Completely agree on the Bram Stoker's Dracula score. I love it all and the love theme is so beautiful, so haunting.

Johan Söderqvist's gorgeous score for "Let the Right One In" was the first one that came to mind.


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.)

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.

Has SBD mentioned Charles Bernsteins A Nightmare on Elm Street ?

Also Joe Renzettis creepy score to Child's Play!

And of course the lovely music box theme to Bob Coberts Burnt Offerings!!

One of my Holy Grails!!

Could The Fountain be considered within the boundaries of Sci-Fi? I think so, and I'll offer up some of Clint Mansell's beautiful music from the film...

More for Sci-Fi: Daft Punk's terrific score for TRON: Legacy, "Solar Sailor:"

This one's a bit long, but it's one of my favorite cues ever. From Dario Marianelli's score to the Sci-Fi/Thrilller V For Vendetta -- "Valerie."

... which leads into the equally beautiful and uplifting "Evey Reborn."

Elliot Goldenthal's lovely and epic "Adagio & Transformation" from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within...

From Inception by Hans Zimmer, the finale piece "Time"...

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."

I've always loved Russell Garcia's theme for the primitive Weena in George Pal's The Time Machine adaptation. It's rather lovely, don't you think?

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! big grin

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.

What about 'Requiem' from Akira, performed by Geinoh Yamashirogumi?

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?

Indeed! I love Geinoh Yamashirogumi and I wish I could hear them utilized more in film. They have an incredible, impeccable back catalog that is perfect for inspiring me.
