Music of the Movies: Part 1

Music is an essential part of the movies, the Oscar award for Best Original Score recognizes music composed to support the film. I'm sure everyone has a list of their favorite soundtracks so I'm gonna run through mine:

The Departure

  • From the movie Gattaca
  • I was encouraged to listen to it by a good friend of mine & I never regretted it.
  • Short fingers makes it difficult to play the piano solo but I'm trying!
Star Wars theme

  • Duh from the Star Wars saga
  • Awesome wind music, I hope to get the OG to perform this theme one day!
Come What May

  • From the movie Moulin Rouge
  • Nicole Kidman & Ewan McGregor sung it beautifully, so wistful & longing
Star Trek theme

  • From the new Star Trek movie
  • The horn solo in the beginning is amazing
The Ride of the Rohirrim

  • From the LOTR movie The Two Towers
  • Amazing build up, you can almost smell the horses & the warriors
I'll do this as a series of 5 per entry, stay tuned! :)
Feel free to give me suggestions to include in the future!
