    Morricone - I remember digging The Mission quite a bit way back when.

    Mancini's jazzier stuff was the bomb - I still will watch Pink Panther opening scenes/credits over and over again. Victor Victoria? Nuff said. I didn't dig the flowery orchestral stuff like on Newhart, though.

    I like some of Danny Elfman's work. Not always impressed, though, considering I practically grew up on Oingo Boingo. In that same vein, Mark Mothersbaugh's done some cool stuff.



    Mancini at his best:

    I really enjoy most of the stuff Randy Newman & Brad Paisly have done for Pixar. You Got a Friend In Me & Find Yourself is part of my acoustic repertoire.

    Eric Clapton wrote this for a 1980's British TV series. Edge of Darkness.

    Edge of Darkness! That was great. Surfaced on some cable channel again last year. Brilliant to see it again. And Clappo's guitar work was ace.

    Do love Morricone. One recent soundtrack that I really got into is from last year's film Hereditary (recommended if you like horror.)

    The only film soundtrack I can remember actually listening to all of it was that from The Big Easy.
    Lots of different Cajun and zydeco artists.

    Why not? I wish Iggy would take his the deeper part of his voice and retire with some original lounge singer tunes.

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Thomas Newman yet. So I'll mention him. Thomas Newman. I really like the way he uses chords. He used to use some interesting percussion sounds but he doesn't do that so much anymore.

    morricone is great, and hereditary is on my list, because i loved midsommar, which also had great music.



    is that a hardranger fiddle?

    also i saw goblin do the suspira soundtrack last year with the film showing behind them.

    it wasn't the best version of goblin, and whoever color "corrected" that print deserves a kick in the shins, but it was still a good experience.

    i also saw fabio frizzi do the same with the beyond a year earlier at the same theater.
