Greatest soundtrack ever


Good movie made much better by an amazing soundtrack.

Yes. I became obsessed with Gabriel's Oboe when I saw The Mission. I thought: what a soft, calm and beautiful melody it conveyed. The music is out of its world, fully deserving of the recognition it's received since.

Heard it LIVE a few weeks ago by Ennio himself. It's now (30 years later) one of my favorites soundtracks. I had tears when I heard the choir perform live.

RIP Ennio, sad news

For me the movie is just about okay, but the breathtaking photography of Chris Menges and Morricone’s magnificent score make it seem much better than it is. One of the greatest movie soundtracks ever, surely.

Can somebody help me, i was listening to Ennio on random when this song played at straight away i was driving my self nuts trying to figure out which film i heard from

I googled it and all that comes up is this film but i swear i have heard it in another rather big film, i am thinking a bit of a good will hunting type young mans journy type thing but it won't come to me.

Anybody have an idea
