One particular piece comes to mind....it was used in "Platoon". It's about the Vietnam War and was made in 1986 by Oliver Stone starring Charlie Sheen. Anyway, throughout the movie was "Adagio for Strings" by Samuel Barber. It's beautiful, yet haunting and sad.

BellaHarmony...I hope your fingers are healing !!!

OMG! How did we miss those?

I was on the Academy Awards site when I was researching the "Scifi Symphony" article, and I noticed that up until 1961 there was a whole separate section for musicals' scores as opposed to drama or comedy. Then it switched to original score as opposed to adaptation (with about a 4-5 year switch back in the late 60's with the renewed popularity of musicals thanks to Barbara!) and back again to original/adaptation.

Just thought it was interesting.

Okay, so I love the soundtrack from the movie "Michael" with John Travolta.

I'm a big Hans Zimmer fan. There's this one piece on the True Romance soundtrack ("You're So Cool") that has to be one of the happiest songs of all time. smile

As far as complete soundtracks go, though, my favorite is from the movie Singles.

Wow, it's like going down memory lane. Singles - I haven't thought about that movie for a long time. I also like the track from "Blast from the Past".

Have you checked out Blade Runner by Vangelis? Another awesome soundtrack. It really helps if you know the movies because the music adds so much. I love compilations but I'm hooked to original scores. Nancy....I'll have to check out the True Romance score from Hans Zimmer. He is great.

I love Hans Zimmer. Now, tell me if I'm wrong, didn't he do the Miami Vice theme?

One of my favorite soundtracks is from the movie I Am Sam. I've never actually seen the film, but I picked up the CD and had to have it. Two words: Rufus Wainwright.

Chel, I think you are right about Mr Zimmer doing Miami Vice.

Danielle, nice suggestion. I'll have to check it out!

I don't know if anyone is a fan of the Coen Brothers. They did Blood Simple, Barton Fink, Fargo and a bunch of others. But Carter Burwell did the music for them and he is another favorite. Very atmospheric yet unassuming.
