Yet Another List: Most Films by Composer

Just for fun, I've tabulated a list of composers whose work I've heard in the most number of films. There aren't really any surprises here; just the big names you'd expect too see. Naturally, John Williams takes the top spot, although by a narrower margin than I thought. With any list like this, the most prolific artists will emerge on top, so it's not an indicator of quality (although I do enjoy these composers) as much as quantity.

Here's my top 10:

John Williams – 45
Jerry Goldsmith – 42
Hans Zimmer – 33
Danny Elfman – 32
Howard Shore – 28
Elmer Bernstein – 28
Carter Burwell – 26
James Horner – 25
James Newton Howard – 24
Alan Silvestri – 20
