Do you know Elfman did the score for Good Will Hunting as well? One of my favorites of his is the opening titles from that movie.
Also, the train station score from Unbreakable is great (James Newton Howard).
Most of Thomas Newman’s score for Meet Joe Black is wonderful.
Howard Shore’s music for The Lord of the Rings has been top-notch so far. “Forth Eolingas” from The Two Towers and “Concerning Hobbits” from Fellowship are quite memorable.
Eric Clapton’s music for the British series Edge of Darkness is very rare, but very worth finding.
James Horner’s score for Sneakers is awesome, especially “Too Many Secrets.” His theme for the “Battle in the Mutara Nebula” from Star Trek II is a lot of fun, and “Bishop’s Countdown” from Aliens is an out-and-out classic.
Tangerine Dream’s “People in the News” from Miracle Mile and the Unicorn theme from Legend are great.
Hans Zimmer has some great work, “Now We Are Free” from Gladiator is one of my favorites.
Alanis Morrisette’s song “Uninvited” from the City of Angels soundtrack is almost worth the price of the CD by itself.
“Sleepers Wake” from 12 Monkeys is quite memorable, one of those songs that is hard to seperate from the film.
Peter Gabriel’s “A Different Drum” from The Last Temptation of Christ is incredible (but really, the whole score kicks ass).
The use of Sting’s “Shape of My Heart” at the end of Leon (The Professional) is one of the most perfect uses of music I’ve ever heard in a film.
My favorite use of music in any film, however, is the use of Henryk Gorecki’s Symphony Number 3 at the end of Fearless. I swear I stop breathing every time I see that sequence, and it’s perhaps the ideal marriage of music with film. Heartbreakingly perfect.
