James Horner (who did Titanic) also created memorable and haunting work with the Braveheart theme:



And for a great, epic original song that should be in a film, but isn't, is Therion with Siren of the Woods. Absolutely beautiful, really worth listening to the whole song:

I don't know how, but I somehow forgot to mention my favourite film. It's my favourite film for all the reasons I could list, including soundtrack.
If you haven't seen the film, I won't spoil it for you but just listening to the soundtrack will bring a tear to your eye as it encapsulates the movie's beauty and harrowing, tragic storyline. I don't often dub things a masterpiece but I have no hesitation using that word to describe what I think of the film.
Music by Byeong-Woo Lee


The idea (and reality) of a remake causes my blood to boil though. To me that's like trying to improve the Mona Lisa by drawing a cartoon moustache and devil horns with crayons, or adding M-shaped seagulls to Turner's The Fighting Téméraire. Sacrilege. Grrrrrrrrrr mad.gif

I just want to resurrect this thread because I have a new favourite. I present you...
..Michael Giacchino

In particular, I watched one heck of a good film called "Up". Perhaps one of the best animated films I seen and the soundtrack is superb!
For anyone that's seen it, this is the score played over that bit in the film where.. well, you know. Feel free to shed a tear (I did)


And another of Giacchino's from another animated film called "Ratatouille"


..and the theme as sung by Camille

Oh boy, don't get me started on BTTF.. I absolutely love the trilogy.
Check out this version of the theme tune played on an electone. You're sure to exclaim "Great Scott!"



and just because it's so awesome, here's another electone interpretation of a great film score:

The Top Gun theme! It's legendary among my friends smile.gif

One of my favourite themes of all time is the one used for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Been used in different variations for the radio show, the movie etc. but always based on The Eagles - Journey of the Sorcerer. Do yourself a favour and listen through this masterpiece!




EDIT:
Oh and I didn't see no one had posted these:
