Morricone of course, and as runner up I'd pick John Barry's marvellous work on Goldfinger.

Isaac Hayes - "Truck Turner" is one of my favs and he also stars in the movie which is mother fucking brilliant.

Since Morricone was already picked, I'll go with Bernard Herrman for his work on "Taxi Driver" and numerous Alfred Hitchcock films.

-John Williams, for his "Star Wars" themes as well as the simplicity of "Jaws" which made me take showers instead of baths...but then again, Bernard Herrman's "Psycho" shower theme with those screeching violins made me just want to take sponge baths for the rest of my life. :shock:

Also partial to the main theme to "On The Waterfront"...Leonard Bernstein

I agree with bernard hermann, hitchcock and bunuel are teid for number 1 on my directors list, and bunuel movies don't have much music so it goes to bernard.

In fact, I love the music used in all the Kubrick films I've seen so far.

"Run Home Slow" and "The World's Greatest Sinner" have some pretty good music, too.

I agree with Bernstein, Morricone, Mancini (Pink Panther, people?), Isaac Hayes (good one Johnny) and Mothersbaugh (do you people realize how many soundtracks Mark Mothersbaugh's done in the last 20 years ???) (:
but nobody's mentioned Rodgers & Hammerstein
without which movie soundtracks wouldn't be a thing at all . . .

Damn, this is hard. I guess I gotta say Howard Shore for all his great David Cronenberg scores.

Hermann and all the work he did with Hitchcock. The score for North by Northwest is perfect. Imagine if FZ had had the opportunity to work on one of those films....Full orchestra, lots of rehersal time.....
