Road To Perdition - Thomas Newman!

Thomas Newman is just wonderful to listen to. This quote from him is so wise.

"I remember a teacher once asked me, what makes music sad? What a brilliant question. His answer was, it takes on the physical qualities of something sad. Meaning if it's sad, a melody will move in step-wise manner. It will tend to be slower as you are when you're sad; it takes on the physical characteristics of an emotional state. Something in the music rings and carries you back to a memory you have that elicits a feeling. I guess what's wonderful about music is that it's utterly abstract and yet has a great kind of sinuous, subjective emotional reaction. I like the idea that music can be dimensional, that it's not necessarily playing what's there."


Very well said, but music doesn't always make sad, it also makes you happy, feel good, give energy for the same emotional state and memories.
Music really can make me cry or happy.

Yes but what I think he meant to dwell on was the sad mood rather than mood in general.

Star Wars A New Hope and
Star Wars Revenge of the Sith,  

    and yes I'm a Star Wars NERD, but I genuinely think these are great scores. Pirates of the Caribbean is pretty good too.

I thought episodes 2 and 5 were well done too.

"Across the Stars" from Epsiode II is just brilliant and beautiful.  I love Anakin's Theme too...from the bouncy  boy we see in Episode I with the ending having the hints of the Imperial March showing what was to come...

And Duel of the Fates! Let's not forget Duel of the Fates!

*glances over the thread* Only one mention of Schindler's List? Wow, that's Williams' greatest work (he said so himself).

Yes, Schindler's List is on my favorites. It's haunting. Some of my top soundtracks are Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (underrated IMO), Casper (quirky & catchy), Forrest Gump (beautiful & moving), Rudy (motivational), Little Women (nostalgic), Man in the Iron Mask (dramatic), Moulin Rouge from the movie, not released soundtrack, & Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story (beautiful with modern Asian sounds combined with traditional orchestra)

My soundtracks rarely include vocals... if they do, there's only 1-2 tracks with them on there. I LOVE instrumental soundtracks! The only reason Moulin Rouge is on there is because the music is great, and because Ewan McGregor's voice is to die for.

Moulin Rouge's score by Craig Armstrong is great and unfortunately only 2 tracks are available on the second CD, none on the first. Thank goodness for promo albums! I have the full score.

Robin Hood seems to be underrated by those who aren't score fans LOL as crazy as that sounds. Most score fans I know have mentioned that it is one of their favorites.

I couldn't find this until now, so I will bump it up.
Is there anyway to combine the two?

Thanks Prince Lieven.

No problem.  ;) I don't think they can be combined but you can copy and paste from the other one to this one.  :)
