Top Ten John Barry Film ScoresBKAllmighty One of James Bond's most important people during its early years, here are the greatest scores composed by John Barry (1933-2011).
The Top Ten
Most haunting, beautiful score ever written for motion pictures,
Capturing both the sheer immensity of Africa, and the love of the country and each other -- Meryl Streep's Danish countess, and her lover, a famed British big game hunter, played by Robert Redford. If you don't reach for a kleenex during the flight over the massive African plain, you're missing a pulse.
The main theme is the most exciting, powerful, atmospheric piece of action music ever written and when coupled to the heartbreaking melody of We Have all the time in the world as well as all the cues in between this soundtrack must be one of the best ever to meld music and film together. It is not only the melodies but the fantastic arrangements and production that sets this music apart
I can't believe this isn't Number One. I especially love the opening titles theme and Two Socks' theme. I cry when I hear it because of how powerfully it tells the story of the Native Americans and how they were unfairly treated by the white men. One of my favorite films and film soundtracks of all time!
