I tried getting this down to a Top 10, then 15, then 20, and have settled on 30. There were just too many movies that I wanted to write about and highlight. There are a few ‘cheats’ where two movies are conjoined as they are thematically similar and I feel they deserve to be together.

Stressing over what not to include, and what to exclude, and getting upset when I forget about that single one after the fact.

So here it is, My Top 20 Scores/Soundtracks of the Decade, complete with YouTube:
