Your favorite movie/tv series soundtrack

The soundtrack of a TV series or a movie is often more interesting than the actual show. What is your favorite soundtrack? Or song for that matter?

My favorites:

Martin Boettcher: Karl May movies (from the 60ies): Surehand Melody, Winnetou, Der Schut
Riz Ortolani: Karl May, Django
The whole Django unchained soundtrack despite having not seen the movie
Karel Svoboda: Cinderella (Drei Haselnuesse fuer Aschenbroedel) and many other German/European soundtracks for TV series for children
Raumpatrouille Orion (Space Patrol Orion) Germen SciFi, music by Peter Thomas
Jerry Goldsmith: Star Trek, Air Force One
Elmer Bernstein: Magnificent Seven
Ennio Moricone: Ecstasy of Gold ......

Just to name a few.

My favorite movie of all time - and also my favorite soundtrack - is 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Re: Your favorite movie/tv series soundtrack

I absolutely love the soundtrack for the Lynch version of Dune, as well as the Dune/Children of Dune miniseries.

Another favorite is the soundtrack for the 1982 Marco Polo miniseries.

Re: Your favorite movie/tv series soundtrack

I forgot to mention the Convoy soundtrack. In this case Im more interested in the songs than in the actual movie.

And "Unknown Stuntmant", Lee Majors.

Despite the fact that I like Rockn `Roll, I also like Vic Fontaine/James Darren and the Sinatra style songs like "Heres to the losers", "Come fly with me" and "The Best is yet to come".

Re: Your favorite movie/tv series soundtrack

When I'm organized, my soundtrack collection is broken down by genre: superhero music, sci-fi music, horror music, swashbuckling music, spy music, and even quiet, reflective music for when I'm writing low-key, character scenes.

Some of my staples:

Blink (a cool old thriller with Madeleine Stowe), The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, The Shadow, The Avengers (the 1960s spy series, not the Marvel heroes), The Time Machine (1960s version), Our Man Flint, The Last of the Mohicans (modern version), Conan the Barbarian, and Eve's Bayou.

The one catch: I can't listen to anything with lyrics when I'm writing. I don't need other words floating around in my head when I'm trying to come up with my own. I only listen to music with lyrics when I'm doing housework.

Re: Your favorite movie/tv series soundtrack

"Cloud Atlas"
I also like a lot of the music from "Lost", though I also find a lot of it fairly generic.

For TV shows, I really like Corner Gas' Beginning and End themes. They're pretty much perfect as TV themes go.

Beginning


End

Off the top of my head, RONIN by Elia Cmiral, BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA by the European with very little vowels, and Danny Elfman's SWEENEY TODD adaptation. And from last year, Mica Levi's UNDER THE SKIN. If that one's not on CD yet, it deserves to be.
