Ever try picking a single favorite soundtrack cue for each of your favorite film composers? Yeah. I guess I felt like a challenge today. Trying to choose only one is a form of torture, sure enough, but there's also something satisfying about it. Interestingly, my favorite individual cues are not from my favorite score by that same composer.
I've never done this on my journal before, but I've seen other blogs do this, so where available, I've included a link to the music.
- Jerry Goldsmith - "Winter March" from Patton.
- Elmer Bernstein - "Main Title" from The Bridge at Remagen.
Jump to 5:40 on this one for the theme... there were a couple versions of just the theme but I disliked the orchestration in them. This is the version I like.
