The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button by Alexandre Desplat
Track 14: "Sunrise On Lake Pontchartrain"
(link opens in a new window)
This YouTube link was the only thing I could find for Benjamin Button, and it didn't even allow embed. Still, I do have to say that I really like this one. It transports me to another place and gives me calm. This is definitely worth the click.

Changeling by Clint Eastwood
Track 16: "End Title"

Seems like Clint just keeps on surprising me. This tune (the OST's most popular to iTunes) is simple and effective. It reminds me of those Hallmark Hall of Fame movies. Now, I kinda want to go see the movie.

Defiance by James Newton Howard

Again, this is the only media I found of this one. The volume's kinda low, but that's also the nature of the track. I don't really love this one and have to say that this is the weakest one of the bunch.

Slumdog Millionaire by A. R. Rahman
Track 5: "O...Saya"

Track 11: "Ringa Ringa"

Alright, I posted two from Slumdog just because it was the only one I found all the tracks for on imeem. They're high energy with lots of culture/flavor, and I wanted to give you a couple tastes. Both are quite refreshing. I'm thinking that it's either this or Benjamin.

Frost/Nixon by Hans Zimmer
Track 13: "Nixon Defeated"

This nominee is no slack. Zimmer delivers again, and I can totally picture the place and time. But I'm always one for something different. Perhaps I just need to watch the movie for immersion and context. Good job though.
