Each day i will list one of the 100 favorite film scores i have enjoyed over the years. This is a random 100, no 100 i liked as much as no 1. Picking my favorite 100 was not easy, many i wanted to include but landed in my favorite 1000. You will notice a big diversity in my listings, all decades, many different composers. I listed no more then 3 from any composer.I know some of the films i will mention each day might have been discussed at one time or another, some have not at all . So if you will please be courtesy and understand, it would be silly to leave out the films in my top 100 which have been discuss on this board before. Anyway there is always something new to say from someone about a film score. Again in no preference of liking, here is my top 100.-------------------------------------------------------------------NO 100- Somewhere in time-80-John Barry-A fantastic beautiful score with a lovely main theme and solid romantic cues and pieces throughout the film. One of John's admired scores,the theme has been used often at weddings over the decades. In New York City in the 80's, the score was often played at the Rockefeller skating rink, as people enjoyed skating around the famous rink.

I thought this was going to be a countdown of the top 100 people on the internet who call themselves "Dan the man." A search of the term turned up over 400,000 hits:

Well, those other Dan the man's, are not mine, i know there was a old time Disc Jockey in New York, called Dan the Man, also a DJ on WCBS-FM- New York years ago called Dan Daniels, which had a good ring to it, better then a old time friend of mine who hated his folks because his name was Andy Handy[that hurts]

You might think about changing your "handle" to "Man the dan." There are a lot fewer of them on the internet.

NO-99-THE BLUE LAGOON-80-When i was a kid Nutcracker suite i would play over and over again, in film scores this is my Nutcracker suite. Loved the score from the film itself, loved the soundtrack. Wore out many lp's of this one. From the striking opening credit theme till the sad end notes during the end credits, this was a wonderful touching vibrant score by the great Basil, P---------------REST IN PEACE- BASIL.

Lol.



Dan, can you try and post some links this time, so we can listen to your choices?

Otherwise I've a feeling this is just going to turn into another thread like your "happy birthdays" and "laughter is the best medicine" threads, where you just end up talking to yourself with no-one else contributing.

A long list with similar descriptions isn't really going to encourage me to check out anything I'm unfamiliar with.

Isn't the point of an internet thread so a bunch of people can just talk to themselves while creating the illusion that they're having an actual conversation with other human beings?

To, THE THING- Misunderstanding here , both the happy birthday thread and the laughter thread were threads just for info, i didn't expect much feedback, can't there be threads that just spread info or create a chuckle or offer a viewpoint on why someone really likes about a 100 film scores.Why is there such an attitude on this board.Everyone is trying to cutthroat everyone else, i really feel there are more people who probably have left this board over the years with the attitude the vibes suck here, i got better things to do with my time then the number of people who currently still use the board, For nice guys like MR Kendall, Driving Miss Daisy, etc etc, who have given much time and effort for this venture it is sad.

I'm not sure I'd put Somewhere in Time as low as 100. But then it was filmed here in Michigan so it gets bumped a few places for that reason alone. smile

Ignore the trolls Dan. Life is too short.

I am ashamed to admit I still haven't heard The Blue Lagoon yet. I'll see to this on the weekeed.

Just want to remind folks again, 100 or no 2 or no 80, i don't see one better then the other, these 100 are just equally. Film scores i really liked[three and a half stars and up] out of the thousands of film scores i have heard in my life.

NO 98- RETURN TO OZ-84- A heartwarming sad beautiful score by David Shire, that strips my very spiritual soul by film's end. A masterpiece

One of my all-time favorite scores!

The Bay Cities CD release is a godsend.

That's part of what makes the board great--the privilege of behaving like a mentally-ill street person and all in the guise of film score fandom. If I talk about the '70s in my every day life, I'm arrested; here, those topics just get pounded down by endless speculation and Media Ventures-glorification threads.

Okay Dan the Man, keep the countdown coming...
