    A shout out to John Barry, may he RIP.

    John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, James Horner (the stuff before Xerox was his middle name), Howard Shore, Michael Giacchino, Bear McCreary, Ron Jones, Walter Murphy. Actually I think I can put Bear at the top of that list. He's the best one going at the moment.

    It's easier to list the names because the scores would be too many. My CD collection is mostly film scores.

    Well if you want to kick it old-school, how about Bernard Herrmann?

    Or the man that John Williams owes more than a little to... Erich Korngold! Tell me this doesn't make you want to swash your buckle:

    Probably "Out of Africa" and "Life is Beautiful." I also love the theme song from "Somewhere in Time." It isn't one of my favorite movies, but my grandparents loved it so whenever I hear it, I think of them.

    Richard Thompson is hands down my all-time favorite guitarist, and the person I would most like to be able to sing like (at least SOMETIMES). I just wish he played ukulele too! No... wait.. that might be too depressing. Back when I played guitar a lot, I saw him do a solo acoustic gig and I didn't want to touch my guitar for a month!

    Ha! I just realized that this is my 2000th post! Sweet!

    I have the Howard Shore FULL soundtracks for the Peter
    Jackson 'Lord of The rings' trilogy of films,and find the
    music stands up on its own,if you have seen the film!
    He has seperate themes for each race and dramatic ones
    for the battles and so on.If you are familiar with the films,
    the ten hours+ of these discs instantly bring it back to you
    even if played as 'background music'.A fabulous piece of
    scoring!

    Yeah that's a must-get, as is the limited release 2009 Star Trek 2 disk set. And speaking of which, The Horner ST scores have also got rereleases with extra material.

    But to be fair to other composers, Howard Shore is not the only one to write in a thematic style. Most of them prefer it. I mean just watch Star Wars for an example of that.

    Edit - I posted this before the morning tea started to kick in. What it meant to sound like was "Isn't it cool how composers do this? Check out Star Wars for example! You can also find thematic writing still trying to cut through the fakestra and mood music of tv shows." Instead it sounds like "You're an idiot, every composer does this." - That's NOT what I was thinking.
