FAVORITE MOVIE/TV SOUNDTRACKS

  1. Gattaca
    By Michael Nyman. Beautiful orchestral score -- evocative and inspiring.
  2. Battlestar Galactica
    By Bear McCreary. Gorgeous, minimalist style pieces. Especially love "Passacaglia" and "Dreilide Thrace Sonata No 1"
  3. Up
    By Michael Giacchino. Sweet, sad, and cheerful.
  4. Chocolat
    By Rachel Portman. European/gypsy style. Makes me want to bake.
  5. Benny and Joon
    By Rachel Portman. Simple and sweet.
  6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    By Jon Brion. Sparse and thought provoking.
  7. 500 Days of Summer
    By Mychael Danna and Rob Simonsen. A ukulele tinged meditation on naive love.
  8. Chaplin
    By John Barry. Tragic and old-timey.
  9. Europa Report
    By Bear McCreary. Haunting.
  10. Almost Famous
    Compilation. A wonderful curation of classic rock.
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy
    Compilation. Also a great collection of fun, classic rock.
  12. Chuck
    Okay, this one isn't an official soundtrack, but more of a playlist of all the songs used during the show. Such a great blend of indie, classic rock, pop, and the occasional Christmas song.
