View Full Version : Your favourite movie soundtracks

What are your favourite movie soundtracks? Now you dont have to have liked the movie, just the soundtrack to it.

A few of my favs are, Gladiator (it has to be really), Last Samurai, Da Vinci code and LOTR.

03-24-2007, 06:01 AM
The Illusionist. Philip Glass's soundtrack blew me away the first time I saw the movie. And the second. And the third. (and etc.)

Little Red Barn

The Illusionist is good. Philip Glass is fine.

The Painted Veil.

Pride & Prejudice.


Cinema Paradiso.

Alexander Nevsky.

My all-time favorite is Les Miserables.

300, Gladiator, and Braveheart are good.

I also like the soundtracks from Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek (II and IV specifically)

03-24-2007, 07:54 AM
Has to be 'Lost Boys'.

03-24-2007, 08:40 AM
SUPERFLY by Curtis Mayfield is one of the greates soundtracks ever created.

03-24-2007, 08:44 AM
Blade Runner has a cultish atmosphere and tone to it.

Conan the Barbarian

The Road Warrior

The Long Kiss Goodbye


03-24-2007, 09:05 AM
Don't worry, Jersey Chick...I'm about to be an even bigger dork.


It's also the last soundtrack I've ever bought from a movie...

03-24-2007, 09:08 AM
The main theme for Godard's CONTEMPT by Geoge Delerue is a gorgeous piece of music.

03-24-2007, 09:24 AM
Repo Man
Until the End of the World
'Round Midnight
Bagdad Cafe
Blues Brothers
The Cool World (Frederick Wiseman film, soundtrack by Dizzy Gillespie)
any Loonee Tunes cartoon

03-24-2007, 10:21 AM
Blues Brothers

Poet is correct. I'll also toss a vote towards Forrest Gump.

03-24-2007, 01:21 PM

...and how could I forget, just shown on TCM, a great musical experience:



03-24-2007, 02:20 PM
Possibly Blues Brothers.

More likely; Still Crazy.

Jersey Chick

Don't worry, Jersey Chick...I'm about to be an even bigger dork.


It's also the last soundtrack I've ever bought from a movie...

I have that one - on vinyl!!! I think the last sountrack I bought was from Rocky IV (the one where he fights the Russian guy) - also an LP.:e2thud:

I'd have to add Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables as two of my favorites, but these are the original Broadway casts - not film versions. Do those count?

03-24-2007, 07:31 PM
Gettysburg, Moulin Rouge (both editions), Gladiator, LOTR, Band of Brothers, Armageddon (score and compilation), Baz Lurhman's Romeo and Juliet: Volume 2, Newsies, Shrek, Last of the Mohicans, LA Confidential (score), City of Angels, The Green Mile, North & South, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Man in the Iron Mask, Labyrinth....

I should stop now. ;)

03-24-2007, 08:54 PM
LOTR, Bladerunner, Forrest Gump, The Princess Bride, Shrek, Waking Ned Devine, Local Hero. That's just a few. I love sound tracks.

Vangelis put out a great CD called Vangelis Themes. It includes tracks from Bladerunner, The Bounty and Chariots of Fire, among others.

Melanie Nilles
03-24-2007, 10:02 PM
Star Wars (all the movies), LOTR, original Pirates of the Caribbean (some of the catchiest music themes I've ever heard)

03-24-2007, 10:05 PM

Oooh, I forgot Last of the Mohicans, that has a brilliant soundtrack. The last scene with them running through the forest and up the mountain was very well done.

03-24-2007, 10:21 PM
The original King Kong was a very spooky, moody piece. I can hear it in my head now.

Jaws had that flavor, too.

Oh, Close Encounters--like that one. I'll add ET.

Of course anything John Williams or Danny Elfman does just about covers it, wouldn't you think. Edward Scissor(sp?) Hands


03-25-2007, 12:05 AM
The GOod, the Bad, and the Ugly

and for ones containing mostly songs, The Crow.

