"20th Century Fox Fanfare" is a composition written by Alfred Newman and the first track in Independence Day (Complete Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). It is played to accompany the 20th Century Fox logo during the opening of the movie studio's feature films.


The 20th Century Fox fanfare was composed in 1933 by Alfred Newman, a longtime head of Fox's music department from 1940 to the 1960s. In 1953, Newman re-composed the fanfare with "CinemaScope extension".
