Alamo Bay and Johnny Handsome. Both have some righteous Ry Cooder tracks.

Great topic!

Mean Streets, without a doubt... Don't know if they ever even pressed it, but the songs are just incredible...

Also, anything by Herrmann, Mancini, Rota and most of Morricone

Manhunter: Micheal Mann film

Soundtrack even if a little dated worked so well with the film which in itself is outstanding

Midnight Cowboy - loads of lovely orchestral and cowboy-y John Barry stuff plus a few cracking soul numbers and some cool psychedelic stuff too
Performance - Great Mick Jagger track, Last Poets and Ry Cooder, very cool
Bladerunner - Mmmm, great to fall asleep to

First post - yay! Hello.

This will date me and cause me to cash in some of my credibility chips, BUT:

Harold & Maude (all Cat Stevens)

and

The Rose

Has anyone every listened to the entire "Rose" soundtrack by Bette Midler, barring the actual title track? Made quite an impression on me when I was 10 yrs old and still does and I still adore Janis Joplin. Perhaps I should have posted this under guilty pleasures. Sorry.

Hi - Blade Runner is excellent, and if you can, find one of the bootleg editions of the soundtrack. The Esper Bootleg 2CD soundtrack is very very nice. If you're lucky, you might be able to download it from this site.

I'm also going to vote for the Hedwig & The Angry Inch soundtrack, and the Italian Job soundtrack. In a more ambient mode, Donnie Darko and Solaris are nice to listen to.

I think the Donnie Darko soundtrack works so well with the film. Love 'THe Killing Moon' by Echo and the Bunnymen. Tremendous. Caught a bit of their T in the Park Gig on TV last week. The sounded good think. A band I was never into but could listen to.

I've always really enjoyed the "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" soundtrack quite a lot. Especially the opening and closing themes - some very nice bowed saw sounds in there.

Requiem For A Dream is another good one...

At the other end of the spectrum, Blow Up and The Graduate are both fun soundtracks!

Finally, even though I don't actually own the soundtrack, watching Steven Soderbergh's "The Limey" is a treat, in part due to the music.

....Second 'Performance' and '...Cuckoo's nest', in fact, any soundtrack by Jack Nitzsche is a winner.
He also was responsible for 'The Hot Spot' - which featured Miles Davis (trumpet) AND John Lee Hooker (moans and guitar).

Speaking of Miles, the 'Jack Johnson' soundtrack is exceptionally good.

And also 'Dead Man' by Neil Young is amazing.

all great choices, must say that PI is an excellent pick. didn't massive attack have something to do with that?????

as far as my picks go, tops would defo have to be "sweet and lowdown" absolutely a fantastic movie with a brilliant soundtrack.

second choice would have to "basqiuat". it has a mesmerizing song from gavin friday on it amongst others.

third would have to be "wings of desire". for anybody that has never seen that film, GO NOW RENT.

wings of desire was a good call. its been making the rounds on cable. i forgot how great it was.

Jack Nitzsche gives me pause, primarily because of "Broken Arrow", but for other reasons too.

Believe it or not, Bza, I didn't realize A Tribute To Jack Johnson was a soundtrack.

26$, from the liner notes

"How well a soundtrack album initially fares in the marketplace is generally tied in to how well the movie with which it is associated fares.

Director William Cayton's 1970 documentary, Jack Johnson, while critically acclaimed, was not a big success...and consequently Miles Davis sondtrack album quickly got lost in the shuffle. Davis complained at the time that the album deserved a better reception. He was right..."


He was right. It only has two tracks, but it is still very indulgent in all the right ways. Miles trumpet playing has reached some kind a peak, and the streamlined [for that era] one-off band are incredible - Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Steve Grossman, Bill Cobham, Michael Henderson.

A box set is out there that comprises of four discs of music.

Not so much as a favourite soundtrack as much as probably my favourite Miles Davis album. The opening five minutes or so are the most rock style Davis ever went. Somewhere on 'Yesternow' a part of 'In a Silent Way' is looped through it unexpectedly, and beautifully.

The Vanishing Point soundtrack is brillant, especially when you are driving west from Denver into the mountains and the sun. http://www.moviegrooves.com/shop/vanishingpoint.htm I love the scene through 1970 Glenwood Canyon when it was just a two lane highway. That was before they built the $500 million highway through it now ending the last stretch of two lane interstate in the country in 1992.

I'll second that. The film ain't half bad either... ;)

I'll also second the Lock Stock disc - the only soundtrack with dialogue excerpts that isn't extremely irritating.

Are we talking soundtracks with music specially recorded for the film, or a compilation tape with tracs selected to go with scenes?

If it's the former, i'd recommend The Trip and Bubba Ho-Tep.
Not forgetting the Morricone spaghetti western masterpieces.


As for the latter, has anyone mentioned Dazed & Confused yet? Great opening with Aerosmith and - one of my favourite track selections for a scene - Skynyrd's Tuesday's Gone.

