John Williams is the most popular living composer in the Ultimate Hall of Fame, with 5 entries in total — the same as Dvořák, Vivaldi and Puccini, amongst others. This is his first entry, and it's featured in every chart since 2005, reaching its highest ever position of 100 in 2015.
John Williams came up with one of his most fitting scores when he set Spielberg's dinosaurs to music. The minute this theme was first aired in 1992, it sounded like it had been around for millions of years, instantly an old friend. It has majesty, somehow, written into the score and befits the wonderful, enormous creatures that Spielberg brought to life on the screen.
