Amazing Movie Soundtracks

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Besides the plot, scriptwriting, casting and special effects of a movie, I also pay equal attention to the music playing in the background of the scenes.
If you are not interested in or immediately fall asleep when you listen to classical/orchestral/instrumental music, you should stop reading this post right now XD

As I have said in an earlier post, music is able to evoke all kinds of emotions in an individual-depending on the mood of the music- and I am absolutely amazed with its ability to do so. Some of them can be epic, some of them can be poetic and gentle. Some of them even makes me want to cry everytime I hear it (yes, I'm a sucker for beautiful music).

Here are my all-time favourites:

Btw, most of them start out very soft. So, be patient :)
They are arranged in no specific order.

Time composed by Hans Zimmer (From the movie, Inception)
*The song reminds me of destruction and hope at the same time. Weird, isn't it?*

Dream is Collapsing composed by Hans Zimmer (From the movie, Inception)

Revolutionary Road End Title Song composed by Thomas Newman (From the movie, Revolutionary Road)

Any Other Time composed by Thomas Newman (From the movie, American Beauty)

The Reader Trailer Song (Primavera) composed by Ludovico Einaudi (From the movie, The Reader)
*The whole song is mainly consisting of piano and violins. The violin part is mind-blowing.*

Discombobulate composed by Hans Zimmer (From the movie, Sherlock Holmes)
*Beginning of the song is VERY soft. The song starts to pick up at around 0:22*
