Top 10 Most Beautiful Movie Scores

For anyone that follows me on Spotify – it’s no secret that I listen to film scores more often than any other music.  Pull back a headphone from my ears at work, and you most likely will hear a melancholy ballad from “Meet Joe Black” or “Big Fish.”  There’s something about the way this particular genre draws me in  –  transforming  administrative tasks into epic adventures.  Turning brainstorming into epiphanies.

The power of a film score does so much more than just aid the movie it is placed in.  And, although there are hundreds of inspiring scores to discover, below are my top 10:

10. “Main Title” by James Horner (Braveheart)
