The soundtrack from the motion picture Titanic is the highest-selling primarily orchestral soundtrack ever. Back in 1996-1997 the American composer James Horner was approached by director James Cameron, after the musician Enya declined to work on the project. With the help of Will Jennings he wrote the signature song “My Heart Will Go On”, after he chose Céline Dion to sing the song. It became a worldwide hit and an instant classic. Horner used both electronics as an orchestra to create the layered pieces for the soundtrack. The beautiful cues are interwoven in the story line, from the romance to the tragic downfall of the boat. It’s an exceptional score which shows us how great the composer James Horner was.
