This topic may interest a grand total of one person – but I thought to create a thread for it regardless. What are your favorite movie background scores? I’m not talking about soundtracks in general which contain popular songs, but music either specifically written for the movie or popularized because of it. A great background score can often set the proper “mood” for the film. Some of my favorite scores are from dramas that enjoy a leisurely pace and thus rely heavily on the background score to fill in the gaps in dialogue. I love the haunting quality of those scores. Though at times I also enjoy the techo/fast pace variety that accompanies action scenes. Be forewarned that most of them are quite long, but if you have the patience to listen to them you will find yourself lost in some wonderful music. So without further ado, below are links to some of my favs. Would love to hear about yours.
