Top Ten Best Movie Soundtracks

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

42 The Empire Strikes Back (John Williams)
43 Lords of Dogtown
44 Spider-Man (Danny Elfman)
45 Across the Universe
46 Road House
47 Akira (Shoji Yamashiro)
48 Help!
49 Gone with the Wind (Max Steiner)
50 Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
51 The Bourne Legacy V 1 Comment
52 Sherlock Holmes (Hans Zimmer)

Musically to rank trash like Grease ahead of this masterpiece of a score is insane.

This has such an adventurous score unlike garbage like Titanic and Grease.

More quirky than Titanic but that's why this score is more interesting.

This movie should be in a category of it's own. The sound of Zimmer is too special to be in this list. Where are the other steampunks? This is just pure ignorance people!

53 The Wizard of Oz (Harold Arlen)
54 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (John Williams)
55 Elf (John Debney)
56 Run Lola Run
57 All About Lily Chou-Chou
58 The Terminator (Brad Fiedel)

The theme to Terminator 2 is a very nice theme. there's a real tragedy to it that makes you feel the surprising emotional weight of the story and the characters.

59 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (Alexandre Desplat)

Just listen to it! Even if you're not a fan of the movies, forget that and listen to the music.
