    Default Movie Scores/Soundtracks Thread

    I don't recall ever seeing a thread on here about movie scores. I listen to a lot of instrumental music so movie scores are right up my alley. I've gotten into a lot of recent movie scores and can never really pick on older movies to look up for their scores if I don't really remember them.

    The idea for this thread is to post links to music scores or soundtracks you really enjoy, and for discussion about what makes them so good. I think it could be a great way to develop a sort of collection of great movie music for everyone to access.

    I'll start off with a few of my favourites from the past few years.

    Her composed by Arcade Fire (playlist)

    The Double soundtrack composed by Andrew Hewitt (playlist)

    The Imitation Game composed by Alexandre Desplat


    Philomena by Alexandre Desplat


    American Hustle Soundtrack ft. Danny Elfman, ELO, Elton John, America, Duke Ellington, Tom Jones and Wings

    I agree, great idea for a new thread!

    I cannot stop listening to this one since I saw the movie last month.
    I always liked the old Goblin/Tangerine Dream/John Carpenter style soundtracks. This one follows (ha!) that tradition well, without feeling cliched.

    Good stuff guys. I like the Gone Girl score, but much like Grand Budapest Hotel it fits the film absolutely perfectly, though it just isn't quite the same when listening to it by itself.

    I haven't even added any Hans Zimmer yet, who is probably my favourite Hollywood composer.

    I'll probably add a directory organized by composer/various to the original post so the links can easily be found. I'll use this thread all the time to find music. So often when I'm thinking of music to listen to, I stare that that search bar on YouTube and draw an absolutely blank when it comes to new stuff, meaning I've basically listened to the same stuff over and over again.

    Too bad we can't embed playlists, but if we're talking scary soundtracks, of recent memory Under the Skin has to be up there:

    Under The Skin was a movie I really wanted to like, but I just couldn't. A lot of people loved it enough I think I'll give it another shot eventually. I watched Upstream Colour the next day and enjoyed that film a lot more.

    It's Hans Zimmer time! I love Zimmer because of his minimalistic approach.

    Batman Begins composed by Hans Zimmer


    The Dark Knight composed by Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard


    The Dark Knight Rises composed by Hans Zimmer (my favourite of the trilogy)


    The Last Samurai composed by Hans Zimmer (When I realised how awesome he was)


    Interstellar

    Type 'video' in square brackets, on both sides of the link with the '/' in the second one. Take the 's' out of the 'https' in the link. The site is screwing depending on your browser, though. I couldn't post video links in IE, but can in Chrome, while in Chrome I can' use 'ctrl+b' to make text bold (the tags also show up in the text box when I quote someone) like I could with IE.

    No one can beat Goblin for the best movies scores. Suspiria is the pinnacle of mixing visual and audio to create an unnerving, nay, terrifying, atmosphere.

    The soundtrack from The Mystery of Rampo is extraordinarily beautiful. Here's the only clip I could find of just some music. This is by no means the best piece from the movie. This is one of my all-time favorite movies; it's just a bonus that the soundtrack is so pretty.



    Also, for tremendous scores, you have to have The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in there. Here's a clip representing the best segment; it's not from the movie itself, but you'll recognize it.



    Here's THREE clips from a movie I didn't like all that much (Paprika) but thought the music was intriguing.







    I also LOVE the soundtrack from Spirited Away. I could listen to the end credits song over and over. The below clip is the closest I could come to the actual movie soundtrack. Almost everything is a cover version "because otherwise it would be taken down due to copyright claims, like other songs from Ghibli movies, the original Japanese versions tend to get taken down faster than you can find them unfortunately."
