I Like to Score is a compilation album by American electronica musician Moby, featuring music of his that has appeared in various films. Every track on the album has appeared in films released in the 1990s, except for the song "Go".[citation needed]

In the United States, this was Moby's last album to appear on the Elektra record label, with the exception of Songs 1993-1998, which Elektra hastily released in 2000 to try to capitalize on Moby's newfound success. His successive albums would appear on the smaller V2 Records label.
