It is impossible for me to distinguish between a cue that hit my senses at an early age (like 5-7?) and a track that's been played to the point of wearing down the grooves. So I'm choosing Herrmann's original soundtrack of his "The Stars" for The Twilight Zone's The Lonely, which was purchased at least twenty years after it aired. Its impact was obviously huge. Still go to youtube frequently for a listen. Lifelong film music memory, ya know?

Diner Jukebox #2
(a Superman II "source cue" - which is similar to "Pick Up The Pieces")

Immediately after that; I play:
Happy Lois Back To Normal / Superman Replaces Stars And Stripes / End Title March

Which is my all time favourite rendition of the "Main Title March" - I know Williams version is the best; but this version seems to be my favourite....

Besides the "Fortress Of Solitude" - and - "The Flying Sequence" -
I play "Lacy's Place" from Superman IV quite a lot - and -
"United Nations - Net Man"

I also love playing from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind:
"The Visitors/Bye/End Titles: The Special Edition"

Then you have from E.T.
"The Rescue & Bike Chase" + "The Departure"...

Seconded by THE BLUE MAX and LIONHEART...
Once again, straight complete album...

I don't normally play individual tracks; much prefer listening to entire scores or suites.

Same here. Which is why I absolutely suck at these 'games'. I've never been a 'cue' guy, I'm always an album guy. Whether it's film music or something else, I put an album on and listen all the way through (time permitting). Most of the time, I don't even know what the track titles are called; don't pay any attention to them.

Jungle Holocaust Boys from Brazil

So much intentionally Wagnerian drama! I first heard this (well, the themes contained in the original suite) when I was eleven and it has sent chills through me ever since.

Second place would definitely be the Ben Hur ouverture.

I found a real big one...

POLTERGEIST Rebirth
https://youtu.be/UFHEt7EkunM
8 minutes of gothic glory...

And of course its direct ancestor:

STAR TREK TMP The Force Field
https://youtu.be/J1LC8KZ4ANU

That's why Jerry Goldsmith is my all time favorite composer.
Serious dramatic and powerful music at its very best.

I do that too, of course, though I play "compositions" rather than albums (a Wagner opera might be 4 CDs long, a Haydn symphony may fill just the quarter of a CD.

But I also pick out certain sections at times, or listen to sections independently from their intended context. I don't listen to all of GĂ–TTERDĂ„MMERUNG every time I want to listen to Siegfried's Funeral March. :-)


In recent years I have discovered shuffling, which I often do while driving (and pretty much only then). I've got about 700 albums on files in my car, stuff I know, and stuff I have not (yet) heard, and I shuffle them around. Classical scores, film scores, some jazz, a few pop recordings... So I don't know what's coming up next, and when it plays I sometimes don't even know what it is since while I have bought the album at one time, I have never heard it before. I then try to guess what album it is from... mostly, I guess correctly, but sometimes I'm surprised. :-)
