Favourite Movie Soundtrack Albums new [re: ]  

Heh. It's a music thread.



2001: A Space Odyssey. Khachaturian. And Ligeti.



One From the Heart: Tom Waits.

Yeah, the list ought to be longer, but no planning went into this thread.

The "Diva" soundtrack comes to mind (mostly for Vladimir Cosma's pastiche of Erik Satie's Gnossiennes.

Re: Favourite Movie Soundtrack Albums new [re: Auntie Prism]  

A Clockwork Orange is a given, of course. But in addition to that (hopefully the images will work):



I admit this counts as a sign of my geekiness, but I really really like the soundtrack to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It's an amazing soundtrack, though I admit I might be biased due to the fact it's also one of my favourite movies.



Joe Hishaishi's soundtrack to Princess Mononoke is amazing. That tends to go to all of Hishaishi's work to be honest, but Mononoke is particularly flawless.



While I do not in fact own this, the soundtrack to Alex Proyas' 1998 film Dark City is pretty amazing. Or more to the point, the music from the movie (by Trevor Jones) is amazing. The soundtrack also includes "inspired by" tracks such as Gary Numan's atrociously bad "Dark" which don't work that well. But talking about the soundtrack itself this one is pretty damn good.

Sexx Laws new [re: globule2]  

I listened to the samples of a few of these on Amazon. Of those I heard, the Diva soundtrack is promising, Globule. It seems to have an interesting mix of different styles, which is something that tends to be specific to soundtracks. It (vaguely) reminds me of something I wanted to include in my original post:



Betty Blue Gabriel Yared. Which includes classical piano pieces, jazz lounge pieces, some early rock 'n' roll, and a kind of pseudo-fairground ride-cum-Magic Roundabout piece (which plays over the title credits and is catchy). No opera, though.

Mxy, I've read that Beck had a hand in Scott Pilgrim's music, and that's a good enough reason for me to check it out. I kept tolerably up-to-date with Beck's up to and including The Information, and have enjoyed his stuff. I'm slightly suspicious of the 'geek chic' surrounding the movie itself, though. And I've been pretty crap at keeping tabs on Trent Reznor.

K's Princess Mononoke sounded interesting, too, from the samples.

one from each decade new [re: Auntie Prism]  


The Quantum of Solace soundtrack has a duet with Jack White and Alicia Keys on it. What's not to like?

Judgment night - each song a collaboration between a metal band and a hip-hop band. How nineties!

Colors: Great movie, a soundtrack containing the best hip hop had to offer at the time.

There is probably a law somewhere stipulating that you have to like the soundtrack to The harder they come. Well, it is a classic for a reason.

It's SAILER, idiot!

I stopped keeping up with both of them years ago; in Beck's case, I suspect finding out he's a scientologist had something to do with it, even though as far as I know he keeps that bullshit out of his music (unless I'm missing the subliminal references to Lord Xenu). Trent has always been cool but, you know, life goes on and sometimes having a sandwich sounds more appealing than listening to his new album.

I arrived at these albums the conventional way: watching the movies and liking the background music enough to seek more of it. I had a preconceived idea of what a Trent Reznor soundtrack might sound like when I watch The Social Network, and what I heard completely subverted my expectations. It's a very good record. I've also found that it's ideal for walking someplace in a hurry.

I had a dream when I closed my eyes new [re: EJ]  

Good call, EJ. I loved that album when I was a kid.

The Hairspray soundtrack is pretty cool, assuming you liked the music from the flick. A nice bonus is the original version of Footstompin' that Bowie butchered on Cavett. It played during the closing credits of the film.

Maybe a link to a YouTube recording of it will work
