I've got loads of movie soundtracks, and like them for different reasons, but here's a few of mine:

American Beauty (any soundtrack by Thomas Newman is class!)
Pretty In Pink
Twin Peaks (TV stuff)
The Breakfast Club
...Say Anything.
Betty Blue.
Cabaret.
Singing In The Rain
The Lost Boys
This Is England
Twin Town
Trainspotting
Desperately Seeking Susan
Anything by Ennio Morricone and John Barry is usually a good call as well.

I don't have that many soundtracks but definitely agree with Cari on Pretty In Pink and anything by Ennio Morricone.

And I have to add:

Some Kind Of Wonderful

ah Stand By Me is a great shout, Kenny!

I tend to like a lot of things like The Lord of the Rings soundtracks, just love to have them on in the background, find them really relaxing.

From a more recent film, I really liked the '500 days of Summer' one, although I usually prefer soundtracks that are just music, no words.

Pirates of Caribbean
Lord of the Rings
Dark Knight
Kill Bill
Kick Ass
Toy Story films

There are probably loads of films where I like the odd song in them, but those are ones that come to mind straight away.

I went to friends funeral a few years back and the song as everyone entered the chapel was Pippins - Edge of Night from Return of the King , so eerie but a beautiful song .

I would agree with Swanny aswell Some kind of Wonderful is great soundtrack

OMG! I've got that film on DVD, I thought no one else would've heard of it! Very Happy all the '80s teen films had good soundtracks though - even if they were full of cheese. The music often helped the films do well.

I should've also added Grease and the original Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack - brilliant.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? gave Celtic-rooted, bluegrass folk music a long overdue shot in the arm.

Good calls on Grease and Rocky Horror, love both of them. Let's draw a veil over Grease 2 though eh? censored Laugh

Cheers Kenny. I've always had a soft spot for "cowboy rock". Blaze of Glory, Wanted Dead or Alive and Dry County are some of my favourites. Wink


Just remembered this too. If this doesn't make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, then frankly you have no soul.

Post by Il Gialloblu on Thu 25 Oct 2012, 5:17 am

Whilst the music in films like Gladiator, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars etc is great during the films, I only listen to it at certain times.

Namely, during the films.

Classical music, whether written for a 19th Century ballet or a 21st Century Russell Crowe film, ultimately bores me after about five minutes.

What I do like however, and I appreciate not everyone does, is acoustic guitar-wielding singer songwriters such as Stephen Fretwell, Tom McRae, Liam Frost, Malcolm Middleton, Conor Oberst et al.

But not Jack Johnson. He's awful.

So when I saw the film Once last month, it had probably the perfect soundtrack for me. Glen Hansard's songs (one of which won an Oscar) weren't just good for a film.

They stand up by themselves and have led me to seeking out his other work - be it solo, with Once co-star Markéta Irglová as The Swell Season or with his band The Frames. Most of it is great.

If you haven't seen Once by the way, give it a watch. I'm here commending its soundtrack but as an added bonus, the film itself is pretty good too.

Have to say I can't take much more of the terrible Adele Skyfall song, damn awful, I reckon it gets a lot of airtime because, well, it's Adele.

I'm the same, it's flippin woeful.
Few Bond style strings and build up with her then warbling over the top, preferred the Jack White Aleysha Keys monstrosity over this (though its still better than the Madonna one).

By default Amadeus & Immortal Beloved.

I don't have a particular favourite but I made a playlist for my car of the John Williams classics mixed in with some Elfman and Zimmerman.

No greater moment than the end of a working day, turning the ignition and Dual of the Fates starts blasting out
