Biography

Gore, along with lyricist Dean Pitchford, won the Oscar in 1981 for best original song for "Fame" from the film of the same title. He also won the award that year for best original score.[1] Gore is the younger brother of late singer/songwriter Lesley Gore.

Gore wrote the music for the notorious Broadway flop Carrie - The Musical. Two of his songs, with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, were featured in the 2003 movie Camp.[2]

He also composed the theme and score for the 1983 hit film Terms of Endearment starring Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger, notching a hit on the Adult Contemporary chart (and briefly the pop charts) under his own name with the "Theme" from this film.
