Given the number of soundtrack themes posted in the "favourite film scenes" thread, I've decided to open a dedicated thread for all those interested. Hopefully these will make for some nice background music while you're clicking away!

Just a couple to get it rolling:

Cavatina, by Stanley Myers, perf. by John Williams (from The Deer Hunter, Michael Cimino, 1978)
http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=6FZBDnJlHTo&feature=related

Gabriel's Oboe, by Ennio Morricone (from The Mission, Roland Joffé, 1986)
http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=RnwZoIHrfAY&feature=related
Extended version (5:15):

(Apols, been unable to identify the perfing orchestra).

Enjoy!

Álvaro

You are the worst!!!! Oct 15, 2008

Álvaro,

I tried so hard to resist your "favorite scenes" thread! But I can't resist this...

Yes, "The Mission", what a wonderful movie, specially with us at home being such Jesuit fans. And the music is amazing.

Here is the tango "Por una cabeza" in Scent of a Woman, with Al Pacino.

Woody Allen puts amazing themes in all his movies, I'll try to find some.

Thank you!!!!

Lucía

Mixes Oct 15, 2008

Hola Álvaro

Time for my procrastination/fun break.... As Lucía commented, this is too tempting.

I am definitely a movie soundtrack addict (oh no, another hobby addiction!), because I got all these CDs from various movies, so what I like to do is to mix them in my own way.

I got quite a few mixes, but below's one, for you to get an idea (mostly old movies).

I do tend to like French instrumental soundtrack music composers a lot: for example, Yann Tiersen, who composed the soundtrack of a more recent movie, Amélie, or Michel Legrand (older French movies).

Saludos,

Ivette

Indian rap Oct 15, 2008

This is kind of obscure, but I loved the music from the film "Outsourced," especially the Indian rap music by the Danish-Indian duo Bombay Rockers.

There are tons of others I love, but can't think of them at the moment.

Whole soundtracks Oct 15, 2008

Difficult to choose a single theme from:

Vangelis - Blade Runner,
John Barry - Out Of Africa.

Good excuse to listen to them right now!

Whole Soundtracks Oct 15, 2008

Like Lucia, I tried to resist on the previous movie thread, but I can't pass on this one.
I have a couple of favorite soundtracks: Forrest Gump and The Wizard of Oz (the Original one with Judy Garland). In the former, I love the songs related to the different times lived by FG (the 60ies, 70ies and of course the most famous song where the feather is flying, and the final theme after Jenny dies....I always tear up...).
The Wizard of Oz has been in my life since I was a kid, it's my favorite tale and one of my fave movies, I love everything in it. My favourite song apart from the beautiful "Over the Rainbow" (that always gives me goose bumps, it's a timeless song) is "We're off to see the Wizard" (...the wonderful Wizard of OOOOOz, because, because, because, becaaaaaaaaaaaause, because of the wonderful things he does!).
