Greatest Movie Scenes/Music Combos

A great soundtrack can often elevate an average movie. 
A great scene accompanied by great music often makes for an unforgettable experience.

 

Here are my top choices for what I consider the greatest examples in cinema.
Feel free to share yours.

 

1. Once Upon A Time In The West - Harmonica vs. Frank (Sergio Leone / Ennio Morricone)

The undisputed king. The most perfect marriage of sound and vision ever committed to celluloid. Sergio Leone’s ballet of death, meticulously orchestrated to the sound of Ennio Morricone’s unforgettable ‘Man With A Harmonica’.

Never fails to send shivers down my spine.


2. 2001: A Space Odyssey - The space station (Stanley Kubrick / Johann Strauss II)

 

3. Blade Runner - Opening scene (Ridley Scott / Vangelis)

 

4. Once Upon A Time In America - Death of Dominic (Sergio Leone / Ennio Morricone)

 

5. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service - Ski chase (Peter Hunt / John Barry)

 

6. Kill Bill Vol 1 - The Bride vs. O-Ren Ishii (Quentin Tarantino / Santa Esmeralda’s “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”)

 

7. The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - Final Duel (Sergio Leone / Ennio Morricone)

 

8. Star Wars Saga -  practically every scene that features Darth Vader and the Imperial March (George Lucas & Co. / John Williams)

Nice choices @R1s1ngs0n !

While reading your lead, the GB&U final scene immediately leapt to mind (of course) but you nailed that.

So another fave flik of mine many probably won't pick;  😀

 

I guess I should mention;

Miklos Roza: Composer/Conductor

Just exposition of the scenery and atmosphere but with the wonderful soundtrack by Kenji Kawai:

Makes me want to Drive around at night: Nightcall by Kavinsky

Hans Zimmer - ...to die for

 

Bob Dylan - The times are a changin' beautiful intro scene

 

Watchmen had awesome use of music !

Besides the opening scene I particularly like the first fight sequence with Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable” playing in the background. A very unique choice that paid off beautifully.

Even if I used this movie already, I love this scene and the calming/chilling music in preparition for the finale:

 

Also love the Memoirs of a Geisha Soundtrack by John Williams

Have to include some classics as well:

Not really a score but I think it should be added:

Nothing from Snowpiercer? I’m shocked 😉

 

 

 

Lots more to come and a really hard call  between this The No Bullets  and the final scean between Curtis and Nam 

 

The Thing and Escape from New York is a tough decision too .

To Continue

Escape From New York 

 

This is in your bones piling on the pressure

 

 

 

For A Few Dollars More 

 

Although The Good The Bad An The Ugly Is more iconic the pacing as this plays out is bliss 

 

 

The Thing 

 

ALL OF IT  however no arguing this piles on the terror of what they are faceing 

 

 

 

Snowpeicer 

 

HAS TO BE ( appologies for the F word at the start )
