Whenever you need a little pick-me-up or encouragement, just hit play on this CD! The musical arrangements are inspiring and uplifting on their own, but for anyone who has seen the movie, you cannot help but be reminded of the personal courage and determination of Rudy Ruttiger. A great musical score to a great movie, - you will not be disappointed with your purchase.
Be advised that the CD does not include the Notre Dame Fight Song that was featured in the ending credits of the movie.

This little soundtrack is every bit as inspirational as the story of pint-sized Rudy. The music has become so popular that it's often used in trailers and tv spots. Few movies attribute their success to an uplifting score; some are burdened with sappy melodies and others lack the emotional investment of good music. Composer Jerry Goldsmith manages a happy marriage of both extremes, however. His score effectively becomes part of the film without overtaking it; it does what a good score should and deepens the action and characterizations.
Overall, the music is light in tone, never oppressive, which would have been an easy and obvious route for a movie about football. My favorite track is the "Main Title," which introduces the musical theme. It is hopeful, inspirational, and ultimately uplifting. Had I not first seen the movie, I could still gather this much about the film. Other tracks, such as "Waiting," "Tryouts," and "The Final Game" convey the spirited and triumphant atmosphere with a chorus of flutes whistling across strong, brassy undertones. I also liked the touch of nostalgia Goldsmith weaves in, cementing the hope and innocence of the story and era on film and CD.

Apart from the beautiful horned out main theme, this album boasts one of the greatest inspiring fanfares you'll ever hear. My wife even likes it, and that's saying something. Ha, HA from her. As a comparison to Hoosiers. Same style but they're uniquely their own. I love both scores, but Hoosiers is the only one of the two movies I like.

After a successfull collaboration on the sports film Hoosiers, composer Jerry Goldsmith and director David Anspaugh, teamed up again for Rudy. Like Hoosiers before it, Rudy has a very memorable musical score, that is emotionally charged and powerful.
The gentle theme is a great basis for the inspiring real life story of Rudy The music travels with Rudy as he tries to realize his dream and play Notre Dame football. The magic of the score is in its simplicity. The combination of flute, choral, strings and piano makes for great music that will be with you, long after you first hear it. The soundtrack is a great to listen to, as you try, and complete any task (like writing product reviews). It will make the job just fly by. The best part of the score is without a doubt the rousing cue called "The Final Game" The liner notes feature a word or two, from both the real life Ruettiger and Anspaugh, about Goldsmith's work; As well as photos from the scoring/recording sessions, and a few film pics
Under normal circumstances, my only complaint about the soundtrack might be its length, at 36:48. But the music is so good here...I can let that slide. The CD has 10 tracks and comes highly recommended.
Note: Folks who like the score to Rudy as much as I do, should also check out the film on DVD, it features an isolated music score track option. When used, you can hear the entire score, including music, not found on this CD

The music is fine as far as it goes, but I bought the CD assuming that the stirring versions of the N.D. fight song and alma mater would be included on the CD. (This is the sound track, n'est-ce pas?) If the CD had been promoted as Jerry Goldsmith's compositions for the movie "Rudy," that would be one thing, but it is advertised as the soundtrack. It is a ...

I remember I rented the film "Rudy" and I really had no idea to expect. I knew it was about football but that was it. I didn't expect it to become my one of my favourite films, nor did I expect to love the soundtrack so much. Jerry Goldsmith's score perfectly captures the emotion in the film, especially in track 5 where Rudy tells his girlfriend he's leaving for Southbend and especially in the song "The Final Game", which is one of the most emotional and beautiful scenes in a film I've ever seen - the song accompanies that scene perfectly. Even if you haven't seen the film, this soundtrack is a must! I've had this since 1995 and I still listen to it frequently and I can't say that about many CD's.
