Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Mel Brooks' Greatest Hits

I picked up this LP in 1978 or whenever, and immediately started paying closer attention to the music in movies.

John Morris's work in some of Mel Brooks' films apporaches genius in its applicability to the onscreen action, AND its ability to stand alone as interesting (and hilarious) music. 

In some of the songs, Gene Wilder or Brooks wrote the lyrics.  And in the song "Hope for the Best, Expect the Worst," the melody itself is a folk song also heard in one of Brahms's Hungarian Dances.

But what you hear on this record, friend, true genius!

If you have not seen the films featured here, your world is missing something wonderfully silly.

These are the songs:
High Anxiety
1 Main Title 3:01
2 High Anxiety 2:32

4 If You Love Me Baby, Tell Me Loud 1:33
5 End Title 2:38

6 Springtime For Hitler 3:24
7 Prisoners Of Love 2:25
The Twelve Chairs

8 Hope For The Best, Expect The Worst 2:38
9 Vorobyaninov's Theme (The Walk Through Russia) 3:15
Blazing Saddles

10 Blazing Saddles 2:20
11 The French Mistake 0:31
12 I'm Tired 4:36
Young Frankenstein
