Just Wondering what your favorite music for movies are?
My favorites are Navras 16, Tetsujin, and on freeplay music, I like Spyder.
Knowing good movie music might help a few people, including me

Are you talking about music we've used in our films...
Seven Nation Army - White Stripes - Techno Remix
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Quick Death - Transplants
(I've used both of those for action sequences)
AFAIK, those haven't been used in any films ye but I may be mistaken..

Well, I take it you mean what music do i like to put in my movies.. anything that goes really... seems a little silly having "Carmina Burana" during an emotional scene, and "My Heart Will go on..and on..and on...etc" during a fight scene..
If you meant what films do i like the music from, then right now I am into the klaus Badelt soundtrack from Pirates of the Caribean (Massively Overproduced by Hans Zimmer
But for unusual use of music in films, I would recommend..
A Clockwork Orange
or anything with a soundtrack by David Arnold.. Stargate, ID4, The last couple of Bond films (Note, i am not recommending these films.. watch them with no picture and just hear the soundtrack... immense!)

Use proper Filmmusic. Nothing beats an orchestral score...

I ALWAYS use orchestral scores in my films. I can't stand to see a movie ruined by contemporary music. Daredevil for instance comes to mind. By using songs popular today, it will make the movie age even more rapidly. I dont want people to watch one of my films ten years from now and be like WTF is that music?!?! So always go orchestral
You're looking for action music. What goes on in the scene you are looking for music for?

Yeah, throw in a big ol' choir singing in latin and its even better! (i.e. Dies Irae (Ire?) the song used in the nightcrawler opening sequence in X2 or Duel of the Fates from SW Episode I, even though i dont think that last one's in latin).

At the current moment in time I'd love to try and film an emotional piece to Radio by Alkaline Trio. That'd be really great to film. If some of you haven't heard any of their stuff then give them a listen to if you get the chance.
Very good indeed

It would be a good idea to film something to a certain piece of music, something I've been thinking of doing for a while. Probably Chicane's No Ordinary Morning or Ennio Morricone's Chi Mai.

for some reason i find some of the voltaire songs inspiring, but i cant think of a suitable placement for them because of the lyrics.

I was actually listening to a chili peppers song yesterday, one i had never heard before, i may add, and in the first 10 seconds, somehow i just imaged the song in the very begining of the film i'm currently writing and i think it would fit perfectly. it even has some musical changes that work perfectly with what is written on the page. the song is Throw Away Your Television by the chili peppers. Great song too.
I love most of Tarantino's choices for music. Nothing beats his placement of Stuck in the Middle with You in Reservoir Dogs and his use of Misirlou was so well that I think of it as the Pulp Fiction theme. Man, Tarantino rules.

One good classical piece is the Infernal Dance from the Firebird Suite by Igor Stravinsky. That's about the only good classical music song I have. Everything else that's good is from Star Wars. The Lord of the Rings has some good songs, including some chanting, and might be slightly less known to the average person.
Probably not to the people on these forums, though.

im a big fan of Hans Zimmer, he is one of the greats! and The album Leaf is very good too for movie music. check them out. I would also suggest the tiny scores by Clint Mansell (Requiem for a dream) not the actual requiem score but the little charm noises you can download with kazaa and stuff, makes for a very scary movie! its really cool!

Ok guys you have all said some cool music, but the best artist is Hans Zimmer and the best song is from MI2 called "injection" trust me.

I love the kill-bill soundtrack, but I'm afraid if you use any of it...it immediatley looks like a KB rip off. Maybe it doesn't, but to some people it might. Other than that, I love the KB soundtrack.

If you wants some great trailer music with upbeat choral themes here a great song "William Stromburg's - Hiroshima Nagasaki Requiem" from the Trinity and Beyond Score.
Also heaps of songs by E.S. Posthumus are awesome, like "Pompeii", "Menouthis" and "Tikal" they all have great climatic endings.

I love the variation of all E.S. Posthumus' songs. they start off one way and keep building. Kind of like some moby songs.

Generally orchestral "feels" better, IMHO, but look at A Knight's Tale: some people hated the soundtrack, but I loved it.

I totally agree, and it is used so beatyfully in the movie as well (IMHO that is - I know some hate that scene)...
I usually like Hans Zimmer (and his fellows, Klaus Badelt, Trvor Rabin, Mark Mancina, all of former(?) MediaVentures) for more action packed cues (The Rock, Gladiator, etc.). That bombastic style of music has it's place in many of the movies I like...
IMHO. Klaus Badelt ("Pirates"... "Equilibrium" wish I could find that OST) Is really filling up "after" Hans Zimmer... Pirates of the Carribean is running more or less constantly in my car (when I'm alone in it, so I can crank up the volume
You might also want to check out Graeme Revell and Craig Armstrong (esp. Plunkett and MacLean) for some orchestral/modern combinations - They where used quite heavbily a couple of years ago, so they may feel a bit old nowdays... There are still some neat thing on the Kiss of the Dragon soundtrack by Craig Armstrong... More subtle than Hans Zimmer et al for sure but still very enjoyable...
I wish I could make music like that, but I'm trying, so if anyone need some original music, send me a note and I'll see what I can come up with!

Pl made me music for my movie, and it turned out absolutely perfect, even though he didn't see my movie. Definately 'check him out'

Yeah, using orchestral music for films makes it look more professinal too.
