There're a few that come straight to my head.

The the opening scene to Blade Runner is just mesmerising. That score is, in my opinion, Vangelis' best work. Just hauntingly beautiful synth pads.

There's two pieces from The Deer Hunter that really struck a chord with me too; Cavatina and Chopin Nocturne No. 6. The scene in which Paul starts playing the piano in the bar, and that striking yet sombre realisation suddenly sinks in that their lives are all about to be changed forever, and likely not for the best.

The main theme from Escape from New York written by none other than John Carpenter himself is also a personal favourite.

Perhaps my favourite piece of music from a film score comes at the end of For a Few Dollars More. Ennio Morricone has already been mentioned here a few times and for good reason, but this particular piece really stuck with me; the culmination of Colonels showdown with El Indio, and then Clint's super badass (for lack of a better word) entrance was perfect. I could name any of Ennio Morricone's music though, it's all superb.

Edit to add;

And if we're talking about specific songs, as in written lyrical tracks, I'd have to include Weary Kind from the movie Crazy Hearts. Good movie, but there's something about Jeff Bridges voice that I just dig. It has a rough more weary Kristofferson feel to it.

I fell in love with this one, so long ago, and hearing it now, am still in awe of it.. I have no idea why but it grips me completely... powerful and sad...

Last of the Mohicans


and now, on the opposite spectrum, this one, from an iconic Aussie movie that went so under the radar for obvious reasons... but it is haunting...

Romper Stomper.

When I watch the movie certain scenes bring tears to my eyes - love, hope, futility, underpinned by a powerful soundtrack

Easy Rider is such a great film! The pacing, soundtrack, actors, cinematography and screenplay are outstanding.

LOVE Nicholson's character, but Hopper sure did a great job (Fonda too, was the perfect heartthrob hippie
).
