Foy Vance's top 5 film scores
- Sep 17, 2012
From the cheesiness of Ghostbusters to the most effective two notes in the history of cinema, Foy Vance guest blogs his top five film scores for Virgin Red Room...
"It's simply too hard to give a list of my top five film soundtracks of all time. That would change everyday!
Here's a list off the top five of my head:
1. A Fist Full of Dollars - When I watched this film, I knew less than nothing about Morricone, but from the moment I heard it, until now, I have never forgotten the melody.
2. Ghostbusters - This soundtrack, from what I can remember, is nothing to remember other than the main them tune…BUT! I can't hear it without feeling happy.
3. The Godfather - This is always floating around the top spot. The score is a masterclass!
4. Hunger - I was working with David when he did this film and I remember his reaction when he first saw it, which was "it doesn't need anything". You can tell that this was his initial instinct, because the score hardly moves, and yet it creates this mad tension! It's sublime.
5. Jaws - Another 70s classic. Those two notes have haunted anyone who's ever so much as put their feet in seawater, since the day the were heard. They are arguably the most effective two notes in the history of cinema!
