    Ask the Mountains?

  6. Kevm

    October 23, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    Ask the Mountains is missing, but everything he has produced is pure magic.

  7. Gustavo A. Gutierrez

    October 23, 2017 at 8:29 pm

    A lot to mention, like, Jerusalem., last of the Mohican.,ask the mountains.,billitis,aurora.,, etc etc

    • M.J

      November 27, 2017 at 12:36 pm

      Last of the mohicans isn’t his. It’s by Trevor Jones.

    • DR

      February 4, 2018 at 6:03 pm

      ‘Bilitis’ is by Francis Lai. NOT Vangelis.

  8. Al Esmaiel

    October 23, 2017 at 8:41 pm

    “Opera Sauvage”?

    Love 1492 Conquest of paradise . It’s my favourite relaxation soundtrack. It’s a masterpiece

    • Keith

      October 27, 2017 at 10:22 am

      I agree ….still a epic soundtrack movie score that never dates

  10. Elizabeth Malucelli

    October 23, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    1492 Conquest of Paradise

  11. Bob

    October 23, 2017 at 9:15 pm

  12. Lucía

    PRELUDE ❤

  13. Henry ten Napel

    October 23, 2017 at 9:59 pm

    I’m missing “Spiral” for beïng absolutely iconic 😉

  14. Kostas Loudaros

    October 23, 2017 at 10:29 pm

    Of course , all those are masterpieces but : The most romantic, heartbreaking song of all time “La petite fille de la mer” ,is absent though.

    • Andre Zpatz

      October 30, 2017 at 1:37 am

      Agree

  15. SpaceEagle

    October 23, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    Nothing from Albedo 0.39? Pulstar, Alpha?
    Theme from Antarctica, main titles from The Bounty? All if these deserve to be on this list

  16. Farshad

    October 24, 2017 at 2:01 am

    La petite file de la mer, conquest of paradise, himalaya, little prince, spiral, elsewhere, Antarctica, song of seas, alpha, monestary of la rabida

  17. Mike

    October 24, 2017 at 2:33 am

    10?! Just open the nearly endless list to top 100 to start. I just play whichever one happens to be my favorite at the time. And I love introducing my 5th graders to the music of this awesome man.

  18. Martín Zamudio

    October 24, 2017 at 5:00 am

    My favorite song is antártica

    • Octavio

      November 28, 2017 at 12:56 pm

      Most of them I like, but if I have to choose that woulf be, 12 o’clock, L’enfant

  19. Sandy

    October 24, 2017 at 7:42 am

    Fields of coral, La petite fille de la mer, albedo 0.69, anything by Vangelis is a masterpiece actually

  20. GIorgio Grasso

    October 24, 2017 at 10:37 am

    I see you basically picked those songs that performed better on a commercial standpoint. Because most of the real good stuff is actually missing, like others have pointed out: He-O, A Song, Albedo 0.69, Spiral, La Petite Fille De La Mer, 1492 The conquest of Paradise; many others; and this is actually remaining still in the “iconic” realm for Vangelis. And without getting into the Aphrodite’s Child discography…

  21. Henri

    October 24, 2017 at 12:38 pm

    Theme from Antarctica, Voices, La petite fille de la mer 3,4,5 in top

    • Marta

      March 23, 2018 at 10:50 am

      Yesssss. Siiiii. Falta la Petite fille de la mer.

  22. Jack R.

    October 24, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    L’Enfant from Opera Sauvage!

  23. Hauzz

    October 24, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    I absolutely miss Intergalactic radio station and Metallic rain from Direct – famous excellent

    • Larry Feldman

      November 26, 2017 at 8:50 pm

      Was also wondering why there were no tracks from Direct

    • Jim

      December 20, 2017 at 7:53 pm

      Metallic Rain is the best music track in the universe!

  24. Jerome

    October 24, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    My favorite is Irlande from the album Opéra Sauvage

  25. Gary W

    October 24, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    By far my favorite Vangelis song is Memories of Green. It’s actually on two of his albums, See You Later, and the Blade Runner Soundtrack. Whichever you pick, from one these or from anything he’s created, it’s going to far and above anything else anyone else has ever done.

  26. Rich W

    October 24, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    My absolute favorite is ‘Hymne’. I play it every day

  27. Ed

    October 24, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    Nothing about his music seems less than that which the most famous composer’s throughout history have produced. His choice of “instrument/s to produce the sound is irrelevant (but fascinating). His music ushers in a beauty and timelessness which can open the eyes and heart to non-material riches available to us all. In addition to those pieces mentioned already, I also love Prelude & Monastery at La Rabida.

  28. nionpa

    October 24, 2017 at 9:45 pm

      I have almost everything from Vangelis, to begin with “Fais que ton rêve soit plus long que la nuit”, and even have the non-allowed “Hypothesis” and “the Dragon”. Just missing Missing and Elektra and so….and Aphrodites Child.

    • Mark
