Favorite Film Soundtracks

A Listmania! list by Nick Wagner "MovieManiacX" (Maryland)
The list author says: "Music plays a vital part in filmmaking. A great film score can enhance a film in a variety of ways, such as adding tension or excitement, reinforcing themes and motifs, defining certain characters and creating memorable montages. There are many iconic film scores, some of which are instantly recognizable (try humming the Jaws theme in front of anybody) while others are more obscure but just as amazing.

These are some of my personal favorite film scores that blew me away.

MORE TO COME..."
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Expanded)
1.  The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Expanded) by Ennio Morricone
The list author says:
  "Ennio Morricone's legendary score. While all the films in the Dollars Trilogy have superb scores, TGTBATU takes the cake. The title track has been used more times than I can remember, while "The Ecstasy of Gold" is absolutely amazing."
$8.19   Used & New from: $3.65
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (86 customer reviews)

Tron Legacy
2.  Tron Legacy by Daft Punk
The list author says:
  "One of the best scores in recent memory. Daft Punk capture the spirit of the original 1982 score, while infusing it with their own trademark style. The result is remarkable and should not be missed."
$8.89   Used & New from: $2.76
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (403 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Rocky Balboa: The Best Of Rocky
3.  Rocky Balboa: The Best Of Rocky by Various artists
The list author says:
  "Bill Conti's "Gonna Fly Now" is the underdog's theme that pumps you up for anything. The rest of the series features some great music as well."

Goodfellas: Music From The Motion Picture
4.  Goodfellas: Music From The Motion Picture by Various Artists

The Thing: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
5.  The Thing: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Ennio Morricone
The list author says:
  "While Morricone is best known for scoring Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns, this score for legendary horror director John Carpenter is bleak and depressing, which suits the film perfectly."
Used & New from: $39.00

Indiana Jones: The Soundtracks Collection
6.  Indiana Jones: The Soundtracks Collection by John Williams

The Music of Star Wars: 30th Anniversary
7.  The Music of Star Wars: 30th Anniversary by John Williams
The list author says:
  "Probably one of the most epic scores in existence. John Williams is at his best when composing for Spielberg and Lucas. Even with the retarded prequels, this is one of the greatest scores ever composed. I still get goosebumps when I hear it."
$25.39   Used & New from: $21.88

Back To The Future: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack

Halloween: 20th Anniversary Edition - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
9.  Halloween: 20th Anniversary Edition - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Carpenter
The list author says:
  "A minimalistic but terrifying score. Carpenter's film would not be the same without it."
$89.98   Used & New from: $31.49
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring (The Complete Recordings)
10.  The Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring (The Complete Recordings) by Howard Shore
The list author says:
  "Howard Shore created an incredible score for all three films in this excellent trilogy. I know I keep using this word, but the score is nothing short of epic."
Used & New from: $295.00

The Batman Theme
13.  The Batman Theme by Batman: Original Motion Picture Score/Danny Elfman

Theme from "Jurassic Park"
14.  Theme from "Jurassic Park" by John Williams
The list author says:
  "As you can probably tell by now, I'm a huge John Williams fan and this is one of his best. I'm a tad biased because Jurassic Park is one of my Top 5 films, but the score is tremendously epic and suits the wonder & awe of the film perfectly."

Your Highness
15.  Your Highness by Steve Jablonsky
The list author says:
  "I've been digging Steve Jablonsky since his amazing score for Transformers, and this one continues his killer score-streak. It perfectly homages the sword & fantasy epics of the 80's and has moments of brilliance that complement the film while also allowing it to stand alone as just pure, unabashed aural awesomeness!"
$17.17   Used & New from: $2.24

Dredd: Original Film Soundtrack
16.  Dredd: Original Film Soundtrack by Paul Leonard-Morgan
The list author says:
  "A brutal electronic score that goes perfectly with the film, intensifying the action and meshing well with the film's futuristic tone. Great job!"
