So not favorite score, not favorite cue, just the melody! I think we can safely say that John Williams is one of the most creative minds of the 20th century (debatably topped by for instance Rach

This takes the cake for me:    

For me, it's a tie between E.T. and me… …and the theme from Omaha Beach in SPR. Not Hymn to the Fallen, the other one. Just something about how simple it is in construction, how stately

...closest to a JW piano concerto movement as we might get (Snowy's theme is a good second).

 

Well, technically his "Scherzo for Piano and Orchestra” is probably as close as we'll get, but, I know what you mean ;)

This one always stops me in my tracks:

But contributing factors are sound design, cinematography, lighting, directing, and acting.  This might be Spielberg's best directed film.  No expositional dialog throughout. Notice how the foreground sound of the mechanics fades as Christian Bale becomes consumed with the aviators obsession..how the grand becomes intimate and personal.  Too many brilliant moments to mention them all out but the music is also fantastic.  And holy shit, how how the camera captured the Japanese empire's rising sun just at the salute which is where the music reached its peak. This is a very underrated film with a fantastic score.

As underrated as War Horse.
