Movie Soundtracks .....my particular interest.

My favorite musical is West Side Story. That aside, let me recommend John Barry (Out of Africa, and the one with Christopher Reeve...forgot it temporarily...Somewhere out of Time?) John Williams (Empire of the Sun), Hans Zimmer (The Thin Red Line), anything by Ennnio Morricone (especially Cinema Paradiso), and a host of others too numerous too mention.

Hi Terrence!
Hans Zimmer is awesome. You know where you can find great music? The soundtracks they play on some of the documentary specials they play on the History channel and such. I've also heard some great backtracks on the Travel Channel.

Michelle, I love the soundtracks on the History Channel and Travel channel as well.

My all time favorite soundtrack composer is James Horner who did Braveheart and Titanic. He also did Legends of the Fall, Apollo 13 and some others. Really beautiful!

I'm also into music played on commercials. I loved the music from the Geico commercial with the caveman walking in the airport.

Hello Michelle and Joanj,

Ha, ha !! I love the music on the Geico commercial when he is at the airport too. No words are said. Classic !! I just found out the other day that the firm which won the Geico account is a small place in Virginia......the Madison Ave. ad execs were laughing at them when they made their pitch...who is laughing now?

I like James Horner too. Braveheart is one of my favorites. He also did Forest Gump.....which is fantastic. Hans Zimmer also did Gladiator....really, really good.

I always thought that music on the Geico commercial sounded like 70s porn music.

Lisa - you do have a point.

Terrence - I love that a small firm got the account. That is classic.

Does anyone else have any favorite soundtracks? I am a movie buff and I would love to hear from anyone who has a favorite film composer. Film is what got me into Classical music because so many inspirational pieces used in movies led me to the original artist. And when I now listen to the Classic piece, I remember a certain scene or movie. It just adds to my enjoyment of the music. I know this is a backwards way of enjoying the Classics, but "hey" ...whatever works right? Music is so universal and as long as you enjoy it for whatever reason, it will live on.

Terrence - you are so right! I mean, music is a language as far as I'm concerned. It's the one thing that can heal, can tear down walls, I could go on and on, but yes, I agree.

Star Wars of course was my first big soundtrack. I was a senior in high school when the movie came out. JUST TOLD MY AGE.

Ummm . . . it's late, so I'm going to have to think some more on this. You know, of course, I love a lot of Pop soundtracks, "Pretty in Pink", Coyote Ugly, .....

Okay, I'm have to sleep and think and come back!

OK - so here's one that's so not classical, but I played the heck out of it when I was in high school - "Top Gun"! "playin' with the Boys" and "Take My Breath Away", I could probably still cing those from heart, LOL!

(BTW, forgive the typos, cut my finger making dinner tonight, and the stupid bandaid keeps hitting 2 keys at once. I'm getting tired of backspacing. :/)
