21 Forrest Gump Suite (Forrest Gump)

So simple yet so beautiful. the perfect music to accompany this mentally challenged man in his journey. when ever I hear it I picture a feather falling from the sky and Forrest running across the country.

Number 1 songs thru the generations

22 Grease (Michael Gibson)

Boring! Doesn't hold a candle to the thrilling scores of Sherlock Holmes or Pirates of the Caribbean.

Nothing really special is it.

Really? This fake 50s trash?

The title track is from Barry Gibb - BeeGeesfan999

23 2001: A Space Odyssey

What's this doing so low? It's easily so memorable. I'd put it higher above the list.

The most beautiful soundtrack ever. - MontyPython

This theme is just so iconic. you hear it everywhere in culture. especially when something big's about to happen. this is alex north's best work yet.

24 8 Mile

Really great work of Eminem "Lose Yourself" is an absolute epic song, the other songs are also great

This is the best one, cause Eminem made it with many other rapstars and it had sold 10 million copies in the world.

This post is by Eminem and this is the best most!

Eminem - PeeledBanana

25 The Nightmare Before Christmas (Danny Elfman)

Danny Elfman also does Jack's singing voice as well.

26 Back to the Future (Alan Silvestri)

Not even in the top 10? My personal favorite. - Spongebob-129

Come on what's Twilight doing above this? - Spongebob-129

Ugh, really? How to train your Dragon is above Bttf? Though not being my all time favorite movie, it DOES have the greatest soundtrack.

27 Once Upon a Time In the West (Ennio Morricone)

"Once Upon a Time In America" is a different movie, albeit made by the some of the same people.

"Once Upon a Time In the West" has a rich collection of themes, unlike other movies which have not more than 1 theme.
- Gaspar

This movie should be a category of its own. The sound of Morricone is too great to be in this list. Where are the other spaghettis? This is just pure ignorance people!

At least top 20. This is original compositions not a gathering of previously recorded songs.

Great movie, Great music!

28 Halloween

It just keeps playing in your head, and it's the most recognisable song of the horror movies

29 Dirty Dancing

How is this not on here.
This is one of the most well known movie soundtraacks.

30 Schindler's List (John Williams)

How this hauntingly beautiful masterpiece is not in the top 10 beats me...

This is an amazing sound track. I also can't believe that it is so far down... in the 210th place.

31 The Hobbit (Howard Shore)

Although there are some really amazing sound track this can't be much lower than 5th. there's such depth and color in all of Howard shore's music but in both the hobbit and lord of the ring trilogy there is an almost incomprehensible abundance of emotion and expression. Howard shore has more music interpretive ability than possibly any human alive today. - Messej

This should at least be thirty. It's pretty good, and a lot better than twilight. - Spongebob-129

32 The Mission (Ennio Morricone)

I have an intensely physical and emotional response to this music.

What a great film and soundtrack.

33 Frozen (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Christophe Beck)

This should be near the bottom of this list it has ONE descent song on it the rest are either mediocre or just god damn annoying - christangrant

Whoever voted for this get rid of your inner teenage girl, and if you are a teenage girl, grow up - Spongebob-129

This movie's songs are way to over played - MaverickRide

34 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (John Williams)

Includes the iconic theme of the original, plus many new tracks, including slave children's crusade, which is itself one of the best pieces of film score that I have ever heard.

35 A Hard Day's Night

A movie with all original music by THE Beatles?
Yes, that should definitely be in the #1 spot!

36 Inception (Hans Zimmer)

Seriously, 14th? This soundtrack is so powerful that it brought me to tears. This and the dark knight are the only two soundtracks to do so and it is a truly incredible feeling. Hans Zimmer is definitely the most brilliant modern composer and is largely overlooked on this list. Please, vote for this soundtrack. Also, where is interstellar on this list? That is also an incredible brainchild of Zimmer.

It deserves to be in top 5 guys common listen to it first and then decide please guys vote for this one. It deserves to be on the top speciaaly because of "time" soundtrack of the movie. So first listen to the track and then vote for it!

This is one of the greatest soundtracks ever! Please put it in top five, if not number 1... "Time' and 'Old souls' are just heart breakingly beautiful. 'Dream is collapsing' is magnificient and an uncanny aural portrayal of the corresponding scene in the film. So great its epic!

It has to be in Top 5

37 Psycho (Bernard Herrmann)

This has got to be one of the most overused soundtracks of all time. I'm not kidding. I hear it everywhere in T. V, in movies, and in video games. It usually plays whenever something scary or shocking happens (especially when it's used as a joke). now that is quite an accomplishment for a film soundtrack. it's even inspired other horror movie soundtracks as well.

This theme is so horrifying, I wet my pants with fear after I hear it! Never have I heard a theme so perfectly constructed with suspension and terror. it's just so frightening on so many levels.

39 Spider-Man (Danny Elfman)
