Beautiful! Bah, was supposed to be a reply to the post with Jerry Orbach. Miss that man.

 

But as to soundtracks: lots and lots of Star Trek including some from the tv shows. The orchestral suite from The Inner Light episode of ST:TNG makes me cry frequently. Lord of the Rings soundtracks are amazing of course. Oohh Disney's Tarzan. So good when I'm feeling downtrodden. Mr. Holland's Opus is a good soundtrack too.

 

There are just too many that I own because they moved me and they help me relive the movies while I'm beading or coloring or working on cross stitching.

Yesterday I posted the Beaches soundtrack as my all time favorite.  Here are 3 YouTube links to:

 

"Under the Boardwalk" - Official music video

"Wind Beneath My Wings" - Movie clip from Beaches

The movie clip still chokes me up whenever I watch.

Cotton's Dream  - from the motion picture soundtrack, Bless the Beasts and the Children (1971), Barry De Vorzon and Perry Botkin Jr, composers.

 

You may also recognize this music as Nadia's Theme which was adapted from this composition and released as a single in 1976. It was also used periodically as theme music in the tv soap drama, The Young and the Restless. 

 

From the soundtrack - Cotton's Dream

The soundtrack of the 1959 epic Ben-Hur, written by Miklos Rozsa. The music was perfect for the mood of the movie.
