1Virtually unknown outside U.S. Naval Ranks, there is something known as "breakaway music." Breakaway music is a modern U.S. Naval tradition used to motivate sailors upon the conclusion of underway replenishment (UNREP). When the two ships involved in the UNREP conclude their transfer of fuels and stores, and commence their breakaway, a song, usually selected by the Captain, is played over the 1MC, the "all hands" circuit that talks to the entire ship. Breakaway music may sometimes be related to the name of the ship, such as the "Theme from Star Trek" (USS Enterprise), "Theme from Rocky" (USS Boxer) and the "Theme from Bad Company" (USS Forrestal). The present day breakaway music for the USS Nimitz upon completion of UNREP can only be the music uniquely written for the ship - John Scott's "Theme from The Final Countdown.".
2In 2007, John Scott premiered an original score to the 1922 silent film Robin Hood (1922), written by and starring Douglas Fairbanks. The work was performed by the Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra, Nottingham, England, and was performed in synchronization to the original film. A subsequent performance was made in 2012 at London's Cadogan Hall, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
3In 2003, John Scott unveiled his new orchestral score for the 1920 silent classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920), starring John Barrymore, conducting the 40-piece Hollywood Symphony Orchestra at the Haugh Performing Arts Auditorium, Citrus College, Glendora, California. The orchestra performed in synchronization to the original film.
4On October 16, 2013, John Scott was honored with The Gold Badge Award presented by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA), in association with PRS for Music. On this 40th Anniversary of the Award, the group celebrated the achievements of 12 men and women who have made a special contribution to Britain's music industry.
5"You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" was the first Beatles song to feature an outside musician (apart from "Love Me Do", the group's first EMI recording, in which producer George Martin had engaged a session drummer to substitute for the then-untried Ringo Starr). The basic rhythm track was recorded first, followed by George Harrison's guitar and some extra percussion. John Scott recorded a tenor flute in the spaces in Lennon's vocal track and an additional alto flute part, in harmony with the first, on the last available track of the four-track machine."-Bob Spitz, The Beatles: The Biography.
6Mr. Scott wrote the music and Arthur Hamilton the lyrics for "Remembering" for the motion picture England Made Me (1973). The song was performed by Lana Cantrell, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture. However, it became disqualified due to Ms. Cantrell's vocal being recorded over the motion picture title strip at the end of the feature. The Academy subsequently notified East Coast Records, and requested the instrumental version be nominated in its place. East Coast Records declined in support of Ms. Cantrell. As chairman of the Music Branch's Executive Committee, it was Mr. Hamilton's responsibility to disqualify his own song. The rule was changed the following year, and the use of a song over the end titles became eligible - and common practice.
7In Die Hard (1988), the final minutes were tracked with music from another Twentieth Century Fox feature. Originally a 'temp track,' the studio ultimately decided to leave it in the picture. The poignant music heard when McClane and Powell see each other for the first time, is from Scott's score for Man on Fire (1987), entitled "We've Got Each Other".
8In "The Beatles Diary Volume 1: The Beatles Years," it is noted that John Scott holds the distinction of being the first musician to have been invited to be featured on their recordings, playing both alto and tenor flute on "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away".
9Led two jazz bands during the sixties: The Johnny Scott Quintet and The Johnny Scott Trio. The former consisted of himself on flute, Duncan Lamont(saxophone), David Snell (harp), Barry Morgan (drums) and Arthur Watts (bass).
