    I love Last of the Mohicans, too! That is the very one that came to mind when I saw this thread!
    And StarWars. I like John Williams stuff.

    I doubt anyone will know what I'm talking about, but I loved the "White Nights" soundtrack back in '89. I never stopped playing it. I also loved "Fame" and "Footloose".

    Two of my favorite workout CDs are the soundtracks from the movies "Centre Stage" (Canned Heat and Higher Ground) and "The Cutting Edge" (Ride on Time and Baby Now I).

    ETA: How could I forget "The Doors".

    The Thin Red Line - gorgeously meditating, subtle and complex

    Alien 3 - haunting, orchestral, yet mournful

    Poltergeist - classic, uses all the orchestra, well put together

    Requiem for a dream.....hands down

    Last of the Mohicans is brilliantly haunting

    Im there with Mcjag with John Williams as well......personally I liked Empire strikes backs' music more, cause of the "Imperial March".....but....hey its still John.......

    I'm sorry, but I can't stand John Williams, he just rips off themes from other composers. A lot of the Star Wars music is a direct ripoff of Holst's Planets Suite.

    Luke and Leia theme = the horn line from Venus
    Rebel ship taken over by Star Destroyer, Imperial March = Mars: Bringer of War (actually much of Star Wars is based on this movement, but this is the climax)
    Force theme = Dvorak's 9th symphony (New World Symphony)

    Other music he's "borrowed" from:
    Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet"
    Sibelius' "Finlandia"
    Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition"
    "The Rite of Spring" and "The Firebird" by Stravinsky
    Korngold's theme to "King's Row"
    Persichetti's 6th symphony
    "Death and Transfiguration" by Strauss

    NDBT! I don't care where he got bits & pieces from, I love the sound when he puts it together! At this point, the chance of a total new invention based on the same notes is all but impossible anyway! Every one you listed is divine on its own or stolen. Finlandia is amazing.

    Elisa! White Knights-totally forgot that one! Love it!
