???????? psycho? Jaws? taxi driver? Harry Potter?

Lol... This list is a disgrace. How about “Saving Private Ryan”, “E.T.”, “Close Encounters”, “Jaws”. In other words, it should have only consisted of work from John Williams.
Dude... Unbreakable? Terminator 2: Judgement Day? Com'n man
John O'Neill (1 day ago)
How did "Last of the Mohicans" not get at LEAST an "honorable mention"!?

Vasan Drake (26 days ago)
Although it's a good list but where's Harry Potter
Satine8541 (27 days ago)
I would of replaced the Superman score with Jaws. You hear those notes from Jaws, you know there is danger lurking somewhere. I love the Superman score but I personally feel that Jaws is more Iconic than Superman.

How about John Barry - Somewhere in Time

Star Wars Theme and the Super Man theme are mildly similar

I see Michael J. Fox in this movie and I forget he was this straight-laced hyper-achiever Alex Keaton on Family Ties.

Schindler's List, Blade Runner more than Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park.

Great list. Probably would swap out Jurassic Park with Lawrence Of Arabia but all great picks.
Sharoon Sardar (1 month ago)
come on where's mission impossible, pirates of the Caribbean, the last of mohicans, harry potter?
Michael Fitzgerald (1 month ago)
How can you cut down so many great scores over so many years down to 10? It's an impossible task. Yes I agree that most of these are worthy of mention but there are many others, as the comments show, that are left out. Not to mention that all these scores are very current. There are many other scores from way before these movies that are as recognizable as these current ones. I really am beginning to hate any "Top, insert any number, iconic, insert any category, list. Its just an exercise in futility and everyone always say's "where is ______?" We all have things we like and we feel neglected when they aren't in one of these lists. I am going to stop looking at them altogether. And that's my take on it.

The themes for Midway, A Bridge Too Far, Darth Vader's Imperial March, The Great Escape, The Colonel Bogie March, & Jerry Goldsmith's Star Trek: The Motion Picture scores should've been added.
Sami de Jong (1 month ago)
Lord of the rings should be 1
Joseph Sabogal (1 month ago)

Lets be real, although a lot of these were more iconic, LOTR sounds better than all of them. James Galway played in it too.
Charlie Bonner (1 month ago)
What child put this together? Indiana Jones before Jaws or The Godfather? Once Upon A Time In America? The Mission? Watch a couple of more movies beyond the 8 - 12 bracket.

Kronos Unveiled from The Incrdibles
Spencer Swart (1 month ago)
Without all due respect, MoJo, go f*ck yourself. Ennio Morricone should be on number 1 for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Number 2 Once upon a time in the West, 3 a fistful of dollars, 4 Pirates of the Carribean, 5 for a few dollars more, 6 once upon a time in america, 7 Lord of the Rings, 8 Star Wars (hate the films, love the music), 9 Indiana Jones, and 10 The Godfather

I've seen Jurassic Park, and it's a theme I barely remember. As far as I'm concerned, you could take that and Back to the Future off the list to make room for The Sea Hawk by Wolfgang Erich Korngold. Heck, Elmer Bernstein's theme to The Magnificent Seven is probably as "iconic" as any of the themes on this list, including Star Wars.
Tobias Hørsted (2 months ago)
Bullshit! LOTR is the best! You just put Star Wars as #1 because of the nolstagia
Công Nguyễn Đỗ (2 months ago)
Requiem for a Dream? I watched the movie just because of the score!

LOTR soundtrack is better than Star Wars in my opinion
Filimon Galogavros (2 months ago)
Made by the Vienna Philarmonic Orchestra .
Filimon Galogavros (2 months ago)
Imperial March by John Williams should definitely be on the list .

Psycho, Lawrence of Arabia, Once Upon a Time in the West, Gone With the Wind, etc.

We interrupt this John Williams top 5 to show you James Bond. Now back to your regular list of John Williams.
Goutam Mondal (2 months ago)
Good bad and ugly should be the number one
Wilson Hex (2 months ago)
I don’t think ten was a high enough number...
ImR0nBrgndy (2 months ago)
The list def is filled with iconic themes from classic films. Each of them instantly recognizable by most people ( except maybe millennials )
ImR0nBrgndy (2 months ago)
Molossus from Batman Begins
ImR0nBrgndy (2 months ago)
I could have sworn LOTR Lighting of the beacons would be on this
Jonathan Joestar (2 months ago)
Pirates of the Caribbean - He's a Pirate

R Islomzoda (3 months ago)
*WARNING: THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST **_WatchMojo_** VIDEOS!!!* Why would they kick out the themes of: 1) _Pirates of the Caribbean_ 2) _Harry Potter_ 3) _Mission: Impossible_ 4) _Requiem for a Dream_ 5) _The Pink Panther_ 6) _The Lord of The Rings_ Only 3 on the list seems to be the correct

Star wars!
If Star Wars isnt one of the right ones, i'll destroy this planet
Wait, wheres Pirates of the Carribean? Harry Potter? The Avengers? Good thing Star Wars was #1. But i was expecting these themes to be in there. Crappy List.
VonWenk (2 months ago)
I remember "Driving with the Top Down" from Iron Man more than the theme to The Avengers, whatever that may have been. I even remember the Predator theme more than that, and I wouldn't put that on this list.
Josiah Baughman (3 months ago)
You didn't even include Lord of the Rings?! That's a crime among top 10's, music, Youtube, only on humanity if STAR WARS wasn't included, now I agree with number 1 and others but totally disagree with almost every position they're in come on!
Bill C (3 months ago)
Disappointed no Elmer Bernstein on the list. Who hasn't heard "The Magnificent Seven" or "The Great Escape" and been drawn into those movies? Hard to pick between Elmer and John Williams.
Jonathan Langway (3 months ago)

Actually you're wrong about the Superman March theme not being included in the new film. Listen closely to the soundtracks of DvS:DOJ and Justice League, the composer included hints of Williams' original Superman theme elements at various moments in the soundtrack... as well as hints of Elfman's original Batman soundtrack.
Naveen Chess (3 months ago)
pirates of carabian
Brage BS (3 months ago)
I think Lord of The rings deserved a spot on the higher end of the list.
clayton Breshears (3 months ago)
Worst list I’ve ever seen them do... Superman and James Bond needed to be way lower or off the list and jaws and LOTR need to actually be on the list. Who ever made this one sucks XD
ian polando (3 months ago)
**** star wars. **** it. so many people think that start wars is better than Lord of the Rings. the **** it's not! how dare you, watchmojo.com, give LOTR an honorable mention when it is the best in film history????? **** you too! and you used "A Knife in the Dark" as an intro. How DARE you? I was entirely unhappy with this video. The Lord of the Rings is known FOR its soundtrack!!!! you need to do a redo or something because there are A LOT of people who are very angry with the outcomes. VERY. This isn't a request.
