I don't listen to movie scores that much, but I'm always interested in cool soundtracks to movies or shows to sample new music.

I picked one up for the movie Love and a .45, which I never saw, and I love it. It's got the Roger Williams classic, "King of the Road" and newer stuff (at the time), like the Meat Puppets and The Flaming Lips.

The Singles soundtrack redefined and invigorated the feature film soundtrack market. Also, blahblahblahEarly90sSeattleScenblah, but, still, a great collection of music.

If you don't mind bits of score included on a soundtrack, the Rushmore soundtrack is also fantastic.

Anything Star Wars is good, my personal favorite is the Empire Strikes Back soundtrack. Shawshank Redemption is outstanding. X-Men is underrated. I've also been known to enjoy the Untouchables soundtrack.

There's plenty of others I could list (like The Silence of the Lambs), but I'll leave it at that.

Less than Zero (the first actual "Soundtrack Album" I remember). Soundtracks were doing crazy good record business for a little while in the late 80s.

I think the best soundtrack album is either:

Evita - just good originals and well delivered.

or

Forest Gump - some of the classic songs of our age spread out over 40 years.

My favorite movie soundtrack was from a movie back in the 80's titled "Trick Or Treat". The whole soundtrack was done by the metal trio band FASTWAY. The movie had cameo's by Ozzy Osbourne as a priest and Gene Simmons as a radio DJ.

The Singles soundtrack is great indeed (some gems on there, such as 'Birth Ritual') but the bestest soundtrack ever has to be the one to the Judgment Night movie.

Some of the songs always blow my mind, especially the FNM/BooYaa Tribe tune 'another body murdered'
it also has
Cypress Hill with Pearl Jam
Cypress Hill with Sonic Youth
Del da Funkie Homosapien with Dinosaur Jr.
And several other great songs and a few ok ones.

AWARulz, I gotta agree with you strongly on both counts.

I'd like to add in the soundtrack to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, one of my favorites. Yes, this is straight out of the theatre, but it hits on so many genres.

A good soundtrack album is one you'll want to listen to over and over. The music should be important to the film.

Many soundtracks have only one or two good songs on them, and the others are just kind of there. A good soundtrack is one where everything works, and works together.

The first, and one of the best, soundtrack I ever bought was The Wizard of Oz.

The Big Easy - Good Bad Movie - great cajun tunes that all helped set the tone & mood for the movie

The Big Lebowski- For the Dylan gem, as well as for what Townes Van Zant, Elvis Costello, The Gypsy Kings and even Kenny freakin' Rogers bring to the table. The only drawback to it is that there's no Credence, man.

She's The One- I really dislike the movie itself, but there's a whole CD chock-full of Tom Petty goodness that went with it.

There's Something About Mary- And it's for all the songs on there NOT named "Build Me Up Buttercup". It's more because Jonathan Richman is my own personal Jeebus, plus this was the CD that introduced The Dandy Warhols into my life.

I agree with "Trick or Treat", "Singles", "The Crow" and would also mention "Demon Knight".

All 4 of those are hard/metal/grunge soundtracks, but all worth a listen if you like that type of music.

I have to admit I admire Tripod's love of the movie Trick or Treat - Sammy Kerr coming out of the speaker when the album is played backwards absolutely rules! This movie came out when I was 16 or 17 and we went to see it 2 or 3 times at the movies - the first movie I've paid to see more than one time and only one of about three in my life.

The soundtrack to the movie DUDES was pretty good, featuring Janes Addiction, WASP, Steve Vai, and a host of unknown artists.

Resevoir Dogs is a favorite, it includes the Steven Wright as a DJ bits between songs.

The Heavy Metal soundtrack was a favorite back when I was a kid, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Sammy Hagar, Journey, and other late 70s, early 80s AOR superstars.

And, not to sound gay or anything, but I have been known to bust out the GREASE soundtrack on occasion.

"Tommy" is by far my favorite Broadway soundtrack....."Cats" is pretty good too.

For strictly orchestra music....Rocky I and II soundtracks.

Wow... no one has mentioned "Garden State," which was sort of the soundtrack du jour for last year. So I'd recommend that one, but mostly because I'm a big fan of Zero 7, the Shins, any cover of a DCfC/Postal Service song, and Coldplay's "Don't Panic."

In that same vein, "Wicker Park" is good.

Oh, and "Vanilla Sky," but then people might point out that I'm one of only 3 people in the world who appreciated that movie.

I cannot agree more. I tend to do my best coding with Judgement Night blaring in the earphones. I never actually saw the movie, but a friend of mine had the CD playing one day and I had to pick up my own copy.

Depends on what you mean by soundtrack. Do you mean music as a score for the movie or songs chosen to be in the movie? Music composed for a movie Soundtracks that strongly evoke the mood and fit great include any of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns, especially "Once Upon A time in the West" of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly." Also the LOTR Scores. For music cobbled to a movie I like "Good Morning Vietnam"
