Which Vangelis electronic score do you prefer; Chariots of Fire or Blade Runner?

 

Both the scores and the films are undoubtedly iconic and great, but I personally prefer Chariots of Fire over Blade Runner, in both categories.

Chariots of Fire's main theme is so overplayed that I just cannot vote for it. Never seen the film or heard the score in its entirety.

BLADE RUNNER wins both categories any day of the week. One of my alltime favourite films and scores. But CHARIOTS OF FIRE is damn fine nonetheless.

Blade Runner, without question. Although I was introduced to Vangelis' sound via the Chariots of Fire album (and grew to love it), Blade Runner's music just exists in perfect symbiosis with the images. It's almost like Vangelis left a part of his nervous system with that score. Too bad only Chariots of Fire received an isolated score :(

 

I also love Missing! That main theme works like gangbusters
