Description

This article is from the ER FAQ, by Rose Cooper cooper@acm.cse.msu.edu with numerous contributions by others.

7.1 Can I buy a soundtrack of "ER" music?

[*May* I buy a soundtrack...]
Yes. Atlantic Records has released an "ER" soundtrack composed mainly
of instrumental music from the show. It includes the ever-popular theme by
James Newton Howard, and two original songs. It does NOT include any of the
pop music standards heard on the show such as "Twist And Shout", "Take A
Letter Maria" or the often-asked-about "If You Want Me To Stay" by Sly and
the Family Stone (see section 7.3 below).

Here`s a track list, taken from Atlantic Records' web site for the
soundtrack. (For more information, check out the soundtrack web site at
<http://feature.atlantic-records.com/er/Disc.HTML>; for a review of the CD,
check out "LINER NOTES: A FAQer's view of the ER Soundtrack" at

7.11 Can, uh, *may* I HEAR some "ER" music?

[Yes, you may.]
There are a few web pages listed on the ER Links page
<http://www.digiserve.com/er/erlinks.html> that include some
soundbites from various ER episodes; of those pages, Katy Lindemann's
"The Music Of ER" [hmmm...where have I heard *that* before?] page,
located at <http://members.xoom.com/ermusic/>, stands out. Katy's
page, a companion piece of sorts to this ER FAQ section, includes a
number of .midi, .wav, and RealAudio snippets from not only the ER
Soundtrack, but also most of the musical interludes that are noted
in Section 7 of the FAQ. Bammer Sez this is a Must See Site...
