 Film soundtracks

I was at a mates last night and we ended up watching the wanderers. This got us thinking what other films have great soundtracks. What's everyone else's views on great soundtracks

Lots of good soundtracks. My favourite would probably either be Local Hero or Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence. Both can make me tear up.

Lots of great stuff from Westerns - "The Magnificent Seven" for example.

Likewise the so called spaghetti westerns.

Trivia question - which song from a 1950s Western won an Oscar ?

Quadrophenia for me. Also like the classical music in a clockwork orange.

AGYG did win an Oscar - but not for a specific song.

Good call though.

A wee clue - the singer's son became a well known actor, and three grandchildren also in the business.

As soon as I saw the thread heading I was thinking Human Traffic.

Would have been interesting to see if the live events they had planned for this summer would have been any good or a terrible cash in.

Straight Outta Compton has a good sound track but I don't think that would go down too well on here.

Millerโ€™s Crossing and Cinema Paradiso among my favourites.
Is High Noon the western with the Oscar winning song?

''Trivia question - which song from a 1950s Western won an Oscar ?''

'Do Not Forsake Me, O My Darling' sung by Tex Ritter as the theme song to 'High Noon'. It's official title was 'The Ballad of High Noon '. Ritter's other claim to fame, of course, was an entry in the Dictionary of Rhyming Slang'.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Gladiator, Star Wars (all of them) and Interstellar are probably my top 3, but it is really difficult as there are so many amazing film scores/soundtracks to pick from.

One that sticks in my mind is the soundtrack from 'The Commitments' a film released in 1991 about a soul band in Ireland.

Highlander if you are a Queen fan.

Too many to mention but it just shows how important it can be to the commercial success of a movie

I think its mutually beneficial a lot of the time. A lot of good tracks have had new life breathed into them after featuring on popular films.

Steelers Wheel - Stuck in the middle
House of Pain - Jump Around
Jackie Wilson - Higher and Higher
Gary Jules - Mad World
Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings

There are way too many to list.

When you get someone that can connect the right song to the right scene in a film both the film and the artist benefit.
