  3. Mightywoof says:

    Ennio Morricone is one of my favorite movie composers -- along with Maurice Jarre. Morricone’s ‘The Mission’ reduces me to an emotional, quivering heap!! I donn’t know how to embed videos but here’s the link to Gabriel’s Oboe


    Thanks Blue -- I’m in a music mood today πŸ˜†

    My sister’s favourite movie! πŸ™‚

    [sigh] That music reminds me of my parents’ restaurant when I was little.

  5. BlueStateMan says:


    Leonard Bernstein changed show music FOREVER with this score…

  6. Khirad says:

    So, I just watched this movie tonight, and I almost lost it at this.

    Behold: Latin Fever -- Hindustani style!

  7. Khirad says:

    These would all fit well in the movies thread below. πŸ˜‰

    Really picks up about 2:00.

    This is what Delerium sounds like in their non-pop material.

    Requiem For a Dream -- Delerium -- Deluxed

    Nod to the cheesy and cheeky Rodriguez/Tarantino vampire film, From Dusk till Dawn.

    Rammstein -- Engel

    Speaking of the undead, Bram Stoker’s Dracula was one of my favorite CDs to listen to (and scare the crap out of my sister’s friends πŸ˜† ):

    Wojciech Kilar -- Mina’s Photo
