    Top 5 Movie Soundtracks

    I was just listening to the Lost Highway soundtrack - I'd forgotten just how good it was, and how well the music suited the film. Particularly enjoyed Barry Adamson's stuff, as much as Badalamenti's, and of course, Bowie's "Deranged". Incidentally, that Rammstein track is probably the worst song ever to wake up to when you've fallen asleep with headphones on, in the dark.

    Anyhow, it's up there with the best. What's your top five? I'd do a thread on scores, but I don't think there'd be many responses (though if people want to name 5 top scores in addition, go ahead), so let's keep this to soundtracks (ie more along the lines of actual songs/tunes, rather than orchestral motifs), though I'd rule out concert performances and the like (ie, Sign O' The Times, Gimme Shelter etc).

    Mine (I haven't really decided on the order):

    Dirty Harry - Lalo Schifrin
    Lost Highway - Angelo Badalementi, David Bowie, assorted artists
    Easy Rider - Steppenwolf, The Byrds, Hendrix, assorted artists
    Superfly - Curtis Mayfield
    Deep Cover - Dr Dre, Jewell, Michael Colombier, assorted artists

    Special mentions to The Virgin Suicides, Withnail and I and Trainspotting

    Would have had Tommy in the top 5 but couldn't decide if it qualified.

    Dunno about top five, but Ennio Morricone's stuff is the best I've heard. Some of the best music ever, actually.

    A few of my faves...

    BHC I
    Top Gun
    Back To The Future I
    Croc Dundee (even though there's no Original Soundtrack Album)
    Forrest Gump

    The top 2, by a mile, in sales terms are Grease and Saturday Night Fever, of course.

    The opening theme by Kenny Loggins is easily the best of his many movie soundtracks IMO.

    I don't really have a top five as such, but Withnail & I and Trainspotting would both be up there. I always thought Tarantino used music pretty well (or used to), so I'd have Reservoir Dogs and/or Pulp Fiction there or thereabouts. WRT music composed for films, I'm a massive Vangelis fan, so I rank Chariots of Fire & Blade Runner highly too.

    Elsewhere I just tend to associate bits of music (usually classic) with scenes from films: Barber's Adagio For Strings from Platoon, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue from Manhatten, Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries (sp?) from Apocalypse Now & (of course) Strauss's Blue Danube from 2001.

    I've also never been able to hear Singin' in the Rain in quite the same way since seeing A Clockwork Orange either.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    You've an incredibly similar soundtrack taste to my workmate.

    Clockwork Orange and Pulp Fiction feature heavily there, too.

    Almost Famous.
    South Park: Bigger Longer Uncut - Awesome musicals
    Any Beatles movie - Help! in particular, but they're all gun.
    Forrest Gump - Soundtrack > Movie
    Chicago - guilty pleasure, but it's so good.

    Can't think of many better at this late hour tbh. Special mention to Dazed and Confused, never seen the movie but I have the sound track and it's sweet. Also love Ennio Morricone's score to the Man with No Name trilogy.

    No Flash Gordon Brumby? An oversight, surely
