Soundtrack to the good good movie "This Is England," which made me cry.

Soundtrack the increasingly-irrelevant-but-still-bothersome film "Romper Stomper," which was a faked WP "band' fronted by the director and his brother or something. Stirring stuff, in a creepy shiathead way.

The movie "Decline of Western Civilization, Part 1." It's a rocknroll movie, so it IS the soundtrack.

This is the only thread that I've felt the urge to troll.

PS- there should be a lot more David Bowie stuff up here...didn't he do soundtracks and songs for like a googillion movies?!

Tron: Legacy.

Although for me, it's the exact opposite. The Carlos score from the original is very memorable, but not the Daft Punk score from Legacy.

Personally, I'd pick the Goodfellas ST over Casino. The ST for The Departed sucks, save for Dropkick Murphys.

One of my absolute favorites is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Avoids a lot of the cliched music of the era, and the familiar stuff it does use (Somebody to Love, Get Together) is used very well. The opening use of Combination of the Two is excellent.

Super Troopers, man, Super Troopers. I'm not thinking original score so much as "awesome collection of music that really seems to go with the movie". That soundtrack is just an awesome listen from start to finish. Seriously, "Bad Apples" by Royal Fingerbowl owns. I'd put it second to O Brother, Where Art Thou? as far as collections of music, but it's good. The soundtrack to The Apostle was also great, imo. The soundtrack from The Big Lebowski worked great with the movie, imo, but it's not an album I'd listen to.

For original movie scores, well, Ennio Morricone pretty much craps on everyone else. The Mission, The Untouchables, plus redefining "western movie music" in collaboration with Sergio Leone. I've listened to the soundtrack from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly more times than I can count. Yes, John Williams, great. Whatever. how many films has Morricone scored? 400? 500? It's obscene.

2012-04-01 03:33:22 PM  
Shortlist? More like Shortbus.

Although no-one else gets two mentions here it would be churlish to deny Quentin Tarantino a second bite. In truth, even when his films disappoint (Kill Bill 2 for instance), the soundtracks are still of the highest quality. Pulp Fiction could have clearly been chosen, but when it comes down to it Jackie Brown's choice of songs is just stronger. Bobby Womack's Across 110th Street sets the tone perfectly and this is followed by the disparate likes of Johnny Cash, Bill Withers, The Delfonics and Foxy Brown. Another soundtrack that bears up to repeated listening.

You mean Pulp Fiction, the movie that's literally in the same row Jackie Brown, wasn't chosen?

Snatch Bandergrip: Personally, I'd pick the Goodfellas ST over Casino.


One thing about Scorsese's work is not just that he picks good songs, but how he uses them. Some of his most memorable moments, from Johnny Boy arriving in Mean Streets to De Niro deciding to whack everyone in Goodfellas, to finding the bodies are about the music accompanying them working in perfect harmoney.

The Billy Batts scene has "the boy I love", but the opening note has an ominous quality about it. You think something bad is going to happen, but then it breaks into it the main part of the song and you kinda forget about it, but when you watch the movie again, that note triggers something along the "oh, shiat, it's the Billy Batts scene".

I was gonna say Zabriski Point, cause it's got Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead, but then I listened to it. Other than Jerry Garcia's long solo noodling piece, it's not very good.
Now, FRIENDS, by Paul Buckmaster (credited to Elton John)... THAT's a great soundtrack.

Tron, Garden State, Reservoir Dogs, O Brother, Hedwig, Judgement Night. All soundtracks that eclipsed the actual movie.

I didn't mind disco or SNF when it first came out. Months later when McCartney and KISS and every other song on the radio had to have a disco beat I gave up on top 40 and switched to NPR and our local AOR-leaning country station and never looked back.

Hmph...I didn't think Highlander even had a soundtrack album. I thought all the songs were just included on the Queen "Kind of Magic' album...

I've always been partial to the 'Return of the Living Dead' soundtrack.

Thought this was going to get missed. It's a *great* soundtrack.

Surprised no one mentioned "Until The End Of The World"

Missing from list.


Well, son of a biatch, I was damn near certain I was the only owner of that particular soundtrack. I even like all the main songs on there done by the complete unknowns. Also has a pretty good Fixx song on it, IIRC.

farkeruk: One thing about Scorsese's work is not just that he picks good songs, but how he uses them. Some of his most memorable moments, from Johnny Boy arriving in Mean Streets to De Niro deciding to whack everyone in Goodfellas, to finding the bodies are about the music accompanying them working in perfect harmony.



That's exactly why I can't stand Scorsese. In his later years he's so often been lazy, telegraphing emotions with song choices. They don't complement the story and action; they subsume and eclipse them. I respect Scorsese as a film historian (even if I find his style of speech excruciating), but he's become a bankrupt director.

aiiee: Surprised no one mentioned "Until The End Of The World"



It's a good one, but I prefer the mood on The End of Violence (also Wenders), which I'd mentioned earlier. Felt I had to choose on or the other.

Absolutely shiatty movie with a great soundtrack - French Kiss.

I'm torn because I hate the movie, but Grease should be on the list.

And I don't care how much hipster cred this costs me, but Viva Las Vegas has an awesome soundtrack.

50 Coolest Movie Soundtracks doesn't include Grosse PointPointe Blank. Not an April Fool. Subby's doing a dirty protest

Hey Subby, Pointe is spelled with an "E" on the end. I grew up there, it's a bit of a touchy subject. Also that movie was awesome.

drayden: Skimmed through this one. Took too long for someone to mention Lost Highway.

Here to add this

[download-movie-soundtracks.com image 300x300]

Yeah, yeah. Whatever. I still listen to it every now and then.


Filter and the crystal meth are enough to make a to 50 list alone. Wanted to add the crow and also wanted to say drive's soundtrack (as well as the movie) was awful. I can hit two keys on a keyboard too.

Glad to see Repo Man got a mention in this tread. Here's another good Alex Cox movie soundtrack...

Another nod to Repo Man.

And also, Cruising w/ Al Pacino. Pretty underrated movie, EXTREMELY underrated soundtrack. William Friedkin had his finger on the pulse on the NY streets, for sure.

No love for The Wedding Singer? Practically every tune on that one conjures up a scene in the film, and it also simply plays as a love letter to the 80s.

My friend won one of Ryan Gosling's 'hero' Scorpion racing jackets from picture wardrobe. Your argument is invalid.

Agreed.

Bonus: "Josie" was voiced in the songs by Kay Hanley (Letters to Cleo, Palmdale, etc.)

Bathia_Mapes: I love Goblin. IMHO, their soundtrack for Deep Red (Profondo Rosso) (new window) is even better than "Suspiria".


Oh, I'd include all of Goblin's soundtracks on my 10,000 item master list. I'd even place 'em near the top. They're all topnotch IMO.
Currently, I'm listening the most to their score from Nonhosonno (I Can't Sleep)/a> (new window)

runcible spork: How about a couple from Takemitsu?

Jose Torrés (new window)
Woman in the Dunes (new window)

Nice. Thanks for the introduction.

Another longtime fave is the score for Jodorowsky's "Santa Sangre" (new window)

The film is highly recommended too.

Ditto all around with:
The true version of "The Wicker Man" (new window).

Nope. Only option you have is DVD, I think. I still have my grainy VHS tape. :) I especially love the fact the movie pulls no punches at the end.

I haven't seen it since it was in the theaters, but it's one of the few movies that I went to see more than once. I loved all the little throwaway things, like the banners saying "OH! OH!" in the department store at the end.