03-25-2007, 02:54 PM
Alnost anything by Alexander Korngold - he did several Errol Flynn movies, including The Sea Hawk, Captain Blood and, of course, Robin Hood, which may still have the most complex trumpet solo in film.

03-26-2007, 02:23 AM
Top Gun

03-26-2007, 01:47 PM
Not necessarily in order of favorite:

Chronicals of Narnia
Russia House
Coyote Ugly
Step Mom
Pretty Woman
Sleepless in Seattle
Top Gun
Maid in Manhatten
Ten Things I Hate About You
Somewhere in Time
Mission Impossible
The Saint
Ever After

The Scip
03-26-2007, 03:35 PM
Last Man Standing

03-26-2007, 04:14 PM
Soundtrack? To a movie? You mean you sit and listen to the incidental music that goes on during a scene? Like the du-dum, du-dum, du-dum! of Jaws! or something?

The only soundtracks I've ever purchased were those from musicals. Caberet. Music Man. West Side Story. Wizard of Oz.

03-26-2007, 05:15 PM
Lost Boys gets my vote too.

And Pump up the Volume.

03-26-2007, 06:59 PM
If you mean "like enough to have bought in your lifetime," they would be:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
A Clockwork Orange
Heavy Metal (first animated movie)
Star Trek V
The Deerhunter
Working Girl

03-26-2007, 10:22 PM
I haven't bought a lot of soundtracks and most are OLD

West Side Story (movie)
Romeo & Juliet

Does the original done in the studio Jesus Christ Superstar count as a soundtrack? I got that when it first came out and caused quite the uproar.

Those on vinyl LPs

The Last Samurai
yeah man I got that on CD...whoa technology ^_^

03-26-2007, 10:54 PM
I actually bought three LPs when I was a teen that contained soundtracks that I forgot to mention:

Born Free (Had a wierd crush on Joy)
The Russians are Comming the Russians are Comming.

Oh, almost forgot Neverending Story--nice music.

And I'll be a total dweeb and say Xanadu, only because of Olivia skating around in that shredded skirt, and not very well either, like she was damn close to pitching forward, hitting the deck and knocking her teeth out.


03-26-2007, 10:56 PM
I love John Wayne movie soundtracks. I own not a one. My birthday is 1 day before ScarletPeaches. Please allow time for delivery.

03-27-2007, 08:14 PM
All the Star Trek soundtracks, mainly because at the time we had a very active Klingon group. Yes, I've gone to conventions in complete bumpy-head and leather armor, even marched in parades as such. Also, for some strange reason, I love the 'Tank Girl' soundtrack. 'Almost Famous' and 'Dick' are other favorites, for that retro mood. Love the 'Footloose' and 'Grease' soundtracks, but I'm afraid to buy them. If I dance around the house that much, my cats will laugh until they need tiny oxygen masks. And those are expensive.

03-27-2007, 08:16 PM
oh, and the theme from 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,' although I mainly hum it while driving to family reunions.

Mud Dauber
03-31-2007, 08:00 AM

I'm such a dork.

Don't worry, Jersey Chick...I'm about to be an even bigger dork.


I think I've got you both beat...

Valley Girl!:D

Also, Purple Rain, and I Am Sam (I love everyone's renditions of the Beatles' tunes)

03-31-2007, 08:02 AM
I personally like the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack... and of course GREASE...

here's one for you..my wife has the ROCKY III soundtrack on vinyl... and the FM soundtrack too.

03-31-2007, 10:56 AM
Days of Heaven (Ennio Morricone, among others)
anything else by Morricone
A Map of the World (Pat Metheny)
Southern Comfort (Ry Cooder)
Paris Blues (Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn)

03-31-2007, 11:31 AM
Yeah, well I'll totally dweeb mysefl out and add The Little Mermaid, only because I interviewed Jodi Benson for my newspaper, and she did some voice-overs for me. Heh.


03-31-2007, 02:48 PM
Cinema Paradiso (which also happens to be my all time favourite film).

And The Mission. Pretty much everything written by Ennio Morricone.

Oh and Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. Great soundtracks.

03-31-2007, 03:45 PM
Mo Better Blues. Round Midnight.


04-02-2007, 02:02 AM
Glory, Gettysburg (I & II), Last of the Mohicans--Gettysburg and Mohicas are from the same composer--Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Road to Perdition. For more fun - Wayne's World :)

Also just bought the 300 soundtrack, which is effing awesome.

04-02-2007, 06:11 AM
The Big Easy
The Commitments
Lost Boys
The Big Chill

04-02-2007, 06:40 AM
Most anything by Hans Zimmer - Esp. the Batman Begins soundtrack

Elfman is also great - Esp liked the Corpse Bride soundtrack and this new Serenada Schizophrena album he has out

04-02-2007, 06:49 AM
I've never really been a fan of movie scores by themselves, but I have to agree that Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman are both great. I especially like some of the stuff Hans Zimmer did for True Romance.

In terms of a soundtrack consisting of album tracks, I didn't like Underworld at all, but the soundtrack is excellent.

Alex Bravo
04-02-2007, 07:10 AM
I've got you all beat. I actually liked High School Musical!!!

I'm 39 years old and I still can't believe how much I liked it. My young sons, 7 and 10, kept asking me to watch it and I kept putting it off until finally, it came on and I had to sit and watch it with them. For some reason it really touched me and I got hooked on it. Since then, I've bought (for the boys of course) the CD, the DVD, taken them to see the actual Disney tour and last month we went to watch a local middle school production of the show.

Now that they have me humming and singing all those songs, I got them back this weekend. We watched the Buddy Holly Story and now THEY are constantly singing "It's so Easy," "Maybe Baby," "Oh, Boy," "Peggy Sue," and "That'll be the Day."

04-04-2007, 07:31 PM
Pretty much anything my James Horner works for me. His music is beautiful, and perfect for the film.

Legends of the Fall
Apollo 13
Mask of Zorro
Legend of Zorro

etc etc...

Though I will admit, and point out, the most recognized and famous movie theme song to date is the Star Wars intro.

04-04-2007, 07:43 PM
Batman (from '89)
The Crow
Lost Boys
The Breakfast Club

I also enjoy the original soungs from the movie Top Secret! Val Kilmer singing "Skeet Surfin'" is classic.

04-04-2007, 08:19 PM
What are your favourite movie soundtracks?

At the moment, 300 is rocking my socks. There are already two songs I want to choreograph a dance for (as if I didn't already have a million things to do.)

I'm also mad for the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I'll be dancing to Davey Jones in June. Yay!

04-09-2007, 02:43 AM
Queen of the Damned
The Crow
Last Action Hero
Interview with the Vampire

04-09-2007, 10:25 AM
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for sure. Star Wars, LOTR, Jurassic Park, and Chronicles of Narnia are all excellent. I really like the music from Dragonheart, even if the movie isn't as good as I thought it was when I was a kid. Spiderman has some good music. Anything by James Newton Howard goes into my music collection, so I won't list off all his scores. The Lion King ... let me see. I know there's this one obscure movie that had a soundtrack I really liked, but I can't remember the title. I'll post later if I figure it out.

04-10-2007, 08:41 AM
Anything by Thomas Newman - Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty, Meet Joe Black, Cinderella Man.

I really like John Powell's music for the Jason Bourne movies (esp. Supremacy).

Trevor Rabin (Armageddon, Deep Blue Sea) has some good stuff too.

By the way, my wife thinks I'm a freak because I'll name the composer as soon as the music starts. Movie scores are about all I'll listen to when writing.

04-10-2007, 09:08 AM
Movie soundtracks are my favorite kind of music to listen to, period.

By the way, another good soundtrack (which iTunes still doesn't offer individual tracks from) is Kung Fu Hustle.

04-12-2007, 03:41 AM
Definately The Garden State Soundtrack. I've never even seen the movie, but friends of mine saw it, got the soundtrack, and gave it to me. It's what got me into The Shins. They are an amazing band, but I'd say much better live than in studio.

04-12-2007, 03:51 AM
In no particular order:

Pirates of the Carribean
Electric Dreams
Ruthless People
War Games
Back to the Future

04-12-2007, 08:45 AM
I love Chicago and Happy Feet.

and the following Disney films:
Robin Hood
The Aristocats
The Jungle Book
Lady and the Tramp
and, especially Fantasia

04-18-2007, 10:53 PM
Silent Hill, hands down. I listen to mostly game soundtracks but the OST from the Silent Hill movie was too good to pass up. Can't wait until the sequel comes out. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a close second.

04-19-2007, 01:00 AM
Almost any important theme by Hans Zimmer
Gladiator, King Arthur, Backdraft, Crimson Tide,The Rock

or James Horner
several Star Treks, Titanic, Rudy

and of course John Williams

The Commitments!

05-26-2007, 06:14 PM
I've just watched Black Hawk Down again today (one of Ridley Scott's better films) and the soundtrack on this movie is extremely good. I've also just dug out the original music from the War of The Worlds (not the new film) and uploaded it to my mp3 player. That is one fine album. And the music from Crimson Tide aint hald bad either.

Danger Jane
05-26-2007, 06:55 PM

05-26-2007, 07:10 PM
It isn't instrumental, but I'm enjoying the heck out of the "Spiderman 3" compilation.

05-26-2007, 08:38 PM
Anything by John Williams, but Danny Elfman and his Nightmare Before Christmas was pretty cute.


05-27-2007, 03:56 AM
All of the Star Trek movies
Flight of the Navigator
Babylon 5 TV movies w/ Chris Franke composing
The Mask of Zorro

05-27-2007, 08:03 AM
Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Magnolia, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Pretty much anything by Michael Nyman. Several Disney films, but Beauty and the Beast, Jungle Book, and Alice and Wonderland are my faves.

05-27-2007, 08:14 AM
Good thread!

Geez ..... Among others:

Out of Africa
Boogie Nights
The Hurricane
O Brother Where Art Thou
Saturday Night Fever

05-27-2007, 08:15 AM
Mine are a good portion of the above, especially:

Pride and Predjudice
City of Angles
Top Gun

06-02-2007, 05:10 AM
Both Kill Bill films have wonderful soundtracks.
Amélie is also one of my favourites.
And Forrest Gump and Moulin Rouge would be up there.
From older films anything by Ennio Morricone is hard to top

06-02-2007, 06:07 AM
The soundtrack to Hook is excellent, too.

As is Last of the Mohicans.


Deadbeat 007
06-03-2007, 01:02 AM
Nightmare Before Christmas
Batman Begins
Cinderella Man
Star Wars
pretty much every major Disney movie from 1989-1998
Fox's Anastasia
Saturday Night Fever


Donnie Darko
Spirited Away

Can't forget those!

06-03-2007, 10:38 AM
Don't listen to them.

Claudia Gray
06-03-2007, 06:16 PM
I think "The Mission" soundtrack by Ennio Morricone is not only a brilliant soundtrack but just some of the most beautiful music I've heard, ever.

I am greatly enjoying the soundtrack to "Pan's Labyrinth" right now as well.

The scores to both "Interview with a Vampire" and "Sleepy Hollow," with just a bit of "King Arthur," were my background music for writing Evernight.

06-04-2007, 11:22 PM
I was very aware of the soundtracks to A Life Less Ordinary and Out of Sight while watching the films, and went out and bought them the next day. Others that I love and that have stood the test of time are:


and for particular songs,

Top Gun

More recently,

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

One of my favourite albums is David Arnold's Shaken and Stirred: The James Bond Project, which is new versions of several of the Bond songs. I like his soundtrack work more often than not - he also did the music for the 2000 version of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), which is another favourite.

06-04-2007, 11:23 PM
Bull Durham

06-04-2007, 11:27 PM
I bought the 2-disc Gladiator soundtrack this afternoon and I've listened to it three times already. :D

06-07-2007, 12:23 PM
The Hunger.
All that lovely, moody Shubert and Bach!

06-10-2007, 12:45 PM
Let's see, from what I can remember:

Lord of the Rings: All of them
The Matrix: All of them including the instrumentals
The Gladiator
A Beautiful Mind

06-10-2007, 12:52 PM
Heaven & Earth (1993)

07-04-2007, 12:26 PM
The Phantom of the Opera
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
The Piano
Moulin Rouge!
Star Wars

LOVE "Cry of the Celts" from Braveheart

L'Oiseau Noir
07-04-2007, 01:49 PM
I like the soundtracks for LOTR, Moulin Rouge, and the Phantom of the Opera. Sweeney Todd the soundtrack is also very brilliant in my opinion, though it's technically not a movie... oh, and I also like the soundtrack for Chicago. Pirates of the Caribbean also had a pretty good score of music; really fit the swashbuckling, fantastical goodness the movie conveyed.

07-04-2007, 03:05 PM
James Horner is my ultimate fave composer in the world although I've been loving his older stuff more than the recent. He ties with the awesome Angelo Badalamenti. I LOVE collecting movie soundtracks which actually helps me get in the mood to write. Among my faves are:

The Star Trek Films
Mulholland Falls (and Drive ;-))
The Day After Tomorrow
Bend it Like Beckham
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me & Series Sdtrks
Witch Hunt (although I can't find it anywhere, grr)
Gia (ditto above)
Chronicles of Narnia
The Matrix Trilogy
The Star Wars Trilogy
Superman The Movie
The Dark Crystal

I know this is for movies, but since the games feel like movies I'll go ahead and add the Silent Hill game soundtracks which I can't listen to loudly at night by myself to this day. :tongue But seriously awesome pieces of music & white noise.

07-05-2007, 12:43 AM
Singles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles_%28soundtrack_album%29) is my favorite. It's not soundtrack-y in the traditional sense, I guess -- no grand orchestral pieces or anything -- but it's a great collection of songs.

OneTeam OneDream
07-26-2007, 07:47 PM
Pulp Fiction (Listen to it weekly)
Resevoir Dogs (Stuck in the Middle is just outstanding and fit so well)

The best soundtrack to a movie ever......

Queen of the Damned. Pick it up. Listen to it. Love it.

OneTeam OneDream

07-26-2007, 08:49 PM
Harry Potter & tPoA and the Mists of Avalon.

07-26-2007, 10:18 PM
"Blues Brothers"

07-27-2007, 05:19 AM
Lotr, of course.
The Passion of the Christ, I've found, is the best music to write to, especially if something creepy is going on.
Beauty and the Beast
Love Actually
Pride & Prejudice (2005) - gorgeous

And how has no one (that I've seen) mentioned "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" For serious.

07-28-2007, 06:20 AM
Here are mine:

Pearl Harbor
Romeo + Juliet
The Punisher
and some others I can't think of off the top of my head.... :)

07-28-2007, 06:25 AM
Last of the Mohicans
Gone With The Wind

Love Story

Peking Opera Blues
Spirited Away

09-20-2009, 06:22 AM
Blade Runner has a cultish atmosphere and tone to it.

by Vangelis. Everything about that film is excellent.

09-20-2009, 07:00 AM
The Birds

OK, that was a joke. How about Charlie Chan at the Opera? Oscar Levant composed an entire opera for this b-mystery.
An American in Paris - hard to beat Gershwin
A Hard Days Night
Head - psychedelic pretensiousness never sounded so good
A Clockwork Orange - loved Kubrick's take on the Wiliam Tell Overture ;D
Hiroshi Inagaki's Samurai Trilogy, which IIRC John Barry seems to have sort of recycled for Zulu. I remember them sounding suspiciously alike, anyhow.
Robocop - I'd buy that for a dollar
The Last Waltz

09-20-2009, 07:20 AM
Since everyone else is picking a bunch, then I will too :)

Life is Beautiful
Finding Neverland
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Edward Scissorhands

This was fun!

09-20-2009, 02:37 PM
Jackie Brown.
The only soundtrack ever I went to buy immediately after leaving the theater.

09-20-2009, 08:24 PM
Lost Boys gets my vote too.

And Pump up the Volume.

The Last Waltz
These, plus The Last of the Mohicans and Dazed and Confused.

Bad movies with good soundtracks:
Romeo and Juliet (90's)
City of Angels


The Crow

and especially

Singles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles_%28soundtrack_album%29) is my favorite.

09-20-2009, 08:57 PM
You know,

the soundtracks for Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill are deceptive in how well they absolutely MAKE their respective movies.

And for a random Soundtrack (Zoombie would appreciate this)

There was a song to Disney's Kingdom Hearts II video game.

It is called Passion (in Japanese) by Utada Hikaru

The English Version by Utada Hikaru is called Sanctuary


Both versions will give you chills


09-20-2009, 09:02 PM

09-20-2009, 09:36 PM
Thief - Tangerine Dream

09-20-2009, 09:44 PM
I thought the Wall-e sound track was done extremely well, as were most of the Pixar movies. Wall-e had its own dynamic that I thought went very well with the lonely robot theme.

09-20-2009, 10:36 PM
Blood & Chocolate

Romantic Heretic
09-20-2009, 11:26 PM
The Mission, especially Gabriel's Oboe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9UH6WNbY-0).

Manhattan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o6QKpNK9Cc).

Rollerball 1975 version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMUCuzUJro4).

Phantom Of The Paradise (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwCryq5qtyk).

EDIT: Forgot to add Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet.

09-21-2009, 03:38 AM
The Proposition
Pulp Fiction
Silent Hill

I'm going to check out some of these listed here.

09-21-2009, 04:32 AM
The Red Violin
August Rush

09-21-2009, 05:11 AM
For original scores, rather than soundtracks (with pop songs 'n' stuff) The Godfather, Taxi Driver and the first Halloween. I like Pulp Fiction, Full Metal Jacket and The Crow for the tracks, but always seem to end up buying the orchesteral albums rather than the (more popular) soundtracks.

09-21-2009, 05:26 AM

09-21-2009, 05:42 AM
Last of the Mohicans
Jurassic Park
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

The Phantom of the Opera (both)
Disney's The Little Mermaid
Disney's Aladdin
The Muppet Show
The Muppet Movie

Does Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds count? ;)

09-21-2009, 08:28 PM
SUPERFLY by Curtis Mayfield is one of the greatest soundtracks ever created.

Indeed! :snoopy:

09-21-2009, 08:44 PM
Just thought of three more:

* West Side Story

* Jesus Christ Superstar

* The Godfather

10-11-2009, 12:08 AM
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and The Proposition, both by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. Absolutely brilliant soundtracks that fit the films beautifully.

Lars and the Real Girl by David Torn because, after you've seen the movie, you can't help but smile like an idiot everytime you listen to the soundtrack.

10-11-2009, 12:11 AM
Ooh, I forgot one-- Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid

I have to agree with many in here. There's SO many good soundtracks. Braveheart
Last of the Mohicans
Pirates of the Caribbean
Romeo + Juliet
City of Angels
Mission Impossible 2

I really liked the instrumentals for Iron Man and one of my favorites is the House of Flying Daggers.

Definitely up there - Trainspotting, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill. Also, a bunch of the old-school musicals, as I am a total sucker for musical theater. Most specifically - My Fair Lady, The King and I, Fiddler on the Roof, Oklahoma... do those count? They were made into films.

Anything by Vangelis (Bladerunner, The Bounty, Missing, Chariots of Fire, Antarctica, Carl Sagan's Cosmos TV show, etc.--his soundtrack compilation CD is awesome)

Thomas Newman's stuff (Six Feet Under tv show, Lemony Snickets, American Beauty, Shawshank Redemption)

Witches of Eastwick (John Williams)


Michael Galasso (My Chauffeur)

Clannad (Robin Hood, Patriot Games / Theme from Harry's Game)

Has anyone said Crow: City of Angels yet?! The soundtrack to that is super-awesome!:D The first Crow soundtrack is also cool but the second's has such an eclectic mix and is bloody hard to get as it was on a very limited release.
