EDIT: Oh, well, Stu edited his post to add a video with a rendition of the original theme, so there you go!

Heh, you got there before me.  I edited the original from Ocarina into my post.

I hate how often this glues itself to my subconsciousness. It's basically a poor man's Gremlins theme, but even a poor man's Gremlins theme is still FUN.

Well that was clever of the composer. Neat little easter egg.

Confession: Any post with a Galaxy Quest quote in it will automatically get a like from me. Just how it works, I'm sorry.

I played Richard III. There were five curtain calls. I was an actor once, damn it. Now look at me. Look at me! I won't go out there and say that stupid line one more time.

 

By Grabthar's Hammer... what savings.

The main theme from Kamen's Robin Hood the Prince of Thieves has been playing in my head all morning.

The Doctor! Ah yes. There was a Who episode with Robin Hood in it. 

 

So I guess Murray Gold is on the list.

 

It's a pity the BBC didnt do anything with Robin Hood. Such a classic British story. Wonderful opportunities for great music.

My favorite Miyazaki film but not my favorite Hisaishi score (although I do love it).

It's for sure my favorite Miyazaki film. It feels the most complete to me. I'm not to well versed in Hisaishi though.

I'm ont a huge fan of the score as heard in the film (it's all over the place in terms of styles, moods, etc., most cues are too short for Hisaishi to develop his ideas...), but I do love the symphonic version that was created for the Hisaishi Meets Miyazaki Films album (which is the version posted by Hawmy here), which includes most of (all?) the highlights of the score. The choral theme (at 02:39 in the video below) is also much more elegant and pleasing on the ears here than the rather grating child singing heard in the film:

 

 

Big fan of the requiem theme too (heard at 05:42 in the video Hawmy posted), even if it is heavily inspired by (or "a rip-off of", whichever you prefer) Haendel's Sarabande.

Yes that is how I listen to Nausicaa when the mood takes me.  My favorite Hisaishi tends to be his lighthearted mode.  Kiki's Delivery Service is my most listened to of his scores.  Love that one.

It's hard for me to chose my favourite Hisaishi/Miyazaki score, though my Top 3 would probably feature Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. One thing's for sure: that last one includes my favourite Hisaishi cue, The Boy Who Drank Stars. Absolutely stunning music. Hisaishi at his finest!

I want to live inside "Town With an Ocean View."  How that music makes me feel is how I wish I could feel all the time.

In all fairness Händel's piece is based on a well-known melody of Folia (Portuguese), La Folía (Spanish), also folies d'Espagne (French), Follies of Spain (English) or Follia (Italian) which is one of the oldest remembered European musical themes. Over the course of three centuries, more than 150 composers have used it in their works. So I wouldn't hold it against Hisaishi for joining the group. ;) 

 

Oh and Williams' Double Trouble has been playing in my head in its various variations all morning. Especially this little faux-Baroque ditty preceding it in Hagrid the Professor has been particularly persistent.

So it's a rip-off of a rip-off? It's just keeps on getting better and better!

Here is James Newton Howard's take on the same musical idea:
