    Default Favorite movie scores?

    I've always been a fan of movie scores, and like to listen to them when I'm studying or relaxing. Here are some of my favorites. I'd love to hear what your favorites are, too!

    - Cold Mountain
    - I Capture the Castle
    - Last of the Mohicans
    - March of the Penguins
    - Nell
    - Out of Africa
    - Possession
    - Pride and Prejudice
    - A Room With a View
    - Somewhere in Time
    - The Straight Story
    - Whale Rider

    The one I find myself coming back to over and over is the soundtrack from Amélie. I think I might have liked the music even more than I liked the film (and I liked the film a lot!).

    I'l second Amelie and Pride and Prejudice.

    And I'll add The Hours, and just about anything from Ennio Morricone.

    Last of the Mohicans. Props to NatalieS for already mentioning it.

    Apollo 13 is pretty good, too, but LotM is my go-to score.

    after "up" came out, i listened to that michael giacchino score for a long, long time. great stuff.

    also love the score from "les choristes." great french film!

    any john williams will do: raiders, star wars, superman, et, saving pvt. ryan, etc., etc.

    hans zimmer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Zimmer), danny elfman (nightmare before Christmas & lots more--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Elfman).

    also really love the lord of the rings trilogy soundtrack by howard shore. bought the cd's off ebay not too long ago.

    I like a lot of the Ennio Morricone stuff. I have a CD of YoYo Ma playing his themes.

    Just remembered another one... the new Tron movie has a pretty brilliant soundtrack.

    And if you want to include soundtracks that are song collections more than outright "scores", then I'll add:

    Once
    Empire Records
    Saturday Night Fever

    Dang! I keep thinking of more good ones.

    Here's a bit of Angelo Badalamenti's score for Cousins. It's an underrated movie, and a vastly underrated score...
