    Here's another one- my mom became obsessed with the theme from "The Onedin Line" (a BBC show from the 1970s that aired on PBS in the U.S.) She bought the soundtrack and it seems to have originally come from a 1968 film called "Mayerling." Anyhow, the piece is called "Opening music from Spartacus Suite" or "Adagio from Spartacus" written by Aram Khachaturyan. I was reminded of it the other day when I heard a snippet of it in "Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs" which I was watching to try to get my great-nephew to go to sleep.

    I don't listen to soundtracks like I used to, and even then my collection was limited. So here are few favorites that I don't see mentioned from past years:

    "Fall" - Tron Legacy (The whole album is sublime, but this is five-stars in my iTunes library)


    "Hotel Ambush" - The Matrix (Tough call between this and Main Title, so I'll go with this mid-movie track.)


    "Tetsuo" - Akira (this is best watched in your 20's when your mind can still be blown by anime :) )


    "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (and I'm back in my 20's, watching movies on DVD on a student)


    "Comptine d'un autre été" - Amalie (As with Tron Legacy, the entire score is brilliant)


    "Possibility" - Pay it Forward

    And to break the rules with a final song...
    "Elephant Love Medley" - Moulin Rouge (Because if you don't love Big Trouble in Little China and Moulin Rouge, then we need to fix that. :D )

    The 2nd one, by Aram Khachaturian.
    Here's how it was used in the tv show:

    I wanted to bump this old thread to add something more recent than any of its posts:

    "What to Do When You've Wasted 15 Years of Your Life" from the film Juliet, Naked which came out last summer and hit its widest release (which still wasn't all that wide) around last Labor Day when I saw it. I just got the Blu-ray a couple weeks ago and bought the soundtrack today

    The soundtrack also has some vocal tracks by Ethan Hawke (who plays a onetime rock musician in the film), and by the nature of the movie, those tracks will get more attention. But this score cue is really understated and tender and beautiful.



    I'll also repeat what I said in the Roundup thread that Juliet, Naked is one of my favorite films of last year that I don't know anyone else who actually saw, and I'D highly recommend it for anyone who is interested. The title makes it sound like a porn movie but it's not; it refers to an acoustic ("naked") version of Ethan Hawke's character's album.

    I thought this thread was worth a bump to spotlight this amazing cue from Endgame:



    I've listened to this on YouTube a lot lately -- I'm waiting for the physical disc (out next Friday) to buy the score. Amazon's AutoRip feature would be mighty handy on this release, because then I could get the MP3s now since they're already out, but of course it's not included on this one. I know I want the physical disc, so as much as I'd like to have the score today, I don't see the point in purchasing the MP3s now and then paying for the disc next week.

    Anything by John Barry, like the main themes from The Last Valley, Zulu, and The Lion in Winter.

    I tend to like soundtracks that feature music from Danny Elfman, Giorgio Moroder or Jeff Lynn.

    But as for Orchestral music in film, I really appreciated the entire Lord of the Rings soundtrack. I loved how every race/group had their own variation and feel. I can't speak to how "good" it is compared to the masters like Williams and Horner but the LOTR music is so ingrained in my brain that if I happen to hear any of it, I instantly start thinking about the movies.

    It's not the best song to listen to by itself. But in movie, I loved The Prowler's Theme. Combined with the visuals, it creates a visceral feeling of danger and near panic. And then the sonic cue, the modified elephant trumpet, is used later in the movie to remind and alert that danger is near.

    First, my favorite cue from LotR:

    Howard Shore; "The Breaking of the Fellowship", from "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring":



    This one's been mentioned a couple of times but is worthy of an embed. My choice for the greatest film score cue of all time:

    John Williams; "Escape / Chase / Saying Goodbye"; from "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial":

    I love the compilation of songs that they used for the movie Baby Driver.
    I remember seeing my siamese fell asleep on her
    cat heated bed while listening to this soundtrack.

    This has quickly become my favorite track on the Toy Story 4 soundtrack:
