Top Ten Best Movie Soundtracks

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Across the Universe
42 Requiem for a Dream (Clint Mansell)

Lux Aeterna is a masterpiece, and so is the rest of the soundtrack. Every single score is flawless and compliments the film perfectly. Requiem is one of the best movies ever made.

Why is this down here?!? Come on guys this song really inspire me to make a story or even making a fighting scene in my head! This song is totally worth it!

What the hell! This SHOULD be in the top 10! You guys have asses for ears.

This is the best soundtrack

43 Sherlock Holmes (Hans Zimmer)

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

Very atmospheric with the broken pianos and the accordions complementing one another.

Who doesn't like Discombobulate? It's Sherlock Holmes' equivalent to He's a Pirate.

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!

44 Gone with the Wind (Max Steiner)
45 Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
46 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.

47 Help!
48 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (John Williams)
49 All About Lily Chou-Chou
50 Singin' in the Rain
51 Billy Elliot
52 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.

53 Guardians of the Galaxy (Tyler Bates)

Agreed this soundtrack does not have even a single original song and is all but a playlist but the way the songs merge into the movie and become an integral part of it is just phenomenal! This soundtrack does deserve a much higher rating!

Why is this so low it has a spectacular sound track

54 Spirited Away
55 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

56 28 Days Later (John Murphy)

In the House, In a Heartbeat. Best apocalyptic music there has been.

57 Princess Mononoke (Joe Hisaishi)

... Really guys? Joe Hisaishi is simply one of the best music composers of our age! All the music he's created for Studio Ghibli, principally for Hayao Miyazaki movies, are AMAZING. If you haven't checked out his music, or Hayao Miyazaki's movies, do yourself a favor and please, listen/watch it. I promise you won't regret it.
Although I love all his tracks, I have to say that Princess Mononoke's ones are really intense, full of emotion and... Ugh, I don't even have words to describe it. Simply wonderful.

58 Free Willy
59 Flashdance
60 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.
