Barry De Vorzon


Barry De Vorzon (born July 31, 1934 in New York City) is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and composer. His first big hit was with The Tamerlanes, with whom he sang lead on their hit I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight in 1963. De Vorzon worked as an A&R rep for Valiant Records later in the 1960s, during which time he signed The Association and produced their first single, a cover of the Bob Dylan tune One Too Many Mornings. De Vorzon composed the soundtracks to many 1970s and 1980s films, and one of the tunes, Cotton's Theme (from Bless the Beasts and Children) was rescored by Perry Botkin Jr. and retitled Nadia's Theme for the television soap opera, The Young and the Restless. Nadia's Theme hit #8 on the US Top 40 in 1976 and the album from which it was taken shot to #42 on the Billboard 200; in 1977, it won a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Arrangement. De Vorzon also composed the tune It's Christmas Time in San Francisco. De Vorzon is perhaps best known for his participation in creating soundtrack for the cult film, The Warriors (1979), directed by Walter Hill. After The Warriors, De Vorzon composed several more soundtracks for Private Benjamin (1980), The Comeback Kid (1980), Xanadu (1980), Simon & Simon (1981), Looker (1981), Mr. Mom (1983), V: The Final Battle (1984), Mischief (1985), Stick (1985) and Night of the Creeps (1986). De Vorzon's last film soundtrack was The Exorcist (1990); he has been inactive in the music industry ever since. Read more on...
