I think some of the adaptations have amazing sound tracks!
Which ones do you like?

My favourite has to be P&P 05. The music is great! And some of it so relaxing! And great to listen to as music, without needing the film. Also the songs are so fun to play on the piano!
Fav songs...

Dawn
Stars and Butterflies
Living Sculptures of Pemberley
Postcard to Henry Purcell (the one D&L dance to)
Secret life of Daydreams
Mrs Darcy
Georgiana
Arrival at Netherfield
Leaving Netherfield

Irene | 271 comments Stars and Butterflies, Dawn, Leaving Netherfield and Georgiana are my favourite too. I often play them on the piano!!!
Music is the best part of P&P05! Dario Marianelli did a great job.
I also love Carl Davis music for BBC P&P, the theme is lovely and it makes me want to dance.

Sarah Louise Smith (sarahlouisesmith) Me too ('05 version) - beautiful music, nice when you're in the bath relaxing! They played some P&P music in the Pump Room in Bath when I was there - seemed very apt!

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 139 comments I often listen to it when I fall asleep and it's especially beautiful when you listen to it while it's raining and it puts me straight to sleep.

Rebecca May | 561 comments I've only seen 05 P&P, and 95 S&S, and I absolutely love both of the soundtracks for those.

Anna, thanks for mentioning you listen to P&P music while it's raining - I've got to try that now!

:) Soph, it's cool you have a sleep soundtrack - I need to make one of those, at the moment the only things I listen to before I go to sleep are:
1. Willoughby from S&S 1995
2. Alan Rickman reading Sonnet 130 :D

Lol, it's an amazing list! You have no idea how relaxing it can be listening to Alan Rickman reading a Sonnet. :D But I can't deny the list needs to be just a tad longer. :D

Anne (cinderella16) | 115 comments My favorite music from a Jane movie has got to be Emma 2009. Oh, it was beautiful....my mom and I play The Seaside as a duet on the piano. It's probably my favorite music just to listen to.

Anne (cinderella16) | 115 comments Youtube!!!! Since the sheet music isn't out (at least not to my knowledge), this guy listened to it and wrote it down. He and his wife play it. It's amazing!

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 139 comments You should download the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack (yes, with Keira Knightley)...it's totally worth your time and money!

I can play that one! My favourite one to play. In the soundtrack/piano music it appears as part of the music from the piece 'Dawn' I believe :)
