“Sondheim was hired by Warren Beatty to write the complete score for his film REDS, in which Beatty starred with Diane Keaton. As Sondheim would score the scenes, Beatty would sit and squirm, until finally he told Sondheim that he didn't like the music that illustrated what the characters were feeling. After much discussion, Sondheim ascertained that what Beatty really wanted was a love theme he could use throughout the picture. So, Sondheim delivered the beauty in ‘Goodbye For Now’. Ultimately, David Grusin would write the rest of the score, as Sondheim was immersed in the intensely troubled preview period for MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG. But his theme shines throughout the film, a truly lovely paen to the film's lovers.”
