John Williams - As cliche as it is, some of the Star Wars music and the Jurassic Park music are the most memorable songs I can think of from movies, so he can't really be exempt from this list.

Danny Elfman - Lots of cool sounds from this man's brain. Nightmare Before Christmas was amazing.

Carl Friedman - Slavonic Rhapsody No. 2. Nuff said. :p

Percy Grainger - Molly on the Shore, Country Gardens, etc.

Gustav Holst - The Planets. <3

Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre.... and a few others.

Don't really have a special reason other than I find them relaxing to listen to and I can't help wanting to hum along. I first heard Grieg from something on an old 78 record we had about the place when I was about 9. It got broke, and I never managed to find another copy since I can't remember what it was called :(

Where is your mod now?
Iannis Xenakis.

His works are an interesting application of mathematics to music. The result doesn't sound conventional, but it's still structured, has "moods" to it, and is in general not bad.

Wow it amazes me how many artists have been listed I have never heard of...

John williams yes is the classic example of a pro bono professional but a lot of these names I am completely and utterly in the dark with

-Arjen Anthony Lucassen's Ayreon project
-Carl Friedman
-Percy Grainger
-Gustav Holst
-Vincent Persichetti
-Igor Stravinsky
-Paul Hindemith
-Ralph Von Williams
-Thomas Newman
-Niccolo Paganini
-Edvard Grieg
-Steve Reich
-Iannis Xenakis (Actually I hate mathmatics so I would never really listen to his music but still curious)
-Jean Michel Jarre

The others such as danny elfman you have to be living under a rock to not know him, Thomas Newman and James Horner as well.

Still the list of those I have that you all brought up have intrigued me greatly please add a few links so I may check out each composer.

thanks
