Peter Gabriel - Passion
Across 110th Street
by Daft Punk.
Once Upon A Time In The West
The soundtrack to "A film about Jimi Hendrix" (yeah, it's a documentary I know) . Easy Rider is pretty good, Apocalypse Now, the use of The Doors "The End", chlling..
compilation: Pulp Fiction
Probably Curtis Mayfield's Superfly but I do appreciate Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn and The Pink Panther.
Don't like stand alone soundtrack albums. Ultimate movie/ complementary film score :
The Good The Bad And The Ugly.
A couple that I can think of at this moment:
We Have a Winner!
Actually, one of Gabriel's Best Albums-IMO.
Lost In Translation
Into The Wild
On my short-list for sure!
Cracking album, thanks for the 'heads up'.
Richard Thompson's Grizzly Man
I'd say this movie ("Maximum Overdrive") definitely sucks, but its AC/DC soundtrack ("Who Made Who") is great!
You are welcome! Cal has been one of the "bedroom soundtracks" for my wife and I for many years.
Really dig a bunch of the ones already mentioned. Just wanted to add the soundtrack to the movie Chocolat. For those unfamiliar with it, it kicks off with a Django Reinhardt song, followed by really evocative original score music by Rachel Portman.
In no particular order:
Blade Runner (Vangelis)
To Sir With Love
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 1&2
The Great Escape
The Thomas Crown Affair (1968 & 1999)
I'll make the distinction between compilation soundtracks and those soundtracks composed for a film.
Three compilation soundtracks stand out: The Mambo Kings, The Harder They Come, and American Graffiti.
I think out of all Ennio Morricone's huge output, there are two standouts: Days of Heaven and The Mission.
While John Williams may be best known for the Star Wars soundtrack, his music for Empire of the Sun was quite good as well.
And how do you rate a soundtrack that has other singers dubbing the songs for the actors? The most famous ghost singer would be Marni Nixon, who sang Natalie Wood's songs in West Side Story, Audrey Hepburn's songs in My Fair Lady, and Deborah Kerr's songs in The King and I.
