Best Movie Soundtracks -1990s
13. Apollo 13
Stories of space travel need heroic soundtracks, and James Horner’s poignant, almost understated, score was the perfect accompaniment to this story of Apollo 13’s failed mission to the moon. Director Ron Howard used 1960s pop songs alongside Horner’s understatedly patriot score that encapsulated the American spirit of adventure. The 1995 Oscar-nominated album also features solos by vocalist Annie Lennox and Tim Morrison on the trumpet.
