Movie Score Makes You Sad#0
Posted: 8/19/04 at 8:36am
The Saddest Music in the World thread prompted me to think of what movie score makes me the saddest.
At the moment "Mrs. Soffel" comes to mind.
Which movie score makes you the saddest?

The grave scene in Forrest Gump and scoring under it makes me weep....and weep.

Issac Stern's solo in Schindler's List is almost more than I can listen to.

The Brooklyn Bridge scene in "Sophie's Choice" is beautifully sad.

i can't think of an entire *score*, but there are moments in Beaches that make me want to open a vein, and the scene in Boys On The Side where Whoopi sings to Mary from the doorway...OY!
Suzanne: I never use catalogs. I'd rather go in the store and see all the salespeople groveling and sucking up to you. Julia: Pardon me, I never knew they were so solicitous at the K-Mart.

Philadelphia: Especially the opera scene. Engrossing.
The Laramie Project: The parade and Angel Action. Wept.
Schindler's List: The entire score is heartbreaking.
The Hours: I love this movie so much because it is so honestly, genuinely heart wrenching. The kitchen scene with Clarissa...Amazing.

"Ice Dance" from Edward Scissorhands always gets to me.

James Horner -- perceived to be the kitsch-meister (see the Bernstein thread) -- wrote a very moving score for "The Perfect Storm."

The Hours puts me into a very gloomy mood...and it's one of my favorite movies. Works both ways.

Eddie Varley got to it before I could. Forrest Gump has the saddest score ever. It is one of my favorite movies of all time.

TITANIC also had a beautiful score that deserved it's Academy Award.

Requiem's score isn't sad, it's downright creepy. I think that it scared me more than the movie did...

The soundtrack for "The Alamo" which was released in April. Very melancholy. Carter Burwell used gaelic themes to underscore the tragic events of that March in 1836. "Flesh and Blood", "What We are Defending", "The Last Night"--and the first & last Battle segments also are particularly moving.

Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?

Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings - effectively used in the film of "The Elephant Man" and "Platoon", and a million other places...

"Return of the King"'s score is beautifully sad, especially Sir James Galway's flute solos and "Into The West." And the score for "Schindler's List."

The John Barry score played at the end of MIDNIGHT COWBOY--not the Harry Nilsson song. Indescribably sad.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

You guys beat me to them all. I agree on Forrest Gump and Titanic. Titanic's score is beautiful.

Sorry to stray a bit, but if you like TITANIC and have a real good sense of humor, you must listen to the Forbidden Broadway Cleans Up It's Act mud flinging tribute to the Broadway and Film versions of TITANIC.
