Most people watching films often forget the importance of music within a film as it is considerd background music to fill in gaps within a film. But
there are some amazing composers/artists out there who contribute so much to a film. For me music within a film is just as important as the acting &
actual storyline and the music when played on its own without any actors speaking over it or explosions going off and such is beautiful!
So with that said I present to you some of my favourite tracks and composers from films
Geoff Zanelli - Morwenian Genocide (Outlander)
Daft Punk - Disc Wars (Tron Legacy)
Ludovico Einaudi - Dietro Casa (This is England)
Hans Zimmer - Journey to the Line (Thin Red Line)
Two Steps From Hell - Freedom Fighters (Star Trek) (From one of the trailers)
Enya - May it Be (Lord of the Rings: Two Towers)
Howard Shore - Gollums Song (Lord of the Rings: Two Towers)
Clint Mansell - Welcome to Lunar Industries (Moon)
John Williams - Main Theme (Schindler's List)
Steve Jablonsky - My Name is Lincoln (The Island)
So what's everyone elses favourite film scores and composers ? I'm hoping to find some gems from posters of composers & tracks I've not heard
Nothing Original but I'm gonna have to take a second and look some stuff up. Your post really got me thinking about how many awesome scores I hear in
film and forget to check up on or forget after hearing a regular song in the movie.
Holly crap coach Mcguirk. I love home movies I was just listening to the Cd that came in the collectors set. To bad this isn't a tv soundtrack thread
I would post a video for every song on that thing, Septopus, King Arthur & Robin Hodd,Franz Kafka, Timmy etc.....
Sorry this was off topic but Home Movies rules and its good to see it getting paid homage.

Music is terribly important in more than just movies.
In the mall the xmas tunes put a happy feeling in your jesus muscle and make you buy more chinese garbage.
Music truly manipulates, if only the good guys figured that out before the bad guys did.
Music can make you cry or be happy, not alot of people realize just how powerful it truly is.
S for the Requiem theme. Great movie just all around. I highly recommend the book if you have never read it. A little dated (its from the 70's) but
even more powerful and the ending is even a shred better and dare I say happier
Thought of putting that tune up but you beat me to it.
