RE: Movie soundtracks
If I had to chose one, it would be the main theme song to Cast Away. This music was playing when Tom Hanks finally escaped from the island and he was floating out to sea. It got real quiet and this started playing. The way he looked back at the island was so spot on. And when he finally returned home, nothing turned out the way he had hoped and he had to build a new life. This music played again at the end of the movie, where he is staring down long roads going in all four directions, trying to decide where to go next. Such a fantastic moment; bittersweet and hopeful all at the same time. I cannot accurately describe my feelings when I hear this. I have even asked my wife to play this at my funeral someday. lol Either this or Tubthumping by Chumbawamba.

I'm struggling to recall the music from Gladiator (one of my favourite movies), was it noteworthy?

Hans Zimmer's best work IMO.

I liked the music throughout Cinema Paradiso and to A Little Romance. I also thought some of the music in The Deer Hunter was very compelling and unforgettable. Then there is that saw being played at the beginning and end of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest--always liked that strange bitty there.

Virgil Cane is the name ...
