In 2012, Variety magazine published the list of the Top 11 greatest movie scores (it was originally supposed to be a Top 10) from the poll's answers of 40 working composers, giving their three all-time favorite scores.

Which of these 11 scores, as voted by professional movie composers and ranked in order, is your personal favorite?

The two I frequently find myself relaxing/studying/vibing to are the themes from Chinatown (1974) and Taxi Driver (1976), I'm surprised the latter didn't make the cut on this one. I also love the theme from the The Apartment (1960).

many are good, but i would have to give it to jerry goldsmith for 'chinatown'

he not only complimented the film, but also created a presence of atmosphere that was necessary to it as well...

The poll is live. Only 100 votes so far, but Once Upon a Time in the West is ahead of Star Wars.

I'm sad to see "The Mission" so lowly ranked, it's certainly one of the greatest music ever composed for a film
