Post Your Favorite Soundtracks

I don't know about the rest of you, but I spend A LOT of time looking for amazing new soundtracks. So I started thinking it would be great if we had a thread where we could constantly add those amazing soundtracks as we find them. Who knows, if there's enough interest maybe we can get it stickied.

We should have a system, though, to make things easier. So I suggest you list the movie, followed by the composer. If there are only one or two tracks on the album you like, then add those also.

I'll start things off with a few of my current favorites ...


A River Runs Through It - Mark Isham

Road To Perdition - Thomas Newman (The Farm, Rain Hammers, Road to Perdition & Dirty Money)

Band of Brothers - Michael Kamen (Main Titles, Requim, Winters on Subway, Austria, Headscarf)

The Holiday - Hans Zimmer

Becoming Jane - Adrian Johnston

Under The Tuscan Sun - Christophe Beck

Well, I was actually looking for soundtracks, not individual songs, but that's cool. At least someone posted, lol!

One of my favourite scores for a film was James Horner's work for Aliens

I used to listen to it on my tape player, in the dark. It caught the feeling of the film, the fear and the tension perfectly. A perfect example of music adding to the quality of the film

I do love the work of John Williams, specially on my favourite film Raiders.

Other scores I have liked:

Batman - Danny Elfman
Gladiator - Hanz Zimmer
Star Wars - John Williams
Band of Brothers - Michael Kamen

When it comes to films, I think that whether you have a score or a soundtrack depends entirely on the type of film it is, and also what you are trying to say with the film.

If we are talking strictly about scores and not necessarily for wedding work, here's a short list that I like, in rough alphabetical order:

Casino Royale
Chronicles of Narnia (1 & 2)
Courage Under Fire
The Crow
ET
Glory
Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix
The Incredibles
Independence Day
Indiana Jones (All 4 of them but especially ROTLA)
The Last Starfighter (cheesy but fun)
Lord of the Rings (all three)
Moulin Rouge
Ratatouille
Star Wars (all 6)
Stargate
Swing Kids
Saving Private Ryan
The Bourne Identity (and sequels)

And just about anything by Michael Giacchino, including his video game music. Some of his work for the World War II genre, from Secret Weapons Over Normandy in the old days to Medal of Honor: Airborne most recently he has an incredibly talent for musically portraying the emotion of a given scene. This isn't a conclusive list of the scores I have enjoyed, but just what's on my iPod right now. :)

They have some great sounds. Much better than a lot of the "stock" music out there. The thing about an actual soundtrack though is that you have a running theme through anywhere from 10-20 different tracks. It's much more cohesive than picking a bunch of random tracks from a place like smartsound.com.
