I never knew there was more than 1 Lawrence of Arabia score!

Any Morricone (Dollars trilogy, The Mission, Once upon a time in The West) - The Empire Strikes back - the Eponymous Imperial march - stirring stuff, Blade Runner

As for Compilation Soundtracks - Conan the Barbarian, Kill Bill Vol 1, Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, all worth a mention

It all depends on the type of films you like. Personally the best are the epics, BenHur, King og Kings, Ten Commendments, Elcid, Lawrence of Arabia

For Me,
Raiders of the Lost Ark - the Well of the Souls and Raiders March are phenomenal.
CE3K -an incredibly innovative score.
Star Wars Trilogy -some of those themes are absolute perfection all wrapped up in heroic fifths.
Bladerunner -even if some of Vangelis' themes were off of previous albums.
And I have a very soft spot for The Reivers.

Adding to my contribution of the 22nd June: How about the trcks by Trevor Jone like the last of the Mohicnas (especially the theme) Cliff hanger...... Star wars tracks are also beautiful.

If you are a film fan then all tracks are good to your. One here cannot forget the Gladiator tracks especially Shlaom which is used as a tracks in many adverts.

Anyway I like all soundtracks and this dicussion could possibly go on for ever since new films (and their soudtracks) are bien issued continously.

Keep the discusion going

There is only one score for Lawrence of Arabia and that is by Maurice Jarr.

I wouldn't disagree with Lawrence of Arabia, but my favourite has to be Local Hero.

- MONARCH OF THE GLEN ( The TV series);

- FRIED GREEN TOMATOES (I went on to buy CDs by some artists on that compilation).

- McLeod's Daughter ( Aussie series). Not of the same caliber as the above 2, though.

Oh!Susanna says:

- HIMALAYA (by Bruno Coulais. Makes you travel far away).

- SMOKE SIGNALS ( Double-CD soundtrack to the cult Native American film. The film is SO great too! Road trip, tells of a young American Indian who has to take a journey away from his reservation to collect his father's ashes in Arizona, and comes to forgive him at last after his death. A classic, plus moving & hilarious at the same time).

Fight Club by The Dust Brothers
For compliation style Danny Boyle and Quentin Tarantino are hard to beat: Trainspotting, The Beach, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs

maybealready mentioned but my 2 favourite are the Ry Cooder Paris Texas one, and the Hot Spot (average movie) but music inc miles davis, john lee hooker and taj mahal together.....also Performance has a strange eclectic mix of tracks...

I am getting on so many would not agree, but for me it was from The Big Chill.

I'm not a big fan of the films (or the books) but I think LOTR is a magnificent piece of work, particularly Fellowship. Great choice of vocalists (Liz Frazer, Annie Lennox etc.) They also stand on their own in isolation from the films, which is where a lot of soundtracks fall down.

Any of the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks are great. Get Carter is pretty enjoyable too and I'm a sucker for Bond soundtracks.

You're all forgetting the spine tingling music that is the Jurassic Park theme tune.

Listening again to Hans Zimmer's soundtrack I find I like The Thin Red Line better that any of Pirates, Batman or even Inception...

Anyway, I would vote for Krull by James Horner, or Conan the Barbarian by Basil Poledouris. Others also, but these 2 above.

What no Jerry Goldsmith, there are only a handful of greats J. Barry, E. Morricone, J. Williams, J. Horner and the daddy at the moment H. Zimmer, a soundtrack album with a few covers or old originals does not make a great soundtrack just a lazy one.

- If you like period drama films, The Duchess and Marie Antoinette (for modern period drama) are good.
-Blow soundtrack is among my favourites, as its got a variety of music styles.
-For rock n roll I love Hairspray!
-For modern day music, its got to be the twilight soundtrack and blue valentine ("you and me" song by Penny and the Quarters is addictive!).

The most haunting, beautiful and original music ever composed for film is Ennio Morricone's score for "Once Upon a Time in the West"
