RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Forrest Gump had the best collection of great songs from the 60's. 

Apocalypse Now was great too. 

 

Pretty much all John Williams, specially with Spielberg and Lucas. 

Most of Kubrick movies had brilliant OST. Perfect mix of Gyorgy Ligetti and Penderecki.

Most Lynch movies. Tarantino makes bloody great OST too...

 

Blade Runner is epic electronica!

Conan is just epic!

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

There are some cracking soundtracks out there but for me it is Star Wars: A New Hope every time. I still get goose bumps when I hear that familar blast of brass. It is just an amazing John Williams score.

 

I would also throw in Quadrophenia cos The 'oo are my favourite band and the opening scene with Jimmy riding around East London on his Lambretta backed with "The Real Me" gets me on the edge of my seat everytime!!

 

As a Brucy bonus, someone else listed The song remains the same earlier. If we're allowed that kind of film then look no further than the greatest rock and roll retrospective ever committed to celluloid - The Kids are alright. rockin out

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

I've not read the whole thread, so not sure if we're talking score or soundtrack (they're quite commonly mixed up).

I think I've mentioned my favourites before, like Out Of Sight. Carpenter's Halloween soundtrack is a very simplistic one, but very effective.

I've recently watched Se7en again, and Howard Shore's score adds so much atmosphere to the movie - amazing. Alberto Iglesias should also get a mention for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy too.

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

 

More of a 'favourite bits of soundtracks' list but here goes: 

American Beauty - Thomas Newman. Title track is fantastic, very atmospheric. Rest of the albums good and does a great of of supporting the movie.

Layer Cake - Mixed artists, sometimes accompanying  scenes in some kind of matched perfection. The intro backed by FC Kahuna's 'Hayling'  comes to mind, as does the fight scene set to Duran Duran's Ordinary World.

Quadrophenia - fantastic. Interesting that in places they seem to set the film to the music and handle the gapless transitions beautifully, e.g. the intro, I am the sea -> the real me. Bit of a cheat as I'd vote for the '73 album which predated the movie...
