I have very few video game original scores (this might be off topic), Metal Gear Solid series is one of them. Harry Greggson-Williams composes action with his music.


I think this song is a lost James Bond theme song - Snake Eater from Metal Gear Solid 3 by Norihiko Hibino

I'm more into collecting film scores than movies. I totally agree with what Fellini912 said in his introductory post.

I love many scores & composers but the one Maestro that stands out (by far) is Ennio Morricone. And my most favorite score (from him and in general) is the one for Sergio Leone's GIŁ LA TESTA [aka DUCK, YOU SUCKER aka A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE] which also happens to be my most favorite movie (warts and all ...).

This is "Invenzione Per John" from GLT:

I can't believe I managed to omit this sublime score from my post. Another one that really sets the mood incredibly well. I couldn't, and don't, want to imagine the film any other way.

I have yet to try the score out, but the Glass score was actually one of the reasons I picked up La Belle et la Bete.

Favorite film score is from "The Professional". Eric Serra does a masterful job for that film.

Favorite Film Score composer, overall, is Bernard Herrmann, especially for his Science-Fiction scores.



I decided to not give a list of favorites, to honor the OP's subject for the thread, that being favorite film score, soundtrack or composer.

My reason for purchasing the movie was the same. The next film that I will buy for the same reason is Dracula on blu ray when it is released. Seeing the box set it said that it contains Phillip Glass' alternative soundtrack; the price is a bit steep.

Awesome recommendation. His The Good, the Bad and the Ugly film score sometimes overshadows his other spaghetti western film scores, for example the one you posted (which is equally as great).

I was surprised when I was looking into film composer for John Carpenter's The Thing and saw Morricone's name. For some reason I expected Goldsmith or Vangelis being the film composer of the score. The musical ambient landscape is amazing.

This morning I was listening to Kieslowski's musical half Zbigniew Preisner. His Requiem for a Friend Lacrimosa was used in Malick's Tree of Life. That soundtrack (more so than the score) was majestic, pack with great classical composers.


The soundtrack has not been released commercially, but here is a good website that lists all the music used in the film.

Great picks. When people talk about about film scores, usually no one mentions Wendy Carlos, which surprises me. I enjoyed her work on The Shining and Clockwork Orange.

I guess now is a great time to mention Tangerine Dream's classic electronic film score Sorcerer (remake of The Wages of Fear).

I feel that Franz Waxman work is always overshadowed by Bernard Herrmann. Waxman is one of my favorite composers; I love his Sunset Boulevard music score

Great recommendations so far, a good mix of popular and obscure scores and soundtracks.

I was glad to see Peace Orchestra mentioned, from the Animatrix soundtrack. I hope Peter Kruder releases a new album soon with original works (his first and last one as Peace Orchestra was in the 90s).


Another favorite score that I always go back to is Alberto Iglesias' Talk to Her. I think he is the spanish equivalent to Bernard Herrmann.

Duke Ellington's score Anatomy of a Murder is one of the greatest jazz scores ever.

John Williams without a doubt. Not sure I could pick one favorite score from him, though.

Recently, I have been listening to a podcast of film scores. I came across Clint Mansell's film score for The Fountain with Kronos Quartet and Mogwai. Fantastic score, minimalist chamber music.

Harold Budd's Avalon Sutra is the only other album that sounds similar.
