John Williams absolutely the most expansive uplifting music in movies.


I happen to like your post of OUT OF AFRICA, John Barry. My favorite Barry score is DANCES WITH WOLVES. Absolute magic. He composed a lot of James Bond scores, too. I haven't gone through this entire thread page by page yet, so my apologies if you already posted/mentioned that, and Dances With Wolves. They released an expanded Dances score a few years ago that had additional music, and that is great too. The original and expanded cues for "Buffalo Hunt" are just fantastic.

Yes, he's fantastic. I like it even better that he expanded into the horror genre for the early-80s John Carpenter HORROR MASTERPIECE... "THE THING." This Lovecraftian-flavored smorgassboard of great storytelling was propelled into instant classic with Morricone's iconic themes. I've had the score since the late 80s (the original is a collector's item now, though you can get a very good imitation that was released earlier this year that sounds near identical to the original). And, his music goes beyond the famous theme you'll hear below. The rest of the score of PERFECT accompaniment for any of H.P. Lovecraft's short stories/novellas (The Call of C'thulu, The Mountains of Madness, etc.).

Some other sterling horror soundtrack/score favorites are:
ALIEN
ALIENS
NIGHTBREED
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART 4 (by Craig Safan)
HELLRAISER (any)
THE HAUNTED (or maybe just HAUNTED) by Jerry Goldsmith
PROPHECY
BRAHM STOKER'S DRACULA (1992)

And how dare I forget the Henry Mancini classic: LIFEFORCE!!!!

Thanks, as do you!! And, Back to the Future... All I can say is that Alan Silvestri (also known for THE ABYSS and THE AVENGERS) is a weaver of fun, adventure and classically romantic action scores. Back to the Future is simply amazingly fantastic.

How about Toto's DUNE score? I didn't think they could pull it off. I was in high school when the score came out, and at first, I must reluctantly admit, I didn't like it. I was not anything like CONAN THE BARBARIAN, CONAN THE DESTROYER, STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, RAMBO II, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, STAR TREK 2, or STAR TREK 3 (these audacious scores were the extent of my collection at the time).

DUNE was so... different. It was moody, pondering and (as I eventually discover) passionately deep. After having it for about a year, something clicked in me, and I discovered how magical it really was, and is now one of my all time favorites. There is so much emotion in the score. Since, they've released an expanded version of it, which has some mastering flaws, but is absolutely wonderful for finally making so many missing cues available.
Highlights, for me, for Toto's DUNE score are:

Prelude to Take My Hand: www.youtube.com...
The Prophecy Theme: www.youtube.com...
Take My Hand: www.youtube.com...
Dune (Desert Theme): www.youtube.com...

As this happened, I became perceptive to the magic of SPACECAMP and (another lost treasure) YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES. I made a dub-cassette tape of these three soundtracks, and to this day, it is my all-time favorite combination soundtrack mix.

YOUNG SHERLCOK HOLMES end credits: I4ByIKJbN90
by Bruce Broughton (also known for LOST IN SPACE --90s movie) And, BTW, a young "Johnny" Williams was the composer to the original themes (two themes) for the LOST IN SPACE television series. I caught onto this when I heard the music to JURASSIC PARK for the first time, which has two themes that were so similar to the original LOST IN SPACE themes that I looked into it and discovered that they were all the work of, indeed, John Williams!

ADDED: Yes, Pirates! For me, especially AT WORLD'S END. Zimmer really hit the spot there. I first loved Zimmer's BACKDRAFT, then THE THIN RED LINE (as someone already posted on this thread, Journey to the Line). Of course, also posted, his DAVINCI CODE films and INCEPTION themes. My disappointment with him is that there is a lot of "quiet space" and then highlights. If he would only include concert versions of his themes included with his soundtracks/scores, then I think he would please everyone. It was a lot easier to edit and splice music with a cassette player (back in the day) than it is now for me to try to use software. I'll have to get up to speed so I can splice his best moments into a single "concert-styled" piece. But, in the end, that is a small, very minor complaint. The guy is a grand musical talent and I really enjoy his music.

Ennio Morrecone's work on Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy (as well as 'A Fistful of Dynamite).

Clint Mansel's score for Solaris and Drive.

Just about everything that David Lynch uses.

Highlander (guilty pleasure)

Daft Punk's work on Tron Legacy.

The Matrix trilogy.

Everything John Carpenter has made for his own movies (particular Assault on Precinct 13, Escape From New York and They Live.)

EDIT: Hans Zimmer has lately transformed into a very interesting composer with his work on The Dark Knight and Sherlock Holmes.

Personally i feel the rest of the score hasn't dated well, but The Prophecy Theme is a fantastic, timeless piece of music.

First of all, the Tune from the German series Tatort (translated = crime scene)
It might be a series but the episodes are stand alone movies and some of them were shown in theaters too.
If you love old jazzy soul you gotta listen to this:

Composed by Klaus Doldinger who also composed the music for "Das Boot".

And of course the Bullett Soundtrack, especially the music at the start of the famous chase scene!

Composed by Lalo Shifrin.

BTW, the engines roaring during the chase is also music for my ears...

Difficult, if not impossible to name only one, as film scores are so closely tied to the scenes they're used in:

God Moving Over The Face Of The Water, Heat (Moby)

Promontary, The Last Of The Mohicans (Trevor Jones / Edelman)

Like A Dog Chasing Cars, The Dark Knight (Hans Zimmer)

Just Like You Imagined, 300* (NIИ)

Eyes Of Truth, The Matrix** (Enigma)

*used in trailer
*used in trailer and DVD menu

While not my favorite "My heart will go on" by Celine Dion deserve special mention. I doubt there is anyone that hears that song and does not think of the movie.

For pure sound tracks, I am a fan of the original Star wars movies, again, very few people will hear those and not think of Star Wars.

For favorite song in a movie, probably "MachineHead" by Bush from the movie Fear.

When I was a kid I could sing along with "A Goofy Movie" for days.

I like classical stuff but I my favourite movies have regular music in them.

Like for example.. Pick of Destiny.. it made me like Tenacious D and I was never a fan before it came out. In fact, quite the opposite.
