Need more soundtracks. Need them now!

Having just started a “normal” 9-5 job again I have discovered I’m in need of more orchestral soundtracks from either films or games. Whilst my iPod has over 70GB of music, a large part of it is unsuitable as it’s with lyrics which distracts me too much or, worse, could lead me to sing along. Which is something no one wants!

I have a lot of film and game soundtracks already and some of them are my favourite things to listen to at any time. Some of those include [listed in order of most frequently played according to my profile]:

  • John Williams – Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, etc..
  • Howard Shore – Lord of the Rings
  • Michael Giacchino – Lost
  • Inon Zur – Dragon Age
  • Hans Zimmer – Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman Begins, etc
  • Murray Gold – Doctor Who
  • Jack Wall and Sam Hulick – Mass Effect
  • Martin O’Donnell – Halo
  • Alexander Brandon – Deus Ex
  • Christopher Lennertz – Gun
  • Nicholas Hooper – Harry Potter
  • John Powell – Mr & Mrs Smith
  • Jeremy Soule – Fable, Elder Scrolls Oblivion
  • Andy Price – Robin Hood [BBC drama]
  • Jesper Kyd – Hitman Blood Money

I need more!

Suggestions, please!

    I do actually have most of those, they just didn’t come up with more than 100 plays, so weren’t included in the above copy/paste of composers.

    Requiem for a dream – terrific film and half of that soundtrack’s awesome. The rest not so much and I’ve never gone through to remove the rest.

    Got uncharted, like Edmondson’s Firefly OST.

    Got Crysis.

    Didn’t like In Bruges.

    Don’t like Dexter.

    Haven’t seen the others so listening to the OST might be weird?

    Downloading the Fountain though, remember watching that ages ago.

    Thanks again!
