If you had a childhood in the nineties, David Arnold probably soundtracked it.
The British composer, arguably best known for scoring five James Bond films and Danny Boyle's London's 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, is responsible for more blockbuster scores in that decade than most, heightening our thrills in Stargate, Godzilla and – of course - Independence Day.
Now two decades on and fans of the 1996 sci-fi - affectionately known as ID4 - can enjoy it like never before: on 22 September, it will be screened at the Royal Albert Hall accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Tickets for which can be found here.
Conducted by Gavin Greenaway, this 20th anniversary event will kick off with a talk from Arnold himself, fresh from scoring the new series of BBC’s Sherlock, and no doubt keen to relive those heady, landmark obliterating memories.
We asked Arnold to give us his Ultimate Playlist, and he didn't let us down. Personal, touching and full of great songs, it's a heck of a list.
