Best Soundtracks?


Long Haired Freaky Guy

Long Haired Freaky Guy

Simple topic really, and since we have one of these in the Gaming area, it's about time we had one done here. Quick search brought nothing back, so excuse moi if it has been done before.

 

Anyway, my first one has to be This Is England.

 

 

The lyrics just fit the mood of this scene perfectly.

 

Big Fan Of Toots & Maytals, and this song showed the lighter side of the film.

 

This alone made me nearly cry at this scene.

 

Second film has to be Pulp Fiction, mainly due to:

 

 

 

And this song from Reservoir Dogs:

 

 

 

And last up, basically all the songs from Juno, yet this one obviously sticks out for me.

 

 

 

What style of music would that be classed as? blush.gif

 

Yes it doesn't have to be full soundtracks that you like, but if I just put 'Songs' then all you would have to do is name your favourite song since they're all used in films these days.

Don't forget the Pulp Fiction intro (the 'pump it' song) and Jungle Boogie.

And from the top of my head, the ones I think made an impact:

 

  • Space Jam - I believe I can fly
  • Rocky - Eye of the tiger
  • Godfather - Theme song
  • Top gun - Take my breath away
  • Goodfellas - The piano version of Layla

Can't think of anymore atm.

The opening song from the Original Wicker Man.

 

 

Not really OST but this might be the best use of The Bunny Hop. It's from 'Cry Baby'.

 

 

Edit:

So as to include this classic

Gantons Most Wanted

Even though its not a movie i do feel that TV show Chuck deserves a mention in this topic because of its arrangement of music throughout the shows episodes fit the scenario's and situations taking place. Whether its Tim Jones synth instrumentals or tracks of well known artists it really is flawless.

The Bill, the second theme it had! Fab it was! 4/4 then 7/4. Corker.

Only a drummer could have composed that.

This honestly needs to be played at my Wake.

I'm currently loving The Social Network soundtrack, it's great music for pretty much anything like walking, relaxing etc.

 

Especially the track Intriguing Possibilities is one of the stand outs.

No mention of John Carpenter's work? Escape from New York, The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13, etc. His

 

Basil Poledouris's Conan the Barbarian.

 

I absolutely love Ennio Morricone's work. Once Upon a Time in the West is by far my favorite score of his.

 

Johnny Greenwood's score to There Will Be Blood is absolutely wonderful.

I really like the original score and soundtrack developed for "28 Days Later"; I feel like it just suits the atmosphere of the movie so well. Songs like "East Hastings" by Godspeed You Black Emperor, "AM 180" by Grandaddy, and of course the signature score for the movie, "In a House-In a Heartbeat" by John Murphy are my favorites.

 

I also have to mention the kick ass soundtrack to "Dazed and Confused" as well. cool.gif

I have most of the Carpenter/Howarth collaborations in my soundtrack collection. They include:

 

--"Halloween" (original CD release and the 20th Anniversary Score)

--"Halloween II"

--"Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (original CD release and 25th Anniversary Score)

--"Escape From New York" (original CD release and 20th Anniversary Score)

--"The Fog"

--"Big Trouble in Little China"

--"Prince of Darkness" (German release)

--"They Live"

"One day I will think of this as just another job. After all, this is what I do."

Easy Rider, man. Great freakin' soundtrack.

Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction each had a superb 'track.

Gotta give some love to Superfly. Curtis Mayfield rocks.

Also anything Lalo Schifrin does. Bullit, Enter The Dragon, Cool Hand Luke, Dirty Harry, the list goes on.

For me, Curtis Mayfield's "Superfly" is the best ever, followed by Prince's "Purple Rain" and Isaac Hayes' "Shaft". Doesn't get any better than that.

As mrpain said, Moon's sountrack is absolutely amazing. Really great.

 

Clint Mansell also worked on the soundtrack for Requiem For A Dream and made the very popular Lux Aeterna. Top Gear loves it very much.

 

 

Michael Andrews composed the soundtrack for Donnie Darko, one of my all-time favourite films, which includes one of my most favourite songs, too.

 

Liquid Spear Waltz is a good one, too, I'm trying to learn it to play on the piano.

One of my favourites.

*Millers Crossing*

I've heard this so many times, just because I left the DVD menu playing, love it though.

 

This is one of my all time favourites. It gives me shivers whenever I hear it and anyone who's seen the film will know what I'm talking about:

Bernard Herrmann definitely deserves a mention.

 

 

I like Vertigo and Taxi Driver but I didn't know who was behind them

 

Also I like Reqiuem for a Dream and The Social Network (obviously)

I'm a bit late on this one, but Black Swan has a wonderful score to accompany it.

Just examining Ben Hur, the Charleton Heston classic from the 1950s, I'm now anxious to see this, I think some films are so notable you are REQUIRED to see them, even The Sound of Music, or Fiddler on the Roof, you younger lot should take the time.

 

And because he's legendary and missed sorely, wanted to share this screen test from the film because of Leslie's spot of acting in it!

It's rare that a soundtrack will invade my private life and become a part of my in-car stereo, but one which I can't stop playing is the entire soundtrack to Nicholas Winding Refn's film Drive. Especially the song College ft Electic Youth - A Real Hero, it contains these 1980s sensibilities which I just love, and if I throw a toothpick in there and some leather gloves, I can pretend to be Ryan Gosling...Not that I would...
