Top Ten Movie Soundracks

Happy New Year, Chaps!

A couple of the blogs I follow have compiled lists of their ten favorite bits of movie soundtracks. It sounds like fun, so I will join them.

You will notice that I like period dramas. 

Note: The tracks are not listed in order of preference.

1. The theme from the 2008 version of Sense and Sensibility. It's the first 35 seconds of this video.  Then there's the kinda sad piano bit, and then another good theme after that. 

2. The theme from the 2009 version of Emma.  I happen to know that Liam, Head Phil's sisters like this piece, and now nearly every time I hear it, I think of them.

3. I've Seen Hell from the 2004 version of North and South. The best part is toward the end.

4 and 5. Test Drive and Forbidden Friendship from How to Train Your Dragon.

6. The theme from Little Dorrit.

7. The theme from the Keira Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice. 
Here's the link to the video, since I cannot seem to find it on the silly Blogger YouTube search thingy.

8. I am the Doctor from the 5th season of Doctor Who. Not a movie, I know, but I love this piece.

9. The theme from Pirates of the Caribbean.

10. Septimus from Stardust

Bonus bit:
11. Fairground from Penelope.

There's a really good chance that I've left out some great pieces.  The soundtrack from the new Star Trek movie is great, but I don't know of a specific track that I like. 
Check out Liam's list and Erin's list too.

What are some of your favorites? 


  1. Great list! I love a lot of the songs from Inception and Lord of the Rings. For Christmas, I got the piano sheet music for the theme of Pride and Prejudice! It's such a great film-score. :)

    1. Thanks! I haven't seen Inception yet, but I have heard parts of the soundtrack, and I did like what I heard.

      Oh, what fun sheet music to have! Maybe I'll add that to this year's Christmas list. :)

  2. I'm not even going to listen to the Emma theme. It'll get stuck in my head forever. Wait... it just got in anyway.

    I was surprised that you remembered about my sisters! Thanks for the link, too.

    1. Sorry about that.

      Sometimes I have a surprisingly good memory. If only I could get it to remember things better for taking tests. And you're welcome!

      (Don't tell my sister I started a sentence with "and". She'll be on my case forever.)

  3. Ach, the music from Pride and Prejudice is just so beautiful. And I absolutely adore the Pirates and How To Train Your Dragon soundtracks.

    Also, thanks for linking to my blog. :)
