Oh man, we played a John Williams medley my junior year of high school, and my friend and I got to play the opening to Jaws on our bassoons as a solo...Good times, because we sucked so hard, because we couldn't stop laughing.

I love it too, it makes me happy everytime I see it

I just remembered, my friend was mad at me because we did all the rehersing to play the Jaws theme, and then I got a viral infection and missed the performance She had to play it by herself, and she said the bassoon sounded drunk

I appreciate

I bought the soundtrack album for Star Wars when it came out in 1977. One of the few albums I played to death literally and had to replace with a new one.

Good to hear James Horner mentioned in here as well. He's the fucking man as well.

As for Superman music.

You can't beat The Planet Krypton.

That might actually make my desert island list this time around.

Naboo celebration from Episode I for the win, motherfuckers. Actually, I found the music for Episode 1 to be just great, moreso than the rehashed themes for II or III.

Duel Of The Fates was a fave of mine although nothing beats his original trilogy work IMO:

IV:

-Main Theme
-Ben's Death and TIE Fighter Attack
-The Throne Room and End Title

V:
-Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)
-The Asteroid Field
-Han Solo And The Princess
-Yoda's Theme

VI:

-Into the Trap
-Ewok Celebration/Finale (this is the only time where I think the Special Edition was better than the original)

John Williams....second only to Hans Zimmer in my book (and playlist). My personal favorite is "Flight From Neverland" from Hook.

But my favorite is James Horner. Listen to the soundtrack for Glory. Moves me to tears every time. He also wrote Titanic and Braveheart, to name a few.
The Legends of the Fall theme, love it.

That song is the epitome of great movie soundtrack moments, IMO.

to John Williams, composer, conductor, pianist

I"ve had the Jurassic Park CD for years, I need to listen to it more because it really is awesome.

Beside's the one's already listed He also composed the music for Sabrina (1995) one of my favorite movies ever and was nominated for 2 Oscars.
The Patriot and the River with Mel Gibson my favorite male actor
Artificial Intelligence
War of the Worlds
Far and Away
Home Alone and so many more! unbelievable!

And the 60's TV show Lost in Space that I watched all the time when I was a kid, nostalgia and memories.

And in the future, Indiana Jones 4, Lincoln and Interstellar

Except for Jurassic Park and Home Alone I don't have any other soundtracks, now I know what to ask for Christmas.

I also love James Horner's Braveheart soundtrack, I've listened to that a whole lot.
