What's your favorite song from a movie and why?
I'm a fan of John Williams (Hedwig's Theme, Star Wars, Indiana Jones), but I'm becoming increasingly a fan of Ennio Morricone (A Fistful of Dollars, Sixty Seconds to What?, The Ecstasy of Gold ).
Currently, The Ecstasy of Gold is my favorite, due to the constantly building crescendos and good vocals.
I like too many to tell.
Okay let's try:
Once Upon A Time in the West, all the Star Wars, Harry Potter (everything by John Williams), Battlestar Galactica (original TV-Series), Willow, any film score by Ennio Morricone, Maurice Jarre, Vladimir Cosma (french comedies), Star Trek, Basil Polidopouris (Conan the Barbarian), music score from the Looney Tunes, Mission Impossible (original TV-Series), Lost in Space (original TV-Series), Soundtracks made by John Carpenter, and some composers from old movies as well.
That's it for now.
85% of my music collection is composed of film scores and soundtracks so...
Nothing can compare to smash mouth's track on the movie Shrek. That song pretty much sums up my childhood.
John Will all the way. You just can't beat him.
The gladiator soundtracks... They are like classical and stuff but really awesome
Sting - Shape Of My Heart (Leon, 1994)
The music from various Disney movies, such as Hubchback of Notre Dame, by Alan Menken
Also in addition to the gladiator theme I also like braveheart and Hedwig's theme... :3
the music for jaws.
This is apparently a true story:
After "bruce" the mechanical shark broke down for the tenth time, spielberg walked into john williams office and said "Okay, we don't have a shark. What have you got?" John Williams walked over to his piano and went "dur dum. dur dum. dumdumdumdumdumdumdumdum...."
I've already mentioned that 85 % of my collection is made of soundtracks and film scores. I used to listen to Once Upon a Time in the West before bed time and Star Wars especially, I went nuts when I first heard the music in the cinema, I listened to it so much that I could tell which part of the movie they were at just by listening to it. I have so many compilations as well.
My all time favorite though was Star Tracks on vinyl. It had the themes from Battlestar Galactica, Alien, Superman, the Black Hole, Meteor, Star Trek, Star Wars, and a few more.
I digitized it because it started to sound like eggs in a frying pan. I removed 90% of the scratches, pops, and clicks and it still sound great!
I'd like to make a new compilation with some music from the Basic Instinct and the Sixth Sense soundtracks, I just haven't found another one that would go well with them.
I must have made 250 compilations since I converted to CD recording.
I made probably 500 on audio tape, a technology I haven't used since the CD.
