Don't take money,
Don't take fame,
Don't need a credit card to write your name
la la la, something, something...

~ that's the power of love... ~

- that was my interpretation of that song from Back to the future.

Anything by James Newton Howard, or Thomas Newman works for me too. American Beauty, meet joe black, road to perdition.

Howard Shore's music for the Lord of the Rings trilogy is epic music at its finest

It's called Mad World I think.
I also like those little bits of music here and there from Donnie Darko. Like when he first kisses Gretchen. And the Liquid Spear Waltz.

Who's PM5K? They didn't do any of the main tunes on The Matrix, that I have.
But there's good stuff in those films.

John Williams (Star Wars etc.), Howard Shore (LOTR), Don Davis (Matrixesses), Eric Serra (Goldeneye and Leon), Hans Zimmer (Gladiator) and David Arnold (Stargate, James Bond(?) all did great scores.

Nearly anything by John Williams, Vangelis, Hans Zimmer.

Top Gun I like as well, especially Through The Fire, Take My Breath Away and Dangerzone.

Oh, and the soundtrack to The Truman Show - in particular the credits.  smile

Let's see. Well I can't remeber it's name but it goes:
There are few who deny it
What I do I am the best
For my talents are renowned
Far and wide

When it come to surprise in the moonlit night
I excel without ever even trying

Okey so basically I love all the songs from "The Nightmare befrore Christmas" but this ones my fave.

Other stuff includes the soundtracks to LOTR:FOTR
Princess Mononoke (by Joe Hihashi), TEnchi Forever (by Saitou Tsuneyoshi)

@Faze : PM5K Is the abbreviated form of "Powerman 5000" and they play that really bassy, fast, techno-y song, i dont think it has a specific name, just "Matrix theme". Quite an out of character song actually.

The Imperial March from Star Wars is one of the best movie songs ever written.  Not only does it command respect like a march, it also is not too shy about its evil undertones.  Another Williams march, "The Raider's March", is of equally high definition.  Even if a person had never heard that piece before, he or she could feel that it was from an adventure movie.

Steering away from Williams we find Hans Zimmer.  His work on The Rock is proof that a good score can make a good movie great, and his work on Broken Arrow shows that a soundtrack can be great even if the film is not.

A couple other artists who deserve honorable mention here is whomever scored The Truman Show (particularly for "Father Kolbe's Preaching" ), whomever put together the soundtrack for Twister (the way the violins blend seamlessly into VanHalen's "Humans Being" is amazing), and Danny Elfman.  Elfman has a long repetoire of music that doesn't really sound strange, but sounds like it should sound wierd.

I may be wrong, but I always thought that line went "Don't need a credit card to ride this train." Anybody know for sure?

As has been stated before, Howard Shore's LOTR is great, John Williams is great (old John Williams anyway, he's been slipping recently), and Danny Elfman is great (his soundtrack to POTA was really cool, percussion-wise).

As far as "lesser-knowns," Alan Silvestri (Ghostbusters, The Mummy Returns), Jerry Goldmsith (Rudy, Hoosiers, Star Trek (TV), The Mummy), and Michael Kamen (X-Men) do good work. Whoever did Spirited Away did a great job. The soundtrack for Donnie Darko is good -- here I mean mostly the songs, although it had a good score as well.

Just about any track on a movie soundtrack with Paul Oakenfold's name on it is good (I especially like his "Braveheart" remix). Alf Clausen and Christopher Tyng both do excellent jobs in their respective TV series (I hope I don't have to point out which ones   smile).

I simply adore the soundtrack for Zoolander.   love

EDIT: Oh oh oh! The soundtrack for Signs, by James Newton Howard, is also excellent.

Indeed it is.  What that guy did with a simple, three-note progression is amazing.  To think M. Night was going to do the film without a soundtrack.

Yeah, and in adapting that simple three-note progression pay homage to both Psycho AND the Twilight Zone! In the title credits, anyway.

in terms of soundtracks:

-Freddy Vs. Jason (in my opinion, the best soundtrack ever, still waiting to see the film)

-Ginger snaps
-Matrix and Matrix Reloaded
-Snatch

Dear Rover,

While I completely agree with you, please spoiler-ize your post to avoid ruining this fantastic film for anyone who has not yet seen it (go watch it you bastards).

Also, the two other songs in that movie are awesome as well.

Love,

Yes, there is no theme from any other movie with as much impact as the Imperial March.

