Best ever film theme music

Post by greeneyed » December 3, 2013, 7:44 pm

Just watching The Magnificent Seven... and it is surely one of the best film themes of all time.

I like Morricone in Once Upon A Time In The West having theme music for each of the four main characters...

His theme music for A Fistful Of Dollars; For A Few Dollars More and; The Good, The Bad And The Ugly are all very catchy and memorable...

The Exorcist and Halloween themes also come to mind...

I watch OAATITW just for the music.

Also, Escape From New York is "of it's time..."

And a personal favourite, Order Of Death with Harvey Keitel and John Lydon.

Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Bill Murray called the opening 40 minutes to Ghostbusters 1 his best ever work, and he's done some awesome work.

Here's his take on Japan for TR
In Japan, you have no idea what they are saying, and they can't help you either. Nothing makes any sense. They're very polite, but you feel like a joke is being played on you the entire time you're there.
