I like Fantastic Voyage very much

Neville, I too love FANTASTIC VOYAGE. And as the human body is largely composed of water, I suppose it does indeed count as "underwater music". By the way, a tomato is also mostly water, so I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned the score to ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES.

David Rose - TEXAS CARNIVAL

David Rose and Saul Chaplin - JUPITER'S DARLING

George Stoll - THRILL OF A ROMANCE, THIS TIME FOR KEEPS, NEPTUNE'S DAUGHTER, DANGEROUS WHEN WET

I'd agree with almost all of the above and would add:

Akira Ifukube:
"Atragon"
"Latitude Zero"

Eric Serra:
"The Big Blue"

Klaus Doldinger:
"Das Boot"

Andrei Petrov:
"Chelovek-Amfibiya" (aka "Amphibian Man") from the USSR -- cool score

P.S. Edit/Addition: There are some fine underwater cues in "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" -- and as a kid I loved "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" -- should probably not forget "The Little Mermaid"!

No unique titles here, but here goes:

BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF
MYSTERIOUS ISLAND
THE ABYSS
THUNDERBALL
MERMAIDS OF TIBURON
JUPITER'S DARLING had a good underwater score

Tarzan And The Mermaids(1948) had some good Tiomkin 'underwater music' A 4:30 suite appeared on THE ALAMO: The Essential Dimitri Tiomkin (Silva Screen)

Crap, I somehow forgot about one of my favorite movies which had some great music from Mancini, Stein, Salter, et. al. The Creature from The Black Lagoon. I was thinking more of ocean than lagoon!

Most of the cues from the score "U-571" and some from "Victory at Sea" would count for me as a favorite. Would some of the cues from the score "Das Boot" count as a favorite?

Ah, of course....submarine movies! They mostly have excellent music - DAS BOOT, HUNT FOR THE RED OCTOBER, CRIMSON TIDE, U-547 and K1: THE WIDOWMAKER. Perhaps even ICE STATION ZEBRA would count? I like them all!

Here's a shout out to Henry Manfredini for Deep Star Six (the other, other Abyss movie)!

All the "majors" I like got named, so I can only add the obscure:

The Cousteau Odyssey (late 1970's)

Elmer Bernstein did "Diving for Roman Plunder"
George Delerue did "The Nile"
John Scott did more than one that I liked.

I recorded the first two scores off TV back in the day, since I liked them so much. I see the DVD is in my local library, plus SF. But many copies appear to be stolen. Maybe others liked the scores as much as I did!
