About the Soundtrack
Conan takes place 12,000 years ago between
the time when oceans swallowed Atlantis and man first recorded history. It was an age
undreamed of when mythical kingdoms were
spread across the uncharted world, in an age
of superstition and myth when wizards cast
evil spells and fantastic, mystical creatures
stalked the earth . . . The hyborian age.
Conan is the ultimate hero, a former slave
turned warrior general, chosen by the
gods to fight evil, rescue the weak and
the oppressed, and bring freedom back
to his beloved cimmeria.
Music is an integral part of any
production and impacts the storyline as
much as the actors and directors. twenty-
five percent of a film or television show can
be attributed to its music. The other seventy-
five percent is distributed equally between
the storyline, directing, and acting. The heroic
mood created by Charles Fox�s musical score
is both powerful and inspiring! It very success-
fully compliments the Conan Theme and
completes the quarters to form a whole.
CHARLES FOX has composed the music for
more than 50 motion pictures, including
Nine to five, The Gods Must Be Crazy II, Barbarella, National Lampoon�s European Vacation and Foul Play, for which he received
one of his two academy award nominations for
best song, the other for the film, the other side of the mountain. Among his popular songs are ready to take a chance again, I got a name and Killing Me Softly, which was awarded the grammy for
Best Song. His tv series and theme songs
include The Love Boat, Happy Days, Laverne And Shirley, The Paper Chase. Love, American Style, his first TV series brought him emmy awards
