John Williams: Ten Best Movie Soundtracks
6. E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial (1982)
At the height of his career and his collaboration with Steven Spielberg, John Williams produced his heart-warming soundtrack for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial - arguably the most enchanting of all Williams' scores. The music earned him his fourth Academy Award and has remained a popular piece in the composer's live concerts ever since, evoking a magical and more innocent era at the movies. Spielberg respected Williams' contribution so much that he altered the final edit of the film to fit the music (and not the other way round as is usual).
