Original Film Scores (Music by...)

1 post in this topic

I am wondering: has there ever been a topic on Original film scores? If not, I am suggesting it. Since I was a boy, I was interested in composers who wrote the original music for movies. When I was a teenager, I used to love Enio Morricone (still do), "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is probably his masterpiece. But later, I got to know the scores of Bernard Herrmann. I think he is the greatest composer of film music to date. Hitchcock called upon him for many of his movies. He also did (but there are so many) the score for "The 7th. Voyage of Sinbad" and "Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth". I believe his last composition was for Scorsese's "Taxi Driver". Bernard Herrmann is so good that even if the movie itself is not so great, the movie is worth watching just for Hermann's score. I also like the compositions of Dimitri Tiomkin ("The Guns of Navarone", "Dial M for Murder", "The Fall of the Roman Empire", "Gunfight at the OK Corral", just to name a few). What do you folks think? would love some feedback on this. Thank you!
