Added DiffLines:

* Jarre's score to ''Film/{{Dreamscape}}'' sounds alternately mysterious and adventurous, befitting a film about dream manipulation. All of it (except the sax) rendered beautifully on 1980s synthesizers.

''Film/LawrenceOfArabia''. The majestic, exotic-sounding main theme (inspired by one of the main themes from Edouard Lalo's Piano Concerto in F minor) succinctly captures the vastness of the desert, and how it engulfs even the extraordinary things Lawrence and his followers do there.

''Film/DoctorZhivago'', especially the lush romance of "Lara's Theme". Jarre struggled to write a suitable score at first, so Lean told him to take his girlfriend to his mountain cabin in Switzerland and spend a passionate weekend with her. The result remains one of his most unforgettable melodies.[[note]] Although Jarre felt that Lean and producer Carlo Ponti placed too much emphasis on the theme in the final cut of the film.[[/note]] It was later given lyrics by Paul Francis Webster as "Somewhere, My Love", becoming a hit in the United States for Ray Conniff and internationally for Connie Francis.

** Among Jarre's most affecting scores is that to ''Film/TheYearOfLivingDangerously'', which paved the way for further collaborations with Weir.


** Conceptually speaking, Jarre's score to ''Film/{{Witness}}'' shouldn't work as it's played entirely on synthesisers, and the Amish wouldn't go near a synth, and yet it's uplifting without being sentimental.
