Tunes on Tuesday (Movie Scores)

In Best of, Movies on 01/13/2009 at 9:36 AM

My brothers make fun of me for having so many movie scores on my ipod.  I like listening to them while I study or read.  This is my list of the top movie scores.  I am limiting this list to calssical music.  There are a lot of good movie soundtracks (Garden State, Little Miss Sunshine, O Brother Where Art Thou etc..) but that is for another list.  I have not kept up with the movie scores in the past six months so this list may be a little dated.  Oh yeah and they are in no particular order.  They are all good, and it was too hard to put them in order.  Clearly I have some favorite composers.  Next week I will give my favorite Movie Score individual songs.

The Mission:  Ennio Morricone
