it's just amazing
have you heard 21 grams?
or the assassination of jesse james...?i love them both
I'll have to check them out.
On Her Majestys Secret Service
Planet of the Apes
...to name but a few.
are classics I love both of those soundtracks.
Electroma is ace for newer film.
Didn't wanna say it in fear of being too geeky.
I think Family Guy got it right about him...
for the classical style win.
For more modern stuff I think Clint Mansell (ex PWEI) is 'the man'. Pi in particular is amazing, tracks by Massive Attack, aphex twin as well as Mansell himself.
His stuff with Mogwai on 'the fountain' OST is pretty damn good as well.
Got me into decent music.
Hip hop, Slint, Sebadoh, Folk Implosion...
Without a doubt
i liked his work on requiem too, although i thought the main theme may have been overused slightly.
Because it got re-worked after and used everywhere but that's not Mansell's fault.
Average film, amazing soundtrack.
There Will Be Blood is pretty great, too.
Honourable mention to Dead Man for self-indulgence.
is pretty great
Oh and Inland Empire.
going off track a bit, I was thinking how great Portishead would be at doing a soundtrack when I saw them last month. The live show was like the soundtrack to an endlessly bleak post-apocalyptic film
Little Miss Sunshine are two recent films that have soundtracks that fit the film perfectly, especially This Is England.
Did a compilation of songs from soundtracks (called "The Score") a few years back which I listen to every now and again. It has an amazing song from Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song which isn't on the OST, also a great version of Let it Be by Nick Cave (forgotten which film from) and God Moving over the Face of Water by Moby (as used in Heat and a number of other films). Plus a number of great tracks (Frankie Machine being one from Man with the Golden Arm). The tracklisting is available here: http://tinyurl.com/6jaom7
which got me into the Velvet Underground and Nick Drake. It really is a lovely soundtrack.
and forrest gump are great sunny albums... most wes anderson/wilson soundtracks are pretty good though...
All done by The RZA. Its fantastic.
and anything by Hans Zimmer.
so over the top i want to cover myself in glitter and roll around with drag queens.
I hate that film and soundtrack. My vote = Harold and Maude
Once upon a time in America - Sergio Leone
Princess Mononoke - Joe Hisashi
Akira - Geinoh Yamashirogumi
Blade Runner - Vangelis
Taxi Driver - Bernard Hermann
Dead Man - Neil Young
Top 5 Best soundtracks
Sea of love
Sneaky old bastard
by a mile.
all about lily chou-chou
Amazing soundtrack - remember walking home one night in the early hours with it on my headphones - possibly the most epic walk home I've ever had.
Also Ghost Dog, as mentioned above though lots of good stuff on the film didn;t make it to the soundtrack CD
listen to that track without getting the shivers... i like to turn the film off twenty mins before the end and pretend everyone had a happy ending...
That soundtrack is indie-tastic!
is also quite good
and, yes, This is England has a fantastic sound track actually.
Lost In Translation
Once Upon A Time In The West
.....to name 9 of many.
it is ace
The cook, the thief, the wife...-Michael Nyman

Good, the bad and the ugly-Ennio Morricone
Friday Night Lights-EITS
The Graduate-Art and Garfunkel
Lost in Translation

Me and You and Everyone We Know?
Requiem for a Dream
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
- Harold Faltermayer.... Captain Freedom's Workout is the best shit ever
or The Fountain. I got the 30 Days Of Night soundtrack after seeing the film a while back and it still gets regular listens and regularly gives me the willies so an honourable mention for that too.
Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind
Lost In Translation
face it, it deserved those oscars! (i do agree with many things other people have said)
also, the music in Mirrormask makes me love that film all the more <3
tend to have great soundtracks, even though the movies are generally terrible.
Willie Hutch - The Mack
James Brown - Black Caesar
Marvin Gaye - Trouble Man
Curtis Mayfield - Superfly
Jackie Brown has a great OST too.
by Robin Budd and Harold Guthrie.
It's sublime in every way, one of the most beautiful pieces of music.
Chilling and oddly heartwarming at the same time.
is a great soundtracks.
Are you referring to the main theme or just the soundtrack in general?
Because I can't remember any artists on it, and the main theme is ripped off from Erik Satie, and Badlands.
Friday Night Lights - Explosions in the Sky
Zidane - Mogwai
Life Aquatic - especially staraflur at the end
Lost in Translation
Thumbsucker - Elliott Smith/Polyphonic Spree
The Cat Returns - there is this awesome song called Kaze Ni Naru by Ayano Tsuji during the ending credits
on her majestys secret service
Friday Night Lights
Anything by Wes Anderson
I love Underworld, but I'd gladly bury them in engine oil for putting the legal mockers on this OST. One of the most soaring, goose-pimply compositions you'll ever hear in Surround Sound. Good job Mr M was kind enough to burn off some CDs via the IMDb message boards. Worth buying a strongbox for ;)
is really frickin' odd and over-long in places, and well 80s, but still quite amazing in others.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
It's Easy Rider.
But O Brother Where Art Thou is an acceptable answer.
I love his work for Goodbye Lenin, I think it's underrated considering how much people go on about the Amelie OST.
Goes brilliantly with that helicopter sequence.
Watched Pu-239 the other night. Best original OST I've heard this year.
Twin Peaks:Fire Walk With Me
