Other great composers are Gabriel Yared, and James Horner.

It is always great to watch a movie and fall in love with the music that you MUST go straight from the theatre to the Music shop to buy the soundtrack. That was the case for me and 'City of Angels'. Alanis Morrisette's 'Uninvited' was honestly the song that got me to buy the soundtrack, but Gabriel Yared had four tracks on it that have since then become my favorites.

It kind of makes you think, what would movies be without music.
