I started listening to soundtracks along about 1960, when Ben-Hur was released, and that score had a profound effect upon me, so my choice for

Number One: Miklos Rozsa

Number Two: Alex North mainly because of his genius at composing some of the greatest processional music ever written ( e.g., Shoes of the Fisherman)

Number Three: Frank Skinner for his profoundly sad and highly romantic score for "Back Street," which to my knowledge has never been released on CD.

Number Four: Billy Goldenberg, mainly for one score, "Red Sky at Morning," again, not out on CD to my knowledge.

Number Five: Lee Holdridge

Number Six: Jerry Goldsmith, everything from "A Patch of Blue" onward thru "The Blue Max", the 1966 remake of "Stagecoach," and even his catchy tango-like "Six Degrees of Separation." But especially for "Rudy."

Number Seven: John Williams for everything.

Number Eight: John Barry for everything

Number Nine: Ennio Morricone for everything EXCEPT that cheesy score to "MIssion to Mars," which is awful.

Number Ten: Nino Rota, mainly for his score to the 1968 "Romeo and Juliet," in which he captured perfectly the beauty of love and the sadness of death.

Number Eleven: Johnny Green for "Raintree County" and especially the track "Search for the Raintree" which has the most beautiful twenty seconds of music I have ever heard.

Number Twelve: Franz Waxman for "The Spirit of St. Louis," and "Sayonara," but most loved for the track "Rosanna" from "The Adventures of a Young Man," which achieves a few seconds of most the beautiful sound you're likely to hear in music, so perfect is it.

Number Thirteen: James Horner for everything, beginning with "Krull,", which was the first CD I ever bought.

Number Fourteen: Dave Grusin for "My Bodyguard," and "On Golden Pond."

I may add some others later, but how's that for a unique list.
A soundtrack fan since 1959.

Frank Skinner and John Williams are really great composers. These people made a lot of really interesting compositions
