Movie soundtracks
« on: January 02, 2017, 05:25:57 PM »
   What is the best movie soundtrack ever, based on the music as a stand alone piece and/or how appropriate it was for the film, without regard to the quality of the film itself?
   Off the top of my pointed head I can't think of anything the beats The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

'Singles' soundtrack. The movie, not so much.

Apocalypse Now. The use of The Doors "The End" in the helicopter/hotel ceiling fan scene, Wagners "Ride of the Valkeries" in the attack scene and more.

I like "The Big Lebowski" soundtrack: The Man in Me by Dylan, numerous CCR ("Did you find my Credence tape?"), Just Dropped In... by the First Edition, The Rolling Stones "Dead Flowers"...

Can't believe I didn't think of that. It certainly hits the "appropriate for the film" test.

   I meant to include the qualifier of soundtracks that had an original score written specifically for the film. Would you listen to your suggested best just as a work of music, driving in your vehicle or sitting in your easy chair reading a homebrew magazine?
