Everything about The Yellow Submarine was fantastic, OST included. I've found the Natural Born Killers soundtrack to be nicely diverse, and the Lost Highway soundtrack to be evenly centered. Of the more recent ones I own, I like a lot of them. Admittedly there's a track here or there I haven't the patience to listen to, especially with the recent era ones, but I see good overall.

Garden State is easily my fave all-time, and more recently the Juno OST.

Heh... We're talking about scores, aren't we? I'll never learn to fully analyze whether soundtrack or score is implied when the word in question is soundtrack. It confuses me to the rutty end.
chibiyusa 9 years, 10 months ago at Jan 22 2:29 -
Uh... you mean there's a difference?
For me I usually tend to apply to word "score" as to the actual written music.

Anyway... I'm really digging the music from Juno too. By all means I feel like I should hate it but it's really catchy...

But I really love the Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

I've always seen soundtracks as accompanying (sometimes included in the actual movie) music often by various artists, with the scoring done by everyone's favorite maestro or something to that effect. Not too tight as far as qualifications go on either end, but certainly not the same thing.

Being a kaiju fan I naturally prefer the scoring done by Akira Ifukube, Mishiru Oshima, Masaru Sato, and maybe other ones that had no involvement with Godzilla vs Hedorah. Including Mothra's Song.
Clear up the matter?

Yep. Now for the rest of the internet to figure it out.

I totally adore the Dazed and Confused Soundtrack, but don't know how anyone couldn't.... I'm a big fan of the score for Ever After, too.

'Garden State' soundtrack was so much better than the film itself :)

also loved the 'Layer Cake' and 'Office Space' soundtracks.

Full marks to chibiyusa for saying the Juno soundtrack. Feels a bit strange having a Moldy Peaches revival 8 years on from first hearing them, but I'm not complaining. Nothing wrong with a bit of anti-folk music :)

Also quite keen on the Trainspotting soundtrack, although that's as much because it features quite a few of my favourite artists on it as anything else. Could have been improved by putting Choose Life on there instead of the extra release they did though - not much worthy of listening time on Trainspotting 2.

Sweet! I hardly get those these days :P (I don't think I was even the first to mention it on this thread)
To tell the truth I never even heard of the Moldy Peaches until Juno but hey, it's rather catchy so I'm not complaining.

Well, back in the days when I was on the grunge bandwagon, "Singles" probably ranked rather high. Some of those tracks still hold merit today.

The electronic music fan in me liked the soundtrack to the George Clooney version of "Solaris", as well as "Legend". Though "Legend" was mostly for Tangerine Dream employing Jon Anderson and Bryan Ferry for vocalists on two songs.

I've listened to the Castlevania: Symphony of the Night soundtrack as of late. Pure pleasure for anyone whose tastes span across all genres.

Sweeney Todd. Awesome soundtrack. Current play count on my iTunes: 176 and counting. (for all 20 tracks)
baum 9 years, 7 months ago at May 16 15:44 -
I've listened to the soundtrack to "Desperado" more than I've listeened to all other soundtracks combined, and more than most non-soundtrack albums. Why? Two words: "Los" and "Lobos," which can be loosely translated from the Spanish as "the freaking musical geniuses making up the best band in America over the last 25 years."

The soundtracks to Robert Rodriguez's other films are also listenable, although he started doing most of the composition himself during and after "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" and, while he's an okay composer, he's not Los Lobos.

Most of the soundtracks produced by Ry Cooder are also excellent, especially "Paris, Texas" and "The Long Riders."
Other good 'uns included John Lurie's "Mystery Train" soundtrack, and the soundtracks for "Until the End of the World", "The Future is Unwritten", "Babel" and, of course, "The Harder They Come." And let's not forget the eternally memorable soundtrack from "Willy Wonka."

Score "Somewhere in Time"

Soundtracks: About a Boy, Flashdance (yah, I'm old) and the smarmiest, most foot-tappingly irresistible soundtrack of all time....Footloose (Footloose, everybody cut Footloose)

5. Streets Of Fire - A guilty pleasure for me, I must admit.

4. Juno - Yeah, I really do like this soundtrack. So, y'know.....
shut up.

3. The Graduate - I've only had one time in my life where an older lady tried to seduce me ( unsuccesfully, I might add). Unfortunately, it was late one night offa North Ave., near downtown Chicago. And I think that she expected either money or drugs in exchange.
At least, I think it was a she. The darkness of the night combined with "her" facial hair really prevented me from making a fair assesment.

2. Saturday Night Fever - You can tell by the way that I use my walk that I'm a woman's man.
No, seriously..... you can.

1. Purple Rain - Y'know, I've been to alot hotels in my time, & I have yet to walk into a lobby that has a girl masturbating with a magazine. Or with my luck, maybe I have, but didn't get there until after security threw her out.

My favourite has to be 'Lost in Translation'.
All of the songs on there compliment the film perfectly and sound just as good when standing alone. In any mood I can listen to this film and just feel quite complete.

Other top soundtracks are
Amelie
Braveheart
Romeo and Juliet

I love the songs that feature in the 'Moulin Rouge'. The arrangement of them was just genius, but most of the other tracks there are hideous!

I give full backing to
'Life Aquatic' and 'Garden State'
PvtCaboose91 9 years, 6 months ago at Jun 15 12:49 -
On my computer I have tonnes and tonnes of movie soundtracks. A few of my favourites:

Casino Royale (David Arnold)
Live Free or Die Hard (Marco Beltrami)
Rambo (Brian Tyler)
28 Days Later (John Murphy)
28 Weeks Later (John Murphy)

My favourite soundtrack at the moment is the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. Lots of good post-punk and 80's stuff, along with a few classical/baroque pieces from the film.

Just downloaded the Life Aquatic soundtrack a few days ago. The song "Ping Island/Lightening Strike Rescue Op" is one of my favourite pieces to ever come from a film. Love it!

One of my all time favourites has to be Air's work on The Virgin Suicides soundtrack. Lovely.

Oh, man, I agree with so many of these! Definitely Requiem for a Dream, you can't pass that up. Anything Yann Tiersan, like Amelie and Goodbye, Lenin. Reservoir Dogs :))), I've got that one in my car just now. Oh, and Lost in Translation...someone said it up there.

"Garden State" ranks up there with being super cool and chill. "Rushmore" is solid as well.

My list of 10:
1. Kill Bill Vol 1 was pretty awesome, Vol 2 was pretty good as well.
2. Princess Mononoke had an awesome score.
3. The Sound of Music, an all time favourite.
4. High Fidelity, rocking soundtrack there too.
5. Forrest Gump was filled with great classic rock and pop.
6. The Moulin Rouge soundtrack was perfect for the movie.
7. School of Rock!! The title track is worth the price.
8. Superbad from last year had an awesome 70s inspired score and musical selections.
9. Recently, the Once soundtrack has really made an impression.
10. The Matrix soundtrack was pretty awesome, used well in the movie too.

Like a lot of you have already mentioned, any Wes Anderson or Sophia Coppola film seems to have a superb soundtrack.
