De Vorzon composed the soundtracks to many 1970s and 1980s films, and one of the tunes, "Cotton's Theme" (from Bless the Beasts and Children) was rescored by Perry Botkin Jr. and retitled "Nadia's Theme" for the television soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

"Nadia's Theme" hit #8 on the US Top 40 in 1976 and the album from which it was taken shot to #42 on the Billboard 200; in 1977, it won a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Arrangement. De Vorzon also composed the tune "It's Christmas Time in San Francisco". De Vorzon is perhaps best known for his participation in creating soundtrack for the cult film, "The Warriors" (1979), directed by Walter Hill. After The Warriors, De Vorzon composed several more soundtracks for Private Benjamin (1980), The Comeback Kid (1980), Xanadu (1980), Simon & Simon (1981), Looker (1981), Mr. Mom (1983), V: The Final Battle (1984), Mischief (1985), Stick (1985) and Night of the Creeps (1986).

De Vorzon's last film soundtrack was The Exorcist (1990); he has been inactive in the music industry ever since. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
