I am an English teacher, and as such I use a lot of class time writing. I find that my students are able to work more consistently when there is some sort of background music other than the deafening silence of twenty teenagers writing. I have taken to playing film scores during class time and the kids really enjoy it. They say that it helps them concentrate and I am certainly not opposed to anything that will improve their work effort.
To this end, what are your favorite film scores? Not soundtracks, mind you - instrumental scores only.
I am currently in love with the soundtrack to HBO's The Pacific, which has been on repeat in my room quite often. It's a great companion piece to the Band of Brothers score.
So, GB community - what are your favorite film scores?
