MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS YOU LOVE

Recommended Posts

Some good selections there. 

I own MIKLOS ROZSA's soundtrack for BEN HUR on two different vinyl issues (boxed set and gatefold) plus the two disc CD issue.  I listen to that every spring.  It's wonderful.

^ In BEN HUR (1959) it's the MGM ORCHESTRA.  The LONDON SYMPHONY did a good job, and it's ROZSA's own BEN HUR SUITE... but the MGM ORCHESTRA original is better.   There were at least a few releases with a "suite" composed by ROZSA to satisfy public demand for a more "accessible" record. 

How about the soundtrack from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY - no original music, some litigation regarding GYORGY LIGETI's compositions used without his permission (they settled)?

I enjoy almost anything by Morricone, but Once Upon a Time in the West usually tops my list.

I like the opening theme song DRIFTING AND DREAMING sung by Valerie Carter in the 1975 Columbia movie WHITE LINE FEVER.  I thought the song should've been released as a single, but it does not appear to have been released at all.  It's been kindly uploaded to YouTube.

^ Great song... did she write it?  VALERIE CARTER died in 2017.  What a loss. 

I bought a JENNIFER WARNES Greatest Hits CD to get this song from NORMA RAE

A LITTLE ROMANCE is beautiful.  All of that GEORGES DELERUE music you posted is lovely.

Think I've got a 45' rpm single of IT GOES LIKE IT GOES around here somewhere, Hallows.

I don't think VALERIE CARTER wrote "Drifting and Dreaming".  It's on the opening credits who wrote it, but I forgot . . .

^ "Drifting and Dreaming" reminded me of that JENNIFER WARNES recording.  I gather VALERIE CARTER was a songwriter.  It's real nice whoever wrote it.

^ NINO ROTA composed scores for some of my favorite films, like LA DOLCE VITA. .   81/2 is so special and required that perfect circus fanfare.  I am a huge fan of FELLINI who had great taste and always knew what was perfect.

AFRICA ADDIO was made by the same guys as MONDO CAINE... as you may notice I can't keep up with ya!  I listen to all of the YouTubes anybody links.  I do love my movie music. 

I like that POPOL VUH - right in my wheelhouse - but I don't know it.

I enjoy listening to silent movies. :huh:

I like some of the new scores,  examples " The Rag Man" (1925) by Linda Martinez.  Talented musician who died too young. RIP

There is an alternative new score to "Nosferatu"  (1922) which TCM haven't shown during the past 10+ years.

"Haxan" (1922)

Gershwin fan,

I know some of the movies where music of POPUL VUH was used... they're like TANGERINE DREAM... really nice.  Listening now to your AGUIRRE link...

Allhallowsday, you are awesome. I saw the word 'soundtrack' and got really excited. In my circle there is really only one person that I know who is into soundtracks. I could go on and on on this topic.

💘 Here's a romantic one since Valentine's Day is around the corner. Does anyone like the love theme from The Lost Weekend by Miklos Rozsa?

^ I never realized MIKLOS ROZSA composed the music for THE LOST WEEKEND... which is a wonderful film. 

Please do go on and on... one at a time so anybody can talk about them!

Then we have to decide if there'll be a distinction between "soundtrack" and "score".  As in my way of thinking, movie musicals have a "soundtrack", and all the other movies have a "score".  ..

Sepiatone

I see your point... to an extent.  I think a soundtrack is not necessarily a score, but a score is a soundtrack.  

Now here's a masterfully compiled soundtrack pilfered from recordings in the can..."scores" from TV or other low rent films like TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE :
