Lucy_Eyelesbarrow__ said...

Anything by: John Williams (Superman), John Barry (Somewhere in Time, Chaplin, Out of Africa), or Ennio Morricone (Cinema Paradiso). Goodfellas, Valley Girl, Castaway, Legend of 1900, Harry Potter films, All That Jazz. Superman The Movie is my all time favorite.

Motörhead said...

Maximum Overdrive

AndrewBW said...

None of these are even close to the correct answer which is:

American Graffiti.

FTW. Hands down. No contest.

Phelps said...

UHF.

(I get the Big Lebowski joke. The unofficial soundtrack is fantastic. The actual OST is a disgusting piece of garbage devoid of the actual music used in the film.

(Like the rest of the promotion for the film, the distributor maliciously fucked everything up.)

Joel Theriot said...

Oh hey Motörhead, big fan lol 😜

Alexandria said...

Blade Runner by Vangelis, it's otherworldly.

hothotheat said...

Grease

Seachica said...

Grease, though it's a musical, so don't know if you can count it

Otherwise, Top Gun, Footloose, She's Having a Baby...pretty much every teen movie from the 80s had a killer soundtrack.

Saturday Night Fever also gets my votes

HoneyRyder said...

Dazed and Confused

K8T said...

The Commitments

Texas Gal said...

Risky Business

Chase said...

Pulp Fiction and Dazed & Confused

Sass71 said...

Agreed sandybrook, TW and Dena

artensoll said...

Oh brother where art thou?

Who knows, or even cares. It's still on regular rotation in my car though.

Uhhhh... said...

@Brayson that was my first thought too...

Motörhead said...

Couldda said Eat The Rich but doubt you yankees would have seen it♠️

AbbeyBruce said...

Footloose

Charisma S said...

GOODFELLAS
Casino
A Bronx Tale

So many more but some were said and can’t think of the others lol. Everyone has given really great answers. Love all those soundtracks.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

Goodfella's blew me away..

Neil said...

The Sting

Marla Hooch said...

I can’t believe no one said Reality Bites

Defintely O Brother Where Art Thou.

RockSword said...

Amadeus

Unknown said...

The original, Beauty and the Beast.

Gea said...

Wuthering Heights (1992) Ryuichi Sakamoto

HoneyRyder said...

Multiple excellent soundtracks from John Hughes, Cameron Crowe and Sofia Coppola films. And as much as he personally disgusts me, I like a few Tarantino ones too.

Martin McHendry said...

Without a hint of irony: Batman Forever.

Seriously, it was amazing.

Katrina's Voice said...

I'm thinking "Ready Player One" soundtrack will be really good, and potentially my new favorite soundtrack. (80s alternative and rock) So far artists/tracks mentioned are on track with the book's musical reference.

R Bee said...

As an Edinburgh native- Trainspotting, then followed by Amelie.

Tricia13 said...

Absolutely! Definitely one of them (Dylan.... The Beta Band)
9.5 weeks was pretty awesome as well

canroadrunner said...

Funny Girl and Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet are two I listened to endlessly when I was young. Chicago is my all time favorite.

p keel said...

X files the first movie

BluePedal said...

No contest...

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies

Yes, that is the name. A soundtrack like no other.

Tracey said...

The Craft

Big Crazy Baby said...

In The Mood For Love

Frufra said...

Many come close, but the only correct answer is Blues Brothers.

SarahElizabeth said...

Pulp fiction or Oh brother where art thou... the second is the only one I’ve ever bought

Jen Ty said...

Footloose

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Top Gun

Ice Angel said...

Sorry but you cannot even touch Saturday Night Fever

Maude Labowski said...

O'Brother, Where Art Thou?

Roja734 said...

There are personal favorites, like The Graduate, Pretty in Pink, High Fidelity, Garden State, and then there are soundtracks that so thoughtfully captured the movies themselves that I can't hear certain songs without remembering the movies: The Big Chill, Stand by Me, 8 Mile, O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Deborah Frueh said...

Goldfinger (don’t forget Shirley Bassey!) I love every track, esp “Alpine Drive”

Oceane said...

Sunshine

Shannon3n88 said...

One other that I really love and have on heavy rotation at home, is the soundtrack to "Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ".

CityGirl said...

The Big Chill, 8 Mile, Waiting to Exhale, Baby Driver

Kendrick Schroder said...

