There should be only one title you like throughout a soundtrack. Not necessarily the whole soundtrack.

Am I clear enough?

Aw, c'mon. It has to be "Misirlou" in Pulp Fiction. It's too perfect and one of the most famous opening title tracks ever. I even actually liked what the Black Eyed Peas did with it.

As for soundtrack in a film, Garden State's soundtrack is amazing... as is Kill Bills. I own them both on CD.

Friday Night Lights - Explosions in the Sky is a band to watch.  They capture Texas high school Football like no other film score.  Amazing.  Look out for them.

Fast and the Furious - What can I say I like techno and hip hop.

Mortal Kombat Theme Song  - Nothing more needs to be said.

Domino's opening credit theme sequence was pretty awesome.  

Girlfight's theme song was pretty cool.  As was Havoc's.  


I'm a sucker for opening sequences.  I like when filmmakers actually have a credit sequence at the beginning.  That seems to be forgotten nowadays.  Usually all that is shown today is the production studio, A (insert director's name here) film, and the title.  I kind of hate that too, because director's are that big headed as to call a whole film their own, considering hundreds upon hundreds of people are required to make a film, let alone the writer who actually came up with the STORY.  If it's anyone's film it should be the producers.  They are the ones that go up on Oscar Night.  Not the director.    

But usually the music that accompanies a credit sequence is awesome.  I love how music and the credits always match up with the background.  

And for video games, nothing beats Final Fantasy or Metal Gear Solid.  Both awesome soundtracks that can stand alone by themselves.  God of War surprised me as well.  Very good "Gladiator-esque" Roman score.

I think the Psycho score is amazing, especially the opening theme.

the forest Gump soundtrack I like.

The Pulp fiction opening theme.

Mr. Blonde torturing the cop to "Stuck in the Middle with you"

...that's all I could really think of right now.


"Picture Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd" - George Carlin
"I have to sign before you shoot me?" - Navin Johnson
"It'll take time to restore chaos" - George W. Bush
"Harry, I love you!" - Ben Affleck
"What are you looking at, sugar t*ts?" - The man without a face
"Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death." - Exodus 31:15
"No one ever expects The Spanish Inquisition!" - The Spanish Inquisition
"Matt Damon" - Matt Damon

Goodfellas. Unfortunately the soundtrack on the CD is not the same as the movie. The CD just has all the classical tunes, but none of the pop or rock songs that were in the movie. Pulp Fiction had a pretty good soundtrack too.

The soundtrack for Alien3 is probably my favourite. Elliot Goldenthal created some really disturbing tracks for that movie. Great IMO.

For entire soundtrack (and not one or two pieces) I would say the soundtrack from either:

Forrest Gump

The Big Chill

Grease 2

The Commitments


And I'm kidding about Grease 2.

Quoted from dogglebe


And I'm kidding about Grease 2.



Thank... God...

Mine would be:

Apocalypse Now: The use of "The End" by The Doors is appropriate. This is my favourite example of a song used in a movie. They've got some other great tracks in there as well, like "Satisfaction" and "Ride of the Valkeries". Plus that really trippy score that Coppola and his father wrote struck the perfect chord, created the perfect mood for the film.

The Exorcist: The use of Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" was incredible. Is there a more fitting piece of music?

The Silence of the Lambs: Howard Shore's score is just incredible. Never playing the scares, always playing the emotions. It's a wonderful soundtrack.

Aliens: One of the best scores ever written for a film. Good old James Horner. The music in the climax is so thrilling and so pulse-pounding you just wanna rip your hair it. It's fantastic. He and Cameron would do Titanic together, another brilliant soundtrack and they're doing Avatar was well.

And finally

Jaws: I had to say it, the score is so great. The main theme (like so many of John Williams' other works) will go down in history as one of the most memorable of any movie. Plus there's that great drinking song. I have only a few major things I want to accomplish in my life time before I die, and singing that song while I'm blind drunk is one of them. Of course, anytime I'm blind drunk I've forgotten all about wanting to sing it while drunk, so I always have to wait till next time, where I forget all over again. But one day.... one day....

There are so many others as well. I wanna mention Boogie Nights for using my favourite song of all time ("It's A Living Thing by ELO). 2001, Dr. Strangelove, Schindler's List and Edward Scissorhands all had great soundtracks as well. Wow. I've said way too much in this post.


Cheers, Chismeister.

Jerry Goldsmith's theme for "Alien"

That score still scares the sh!t out of me.

The Nekromantik soundtrack. The score is hauntingly beautiful yet gripping and unnerving. It's so good, it makes the images onscreen even more disturbing than they already are and considering what the story's about, that's saying a lot.

these are the favorite ones of mine...
James Newton Howard's Signs (especially The Hand of Fate - both parts) and The Village... both are really great...
John Williams's Sleepers
Philippe Sarde's Lord of the Flies (I mean the 1990 version... the parts with the choirs are awesome)
James Horner's Chumscrubber(especially Digging the Montage)
Elliot Goldenthal's Titus and Pet Sematary (I love the music on the very beginning of the film, that child voice singing "la la la"... it's sounds so ominous)
