    Yeah, I would say that Star Wars would be the quintessential example. It pretty much revived the entire art of leitmotif in movie scores--the thematic style, where different characters, settings, and things have their own themes. Old-school guys like Korngold used to do it a lot, but I believe it fell out of favor until Star Wars came along.

    And, of course, Korngold, Williams, et al, all got the idea from Richard Wagner. And maybe a bit from Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. :-)

    What Dreams May Come. Theme song is Beside You, by Michael Kamen of the New York Rock & Roll Ensemble (in the 70s). Beautiful, just beautiful song.

    Some really great soundtracks suggested. I want to add my all-time favorite soundtrack-from the movie Maurice. The music in this soundtrack is so melodic and full of emotion.
    . . . and justice for all.

    "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is my number one. Here's a nice version of the theme...

    Loving this thread!
    My all time favorites are:
    The Piano (duh)
    The Mission
    El Sectreto de Sus Ojos (must see!)
    Donny Darko (love the Tears for Fears song as they get out of the school bus and the everyday school life gets shown)
    Car Wash
    Apocalypse Now
    Four Brothers (starts with 'trouble Man' by Marvin Gaye, immediately sets the tone of the movie)
    The live Aquatic

    Favorite Movie Score ? I don't know if I have a favorite but I'm a big fan of old Horror Movies. The movie "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi has been rereleased with a new soundtack. Written by Philip Glass and played by the Kronos Quartet. It's all strings and really compliments the movie. I think even Bela would approve.
