Best Film Sountrack of all time?

Hi!

Im just wondering if you can tell me your favourite film soundtracks of all time.....

My top 5 film soundtracks of all time would be like this:

1. Trainspotting - listen to the awesome "Born Slippy" by Underworld, amazing Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life". It has the likes of Blur, Pulp and many more. Truly the one to listen to!

2. Heat - That soundtrack with over 74 mins worth of music is truly diverse from the likes of Kronos Quartet, Passengers, Moby among others. Best tracks? Moby's two songs "New Dawn Fades" and "God Moving over the Face of the Waters" has to be listened to. The latter is really so so so cool! (Actually, "New Dawn Fades" is an old Joy Division song that was edited by Moby.)

3. 2001: A Space Odyssey - unforgettable sounds especially Also Sprach Zarathrustra.....

4. Close Encounters of The Third Kind by John Williams

5. Braveheart - well, I might be a bit biased on this choice as Im a Scotsman but man, its really beautiful!

Trainspotting is indeed excellent. I especially like "For What You Dream Of" and "Born Slippy." And you can never go wrong with Pulp.

I also love:

Rattle and Hum
Selmasongs (from Dancer in the Dark)
Beloved (although it's pretty heavy and doesn't lend itself to repeated listening, the music is painfully beautiful)


Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction also had some great tunes.

I'm sure there are more, but the ol' brain is a little fuzzy today.

I'm not sure if it's the Best Anything of All Time, but I got the Dead Man Walking soundtrack for the two Eddie Vedder tracks and was very pleasantly surprised that the rest was quite good too. It holds together well as a coherent album. I'm a fan of most of the artists represented on it now.

Rushmore. It doesn't play like a soundtrack, it plays like an album.

Hello,

I've noticed that a lot of soundtracks U2 have contributed exclusive tracks too are great!
- Until The End Of The World
- Faraway, So Close!
- Heat (indeed a great soundtrack)
- The End Of Violence (don't know the score CD by Ry Cooder but his sole track on this one is great)
- Paris, Texas by Ry Cooder
- Pulp Fiction
- Jackie Brown (Quentin Tarantino does have a good nose for compiling a great soundtrack)

I'm gonna think of some more...

C ya!

Marty
