The Contenders: Page 2

21 Tema d'amore - Nuovo Cinema Paradiso
22 A Small Measure of Peace - Last Samurai

Zimmers masterful piece completes the movie and is beautifully heard in the final sequences of the Last Samurai as Tom Cruises character returns to his loved one. Truly a masterpiece... Connects with your heart... This is not only a beautiful piece but highly important

23 La Valse d´Amelie - Amelie

This song from Amelie is so exceptional. Almost everyone knows this song. It isn�'t the only great piece form this film. I also love Comptine d�'un autre l�'apres-midi. I don�'t know anyone, who doesn�'t like these songs. They just fit into the movie.

24 Gollum's Song - Lord of the Rings
25 Dumbledore's Farewell - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Undoubtly one of the most emotional music pieces I've ever heard.

26 Dances With Wolves

John Barry won an academy award for best original score for this peaceful and heart-warming work.

28 Memories of Green - Blade Runner
29 Over the Love - The Great Gatsby

Cry and cry and cry over the love of you!

30 Klute - Michael Small
31 Lovers - House of Flying Daggers

Either the soundtrack version by Kathleen Battle, or Jackie Evancho's superb version on her CD "Dream With Me", this is an extremely evocative number.

Say what you want about the film, but this is one of the most wonderfully-made and emotional score I've ever heard in a film.

The most beautiful song in the history of the world
