The soundtrack of my life..

If there is one thing I love there has to be movie soundtrack/score. It brings the right mood to a movie (or even make a terrible movie tolerable). It can be sad or scary, funny or give you that feeling of anger. Where would the movies be, if it werent for the lovely composers making the perfect sound for it? or the men/woman putting together old songs to fit so perfectly into a new movie?

It's hard to choose, but here is some of my favourite scores/soundtracks (represented by one song from each movie):

Farväl Falkenberg by Erik Enocksson

The Lord of the Rings by Howard Shore

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain by Yann Tiersen

"Sorry, we did not agree to that, that wasn't in the script"

Joe Wright (the director of Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) has teamed up with Keira Knightley once again, and has made this video to raise awereness about domestic violence. I have loads of respect for both of them for doing this (and on top of that; for free). The advert is both affective and disturbing. Take a look:
