Hey all,

I see that lots of great topics have been posted lately and I need to make some time to post on them, but in the interim, here is another weekly topic. This one is in honor of the Academy Awards. Here it goes:

What is your favorite movie soundtrack? It doesn't have to be the best--just your favorite. [Linked Image]

"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" definitely first, "Grease" probably second. Whole bunch of thirds.

Hello,
It used to be the soundtrack for "Top Gun". Lately I kind of cringe when I hear those songs again.
Sad thing is I can't recall any recent favourite soundtrack.. an older favourite soundtrack would be the theme music for "The Good, Bad, and the Ugly".

Harold and Maude...Cat Stevens.

I could also add The Last Waltz, My Fair Lady, and Fiddler on The Roof, but that would be kinda cheating, wouldn't it?

A soundtrack I wish they would put on CD is the Soundtrack from the movie THE YELLOW ROLLS ROYCE. The movie came out sometime in the middle 60's and at one time I had a Reel to Reel copy. It got damaged and I no longer have it. I did aquire a LP Record and made my own CD. A great work of music.

Hey Scott,

I could not make this up if I'd tried...But re: The Sting & Scott Joplin,,,,Several years ago, I was watching an old black & white (silent) Tarzan movie on TV, and there was a scene where Jane was running from the bad guys...Tarzan was nowhere in sight...Jane dodged behind a tree & then ran into a tent...The bad guys were closing in, but were confused by the tent...and then, (drum roll) Jane ran out of the tent & around a bunch of trees,,,And here it came!!!!Joplin''s theme...Giving Jane energy & confusing the bad guys all at the same time!!!...

Honestly, I am not making this up....The first line of music that y'all hear when you think of 'The Sting', was composed by Scott Joplin, and was first used in film for a 'silent' Tarzan' movie...

That's it! Shoot me in the common sense and "should know it" part of my brain. I must have some cells missing in action or something! How in Beatleland did I not think of my most favorite soundtrack? The film with GREAT songs throughout and saw when I was 11 wi th my parents who even thought it was something, (although they heard the girls screaming mostly)!
The one I have on DVD and play it more than a couple of times a year, and still have my mouth open in amazement of how good and creative they really were? I would like to put at the top of my list:

"A HARD DAYS NIGHT"!

Damn,,,,,and I thought I was not aging at all.

TRIPLETTES OF BELLEVILLE!!!!!!!

Well, it's not necessarily my favorite soundtrack, but I just saw this film a couple of months ago and I've been telling everyone I know to check it out. One of the best movies I've seen in a while.

This animated feature is in French, but there's next to no dialogue so it's easy to grasp (no need for subtitles) and the music is amazing. Some of the characters are musicians, so it relly appeals to us musician types.

An in reference to the Oscars, the first place I saw anything about this movie is when a song was nominated a couple of years ago for an Academy award.

I can't pick just one:

Superman - John Williams
Dark Crystal - Trevor Jones
Finding Neverland - Jan A.P. Kaczmarek
Close Encounters - John Williams
Somewhere In Time - John Barry

and LOTS more.

I'm going to be reading all the others here and sampling. Nothing like a good soundtrack to put on late at night and enjoy.

Christine,

I love the Triplets of Belleville, both the music and the cartoon. Even the foley work is excellent. But, still, my fave is the wonderful score for "The Birds."

All the Best,
Mike

Harold and Maude. I liked the Ruth Gordon version of (cant remember exact title, If you want to be you be you song) better than Cat Stevens version.

Wizard of OZ
(but think male vocalist version of 'over the rainbow' that came out a few years ago far better to original)

Dave's not here? It was 5 years after the record came out that I found out it wasn't just a joke about me. I thought it was a joke between my friends because everyone said it when I was daydreaming and missed something (which was quite often). Didn't actually hear the record until 5 years later.

The movie, Let it be, for me, is too depressing to watch, with the breakup around the corner, and them being all tensed and bitter. Ringo even quit for three weeks during it, (after seeing how the other three were with each other).

They even tried going to another studio, with no good results. And with Paul even controlling the camera shots and angles! It was really Paul's film. Too much for John and George to take. Let it be Naked is cool though as the soundtrack, as it's recorded in the beginning takes, and has no Spector junk in it. I mean parts. A million parts! ("Can we get fifty more voices? A thousand just won't do"!

I am a big fan of Soundtrack music that actually become a character in the movie itself. The single best example of this is John Williams score for Jaws. Imagine that movie without that score. You can actually listen to the entire soundtrack and mentally go right to each scene and let it play out in your head with the background music.

John Williams is a true freak of nature. I believe in 300 years, his name will be of equal regard along with Mozart and Beethoven. Don't believe me? Look at how many mega blockbuster movies he's scored and ask yourself how many of those movies can you immediately think of the theme music.. I don't think anyone else is even in his league.

I have to agree with Brian 1000% John Williams is the man!

When I saw this topic I first thought of a Movie Score
or better yet Movie Theme..
But soundtracks have mixed artists and songs so it's completely different... Love Mike Oldfields Tubular Bells for the Exorcist but cant say I remember the rest of the album...

Brian is right..You better believe it.. I always point out to whoever will listen to me, when we're watching a movie, I'll say and guess who did the music? of course John Williams!

Also Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner & now Danny Elfman are all amazing & wonderful but John takes the cake..

Get a load of some of this guys work!

Speilberg might be the smartest movis maker around. He doesn't even try to see what any other composer would do. He trusts Williams genius. That's how smart Spielberg actually is!

Williams just plays the themes on his piano for Speilberg after reading the script, and with just that, Steven said he gets the right feel every time and the music surpasses his imagination and expectations!
Imagine being THAT great at something!
And to be able to conduct as he does. Masterfull! Original! One of the all time greats in music, Brian is right!

What a list! BIG WOW!!!
Didn't realize all of them were his scores!
That could change my list, but will leave my initial soundtracks, as I do love them too.

John,

Like I said they are still Theme Songs and excerpts..
I like The Soundrack to "Boogie Nights" better than Jurassic Park, but love the theme from Jurassic Park..

I get bored very fast listening to entire movie scores..

I just thought of an another example of this, in my opinion of course.

There is a movie (from the late 70's, I think) called "Sorceror", where several men, including a character played by Roy Scheider, have to drive nitroglycerine across the countryside in old trucks in order to put out a fire. The soundtrack was a perfect fit to the movie and was composed, I believe, by Tangerine Dream. Anyone else seen that one?

Well, not to continue banging Mr. Bernard Hermann's drum, but before "Jaws," I'd say the most compelling movie theme, not entire piece, but theme, was the chromatic violin stabs (pun intended) of Psycho. Also, I would argue there has never, repeat never, been a film score that matched either the the theme, mood, or indeed the title of a picture more that the score for "The Birds."

It's pretty hard to pick one "best." But I cannot think of a soundtrack that was more effective in driving the story--from the background--than the soundtrack to American Graffiti.

Oh brother where art thou
Forrest Gump

and I don't think there is a soundtrack, but one of the most moving movie moments for me as far as when screen and song collide, is the opening of the movie "CLOSER" and Damien Rice's "The Blowers Daughter" is playing. I'll never forget the first time I saw that opening.

"And so it is..."

Good Idea,
Justin.

I know there are loads but I can't think of many off the top of my head right now!

The Firm - (can't remember who)
Once Upon A Time In The West- Morricone
Dances With Wolves - Barry (the main theme's a rehash of the Moonraker theme. Cheater!)
The Fugitive - James Howard
Robinson Crusoe On Mars - Nathan van Cleave
Planet Of The Apes - Goldsmith
The Big Country - Jerome Moross

Don't think much of the current crop of big composers I'm afraid.

Conan the Barbarian. Not just because it fits the power of the movie so well, but because they're such great pieces.

I've been scrolling through people's answers and enjoying them.

Titanic and Elizabethtown.

The music is such an integral part of Elizabethtown.

There is actually a cool marketing strategy hidden in Elizabethtown. She creates a roadtrip map for him which includes music. There are people who create giftbaskets. Why not create digital giftbaskets for shoppers online which includes your music?

I think the same could be said of "Five Easy Pieces"--the music, classical and country, is an integral part of the film.

I don't know how good it was, really (and that's why I didn't include it on my list). Best I can say is it's the film that first got me thinking about country music as serious music.

My favorite has been for years the soundtrack to Bram Stoker's Dracula ('92?),the last song being that sentimental tune by Annie Lennox.

I was thinking about non orchestral (i.e. symphony) soundtracks and I think my favorite all time is the soundtrack for To Live And Die In LA by Wang Chung. They totally nail the feel of the movie and it fits well to lock in the era as well as the plot lines and mood.

I think there is a big difference between a Soundtrack where the subject matter is a musician's story or a musical, and a soundtrack that supports a story by providing the emotional background. I.E. The Last Waltz, The Grateful Dead Movie, Woodstock or even Ray and Walk The Line - have great tunes in the soundtrack because the movie is about the music. But I think music that supports the story rather than music that is the story is more what a "great soundtrack" represents.

I was reading a forum topic somewhere where the writer was basically criticizing Elton John for trying to "revive his career" by singing Country. It occurred to me that Elton John's second album, "Tumbleweed Connection" was basically a country album with several of the songs redone by modern artists would fit in nicely with today's Country sound. That night I rent the movie Elizabethtown and I hear, "My Father's Gun" as part of the soundtrack.

Tim McGraw should have sung that song instead of Tiny Dancer. Actually, Travis Tritt would be better.

Without a doubt the best movie soundtrack in my book is Beautiful Girls. I actually picked up the soundtrack before I ever saw the movie because I heard Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs produced it. It did not diappoint. If you are a guy, this is also one of the best guys movies ever. It tops all my lists.

Four words, folks:

WILLY THE WILY WALRUS.

More words:

It speaks endless realms of psychedelic metaphors of truth unto my own penumbras of garlic-minded stubborn futility. Parameters, parameters, they've done it all here with Winston the Wily Walrus. Read me and love me.

My favorite sound track is probably MICHAEL because not only are the songs great but so are the performances.

Nice to know I'm not alone in this world.

Check out Tangerine Dream's soundtrack to Thief (starring James Caan) as well.
