    I was thinking about this as I enjoyed two incredible movies back to back, "Glory" and "The Mission".

    Both have some of the best movie scores my ears, mind and heart have ever experienced. I thought of numerous other haunting (and majestic) scores that have stayed with me through the years; in "Saving Private Ryan", "Braveheart", "Schindler's List" and "The Thin Red Line".

    To me though, Ennio Morricone's "On Earth As It Is In Heaven" from the Robert De Niro movie "The Mission" is the most beautiful composition of music I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

    What do you think?

    Platoon has the most haunting score I've ever heard.

    I also loved "The Mission" soundtrack

    Some of my other favorites would be "Blade Runner" by Vangelis, "The Last of the Mohicans" and the movie "The Passion"

    "The Lost Boys" soundtrack is definitely one of the more popular soundtracks I have ever seen.

    Love Tubular Bells.

    I always smile and get all "feel good" when I hear the theme to the Pink Panther.

    Big fan of the series..have seen every movie..10 times...

    Peter Sellers was a genius.
