Best ever movie soundtracks?
For me nothing will ever top this:

Absolutely brilliant!

It think that that's definitely is up there with the best! John Murphy's a fantastic composer.

As an orchestral musician, lots of pieces from the Lord of the Rings are a hell of a lot of fun to play, so this would have to be among my favorites.

I love John Carpenter's The Fog soundtrack.

The Twilight saga.
I know a lot of people who donít watch the films but absolutely love the soundtracks. lol
Carter Burwell's score perfectly captures the dark, brooding atmosphere.
My favourite piece of his:

Plus the soundtracks have introduced me to artists/bands I might not have heard otherwise.
My fave song from each film:
Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth

Lykke Li - Possibility

UNKLE - With You In My Head

Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz - Cold

Christina Perri feat. Steve Kazee - A Thousand Years Part 2
(the song at the end credits that gets everyone emotional that it's all over *sniff sniff*)

Other soundtracks on my ipod:
Billy Elliot
The Craft (amazing!!!)
Kill Bill Vol.1 & 2
Rocky Horror Picture Show
South Park the movie (lol)
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Not a fan of their music but the Tron soundtrack is damn good
Blade runner is still up there too

TexAveryWolf 23-12-2012 19:59

The Dust Brothers' soundtrack for Fight Club is one I still listen to-disturbing in a chill-out bar way.

And Malcolm Arnolds' Whistle Down the Wind, as well as the brilliance of Flash Harry's Theme from The Belles of St trinians is a fave of mine.

Tron Legacy had a pretty cool soundtrack.

As did The Matrix as I recall...

Top Gun

I like the music from Vertigo. I also like the pieces from Leaving Las Vegas, but the album contains lines of dialogue which some people don't like.

When I was a boy, on our record player a lot was the album from Carousel. If I hear it these days it makes me cry.

Rodney McKay 23-12-2012 20:42
