    I love movie scores. Really, I listen to them on my spare time. Without them you sometimes lose the emotional honesty of the movie, or the dramatic intensity. What is your favorite? And what are your thoughts?

    I can see thousands of people putting Star Wars down already… but my personal pick would have to be the Lord of the Rings…

    I will always have a soft spot for the score to “Jurassic Park.” Both Speilberg and Williams won Oscars for the wrong film in 1993.

    Of the ones listed, that would be PSYCHO, of course. None of the others even come close. However, I prefer Bernard Hermann’s score for VERTIGO, which is probably the greatest movie score ever.

    Psycho still haunts me, when ever I hear it or watch the movie.

    My favorite music score is Edward Scissorhands.
    It’s just so beautiful, like the movie.

    Can’t lose by putting Vertigo down. Silly to list the best of anything (doesn’t really exist), but among recent films I’m very fond of Clint Eastwood’s score for Million Dollar Baby.My favorite score from last year was the score to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. 

    Ever since watching the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet when I was in the 9th grade, I’ve listened to this track around 50 times (Nino Rota).

    Douglas Sirk had some excellent scores as well (Imitation of Life is up there as a contender).

    “Psycho” from the list, but my favorite is “Edward Scissorhands”. Beautiful and haunting.

    The list in the first post is sad.

    Though I love Bernard Herrmann and Ennio Morricone’s work above all others, for me the great film score of all time (other than perhaps an original musical like The Band Wagon, It’s Always Fair Weather or Swing Time, which doesn’t seem to be what this thread is about) would be Sergei Prokofiev’s for Sergei Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible.

    It was a close call but the shrieking violins and the pounding opening theme music alone (and not to mention the small motifs throughout the movie) are enough for me to vote for PSYCHO. A true classic of a score by possibly the great film composer of all-time, Bernard Hermann

    I voted for “Jaws”. A masterpiece in every way and the one which most enhaced its movie. “The Godfather” should have been also on the list. And the score for “Requiem for a Dream” is my all time favorite.

    I remember hating its win when it beat out Wall.E, but I recently watched Slumdog Millionaire, and damn it’s score is near perfect for a film like that.
