The Beatles "A Hard Days Night" is my favorite. It has great Beatles songs and a wonderful jazzy soundtrack.  By  THE WAY, IT IS ON THIS AFTERNOON ON TCM.  I AM TAPING IT.  If you can see it, it is an absolute treat.

This was almost too easy or too hard for me.  Too easy because I've compiled playlists of favorite film soundtracks over the years. Too hard because picking favorites is next to impossible but I'll give it a try:

Jerry Goldsmith's exotic love theme from  "CHINATOWN"

 

Patrick Doyle's haunting love theme from "CARLITO'S WAY"

Alan Silvestri's memorable music from "CASTAWAY"

Fernando Valazquez's tragic & inspiring theme from "THE IMPOSSIBLE"

So many, many more.  Oh, and anything by JOHN BARRY.
