10. Romeo and Juliet
Six years before he won the Oscar for his work on The Godfather II, Nino Rota won great acclaim for his work on two of Franco Zeffirelli's Shakespeare films - Taming of the Shrew and Romeo and Juliet. The song 'What is a Youth?' is one of the most-loved moments of Rota's Romeo and Juliet scores, and has been adapted in to numerous versions sung in English and Italian.
