Well it was a tough one but i had to go with The Good the Bad and the Ugly for me Ennio Morricone is a Genius, if hairs dont stand up on the back of your neck when listening to that i dont know what will.

My favourite version of the main theme is the Mask of the Phantasm version.

Bright Future
The Legend of 1900 (I haven't seen the film yet! I got this as a present and it grew on me.)

I forgot about Paris, Texas, great soundtrack by Ry Cooder who also scored another film called Southern Comfort.

Well my favourite band is Dead Can Dance so obviously I've got a very soft spot for Gladiator.

My favourite soundtrack from the last couple of years would probably be Drive.

Once again I find it impossible to choose just one. Some of my favourites are:

American Beauty
Edward Scissorhands
LOTR
The Piano
Gladiator

I also usually really enjoy the way Tarantino uses tracks in his films

I watched Django Unchained the other week and loved the soundtrack.

I'm with the OP as far as Morricone is concerned....think I'd go for 'For A Few Dollars More'; particularly the part of the score with Lee Van Cleef's musical pocket watch. Yep, total genius. Beautiful music.

Closely followed by Nino Rota, especially his score for Fellini's '8 and a half' which is magical.

Also love the soundtracks of the Jacques Tati films, particularly 'Mon Oncle' and 'Playtime'.

I prefer soundtracks that largely have original scores vs ones that are more like compilation albums (theres nothing wrong with the latter approach, but obviously it's less creative).

For me the soundtrack is one of the key things that helps to sell a movie to me, so it's hard to pick a favourite, if I had to short list ten I'd go with (in no particular order):

Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Piano, The Artist, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Star Wars: A New Hope, The Red Shoes, Spellbound,The Wizard of Oz, Brokeback Mountain.

I love the soundtrack to the 1980 version of Flash Gordon, composed by Queen. Absolutely brilliant, with parts of the dialogue put into the album, it was like seeing the film again in those days before home video was commonplace. All together now, "GORDONS ALIVE!"