What about Superfly?

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Crumb or Ghost World. Great old blues compilations. I also like the Pink Flamingos soundtrack. Great mix of '50s rock.

And even though I don't own any of the Wes Anderson soundtracks, he always fills his movies with great tracks. The Stones' 2000 Man in Bottle Rocket, Elliott Smith's Needle In The Hay in Royal Tenenbaums, The Creation's Making Time in Rushmore... great songs put to great use in his films.

The only movie soundtrack "scores" I ever picked up were Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and The Shining (not an official score, just the Bartok music that was used in the movie)... not counting the Star Wars double album I got for Christmas when I was 8 years old.

Can't believe noone's yet mentioned Easy Rider, especially with Wasn't Born To Follow by The Byrds appearing twice in the film.
And then there's the menacing and haunting music from John Carpenter's Assault on Precint 13.

My favorite soundtrack of all time is Superfly, done by Curtis Mayfield. It's perfect. Vertigo would be my second favorite. Both are really great when you are going for a drive.
ooh ooh and the original Dawn of the Dead music was fantastic.


I kind of miss the days when most movies had an original score.

Although I've only heard it a few times, five or six years ago at that, I've been thinking about grabbing the soundtrack to The Harder They Come.

I'm not really a big fan of reggae (mainly due to a lack of exposure), and I've never seen the film, but those few listens must have made an impression back then for me to want it now - and the amazing cover art.
All of this talk of soundtracks has no doubt had an influence as well.

Another great soundtrack related listen is the Mojo compilation "The Score" from about 3 years ago... Lots of great stuff on there - DJ Shadow, Mancini, Morricone, The Kinks, John Barry, Vince Guaraldi (Peanuts!!!) and Booker T. & The MG's, even the Moby track is pretty cool...

i am really amazed no one has said "doom generation". it was alot of shoegazer shit and other cool stuff. also gotta say fight club and twin peaks fire walk with me. at the time singles was a pretty solid soundtrack.

Forgive me if someone has already mentioned this, but I just rented the beautifully scored Friday Night Lights starring B.B. Thornton on the weekend and thought it was worth a mention.

The music is performed by a group called Explosions In The Sky (shades of Mogwai/GYBE!)

I'm generally not a fan of tug at the heart strings, underdog takes down the big guy-type sports movies, nevermind ones about Texas Highschool Football, but talk about a striking blend of equal parts bleak and inspirational music and visuals...

The movie probably would have been pretty good, and rather unconventional, without the addition of the music, but with it, it really manages to go to the next level, in my opinion.

It was also nice that instead of using some over-used "We Will Rock You!" type song during "the big game", those responsible chose to go with the equally rush-inducing I Wanna Be Your Dog...

Dead Man's Shoe's is fucking astounding. I bought the soundtrack too. Vessel In Vain is a gorgeous song.

I've almost forced some of my mates to watch it when they weren't too bothered about watching it. It blew everyone of them away too.

That acid scence made me feel so dirty and sweaty! I felt like I was in that room with them!

Some of the dialogue at the start cracks me up.

"Fancy a tit-fuck?" "No thanks."

Go see it.

Fucking right! Thats a magic film!

Saw it a few months ago (an amazing unexpected gift), somehow mistakenly had the commentary on. Took a little while to realized :oops: It's in the voice of Elvis. The young Elvis.

I only have a few films but that is one of them...

Dead Man's Shoe's and The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael are molotov coctails of cinema, modern cinema.
i'm sure that the ending of Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael comes as shocking as Andalusian Dog was in 1929.

and the soundtrack of Great Ecstasy is an ace too. blow the kingdom.

i recently saw an amazing US indie movie called "Undertow", directed by freshman David Gordon Green, that crawled under my skin and made an impact like a lightning from a clear sky. recommended celluloid.
Undertows soundtrack is done by Philip Glass and thats also remarkable.

my question is who is the drunken songster in Miike's "Izo" ? ? ?

You went to the Love and Anarchy festival in Helsinki?


Izo was fucking fantastic, and Dead Man's Shoes is one of modern cinemas classics. Has anyone seen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou? Belongs on the same list, that one...


Veiko: Did you see the London Sinfonietta w/ Mira Calix @ NYYD2005?
Surely the gig of the year...

yes i was at the Love and Anarchy fest. my fifth time. i love that festival, very much my cup of tea. i'm much into japanese films, so it ain't getting better easily for me!

and yes London Sinfonietta was astonishing.
it was solemnal competition between classical music and intellectual dance music. feels like a reborn music lover after that experience.
(during the concert i recognized the Boards of Canada tune and that guided me to thinking that it's SO different from the original, so i was wondering how on earth those players are capable of digging so diverse music? i mean that BoC track is absolutly different on their album, so how many players from Sinfonietta are actually understanding the Warp Rec output?)


Juzba, did you see "Late Bloomer"?

here is a link to this extraordinary movie:
