    Hey guys, it's been awhile since I contributed anything to the forum. I think we can all safely say we've enjoyed a least a piece of music from TV, Film, Video Game, etc. I wonder what everybody's favorite soundtracks is. It can be from any source of media, case in point TV and movies. It doesn't have to be a whole album either, a few pieces are fine.

    I guess I'll go first to set the criteria. I've enjoyed pieces from: Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Last of the Mohicans, The original Call of Duty.

    I think that's a good start.

    Wow...that's a tough one...so many choices!

    Last of the Mohicans was a great choice, my favorite from that is the "Promitory"

    But the sound track from Gladiator is good, so is the sound tracks to Spawn and The Crow and so is the sound track to Green Card

    But who doesn't like the theme song to Hogan's Heros! (my all time fav) :thumbleft:

    "The Last of the Mohegans" - The best, hands down

    And the "Apocalypse Now" soundtrack because it's actually the music AND the dialogue

    Also parts of "The Fifth Element" soundtrack...

    The only problem with Rammstein is I speed and want to invade somebody.

    I actually made a CD a few years ago called "Cinema Sounds" with some of my favorites which included.....

    Theme from "Rockford Files"

    Theme from "Shaft"

    "KIll Bill Vol. I" (where Lucy Lui walks into her nightclub with her entourage)

    Theme from "The Prisoner"

    "Lay Me Down" from "We Were Soldiers"

    .....among others.

    Lately I want to add the score from "The Book of Eli". Very haunting.
