What are your favorite themes from Motion Pictures?
« on: March 29, 2023, 06:10:47 PM »
We've all listened to hundreds, thousands, or more of music from movies.  If you had to narrow the list to 5 or 6, which would they be??  I was just listening to one of my favorites and thought I'd ask.  I took a look at an internet list and found all of mine but one on it.   I'll put mine up after a few others chime in... don't want to influence.

Interesting topic, but Iím kinda drawing a blank. Can think of lots of great movies, but not soundtracks right now. Itís been years since Iíve seen these movies, but maybe.2001 A Space Odyssey and Ben HurÖ

Just for the music, and not nostalgia for the movie:

Gabriel's Oboe from The Mission
Aria from La Wally-  Diva
Out of Africa Theme
Chinatown Theme
Exodus Theme
Last Tango in Paris

And then sooo many that bring visions from the movies.... Last of the Mohicans, Lawrence of Arabia, Schindler's List, 2001, The Godfather .............

Some of my favorites are the soundtracks from:
The Guns of Navarone
Robinhood, Prince of Thieves
Willow
Rango
Jumanji
The Neverending Story
The Forbidden Kingdom
The Fifth Element
Once Upon A Time in The West
The Sea Hawk
Charade
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Remo Williams The Adventure Begins
Flash Gordon
Highlander The Original Scores
LadyHawke
Dune

I can't fault S Clark's taste in movie music, Lawrence of Arabia,
2001 and Exodus are also in my collection.