I found the lyrics on a site:

The Power Of Love - Huey Lewis and the News

The power of love is a curious thing;
Make a one man weep, make another man sing;
Change a hawk to a little white dove.
More than a feeling, that's the power of love.

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream;
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream.
Make a bad one good, mm, make a wrong one right.
Power of love that keep you home at night.

You don't need money, don't take fame.
Don't need no credit card to ride this train.
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes.
But it might just save your life.
That's the power of love.
That's the power of love.

First time you feel it, it might make you sad.
Next time you feel it, it might make you mad.
But you'll be glad , baby when you've found
That's the power makes the world go 'round.

And it don't take money, don't take fame.
Don't need no credit card to ride this train.
It's strong and it's sudden. It can be cruel sometimes.
But it might just save your life.

They say that all in love is fair, yeah, but you don't care.
But you'll know what to do when it gets hold of you.
And with a little help from above, you feel the power of love.
You feel the power of love.
Can you feel it?
Hmm.

It don't take money, and it don't take fame.
Don't need no credit card to ride this train.
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel.
But you won't feel nothing till you feel,
You feel the power, just feel the power of love.
That's the power, that's the power of love.
You feel the power of love.
You feel the power of love.
Feel the power of love.

Gioacchino "Horrible Name" Rossini - William Tell Overture, from Clockwork Orange.

And I saw Lock Stock and Two Smokin Barrels last night and Zorba's (The Greek) Dance by Andre Rieu works wonders in it.  smile

Out of a complete coincidence, that's exactly what my friends and I did this summer. We'd drive around late at night, blaring "The Power of Love" at passing motorists (even louder if they were playing a really bad rap song.) You should have seen the looks on their faces.  evil laugh

"Come What May"- Even though it was featured in Moulin Rouge, the song was written for Baz Luhrmann's film Romeo + Juliet.  A big happy birthday to Baz, by the way.  smile
Yann Tiersan's Amelie soundtrack is just wonderful.  I can listen to it over and over.  I also really like the Michelle Branch-meets-the Donna's style of the
Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack.  Recently, I bought the Chocolat and Uptown Girls CDs, but the latter isn't very replayable, save for three tracks.  I love Danny Elfman's scores, and I'm really eager to hear what he's written for Big Fishsmile   Klaus Badelt's score for Pirates of the Caribbean and the CD for Freaky Friday (Lash!  love ) are in my CD player, but I'm most obsessed with the soundtrack for Once Upon a Time in Mexico.  "Pistolero" by Juno Reactor, "Sands Theme" by Tonto's Giant Nuts and "Siente Mi Amour" by Salma Hayek are on repeat all the time.  I love the various snippets of dialogue on the CD:
"It is so good that when I'm finished, I will pay my bill, walk straight into the kitchen and shoot the cook.  And that is what I want from you my friend; to help me keep the balance by pulling the trigger."
"You want me to shoot the cook?"
"No, I'll shoot the cook.  My car's parked out back anyway."
***
"We can't go any further."
"Why?  Why not?"
"Just look out there!"
"I can't see!  I have no eyes!"

Sands dialogue...  love

Fight Club comes to mind at once, followed shortly by Go (Dust brothers and BT awww, yeah).

Orchestral, I like Braveheart, The Jurassic park overature.

I love the folk stylings of O brother where art thou.  That brings Amadeus to mind.  The Dune soundtrack is pretty cool.  Now, and you'll just have to take my word for this if you haven't seen it, I mentioned Urusei Yatsura 2 in the anime section, Trust me.  The score for the climactic Baku secne and the harrier flight is phenomenal. 

Even if you don't like anime, Try this movie on for size.  Rent it, and even if you don't like the film, just listen to that great score.

I don't have the CD, but I know what you mean by that song. It's highly addictive! Right along with that other trailer song I'm listening to, "Red Tape" by Agent Provocateur. It was used in the "Underworld" trailer.

Some of David Newman's stuff from Heathers is really good, I like that.

Individual songs:

"Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds, from The Breakfast Club.
"Oh Yeah" by Yello from Ferris Buellers Day Off.
"Wake Up" by Rage Against The Machine from The Matrix.
"Another Body Murdered" By Faith No More & Boo Yaa T.R.I.B.E. from Judgment Night.

More Faith No More: "We Care A Lot" from Gross Pointe Blank and "The Perfect Crime" from Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

And I love a song called "Song For Holly" by Esthero & Danny Saber from Go, in fact the whole soundtrack is awesome.  Highly recommend it.
