This entry will be counted as the entire Harry Potter series (as series are being counted as a single entity for the purposes of the poll). So if you'd like to change this position based on that information, feel free to do so.

What are some of your favorite scores and soundtracks? I'd say the main theme from Psycho and "The Ecstasy of Gold" are my two favorites in terms of original music, and basically anything Tarantino has a good soundtrack. What are some of your favorites?
