We are limiting ourselves to one track per score.

These five film music tracks are my top favourites by Williams:

Seven Years in Tibet from Seven Years in Tibet
The 1960's: The Turbulent Years from Nixon
Abandoned in the Woods from A.I. Artificial Intelligence
Funeral Pyre for a Jedi from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Outstretched Hands from Close Encounters of the Third Kind - If I am FORCED to pick his number one track of all time, it would be this one

Just missing the cut: Catch Me If You Can from Catch Me If You Can

What would your top 5 John Williams tracks look like?

    "Hungarian Jungle Rock" is on the expanded edition, which explains why you never heard of it.

    Just kidding. It's a total Chico Hamilton/ Gabor Szabo ripoff, but a fun one.

    No, I was kidding, suggesting that there is a John Williams track you haven't heard because it wasn't on a regular album.

    Someone find me a John Williams track as good as "Far Outside Place" and I will buy you a drink.

    It is the exotica track on "Checkmate."

    I don't have pix on a third-party server.

    Do a google search for "Johnny Williams" and "Far Outside Place" and see what you find. Obviously I'm not the only one who received a copy like this. For example:
