I also liked the music for Erin Brokovich and American Beauty.

I agree about John Williams, too...anything he did...wow.

Back to the Future
The Mission

I like movie scores as well. They especially come in handy when you cut your home movies.

Danny Elfman scores are extremely cool (MIB, Spider Man, etc), but of course, Oingo Boingo was cool back in the day...as well as those by Marc Shaiman (i.e. City Slickers, The American President, Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, Misery, Sister Act, Ghosts of Mississippi...)

Easy.

Moulin Rouge and the music in it. Not original scores but well-rendered.
Chicago

Donnie Darko
Run Lola Run
07/13/2004 02:08:04 PM · #18
I'll take anything with Enya's music.

Lord of the Rings comes to mind.

Saw Colette's reply, and I have to concur:

Beaches as a second.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil ~ for those who like jazz.

He's much better known for Buena Vista Social Club but I really like the scores Ry Cooder does for movies like Southern Comfort, The Long Riders and Paris, Texas.

But my all time favorite movie music is Francis Lai's score for the `60's classic romantic drama A Man and A Woman.
