RIP Marvin Hamlisch

A sad bit of news. At the age of 68, Marvin Hamlisch, one of the few EGOT winners, passed away from an unknown illness. It is interesting to think about the impact that Hamlisch had on music in film. As the Original Song category unjustly becomes a joke, its nice to look at the the way things were (pun intended), when greats like Marvin Hamlisch composed scores and songs that were as memorable, or sometimes even more so, than the films in which they were featured. He was a legendary talent who will be forever irreplaceable. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family. Rest in peace old friend.
