Joel Hirschhorn Died

Joel Hirschhorn, who shared two Academy Awards for theme songs in "The Poseidon Adventure" (1973) and "The Towering Inferno," (1975) has died. He was 67. Hirschhorn died Sunday of a heart attack at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, his wife, documentary producer Jennifer Carter Hirschhorn, said Monday. He had broken his shoulder in a fall Friday night, she said. Hirschhorn's songs sold more than 90 million records, were featured in 20 movies and were recorded by various artists. Elvis recorded his song "Your Time Hasn't Come Yet Baby" in 1967 for the movie soundtrack of "Speedway". Two years later, Hirschhorn and Kasha, who co-wrote the Elvis track, were nominated for a pair of Oscars for songs from the Disney animated film "Pete's Dragon." Hirschhorn and Kasha also received two Tony Award nominations.

"Your Time Hasn't Come Yet Baby" is an underated song. Released as the A side on a 45single c/w "Let Yourself Go"in 1967, it was a huge hit in Asia, making it to No.1 in the Radio Malaysia Top 10 Charts. Rest in Peace Mr.Joel Hirschhorn. Thanks for the nice song!
