This has really been my "Soothing Track of the Year." It just hits a place that puts me at ease and rests my mind to the rhythm and the vibes.



1000% agreed.

What an incredible score huh? Have you heard Rachel Zeffira's score for the Sebastian Gutierrez film Elizabeth Harvest? She is one half of Cat's Eyes. Great score, so I hope you've heard it or I could turn you on to it. Her solo album, The Deserters, is also fantastic.

I'm aware of the solo album, but not the other score. Thanks for the heads-up! Will check it out. It's my favourite score of 2015, and one of my most-played since then.

One of the reasons I can't totally quit this place is getting to discover hidden gems like this, which I'd never heard of before today. I just listened to the album and it's extraordinary. Thanks, guys.

Basil's beautiful "Emmeline" from THE BLUE LAGOON. I especially enjoy this version played by him.

I'm sure, like me, many others listen to their score CDs as a form of musical therapy.
I remember, being much younger, and finding that listening to the End Title from JAWS or the Katra Ritual from STAR TREK III THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK could relieve my stress or bring me to a state of controlled chill (and dramas could feel so much more heightened in your teens/younger years).
There are a great number of score CDs, or individual tracks in my arsenal, that I turn to when things need taking down a notch or two.
ALWAYS, FORT SAGANNE, CINEMA PARADISO, SOMEWHERE IN TIME...
What scores do YOU turn to, in your hours of need?


Mancini's "Sunflower". A beautiful theme with great string writing. Also Morricone's "Cinema Paradiso".

Debussy is also great for music therapy.

Yes, I could mention at least 10 Vangelis albums alone that would fit the bill.

This has been a great discussion and I have enjoyed discovering several works I hadn't heard before. I've put together a playlist on YouTube with several of the selections mentioned here as well as many of my own picks:

Would also like to Add (besides all of Wrestling Ernest Hemingway by Convertino and Islands in the Stream by Goldsmith - re-record version) Fordlandia by Johan Johannson. Not a film score, but amazing and by a great film composer. RIP gone too soon!

Wow, I've been on this track for about an hour now! Thanks!

I’ve always loved this cue from Ry Cooder’s LAST MAN STANDING score. A truly evocative track.

"The Herb Garden" by John Barry from The Lion in Winter. Overshadowed by the main title music, Eleanor's Arrival, the finale, and others, this gentle, wordless cue features the male and female voices contrasting with each other.

I'm sure it's been mentioned but I was watching the film the other day and man, those End Titles to The Rocketeer. *chef's kiss*
