One of the joys I had as a record producer was watching "Unskilled sic " guitar players in bands just FIND the next chord by ear and desire Bowie, The Beatles JW uses a lot of chromatic mediance.
He basically barrows chords by moving his triads by thirds minor or major intervals. Its a really cool trick because it always sounds good.

I guess the original sound of this piece from the movies is just too iconic and has too much depth to sound great as a simple piano piece-it always sounds like something is missing.
I thought I was ordering the full composition, my first actual purchase.
