Awesome Music / Alien

  • Jerry Goldsmith's score for the first film is fantastic, contributing to its eerie and tense atmosphere. The gorgeous main theme manages to be bleak, desolate and terrifying as well as romantic and sweeping at the same time.
  • James Horner's action score for Aliens can be heard in countless trailers (points for only having a few weeks to do it and no finished film to write for).
  • Elliot Goldenthal's score for Alien 3, especially "Adagio", is the best part of the film.
