The "Rocky" soundtracks are my favorites.

Natural Born Killers is good for a cinematic feel. Rocky Horror is good, and I also like Back to the Future, Purple Rain, and Chicago.

If you want great orchestral stuff, get one of the John Williams anthologies and marvel at what he's given pop culture over thirty years.

The Singles soundtrack was one of the first CDs I ever owned. Definately at the top of my list.

In second place is Dead Man Walking, which first introduced me to the soothing sounds of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

"Grosse Pointe Blank" The Clash, Pixies, Pogues, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, the scene of Guns N Roses' cover of "Live and Let Die" seguing perfectly into the Muzak version of the same song... excellent.

"The Big Chill" I think most Baby Boomers love the hell out of this soundtrack; at least all the ones I know do.

"Trainspotting" Much as someone said they couldn't go to a party in '94-'95 without hearing the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, I don't think I could go to a party in '96-'97 without hearing the Trainspotting soundtrack.

I gotta agree with the folks that listed the soundtrack to Judgment Night. It's STILL awesome.

Some of the ones I like:

Scores:

  • Sideways. A great light jazz score by Rolfe Kent.
  • The Thomas Crown Affair. Four or five soundtrack songs, including Sting's cover of "Windmills of Your Mind" and Nina Simone's "Sinnerman," and then some really nice Bill Conti piano jazz score.
  • Fight Club. I cannot believe nobody said this before now. The Dust Brothers.


Soundtracks:

  • Anything Tarantino. The man puts together awesome soundtracks.
  • The Transformers: The Movie. Yeah, I said it. "You've got the touch / You've got the power / Yeah!"

"FM" if you can find it.
It has no static at all, you know.

I got that also on cd. Stan Bush rules...lol

I loved the scene in "Boogie Nights" where Mark Walberg is just totally destroying that song (The Touch) when he's singing it in the recording studio.

The score to "Requiem for a Dream" (done by The Kronos Quartet) is pretty awesome. I've also lately been enjoying the soundtrack album for "Paranoia Agent" (anime that just ended its run on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block for those who don't know).

In terms of soundtracks, the soundtracks for Tarantino flicks are almost universally awesome. My current fave is the one for "Kill Bill Volume 1."

I listen to Purple Rain at least twice a week, so much that I forgot it was actually from a movie.

You'd figure somebody with PRINCE as thier avatar would have remembered to include that gem.

One of the only soundtrack/scores I have ever bought was for The Usual Suspects. You really feel the emotion of the film, and his blending of the Verbal and Keyser Soze themes was tremendous.

Honorable mention goes to American Wedding. Lots of singles you heard on the radio, plus a fun ditty called "Fever For the Flava." I forget what band sings it, but it's a pretty good (if risque) song.

Judgment Night
both Trainspotting soundtracks
Run Lola Run
Go

and since someone mentioned anime soundtracks, I'd have to go with both Hellsing soundtracks, as well.

That'd be Hot Action Cop (allmusic.com).
