Johan Söderqvist's gorgeous score for "Let the Right One In" was the first one that came to mind.
There is a lot of beautiful music in IL MOSTRO E IN TAVOLA... BARONE FRANKENSTEIN / DRACULA CERCA SANGUE DI VERGINE... E MORI DI SETE!!! (FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN / BLOOD FOR DRACULA) composed by Claudio Gizzi.
Manuel di Sica's score for DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE is quite lovely, too.
(With apologies if I'm repeating choices already mentioned by others -- I did a quick read and didn't notice the above.)
Other Jerry the man pretty music in the genre includes Logan's run-75- end theme-Damnation alley-77- End theme- such a nice peaceful theme,The swarm-78- Love theme-Star trek-79- Main theme and beautiful love theme-Gremlins-84- Main theme-, Explorers- and Innerspace has some nice passages throughout.Star Trek-first contact- enchanting main theme etc etc etc
Early in this thread TONEROW-mention about the sensitive music George Duning gave to episodes of the Star Trek TV show, here are a few more nice pretty genre music from the Great George Duning-My blood runs cold-65- great majestic tuneful main theme-Black noon-71- Arnold-74- catchy tuneful theme song-Terror in the wax museum-74- pretty end theme melody, Goliath awaits-81-touching passages etc
I just picked up the de Sica score for Dellamorte Dellamore (AKA Cemetery Man). Tonight will be its virgin spin. I haven't seen the movie in about 5-6 years, and I can't recall the music. I hope I'm in for a treat.
There's a lot to choose from in Signs by James Newton Howard, but it goes out on such an idyllic note with "The Hands of Fate, Pt. 2." This is James Newton Howard's best score, for me. No questions asked.
I used to play Kawai Kenji's score to Ghost in the Shell countlessly as I went to bed as a kid. It was one of my favorite movies, and the music was so different to my ears at that age. I still enjoy revisiting both every so often. From that score, "Ghost City."
Two more Sci-Fi picks for the night and then I'm off to bed. 3:30 AM has snuck up and my eyes are going droopy so I'll go out on some all-time favorites.
From Dark City, Trevor Jones weaves some interesting music in this one. Lots of fans, lots of detractors. But I know I love it, and I love the subtle love and memory themes he builds upon in this piece, "Memories of Shell Beach."
And from Blade Runner, the grand master of beautiful Sci-Fi film scoring. I guess most would be tempted to throw up "Rachel's Song" or "Love Theme" (Hell, just about any track would fit the thread title, really) -- but I'll contribute "Memories of Green" to associate with the previous cue by Trevor Jones. This was (and still continues to be) a score that I would enjoy lulling to sleep with every night. I plan on playing it for my children too.
Good night fellow FSM-ers. I've probably destroyed the servers with all of these YouTube video posts but I wanted to share some lovely music with you all. Take care and happy listening!
To Nuts score- Thanks alot, you have given us fine music to listen too, feel welcome to send us more our way, with board members like you i am glad i started this thread, for at least 2 reasons. One- It gives us all the chance to hear good music from other peoples favorites, which is very imformative and 2 it goes against the silly myth about genre music.There is much fine sweet, nice music that has come into this world through sense of wonder films, This is indeed a truth, just like any other genre and sometimes maybe more.
Willard-71- Alex North- such a touching main theme melody played at the beginning credits and the end credits. Where is this music?, matter of fact lately the film itself has been on the obscure side, has not been on cable in many years, DVD?
