    You know, LOTR has a fantastic score, but I have to say that I wouldn’t know what the actual “LOTR theme” would be. There are many great and recognizable themes throughout, but is there one for the LOTR as a whole? And if so, which one?

    This was exactly my thought when voting. I was torn on whether to include it or not because of it, but I eventually decided that whether it’s the Fellowship theme or Shire or Minas TTirith/Gondor, or any others, I’d choose it regardless. Consequently, one of my favorite pieces is the Rohan theme, and that’s the one of the ones that’s certainly NOT the main theme considering everything else. Same goes for Faramir theme with the panpipes.

    The other two I chose were Ghostbusters and Raiders of the Lost Ark. I wanted to choose Star Wars, but in the end I, like another poster there, think that while it’s fantastic and powerful, the theme itself really pales in comparison to things like the Imperial March, Duel of the Fates, Battle of the Heroes or Binary Sunset. If any of those had been chosen (heck, even the Cantina theme!) I’d have put it over Raiders. Ghostbusters had to be in there because of the memorable lyrics and fun tune.
