Down 8 for this John Barry epic

It's the film that made Michael Caine, but Barry's score has achieved similar immortality over the years. In 1964, Barry was not yet synonymous with James Bond and was not the household name he later became. But it wasn't long after Zulu's success that people really began to take notice. Not only was this guy a skilled orchestrator, he could also write tunes catchy enough to rival anything in the pop charts.