What everyone else said + Repo Man & Over the Edge, among others. I had a VHS copy of the former (the movie, I mean, although I had the cassette too - my recollection is the soundtrack wasn't released on CD till the 90s or something), taped from tv, complete with KTLA or some such station commercials, and funnily dubbed expletives. Anyone remember watching the former on Lifetime in the 80s after school? In a certain way, it was like the ultimate after school special.

shakey said...

Phantom of the Paradise
Rocky Horror Picture Show

Holy shot I tell people all the time they need to see that movie. Just for the sight of Sean Connery wearing a red nappy and nothing else.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

+1. Levon sang for more than 14 hours and never faltered.

Cran Grape said...

Almost Famous/ Queen of the Damned

Anything by Phillip Glass. Wonderfully baroque. A true genius in our time.

kristaylor6663 said...

Dazed and confused or the crow

Brayson87 said...

@Uhhhh, I don't think people appreciate how many great musicians paired together to make unique songs for the Spawn soundtrack. Most of the soundtracks listed above, except musicals, were a compilation of existing songs, more like a playlist.

Kikibunny said...

Omg noone wrote pink floyd the wall...also like saturday night fever Singles fast times at ridgemont high heavy metal

Kikibunny said...

I also remember when tommy was all over the airwaves setting records

ccryder said...

@Normal.Yes Indeed - agree. Koyaanisqatsi is awesome.
Desperdo has an amazing Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits "Six Blade Knife" that's pretty stellar.
True Stories - Talking Heads,
Something Wild
Rushmore

bunny honey said...

The Bodyguard and John Wick.

suzylee123 said...

Casino, and Rushmore.

CJ said...

2001 A Space Odyssey because it opened classical music to me.

If you mean music specifically composed for movies, then Ennio Morricone and John Barry are modern masters.

Brandi Samples said...

It's "South Pacific" or "The Music Man" fighting it out for Win and Place, with "My Fair Lady" and "The Sound of Music" fighting it out for the Show position. All these are well before my time. I'm not THAT old, I just know a lot of movies and scores. "O Brother Where Art Thou", from my era, came on strong but wasn't in the running.

HoneyRyder said...

Absolutely love this question and reading through the comments. Discovered some new music today and revisited some favorites...thanks everyone!
Not an epic OMG all time favorite, but do love how the story and original songs on the soundtrack were entwined in the film Once.

MLW Disclosure said...

I like seeing ONCE in the choices.

But its soundtrack so The Third Man.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Holy shite, Enty. What an overwhelming question.

This is all I have for now:

Best intro: Hawaii Five-0 (the original ‘60s version—not that there’s anything wrong with the remake, but me likey retro sounds). 🌋🌺👩🏻🥗🍂

Catchiest song in a trailer: “Time of the Season” (The Zombies) on “All The Money in the World” (because I like Romain Duris)

I liked “Rush” (all the Hans Zimmer who also did “Inception”, and some Bowie).

Also Yann Tiersen for “Goodbye, Lenin!” (although I think most people know him for “Amelie”).

Best theme for a film: “Pacific Rim” (Ramin Djawadi).

I’ll probably think of more later... Good Lord. What a loaded question. LOL.

Fever

Scandi Sanskrit said...

🎼 “HOLD ME CLOSERRRR TINY DANCEERR! COUNT THE HEADLIGHTS ON THE HEADWAAAY! LAY ME DOAWn in SHEETS OF LIIIIINEEN! YOU HAD A BUSY DAY TODAAAAY!” 🚍🎤

Holy shite. That’s my coming-of-age film, “Almost Famous” (when I was in the school magazine).

Also, the title (later in life). All my peers got to be actresses as their coming-of-age rite of passage thing (because that’s just what girls in my schools did) but I was always a late bloomer and now their all miserable and made that I’m still having fun at my age. Fuck them, tho.

Where’s the pointe shoes emoji, iOS 11?

Scandi Sanskrit said...

💃🏻 YOU SHOULD BE DAAAAANCIN’!!!! YEEEEEH🕺🏻

Scandi Sanskrit said...

DUMBASS. Enty asked “movie” and I included “television”. Oops, sowwyyyy.

Pulp Fiction

auntliddy said...

Easy Rider. The Big Chill. The Big Easy.

Elaine Pepe said...

The sound of music

ihsahn77 said...

You can't beat Lost Highway for dark, beautiful and haunting music. It has Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and 9" Nails.
Also I love the soundtrack to Once Upon a Time in America as much as the movie itself. Ennio Morricone at his very best.

Breaking. About break dancing.
