Now, this is gonna be fun!
Because who doesn’t love a solid movie soundtrack?!?!
Some of my favorites are Repo Man, Valley Girl, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing…
And who can forget Grease, right…?
Let’s hear from AskReddit users about their favorite movie soundtracks!
“O Brother, Where Art Thou?
One evening as the sun went down And the jungle fires were burning…
Love me some Soggy Bottom Boys!”
A great soundtrack of alternative ’90s bangers.
One of my first CDs.”
The use of long shots with the soundtrack is just stellar.
Uses Mad World so well and when Frank is around the ambient track called Manipulated Living.
“How To Train Your Dragon.
As a composer, it’s a TEXTBOOK example of a phenomenal film score.”
Daft Punk carried half of the movie.
The rest was carried by the effects team and some of the actors.”
The movie? Not so much.
“Queen of the D**ned.
Movie is awful, soundtrack is fantastic.”
This is a good list.
“Dazed and Confused
From Dusk til Dawn
Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion
Conan the Barbarian
Saturday Night Fever.”
Look them up!
“John Williams and Danny Elfman entirely shaped my childhood.
In the ’90s, while everyone was buying CDs of their favorite bands I was saving and spending all my money on film scores. By 2000 I had over 100 of them.
I felt like such a weirdo.”
“The soundtrack for Hercules absolutely slapped.
Using upbeat gospel music and singers was absolutely genius and served the feel and plot of the movie perfectly.
Also The Hunchback of Notre Dame simply needs no introduction or justification.”
A work of art.
“Trainspotting’s soundtrack is iconic.
Danny Boyle is a fuc**ng genius and really knew what he was doing with that film.
It’s a real work of art.”
Phil Collins outdid himself.
I read a tweet once that had me in stitches: “Phil Collins created that Tarzan soundtrack with the passion of someone whose parents were personally k**led by a leopard”.”
“Dazed and Confused.
I cannot hear “Sweet Emotion” without picturing a GTO circling a parking lot.”
Struck a chord.
“Into The Wild.
Man, Eddie Vedder and the movie in general struck some chords I didn’t expect they would.”
“The Pulp Fiction soundtrack is head and shoulders above all others a stand alone awesome soundtrack, and inextricably linked with the film.
I’ve had that soundtrack in regular rotation, weirdly without getting sick of it, since the movie came out when I was about 15 years old.”
The Vietnam era.
“Good Morning Vietnam, has an awesome soundtrack………as does the TV show, China Beach…….both using all the classics of the era of the Vietnam War.
Both just really cool soundtracks.”
