Sorry, Mario. I was so busy of how to treat AC/DC, that I missed to put in the title number. Thank your for pointing out. Normaly I wouldn't have put AC/DC to a score-list. But AC/DC have made this music especially for the movie, so I count it to the score. In general I'd say it would be a part of the soundtrack, which isn't wanted in this poll suggestion. But it's ok like this. I corrected the last pick, sorry for that.

Btw: The intro of A Shot in the Dark

I think it's better than the cover version. Best it's from the original Mancini Soundtracks.

Thank you, Brijesh. Your picks are in option #10.

@Brijesh​ 

Brijesh, if you wanted to put '2001' on the list because of it's classical music - that doesn't count. Only music, which was especially composed for the movie. Like in the example of 'Maximum Overdrive' like in the example from Mario. ACDC composed the music in the movie exactly for the movie at that time. for '2001' I've put in György Ligeti, because it seems he composed some tracks for the movie.

For 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', it seems there is a track composed for it. It stands in the trivia, but I'm not really sure, if it was composed earlier and used later, or composed for the movie. The other soundtracks were composed before, e.g. "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" and are no score.

Ok, found it. Butch Cassidy is back on the list. The Composer is Burt Bacharach (yt).

There was a soundtrack by Alex North, but it wasn't used in the '2001', so what you have put is fine. 

Burt won Grammy and Oscars for that one. 

Glad, you're fine with the choices, otherwise it would have been almost impossible for me to distinguish whether the songs were made or just used for the movie. 😄

Changed option number four. It had the misleading term "Various Artists", which made it more easy, but I looked at it. It was Wendy Carlos who arranged some classical music tracks for the synthesizer and also performed them. So I completed the information.

Also changed option #1 (my option): pick number five is 'Forrest Gump' now.

@Breumaster,

For your consideration:

@dan_dassow​ 

Dan, I have to ask: Was the music composed for the movies or did they exist before? I thought the music for 'Fantasia' was composed by classical music composers decades before. Was there at least a synthesizer re-arrangement of single tracks? Then it would fit. I'd love to put your suggestion on the list, but can't bend the rules I set up for all users. If it doesn't fit because of the mentioned criteria, I would appreciate your suggestion with other Scores. Thank you anyway for your interest. :D

@Breumaster,

I will suggest another list, since it appears that the majority of the film scores are not original music.

= = =

All of the music for Fantasia (1940) was composed prior to the film. However, according to Fantasia (1940) Soundtracks https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032455/soundtrack :

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565
Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach
Orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
(1897)
Composed by Paul Dukas
Partly re-orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)

Rite of Spring
(1913)
Composed by Igor Stravinsky
Partly re-orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)

Jam Session Sequence
(uncredited)
Played by members of The Philadelphia Orchestra without a conductor

Bach Goes to Town
(uncredited)
Composed by Alec Templeton

Dance of the Hours
(1876)
from the opera "La Gioconda"
Composed by Amilcare Ponchielli
Partly re-orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)

A Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria
"A Night on Bald Mountain" (1867) Composed by Modest Mussorgsky (as Modeste Moussorgsky)
"Ave Maria, Op. 52 No. 6" (1825) Composed by Franz Schubert
Orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)
Both Works and Transitional Material Arranged by Leopold Stokowski (uncredited)

= = =

There appears to be no original compositions in the film.

= = =

My Fair Lady (1964)

Soundtracks

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058385/soundtrack

All of the music was originally composed for the 1956 Broadway musical.

= = =

Fantasia 2000 (1999)

Soundtracks

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120910/soundtrack

All of the compositions were made prior to the film. There appears to be no re-arrangements.

@dan_dassow​ 

Thank you for explaining so widely, Dan. I let 'Fantasia' and 'Fantasia 2000' count, because the music got specially arranged and orchestrated to fit into the movie and because of the transition music in both movies, which was very well done by Stokowski and Levine. Just 'My Fair Lady' seems to be 1:1. Maybe you got a better pick for #4, Dan? I would appreciate that.

Thank you, Dan. 

I've exchanged 'My Fair Lady' with 'Doctor Zhivago'.  Your option stays.
