Danger Zone: 5 Great Tony Scott Film Soundtracks

Tony Scott, one of the greatest action directors of all time, committed suicide by jumping off a bridge near Los Angeles this past Sunday. He was 69 and thought to have an inoperable brain tumor.

Many of Scott's films also had great soundtracks, due in part to Hans Zimmer and Harold Faltermeyer.

Separately, those composers scored such Scott films as Beverly Hills Cop, Beverly Hills Cop II and Top Gun, among many others. Sometimes the soundtrack, such as Top Gun, was as popular as the film itself.

Scott will be greatly missed. Here are some of the best soundtracks from his films.
