    NOTE : Movie scores! Not Forrest Gump because there are songs by The Doors or Hendrix. Movie scores, gentlemen. In the aforementioned example, Alan Silvestri would be the composer of the score featuring the Feather Theme most people are familiar with.

    My very favorites are ;

    Thomas Newman - Shawshank Redemption



    Dave Grusin - The Firm



    Hans Zimmer - Crimson Tide



    Thomas Newman - Erin Brokovich



    James Newton Howard - Sixth Sense

    John Williams -- The Empire Strikes Back.

    While the Imperial March is the instant classic of this score, I think this is my favorite piece from it:



    What I love about Williams' scores, especially this one, is that he tells the story with music.

    I spent a good deal of time with that film last year while working on a paper about it. It really is a great score.

    Haven't heard it in forever and maybe I wouldn't even like it now, but I really liked the score to Rumblefish. It was done by Stewart Copeland.

    I thought Interstellar's soundtrack was pretty great.

    Morricone is awesome. Once Upon a time in the West already mentioned in this thread. Thought I'd add this one.

    @A-Bone Got School? I am impressed, but not surprised. Cheers!

    My distant kin, Nino Rota did some nice work on Godfather. Al Viola's mandolin work highlights everyone's memory of this score hence the depth is frequently overlooked.
