Michael Gore (born March 5, 1951) is an American composer. Gore is the younger brother of singer-songwriter Lesley Gore.


A 1969 graduate of the Dwight-Englewood School, Gore received the school's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2004.[1]

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.[2]

Gore wrote the music for the infamous Broadway flop Carrie: The Musical. Two of his songs, with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, were featured in the 2003 movie Camp.[3]

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 under his own name with the "Theme" from this film. The single for "Terms of Endearment" spent six weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 84 in April 1984.[4]
