My Composer Of Choice
I wouldn't mind my life's soundtrack composed by Thomas Newman. I became a fan after I began watching HBO's drama Six Feet Under and was taken by how awesome the theme song was. If he still doesn't sound familiar, he did scores for: American Beauty, The Help, Finding Nemo, WALL-E, Road to Perdition, Meet Joe Black, Lemony Snickett to name a few. Its just the right amount of whimsy and atmospheric ambiance to describe the highs, lows and lulls in my life and its just beautiful to boot. I wouldn't mind John Williams but I'm sure that's the obvious pick for everyone, and that his is too epic and heroic for me; although Duel of the Fates would go perfect when I'm washing dishes and sweeping my kitchen.
