Alright, you can stay.

I would go for the Fire Walk With Me soundtrack, though. I don't listen to many soundtracks but FWWM is on constant rotation on my iPhone.

Whilst I love Raiders, I frigging love the Crusaders theme.



Epic, epic theme.



Dinner Jackets is a great track, got the JB theme running as the undercurrent.



I could have chosen any of the trilogy to be honest. I love listening to this whilst I'm driving.



I couldn't choose between the three, so I opted for all of the soundtrack from LotR. Adore all the separate themes for the differing countries/races. Just phenomenal.

So very many soundtracks I love, a fair few mentioned so far. I could do a long lost but I'll just go straight to my all-time favourite and that's The Lord Of The Rings.



Much like Ref I couldn't choose just one. The entire 10 hours is just magnificent and musical perfection.

My favourites are;

BLADE RUNNER: Vangelis' soothing synth score, with a variety of other sounds, arabic, oriental makes it one of the greatest soundtracks in my opinion. Just the opening music for the Hades Landscape makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I also love...

THE MISSION: I love the score for this masterpiece, Morricone is one the masters of film scores, I love his work on The Spaghetti Westerns trilogy, as well as...

CINEMA PARADISO: One of Morricone's best scores. Such a moving, elegaic score. Gets me evertime.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST; Majestic, as well as...

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA; Moving, beautiful.....there's so many great scores he has done, i'm sure i've forgotten a few, oh yeah, THE UNTOUCHABLES and CARLITO'S WAY are another two favourites.

THE DEER HUNTER: One of my favourite film scores, for a moving, tragic film about friendship and the impact of the Vietnam war.

DANCES WITH WOLVES; the late John Barry's beautiful, epic score - this masterpiece is one of the best film scores I have heard. I watched the film recently again, and the music moved me close to tears.....I love the touching music of White Socks.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA: Maurice Jarre....my god. One of the greatest scores composed ever for celluloid bar none. Breath-taking...exhillirating...moving.....majestic.....poignant.....poetic........i'm running out of superlatives fast!

ALIEN: Jerry's score made Ridley's classic sci-fi horror what it is today. One of the best.

STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK: my god! As a young boy hearing the score for this, one of my favourite films of all time - I was spellbound! As an adult now, hearing it again it still never ceases to amaze me. Watch the scene of Yoda lifting the X-Wing out of the swamp, coupled with the beautiful score by John Williams - and tell me you didn't get the hair on the back of your neck standing up! If it didn't, then you need to see a doctor straightaway!

RAGING BULL: Pietro Mascagni's powerful music is what makes this picture one of the best Scorsese films ever. Absolutely magical.

TAXI DRIVER: ah, what can I say!

And let's not forget, one of the greaest scores in a Scorsese film

THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST!

So these are just a few of my favourite film scores. There's so many that I cannot include them all, scores far and wide such as APOCALYPSE NOW, THE GODFATHER, THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, JAWS, INDIANA JONES.....

Mulholland Drive soundtrack is terrifying, its very awesome.
The Streetfighter has a badass soundtrack.
To Kill a Mockingbird has a great soundtrack
I know it's almost a cliche now but The Good, The Bad and The Ugly soundtrack is killer.
I really love Zimmer's marimba soundtrack for True Romance but I think that's mainly because it really puts me in the mood for the movie.

EVERYTHING by Thomas Newman. He creates the most beautiful sounds I have ever heard. 'Define Dancing' from Wall-E and 'Arose' from American Beauty are my favourites. Plus pretty much all of Finding Nemo.

Of course anything Nina Rota has done and as well as the Orgazmo soundtrack. The most influential soundtrack to me other than musicals would have to have been Forrest Gump. Every track on that double CD was perfectly picked to symbolize the generations. Brilliant. Another take from Tom Hanks is one in That Thing You Do!

I only got this a couple of days ago, but after several listens, I would highly recommend the Trance soundtrack. A bit of quality people. Well worth a tenner or so.
